New filter request - media_items

Hi there,

I humbly ask for new filter in WordPress, in file wp-admin/includes/media.php, function get_media_items(), aplied on output after the media files have been processed. Please see attached file (based on 3.2.1 version of the file) where I would like to have it.

Purpose: I am developing a plug-in that would add mass-rename/update to the gallery items (e.g. I upload 50 pictures into gallery and want to set their label to the same value for all 50 of them, so I don't need to edit it 50 times, but do it just once). For this I want to add one more line to the list of media items where I put the code for this functionality. For this injection of my code I ask for the new filter.

Thanks, Honza

Hello, is there a chance the filter would be added to WordPress?

Hello honza.skypala, sorry you never got a response.

get_media_items() is one of the functions which aren't used by core anymore, because of the Media overhaul in WordPress 3.5. Adding a filter here won't be much useful.
