Age filtering when scanning files should use creation date

See original GitHub issue

Currently they are filtered by modified date here, but doesn’t creation date make more sense?

If you put/copy new files into the scanned folder they should be treated as new. The modified date will never change unless you re-encode, and that would probably also change the hash and break subtitle detection.

The creation date is platform dependent but I found this stackoverflow answer with cross-platform code.

edit: Probably better to use creation and modified dates and pick the latest? So just max(os.path.getmtime(path), os.path.getctime(path))

A workaround would be to extract and touch the files

MoshiMoshi0commented, Feb 27, 2019

The modified date will only change if change the file contents.

Exactly, so if you copy a file that you encoded a long time ago subliminal will not pick it up because only the creation time will change.

And as soon you get the file, it will have the current time as modified date (unless you fake it)

That does not seem to be the case when for example extracting using 7z or winrar. The files have their original modified date and a current creation date.
