I have noticed 2 problems.
1) calls to ffmpeg to get metadata after url extraction are single threaded, whereas those for files are multithreaded. The completion of a plugin refresh is therefore delayed while the urls are handled sequentially. Can these calls be multithreaded?
2) the priority of ffmpeg execution is such that any playing video takes precidence and the ffmpeg calls take minutes to complete. Can the priority be increased?

Re: ffmpeg

1) no, ther are not run in parallel (unless you mead updates and additions)
2) I can't control the priority. In any case, playback priority would be highest always, so I would not change this even if I could
