Media files are not being extracted

See original GitHub issue

I am not sure if i am doing something wrong but if i use the package.media_files as shown in the description, the resulted apkg archive contains all necessary files inside and they have correct values.

However i have checked %appdata%\Anki2\<profile_name>\ and this folder remains empty after i install the apkg file.

If i manually drag all my media files there, then everything works as expected.

@konhi I ran the code above as well and it seems that it is working and the .mp3 file gets copied to %appdata%Anki2\<profile>\\

The mistake which i was doing using images was this:

note = genanki.Note(MODEL, fields=['das', 'ten', 'test_meh.jpg'])  # test_meh.jpg won't be extracted
package = genanki.Package(deck, ['data/images/test_meh.jpg'])

The correct syntax is:

note = genanki.Note(MODEL, fields=['das', 'ten', '<img src=test_meh.jpg>'])  # test_meh.jpg gets extracted correctly
package = genanki.Package(deck, ['data/images/test_meh.jpg'])

I was under the impression that i could add the <img src="./{{Answer}}"> text inside the model and only mention the name of the files in the genanki.Note.

No i couldn’t fix the problem. Currently i am manually copying the images and audio files to the folder. (for example %appdata%/Anki2/<files>) and i am adding them by the relative path (./data_deck1/file) which seems to point to the folder.

So the answer is that package.media_files either does nothing or does not work
