"Verify media file" faulty

Reported by: starcapt's profile StarCapt Owned by:

Severity: normal Version: 2.9

When installing a media file, clicking on "Verify media file" can give false impression.

For example: Install "http://mysite/JoeDoaks.flv" Clicking "Verify" produces a "Success" result even though the actual name of the file is: "http://mysite/MP-JoeDoaks.flv"

The flash player will not play "http://mysite/JoeDoaks.flv" since it is not the true name of any installed file.

I tried to reproduce what you reproted, but I was not able to because the problem description is too vague. Can you please provide detailed steps how to reproduce? I read "installing a media file" as uploading a media file but that did lead to nothing.

Maybe the problem was that "Verify media file" returned success on redirects?

Where is this Verify Media functionality?

I cant find a similar string in trunk, and i cant find a reference to verification in Media Upload/select or TinyMCE's Flash editor.

In both cases, they accept 404 url's and do not attempt to check if its valid.

marking as close to find ticket again if someone cant come up with a location in core (I think it might be in a popular media plugin?)
