Feature request: exclude file extensions filter

Post by almeewar » Mon Aug 23, 2010 11:37 am

The possibility to exclude some file extensions can be useful in case of downloading ".torrent" files for example.
As ".torrent" file extension is added to exclusion list it will be opened by Firefox where it has an association with a torrent client.

Also it might be useful to add .pdf files to exclusion list to view them directly in pdf viewer instead of downloading and opening them manually.

What does your FlashGot Options | Downloads, currently show?

In the "FlashGot Options | Downloads" settings I can set the file extensions which should be downloaded by FlashGot (like "include" filter).
But I'm talking about the feature that allows us to download ALL files with FlashGot except the excluded ones.

Hello,

This old feature request should really be considered because Flashgot (MediaSnnifer.js) can create conflicts with other extensions that would prefer to use for a specific file type.
Can you guys add it?

Best regards.
