Configure the auto media scanning to ignore certain folders or certain files(ex *.3gp))
Hi. I use a call recorder software to make recording of certain calls and it stores them as *.3gp files in its own separate folder. I also have huge collection of songs(mostly mp3s and some videos) which i maintain in a separate folder. I only use the internal memory of my S2 as i find that quite sufficient.
The automatic media scanning that takes place scans all the memory for media files and includes all the audio files in the preinstalled music player. This causes a problem as all the songs and the audio recordings appear in the music players library. So whenever i play music with the shuffle activated, sometimes the recordings start playing
I was wondering if there was a way to configure the media scanning to (say),
1. exclude a certain folder from the scan, or
2. scan ONLY a certain folder for media, or
3. exclude certain file extensions, or
I was hoping someone wud help me out with this problem.
