Localize Media

<10kB. Updated 2018-11-26. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.


Designed for use with Anki 2.1.2+. Normally when you paste a remote image link into Anki, it downloads the image and puts it in your media folder. Previous Anki releases had a bug where this would not happen if the link didn't end with a recognizable file extension, leading to remote image links on your cards that stopped working when you were offline. This add-on will also convert any inlined images into files in your media folder. To use the add-on, select your cards in the Browse screen, and use the 'Localize Images' option in the Notes menu. 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.

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
