[Identification] Add configurable keywords filter to exclude files from identification
I am also a Plex user that have many extra/bonus files that conform to Plex's naming convention. E.g., Teaser-trailer.mkv and The Making Of-featurette.mkv. I now have over 2,000 such files that failed identification in Zappiti. I am suggesting that Zappiti should add configurable keywords filter to exclude files with name that matched one of the keywords from being added to the identification process. Example of keywords (for my user case) are "trailer," "featurette," "deleted," and "behindthescenes." A file name matching pattern for exclusion will also work. E.g., *-trailer.mkv, *-featurette.mkv, etc.
In Settings - Identification, the Terms to exclude from titles is only for display purposes, not an exclusion, isn't it? And in Advanced Tasks the ignore option there is only for sorting.
Seems like they're 80% there and have the core features already, just need to implement it in another way which would be good.
You'd have my vote if I had any left :)

Thanks Mike. However, I also want to keep running Plex alongside Zappiti. Prefixing the file name with . also changes how the extra title is displayed in Plex.
You can add a . to the start of the title for exclusions. If you have something like Auto Renamer it should be pretty quick and painless.
