Description of the issue

You can add audio mp3 files into an interactive container

Too bad, this was working in FM 11....

Pick a file, the file selector show Audio or Video types,
select Audio, select a folder with .MID midifiles or .KAR karaoke midifiles... it is not possible selecting Audio to add a .MID into the field...

Expected result

The midifile should be imported into the database and playable from there as it is the case with MP3 files...

Actual result

No midifile .MID can be imported/added into an interactive container...

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No message, the audio type filter in the selector does not allow to import .MID midifiles
