Basic Questions

What are Filters?


For more details on what Filters do in Videora, please consult the What is an Filter? FAQ Question.

Filter Options

The "Feed:" combo box allows you to select which feed you want to search through for your filter text. This can also be set to All which makes Videora search every feed you are subscribed to for your filter text.

The "Filter (#):" text boxes are the actual text you are looking for when searching through RSS feeds. The contents of this box can be in english or regular expressions. Videora features two filters for maximum matching capability. By default Videora will put a "." in Filter (2). If you do not plan on using Filter (2) leave the "." there as this tells Videora to ignore Filter (2).

The "Mode (#):" combo boxes allows you to tell Videora whether you want to download video if you get a Filter match ("Pass") or use reverse logic and download videos when you DON'T get a Filter Match ("Fail").

If the "Filter is a Regular Expression" box is not checked, Videora will automatically convert the text in the Filter (1 and 2) text boxes into a regular expression.

If the "Filter Searches Title" box is checked, Videora will search all RSS title tags for the filter text you specified.

If the "Filter Searches Link" box is checked, Videora will search all RSS link tags for the filter text you specified.

How-to: Add a new Custom Filter
