Ah, the same Binhex from unRAID forums who makes all the great dockers (thanks for them!)

Would it be possible to have a dry run functionality? I'd like to know what it plans to do as I can foresee some things I'd like to catch/check on.

eg. ISTR Avatar MKVs have some Naveen subs and LOTR have some Elvish - they would get stripped?

Say some automated tool downloaded a German rip for me instead of English - Videoslimmer would leave it untouched if it ONLY has German and I would never know until I come to play it but with a dry run I might spot that from some output?

Sure, i could add in a dry run option.

They would only be stripped if the sub language would be 'Naveen' and 'Elvish' (and your prefered language existed too), which i doubt they would be, more likely they would be shown as the language they are subbed to, e.g. 'English', you can use a tool such as mmg.exe from the mkvtoolnix to take a look at one of your mkv's to check this.

I guess you could use VideoSlimmer to do this, but the output would be tricky to decipher (logs are fairly verbose), it's not really designed to help you identify movies that have been downloaded with the wrong language, more of a space saving tool, and for the OCD amongst us who dont like chaff in their movie collection :-).

p.s. yes i am the same binhex as frequents unraid, glad you're enjoying the docker images :-).

Stripping the unneeded content is a great idea. A friend wrote his own version but not as good! Just started (and aborted) a large dry run. Looks good and thank you for adding that requested function Wink

Is there (didnt get to end!) a way to stop it reporting warnings for each JPG, AVI etc file (the screen scrolls past very quick with all those warnings!)?
Does it also report total savings at the end of a run?

Also is there an easy way to add this to say SABnzbd downloading as a script so each downloaded movie gets auto processed? I see someone asked for that for NZBget over at your github but no response. Seems a great idea to me. Then all you need do is run the script on your whole library ONCE and clean as you download each movie
