What is a NOMEDIA file?

A NOMEDIA file is a file that is stored on an Android mobile device or on an external memory card that is connected to an Android device. It marks its enclosing folder as no multimedia data so that the folder will not be scanned and indexed by multimedia players. NOMEDIA files have no filename prefix and are called .Nomedia.

Using NOMEDIA files helps increase performance by turning off folders that do not need to be scanned. For example, a folder with thousands of songs or pictures can be excluded. NOMEDIA files can also be used to hide ads that appear in free apps when placed in the same directory of the ad. Many Android audio and video players and picture browsers (gallery, MP3 player, video player, etc.) recognize NOMEDIA files.

NOMEDIA files can be managed by utilities such as StudioKUMA .Nomedia Manager or Nomedia.
