Feature Request: Unpack RAR in RAR

Post by margash » 06 Jun 2014, 11:11

Hi everyone

Well for me NZBGet is actually the perfect software. If it wasn't for one small thing that really bugs me:
There is a german release-group who actually places rar-files within the inital rar-set.

I usually use a chrome addon to send nzbs to nzbget on my asustor NAS and with a little help of the videosort script the stuff usually ends up nicely in my XBMC without me having to do anything. But that doesn't work with these double rared files...
So my feature request is: Could you please enhance the unpack-routine to include a check if there are further rar-files to extract?

Oh and I link this request to a 10 or maybe 15€ bounty which I'll donate to the project :)

Cheers,
Stefan

This feature is in todo for v14.

Prinz2311 probably has a pp-script to unpack double packed archives.

Yes I'm using a unpack pp-script to unpack rar,zip,7z inside archives.

Linux only!!!

Thanks, I'll give it a try later (probably next week)

Many releases come with files in the format of

Code: Select all

xxx.rar           ----->  xxx.avi 
xxx.subs.rar      -----> /Subs/xxx.idx
                         /Subs/xxx.rar ----> xxx.sub
Archive within archive extraction is needed as both .idx and .sub files are needed to have working subtitles. (SABnzbd handles this properly)

Doesn't the pp-script from prinz2311 linked above solve the problem?

My script excludes subs on purpose because some PC-Player/Filter can play Subtitles in a rar file. And I personally delete the subtitles anyways.

Well, regardless this still doesn't solve the issue of people who want to completely extract the archives included in an NZB, and not have the extra archives deleted by post processing scripts. Subs or no subs, there could be useful files included in further archives for whatever reasons.

I'm guessing most people use VLC, and I don't think VLC plays subs located in .rars

Sorry to resurrect a very old thread, but did this ever get added to NZBget and I'm just missing it, or do we still need to use a script (and if so, does the linked one still work)?

I'm hoping the former as I'm not using PP scripts at the moment as they've always been a bit hit and miss in my experience and I'm getting this 'rar in rar' thing happening every so often, but it seems to be increasing in frequency.

Cheers.
