The script is written by Andrew Lord as a part of his oversight
project. The unpack scripts
can be used independently from oversight. There is an (outdated) discussion thread on NMT forum
. The project seems to be not developed anymore.
The reason the script is not shown in script list in nzbget is because it lacks the nzbget pp-script signature, which is required since v11. Adding this signature should make the script selectable and startable in nzbget. See Post-processing scripts
The script however has checks for nzbget options which no longer exist (LoadPars, etc.) meaning at least this part of script must be updated.
More important is that the script most likely doesn't handle obfuscated rar-files efficiently. Just only because of this reason I would recommend to use nzbget's own unpack and par-check functions. Disabling the unpack/par part of the script requires a deeper understanding of how it works and might be a difficult task.
I recommend to not try to update the script but instead use nzbget's new features (unpack, etc.) and new pp-scripts to accomplish the job, the script has done in older nzbget version.
To sort downloads nzbget has a VideoSort pp-script
. However it handles movies and series only (not music or software).
The new/recent feature sounds interesting and could be added to VideoSort (again, for video files only).
I wonder how the script handles the copies: does it really make file copies or uses symlinks/hardlinks, do you know that?
