Description

A little attempt to force a run of the media indexer for given files.

Background

When you copy media files to your webOS device (say mp3 songs) you might encounter a missing file from time to time. Especially if you use SFTP to copy your files you will almost every time end with some songs which wasn't catched by the indexer and therefore doesn't appear in the music player. This app helps you to fix it directly on the device.

How does it work?

The app presents you with a list of directories and files from /media/internal (USB partition). When you tap a directory you will enter it. When you tap a file the app will read the first byte of the file and directly write it back. This will keep the file intact but force a rerun of the indexer on the given file. For your convenience there is a "Touch All" button which will touch every file in this directory (not recursive).

Warranty?

There isn't any. Use it on your own risk.
