Indexing Files on a Mac: Made Simple with Open-Source

Spencer is back with another Tech Tip, and this week he is talking about how to index files when using Mac's spotlight search.

Macs' spotlight (finder) feature does not work when connected to a Samba share, which can be incredibly frustrating when dealing with a large database of media files that you need to index.

Traditionally, the only way around this would be to create that index locally. However, with Rocky Linux and a newer version of Samba, we now can deploy a feature called Elasticsearch Spotlight Indexing.

Check out this step-by-step tutorial on how to deploy this for your environment to streamline your video production workflow.
