regenerate excludeList (after accidental removal)

Post by grsjst »

Hello,

I accidentally deleted my .exclude file (that was rather large). Is there a way to regenerate it without filebot reprocesses all files?

I was thinking of something like this (found on the web):

Code: Select all

find /volume1/video/ -type f | grep -E "\.webm$|\.flv$|\.vob$|\.ogg$|\.ogv$|\.drc$|\.gifv$|\.mng$|\.avi$|\.mov$|\.qt$|\.wmv$|\.yuv$|\.rm$|\.rmvb$|/.asf$|\.amv$|\.mp4$|\.m4v$|\.mp*$|\.m?v$|\.svi$|\.3gp$|\.flv$|\.f4v$|\.srt$" > .excludes
 
Would this work?

thanks,
Joost

Pretty much. It's just a list of file paths. Even just find /volume1/video/ > .excludes should do.


:idea: Here's how filebot itself can do the job:

Code: Select all

filebot -find /volume1/video/ --file-filter "f.video || f.subtitles" > excludes.txt
