    Hey guys, I leave MT running on my computer all the time and whenever I add new files to folders I've already shared, I have to open the webui and tell MT that I want to share them too. Is it possible we can have it automatically share those new files?

      Take a look at section 2.1.5 "Set Autoscan Properties" of the MediaTomb User Interface documentation. You will need to set "Scan Mode" to "Inotify" and also select the "Recursive" option for the folders you have shared. This feature will only work with Linux kernels that have Inotify support enabled. The alternative is to used timed scans which is also explained in the MediaTomb documentation.
