Searching specific type of files (e.g. Music) with Google
It is rather straight forward to search for a particular file type with Google. Suppose you are searching for an audio files of vivaldi's music.
intitle:(index.of) (mp3|mp4|avi) vivaldi -html -htm -php -jsp -cf
will give many pages that contain media files with the name 'vivaldi'. To understand what each of the above keywords and parameters do:
- Search in the title for X.
- This is a parameter -- most of directory listings will have the world 'index of' (or index_of) index.of is shorthand for anything matching index, then a gap (space, underscore,...), then of
- Search for X or Y or Z.
- The keyword
- -html -htm -php -jsp -cf
- Don't return pages with html, htm, php, etc., in them (these are web pages not media files.).
