[resolved] Video files are detected as folders/categories

Hello

I have installed Piwigo on a Synololgy NAS in order to index my existing images. For that reason I have softlinked my image folder into Piwigo and added a site that points to that folder. When I synchronize the site I chose "directories only" but a lot of video files are added as directories/categories.

Two examples of a file, using ls -lh is:
-rwxrwxrwx 1 admin users 138M Feb 14  2011 MVI_1013.MOV.mp4
-rwxrwxrwx 1 admin users 14M May 12  2008 ./2005/2005_02_19_odense_pakket/MVI_1392.AVI

Does anybody know how to fix it?

Alternatively if someone can point me to the detection code I can add some debugging (I can program in PHP).

Re: [resolved] Video files are detected as folders/categories

Solved:
Like many other people I have had installed Synologys Photostation which indexes all photos and creates thumbnails which it puts in folders called @eaDir. These folders are not visible via file sharing, only when you log into the box via SSH. Or when Piwigo runs on the box.

Fix: Uninstall Photostation (which most people would have done already when they try out Piwigo):
SSH into the box
cd into the folder in which you have images
Run:
find . -type d -name "@eaDir" -print0 | xargs -0 rm -rv
This will find all directories named @eaDir and delte them, printing the name of each item deleted including files in the folder.
