same video, different quality

Hello,

What's the best way not to download a video that already has been downloaded with a different quality? Also, videos in different qualities are not always available, so if a higher quality video is not available I need to download the lower quality video. So I'd only like to get the highest quality video that is available.
Filenames are mostly the same, except they end with LQ, HQ, HDV etc.
I was thinking about URL substitution, but I'm not sure how to do this.

Thanks!

I need to look at the site example to have an idea on that. Can you give me more details?

Thank you!

Hi Oleg, thanks for replying!

For example www.hd-trailers.net.
2 resolutions are available, 480p and 720p:
http://videos.hd-trailers.net/Jess-Moss-Trailer-480p-HDTN.mp4
http://videos.hd-trailers.net/Jess-Moss-Trailer-720p-HDTN.mp4

I want to download the 720p version, but if that doesn't exist I'd like the 480p version.

Thanks again!

I am thinking about this, but sorry - so far no ideas at all how to do such filtering.

OK, no problem.
Hopefully you can somehow implement this into OEP, it saves time, bandwidht and manual sorting.

Thnx!

Yes, I understand. Just have no good ideas right now at all.
