    It works in WP 3.8.

    But as 3.8 changed all the admin fonts, you have to resize the windows when working with files because the formatting is all messed up.

    The plugin author doesnt really support this plugin anymore and threads here never get answers or help.

    I wish I never installed it. No support, buggy, no ability to export, doesnt work well with large files, etc..........

    So if you find a better plugin let me know. :)

    Thx a lot... tweakben,
    for me i have to resize the windows since May 2013, when trying to make a sync, because the bottom was never visible...
    I don't know what is going wrong with the author. It is the best plugin for this i have ever seen. Don't know a better one.
    My other problem is that I don't have any thumbnails, i'm working with large mp3s...
    But ok, i'm trying to make the update of wp, without breaking my site :-)

    I'm working with movies that are 500Mb to 3GB in size. THOSE are large files! mp3's should be fine, although, with this plugin, who knows....

    Might I suggest if you add a .htaccess handler to force download for MP3's on your server, you can just direct link to the files and the file will automatically download too?

    Hi Ben,
    ok, your files are large...
    i hope the downloads are just working fine for my users...
    But without their own thumbnails on the details-sites. This doesn't really matters, because they are inside of the files... but this is not what the plugin features normally... The Plugin don't work very good, and works very bad!!! with remote-sync.

    I found it best to upload to a directory called, as an example, yoursite.com/downloads/x.mp3

    ...and then remote link from wp-filebase. When it copies files to its own directory structure things get messy fast. And some fail, so you get incomplete files and all that nasty stuff. Better to just link to your own dedicated working directory!
