I love VLC but would love it even more if I could get the media library to watch a folder so it updates when new movies download. Is there a way to do this?
I'm on a mac.

I've created a tiny open-source app for macOS and Windows called VLC Scheduler which does exactly that. It watches the folders specified in its configuration file (vlcscheduler.yaml) for new media files and adds them to VLC. Minimal configuration for macOS:
sources: - path: /Users/<username>/Movies/VLC/
