Hello
This is probably very basic, but i'm stuck... i need to rename multiple videos in a directory, but i need to filter out all files with .vob extension (they should keep original name). How shall i do it?

Drag the folder into the list then in the dialogue that appears...

Select "Add the files in the folders"
Regular expression mask: "\.vob$"
Select "Not matching"

That didn't work, all files were added anyway... probably i've done something wrong. OK, now what if i now want to unmark all files with .vob extension in the batch, how do i do that?

It works perfectly for me!
You weren't including my quotes in the RegEx, were you?

Add: Directories
Regular expression match: \.vob$
Select: Not matching

All filenames in the directory that do not end with .vob will be loaded into the list.

If you leave the "Not matching" box unselected then ONLY .vob files will be loaded.
