Refresh Media References

<10kB. Updated 2017-08-07. Only supports Anki 2.0.
The author has shared 65 other item(s).


Adds an entry in the Tools menu that clears the webview cache (hotkey: Ctrl+Alt+M). This will effectively refresh all media files used by your cards and templates, allowing you to display changes to external files without having to restart Anki. The add-on will also update the modification time of your media collection which will force an upload of any updated files on the next synchronization with AnkiWeb. Note: Might lead to increased memory consumption if used excessively COMPATIBILITY This add-on only works with Anki's stable release branch (2.0.x ≥ 2.0.30). The 2.1 beta branch is not supported at this point in time.

Works. You're awesome Glutanimate. Thanks a lot!

Thanks to tip, this works on Anki 2.1.
FYI, in the "overview_refresh_media" folder I added a meta.json file to configure the name that shows up in the addon dialog box. It has one line:
{"name": "Refresh Media, Overview"}

you're doing the lord's work, Glutanimate! Thank you! (now I only have to copy and paste my HTML edits into the cards)

Thanks to the guy who gave the trick to make it work with 2.1. This addon is very useful to force Ankidroid to keep being synchronized with media when files like stylesheet are updated.

The addon is pretty good.
You can make it work on 2.1 by downloading from github and commenting out the line with "clearMemoryCaches()", it only loses part of it's functionality

sounds great but does not seem to be applicable to Anki 2.1 - If it is indeed so, I'd love to see an update :)
