If you want them to always be hidden globally, you should check out Ghost Filter. (but still toggleable on/off)

Or do you mean just from one particular set of Branch View results?

I managed to exclude some filetypes, but how can I exclude a path via the ghost filter option?

But I would also be interested in how to exclude a certain folder(s) from a branch view

d: "<a folder name without any path or a complete path>"
But I would also be interested in how to exclude a certain folder(s) from a branch view
Excluding the folder would not automatically exclude it's files, so the easiest way would be a script like:
ghost("d: battle.net|f: *\battle.net\*", -1);
Which would hide folders with that name and all files in it...

Or maybe a better way to manage ghost filters for branch views:

One way for temporary times is that you can add the following to the end of the addressbar, /excl=.videothumbnails

I would be more interested how to exclude certain folders permanently from a branched view, if that is possible.

That is what the ghost filter I suggested in my first reply does, then you asked a subsequent question, if you mean you still can't work it out, then I'd suggest you look up Ghost Filter in the help file, it would help you achieve what you want.
