[Feature Request] Unpack ZIP files

Post by d0zer » 09 Aug 2018, 11:59

¡Hola

First: thanks for this great tool! Simply awesome.

I was wondering why somthing is not working. A quick look in the source code gives the answer. Its not implemented: unpacking ZIP files.

7zip is already used so it should be a small change to just extend this to ZIP files. I know they are rare in the Usenet atm .. but there will be way more soon in the near future :ugeek: .

Btw: SabNZBd and Synology Download Station are able to unpack encrypted ZIP files. :oops:

Thanks a lot,
d.

Since no one uses zip format when posting to Usenet there is no point in supporting it. The rare zipped posts contain exes with viruses.

Yes, that's true for now. But technology evolves and in the near future will be a need for unpacking ZIP files. I think a post processing script will do the job also, until its so obvious that this functionality will be included in NZBGet.

I doubt it will happen because rar and 7z are superior to zip. There is no reason for uploaders to use zip.

Should this happen nonetheless the support for zip can be added but not until then.

I sent you a PM with some details. Hope that explains it a bit more.
