Local media

I get an error on the server about Error downloading data from the server. - Arg_timeoutExeption.

I have around 50 gigs of music videos. I know that it isn't really designed for this after searching the error. I thought that it may have to scan but it still isn't working. Most of the files are MP4

    I removed some of the media and then opened Plex. It showed all the media. I kept copying small pieces and then reopen Plex and it eventually would do the same error. I think that it is a timeout that it hit while scanning the entire local media library. Wonder is there is a way to increase the timeout....
