#3422 new plugin-request

Plugin: Auto-skimmer for 'Sample' and 'Screens' folders

Description

I find about 95% of the torrents I download follow the standardized format of having a folder within the torrent named 'Screens' or 'Sample', with either screenshots or a 30-second sample video.

For anything that has s01e01 in the title, it makes sense to only download that folder first, to see if it's worth downloading the full torrent.

It would be convenient if there was a plugin that would check for folders with those names, and if it finds one, then automatically set all the files in the torrent to "Do not download" priority, while keeping the 'Sample' or 'Screens' folder at "Normal" priority (rather than the user having to manually do those with almost every single torrent of a new series)

Maybe this should be directed at Radarr instead. Deluge is just a download client and doesn't usually parse download information.

Replying to jools772:

Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately that doesn't apply to this issue.

Radarr seems to be an RSS downloader, similar to flexget.

My issue isn't with downloading the .torrent files — flexget does that perfectly for me already.

The issue is once the .torrent file is on my filesystem, when Deluge pulls the .torrent file from the auto-add folder, it adds it with every file within the torrent set to "Normal" download priority. But for most of the .torrent files that get put in my auto-add folder, I want to start by only downloading the 'Sample' or 'Screens' folder to see if it's worth downloading the full video file.

This is something that would have to happen within Deluge, so a Deluge plug-in seems like the appropriate place for that to happen.

To make the plug-in more universal, it could just be a modification to the already present Filter plug-in, but make it so the user can set a filter to only auto-download files with the given terms and set all the other files within a .torrent's file list to "Don't download".
