This is a simple technique which tells Android not to index media files within a certain folder. That prevents them appearing in your gallery or music library. You might want to do this if you have some application which has placed files on your sdcard that are: a) Crappy icons or splash screens specific to the app b) Not actually images but read as such by Android meaning ugly blanks in your gallery c) Audio files that are just clips for the app and not music (sat nav voices for example).




This trick WILL NOT stop the application from working since it references the files directly but it will stop them appearing in the gallery. In the video you will notice that I have some custom icons in a folder but I cannot use this trick with that folder as BetterCut takes its pictures from your gallery so would no longer see them
