v18 file search broken in Kodi 18.3
#1
Ever since Kodi updated to 18.3, files search button no longer returns results but "no results found". I've reverted back to 18.1 until we have kodi 18.4 fix this.

It's good to know that you are helping us figure out what the problem is.

Global search doesn't do the same thing and it only searchs meta data. If you have nas Network Attached Storage containing all my music videos in the music videos folder. Say you search a artist. All music videos with the artist or key word show up in results and secondly it can play all the music videos in that one search... only in music videos I don't set its content type because I've not added meta data to my music videos. Thus the search found in kodi 18.1 works perfectly. ie common key word search returning only what's in the one big folder.

 Excuse me we have it since kodi 17. When your in the list of videos, use the mouse to open slide blade menu n there you can sort layout of your files n next to that is SEARCH. Say sorry you look ignorant. I've screenshot it here. Fix it to previous code of search to that of kodi 18.1 or 18.2. 18.1 works.

Here's my link of screenshot:

That still only searchs your library (scraped videos) not a folder of files (non-scraped videos) though.

Yeah I know. Please fix ver. 18.3 to 18.1 because it can't even search or scrap what's in the a smb folder link path in my NAS, if the specified file path has NO CONTENT TYPE set. I'm not setting content type for music videos because for some reason having a content type for music videos won't let me search by music artist.it only works if you enter the title. But as you know, if you want to play songs from a artist you have to enter artist name, not the title. So the only way search of music videos could work was having artist and song name in the title of each video and set content type to none in the file path of my library.

Note: if you have corrected this in v.18.3 where my music videos can now be set to CONTENT TYPE - MUSIC VIDEOS. And now are searchable by artist of which returns all songs in my library with that specified artist. (Title,artist,album, etc) please indicate your work on this, or better make a YouTube video of this working as described above.

Regards,

Canice

Search will only find videos stored in the database so nothing will be found for if the content type is set to None.
