Disable Library?

Is there a way to completely disable the Library function? I watch videos from a NAS with a large number of files. When I connect I get a spinning circle while the app tries to scan all my files. It never completes. I think that is what is happening. Was not a problem befor 5.5.

If you prefer, you can continue browsing files as you did before by tapping the Files icon on the home screen as this will revert to the previous UI.
