Scan content folder for videos in other languages

I have downloaded the Spanish videos in bulk and transferred them into the content folder. The problem is that when I scan for the videos nothing shows in the topic tree. The videos are not annotated and so cannot be accessed.
I tried scanning just for Spanish annotation videos by using the command:

kalite manage videoscan -les

but this results in errors:

File /usr/share/kalite/python-packages/django/core/management/, line 224, in run_from_argv self.execute(*args, **options.dict)

What is the best way to get the videos in other languages to show in the topic tree under the tab VIDEOS in manage settings?

Hi elvistek,

Are you using the latest version of KA Lite (0.16.6)? The videoscan has been superseded by the retrievecontentpack command, and you can install the latest version of es using the command below:

kalite manage retrievecontentpack download es

If you placed the videos in the right directory, the topic tree for spanish should now be shown as available and a majority of the videos should now be listed as downloaded.

Hope that helps!

Hi @aronasorman,

I had downloaded the spanish pack from Manage>Languages, but for some reason the downloaded spanish videos were not recognized. Thank you and this worked well.
