I have a well maintained Music library I’m adding to Jellyfin.
- My mp3s are all fully tagged and I don’t want Jellyfin to do any third party tag retrievals. In the library settings I unchecked all the “metadata downloaders”. This does what I want, right?
but the library scan is still super slow, so I enabled debug logging which leads to
- Jellyfin is extracting the album image from ever single mp3. That’s practically doing 15 times the same thing. Isn’t it reasonable when you get the art from 1 song to use it for the whole album and avoid unnecessary work?
Or is having the album art embedded in the mp3s unexpected?
Not even sure that’s the slow part, because I’ve ran ffprobe and ffmpeg manually and they return instantly. Adding a 19 songs album took 3m10s - relevant log after I moved and retagged an album. Most of the time is spent on whatever happens after "[DBG] Getting image size for item “Audio”.
