VLC not scanning for media files on FP3

When VLC scans my phone for media files. It reports that there are none. If I try using the Media Library Preferences to tell it where there are media files it reports that that every directory is empty apart from any subdirectories. However I can open media files in VLC from ghost commander. This happens with both the F-Droid and the Aurora versions.

It does have storage permission enabled so this can’t be the reason.

Works for me, in the Internal Storage as well as on the external SD card.
VLC 3.2.12 (F-Droid)


Hmm… I have
VLC 3.2.12 (F-Droid)

I didn’t install 0.12 fast enough … luckily, because then it got retracted for the time being :slight_smile: .
Doesn’t mean it must be 0.12’s fault, but comparing is harder that way.

Maybe I’ll just hang on till the next version and see what happens.

This is crazy. VLC is working properly now. As far as I know I have not done anything that could affect it,

Welcome to software, doing software things :slight_smile: .
