I am trying to find mp3 and mp4 on my external hd.
I tried to follow these methods here.
This did not work
kind: mp3 kind: mp4
This was the only method that would seem to work.
find / -iname '*mp4' 2>/dev/null find / -iname '*mp3' 2>/dev/null
I am using el capitan. After I click the other button the File Extension option does not seem to exist anymore.
Start a search with Command+F. Click on the '+' icon on the far side of the taskbar Select the type from the 'kind' pull-down menu. Select 'other' and then find 'File extension'
I don't see show all or file extension anywhere.
Open a Find Window (cmd-f) or do a spotlight search and select "show all" Hit the little "+" icon (to the right of the 'save' button) Select File Type as a search criteria and select the correct one. Rerun the search.
This didn't seem to do anything.
