How do I block FileBot sending results to Google Analytics?

Post by beoba »

Was using WireShark to track down why the queries to TheMovieDB were so poor and I noticed these.

In this case I'm doing a lookup for "movies/Title.avi", and the crappy query went against "movies", resulting in a new name of "Movies, Aspirin and Vultures". Something noticeable below is how that result is included in the tracking.

GET /__utm.gif?utmwv=4.7.2&utmn=-1260060633&utmt=event&utme=5(TheMovieDB*SearchMovie*Movies%2c%20Aspirin%20and%20Vultures%202005)(1)&utmcs=UTF-8&utmsr=1680x1050&utmsc=-1&utmul=en-US&utmje=1&utmhid=-1534074767&utmac=UA-25379256-3&utmcc=__utma%3D999.276497141.1325450882.1325450882.1325476326.9%3B%2B__utmz%3D999.1325476326.1.1.utmcsr%3D(direct)%7Cutmccn%3D(direct)%7Cutmcmd%3D(none)%3B&gaq=1 HTTP/1.1

So how do I turn this off? Why isn't it mentioned anywhere?

Oh and here's another one presumably caused by clicking the Rename button:

GET /__utm.gif?utmwv=4.7.2&utmn=444172258&utmhn=filebot.sourceforge.net&utmcs=UTF-8&utmsr=1680x1050&utmsc=-1&utmul=en-US&utmje=1&utmdt=Rename&utmhid=-1746135866&utmp=net%2fsourceforge%2ffilebot%2fui%2frename%2fRenamePanel&utmac=UA-25379256-3&utmcc=__utma%3D999.276497141.1325450882.1325450882.1325477680.9%3B%2B__utmz%3D999.1325477680.1.1.utmcsr%3DOpenJDK%20Runtime%20Environment%201.6.0_23%7Cutmccn%3D(organic)%7Cutmcmd%3Dorganic%7Cutmctr%3Ddeb%3B&gaq=1 HTTP/1.1

Tracking is mentioned in the forums and on the website. Also in the cmdline help, which is how u can disable it. Just add "-no-analytics" as cmdline argument.

I do track the auto-selected TheMovieDB result (so only data that has just been recieved from TheMovieDB is tracked), so I can tweak movie name auto-detection. Already noticed the crappy query agains "Movies" and it is fixed in recent builds.

If you're interested in the movie-mode rewrite try r828 from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/filebot ... ebot/HEAD/

It's a vast improvement at least with the little testdata I've got.
