If i download a site which contains same files but different file type, for instant .mpg , .rm, .wmv, .avi, and i dont want to download load them all. I prefer downloading .avi, but if there is no .avi then i want to download .mpg, and so on. Is there a way i can do a file check:

if (there are files that have same name in the same directory)
then -> download the one with .avi extension
else -> download the one with .mpg extension.

I wonder if there is a way i can do this?

Thank you,
Tom Lock.

Well, there is no automatic way to do that. But I would suggest you the following - disable loading all Video files for the Project first (uncheck the File Filters | Video section in the Project Properties dialog). Select "Do not load existing files", click OK button and download the Project.

Now enable loading Video files again, start the Project download and press F9. Wait until all files get parsed and go to the Queue tab. You will see the list of all video files that Offline Explorer is going to download.

Now you can manually remove unwanted files. Then press F9 key again and continue loading all files that you kept in the queue.

I hope this helps.

Thank you very much. I am going to try that. By the way, is such function will be implemented in the next version of OE? Command line?

I am not sure. If you can develop programs, you can do this with Offline Explorer Enterprise, which can be controlled using OLE Automation.
