Localize Media

<10kB. Updated 2018-11-26.

To use the add-on, select your cards in the Browse screen, and use the 'Localize Images' option in the Notes menu. The add-on will scan your cards for any remote media links and inlined images, eg: <img src="http://example.com/image.jpg"> <img src="data:image/jpeg;base64, ....."> [sound:http://example.com/file.mp3] If any are detected, the remote links will be downloaded, and the references converted into local references like [sound:file.mp3] instead. If you encounter an error while downloading, you can repeat the operation and previously localized notes will not need to be localized again. Updated 26 Nov 2018 to support downloading audio files as well. Updated 20 Aug 2018 to support converting inlined images into files in the media folder. Updated 23 Apr 2018 to fix the action triggering on other browser commands.

This works really well, but in the future could you make an option such that it automatically localizes images/audio ? Then I don't have to select a lot of notes every time to localize them.

It works, however if you place your text cursor in a field and press localize media, it gets stuck on "succesfully processed x/x notes".

我遇到的问题就是复制粘贴了一些图片用来制卡,但是没办法同步到云端。其他设备上都看不到这些图片,通过Tools-check media发现missing file和unused file基本是一样的文件。接着下载这个插件,在BROWSE里面选中出现问题的卡片,然后选NOTES-localize media,似乎成功修复了这个问题。希望能帮到其他同胞。

The source code for this add-on is also available at https://github.com/dae/ankiplugins/blob/master/localizemedia/__init__.py

So it seems to be an add-on from the anki-developer
