Membrane Media Library has a configuration option specifying how often it should scan for new media files. With only periodic scanning, we may leave long stretches of time before a new media file becomes available for browsing.

• Add a function allowing the user to request an immediate scan (currently only available by restarting Membrane Media Library).
• Consider improving Membrane Media Library to watch for change events in the source media directory and trigger its own scans when new files are detected.

Each server shown by Membrane Control's media interface now shows an action menu with a "Scan for media" option, for use in triggering an immediate scan. We investigated a more responsive and automatic scan function involving file and directory event watchers, but decided to go with just the manual scan solution for now.
