I've had a look and I think everything should be working ok with the version I last uploaded.

If you need to search for a .mov (or any other extension etc...) use:
ext:"mov"

I'm wondering if ampersand characters are not particularly happy characters - I'll test!

Ok - so I put a file called "M&M" on my filesystem and did a search through QSirch on the Web Console and it shows the exact same results as QsirchMac.app. It would do as it's the same API it's querying. I have found something completely maddening in that filenames that include an ampersand must have more than one character before the ampersand and more than one different character after the ampersand, So...

M&M no results
M&SM no results
MM&MM no results
MM&SM result

I've no idea why, gotta take that one up with QNAP. They'll probably suggest buying the QSirch Premium or some bilge.

On a different note if anyone has a link to all the different filters you can apply to the query bar I'll try and add some filter building functionality to QsirchMac.app.
