Does it ignore things is open brackets like [ ] and does it only look for movie files within the folders like .Mkv .ts .iso etc?
I am not sure if I understand your example.
Scraper has complex algorithm to recognize the movie. It check few elements, also for example header tags in MKV movies. I do not know all the details. I need to check if nfo files are also checked. File name has high priority for sure.
If you have any jpg posters etc in the movie folder, it is ignored for sure (I also have it from Mede8er and PopcornHour scrapers). When you open manual search you will see file name(s) used to search DB build base on movie file and also movie folder.
I do not know what they do with text in brackets. I have some movies with file parameters in breackets, and it is indexed well. And yes, it scans movie files recognized by known file extensions (plus BDMV and Video_Ts for unpacked BD/DVD). The exception is when movie file is very small one. Like 1KB. I do not know what is the limit, but too small files are ignored. So if you have not real collection with empty files, just to test the scraper by file names only, you can have problems. But I am not sure if was it your question.
BTW. I have issues with movies with EXTRAS subfolder. I would like to treat content of Extras as additional materials for main movie, but it is indexed as independent files, and I have to correct it manually.
And one more interesting thing - Dune store some information about matching filenames with movies (when you use B/C/D to match), to improve matching quality. Their system remembers that for example file "Avatar (2009) [Extended 1080p DTS HD 5.1].mkv" was manually
matched to Avatar movie - extended version, and when next user will scan movie with same file name, the scraper will use that information. Of course it is bit more complex (because it bases on statistics), but it is very smart thing, and it improves matching quality (and will improve it even much more in the future).
