Based on this question, I can use this:

-inurl:(htm|html|php) in title:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +mp3 "name_of_what_I_am_looking_for"

To search for all mp3 files. So how can I modify that search to look for mp4 or other video file formats?

1 Answer 1


Try something like this:



-inurl:(htm|html|php) in title:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(mp4|avi|mkv) "name_of_what_I_am_looking_for"

Where you can put whatever other extension you are looking for instead of +(mp4|avi|mkv), like this:

  • just mp4: +mp4
  • some other formats: +(m4v|mov)
  • thanks and yes I know to change the type. but the problem is when you looking for that on the search. you will see most ( or all ) of the result are mp3 Jul 15, 2014 at 8:32
  • @lion, try the first option then, like this: what_you_are_searching_for filetype:mp4
