Subject: filtering out files with names ending "-lq"

I have a question that is probably very simple to answer and yet I failed to
succeed with all my tries:

From a website hosting media files, of all videos I want to download only
those with file names that do NOT end "-lq.wmv".
(Particularly the files I want are named like "vid-00001.wmv" the ones I don't
want like "vid-00001-lq.wmv")

Among other tries I had these filters:
+*.mov +*.mpg +*.mpeg +*.avi +*.asf +*.mp3 +*.mp2 +*.rm +*.wav +*.vob +*.qt
+*.vid +*.ac3 +*.wma +*.wmv 

or, as last line

The log line reads:
(winhttrack -q{...} -F "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US;
rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826" -%F  -P -%l
"en, en, *"
-O1 "D:\Data\mirror\_\tc\Site\trout" +*.png +*.gif +*.jpg +*.css +*.js* -mime:application/foobar +*.mov +*.mpg +*.mpeg +*.avi
+*.asf +*.mp3 +*.mp2 +*.rm +*.wav +*.vob +*.qt +*.vid +*.ac3 +*.wma +*.wmv
-*-lq.wmv )

(I deleted the part after -q as I don't know what it contains and I replaced
the passwords with random characters)

I bet that I am very clumsy here, but I have absolutely no idea what I am
doing wrong. Also, I've read many pages of the forum here, but did not find a
similar topic. As the search always returns me zero hits, no matter what I
search for, please forgive me if I missed the thread in case the topic already
came up.

BTW: The -lq files are lower resolution versions of the video files without
-lq. I want to skip them to reduce server load.

Thank you in advance for opening my eyes!
