Summary0014009: Scan progress should show scanning file x of total files to be scanned
DescriptionFor purposes of progress it seems more useful to show file x of the total amount of files y that are included in the current scan (instead of continually adjusting y). A % completed would also be useful information.

Both provide a better indication of how long scanning may still take.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build

I never wanted to implement this, at the initial evaluation of files to be scanned would unnecessarily delay the start of scanning. That said, I understand the value of better UI and since the performance is no longer such an issue (no seek penalty for SSD drives, etc.), I'd propose the following:

Increment both X and Y in the '%X of %Y' in parallel. I.e. X will be (slowly) increment by the scanning process as is currently implemented. But, Y will be quickly increased by another process (internally probably another thread?) that will only go through all the folders to be scanned and will count all the audio/video files to be scanned.

Note: If anytime happens that X>Y (which can happen either in the beginning of scan or later when new files are added to filesystem), Y will be updated to match X.

Assigning to Ludek to review and either implement or possibly re-assign to Petr.

I am not keen to implement this because of the performance penalty.
