Filenames Filters

I'm probably doing it wrong but I can't seem to download only files which contain certain keywords. I've been using OE for years but I could never correctly download only files which have a particular character string in them.

example:

http://www.website.com/members/videos/filename/filename_large.mp4
http://www.website.com/members/videos/filename/filename_high.mp4
where, "filename" is the exact same word for both of the above examples.

for URL Filters, i tried different settings for the Servers, Directories, Filenames.....not at the same time however!

where,
exclude keyword = high
or
include keyword = large

I only want to download the filenames which have the word large in them which is the higher quality video.

Thanks.

Yes, large in the URL Filters - Filename - Included list should do this. Please also use File Filters - Video - Location box - select "Load using URL Filters". File Filters - Text & Other categories - "Load from the starting server".

Ok Thanks. I just allowed OE to run through the night to grab both "large" and "high" and i'll just delete the lower quality vids. I will still give your suggestions a try too. Under File Filters, I did have only Video checked and only .mp4 checked. But I didn't have "Download only from the starting server" checked. I had "Download from any website" checked. regards.

The key thing here is that if you select anything other than "Load using URL Filters" in the Location box of some category - then this category would ignore Included/Excluded lists and keywords.

So, select "LOad using URL Filters" for File Filters - Video and then have the "large" or "high" keywords work.
