Is there a possibility to add e.g. a specially named file to a directory so that said directory is not scanned for content to add to the (video) library? Kind of what happens with robots.txt on web servers.

TIA

Have you tried right-click on a source ==> edit source ==> exclude path from library updates?

ASUS Motherboard M5A78L-M/USB3 // 8 GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce GT 430 graphics card // 2 GB RAM
Ubuntu upgraded to 12.04 LTS
XBMC v.11 Eden

See also http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Advancedsett...isting.3E, though it's easier to put everything you don't want scanned in a separate source and don't set content on it.

Thanks, the <exclude*fromscan> options with their regexp are flexible enough for me.
Some of my sources are NFS shares that contain also other stuff what I don't want to see listed by XBMC, so I'd like to have a rule written somewhere to block XBMC, without use the 'edit-source -> exclude' function at every exception.
