Any way to exclude folders from the scan? I want to exclude video extras folders if possible.

Just add it to the blacklist in the settings

I've tried adding the folder name but it didn't work. Short of renaming all the extra files I can't figure it out but maybe I'm missing something? Can you elaborate on how to do that please?

Well can't really have a look right now. I think a screenshot of your config window might help.
It might as well be a bug in the addon.

Here's a screenshot of the MMS settings. Not sure if there's any special chars required to indicate that VideoExtras is a folder name though.

Well just had a look at the source code and the blacklist is only checking against filenames, not the directory names.

I can have a look later, but I don't know if this is maintained anymore and that might prevent us from pushing the changes to the official repo.

Yes exclusion of the VideoExtras folder would be a big help.

Actually I just did some more testing and it turns out it does in fact work. Turns out there was a typo in the videoextras folder name I was testing! Feeling a bit stupid that I missed that!!
For info the filename param in the code is actually the full file path not just the name.

Well, badly named variables ruined my day. Again.
