How can you tell the indexing engine that the folder contains .m4a files that are music only. Currenly it thinks my itunes music are also videos and displays them in the video section of the gallery.

Should mention that m4a are always audio files. Video is mp4.

nthn thats technically correct, apparently m4a and mp4 do have a lot in common and sailfish/linux thinks these are video files.

thanks nthn i accept the duplicate, still looking for an answer or workaround though.

It's most likely caused by a misconfiguration in 'tracker', the software which indexes the files.
