Par Rename

Post by sbeek » 30 Jun 2013, 17:14

Hello,

More and more articles get posted with some random numbers to prevent takedowns.
Now once you downloaded these files, usually another PAR file is within the extracted RAR file to rename the files to the original name.

I have been looking to get this automatically done. Has anyone successfully made something ( I suppose in the PP script) to execute this PAR by command like to fix these names?

I was thinking about doing a scan in the download folder after the PP script to find another PAR file, and then execute this with Repair options by command line.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for nzb. Do you have any others with smaller size?
I can test with this one but it is not convenient. If you have other nzbs it would help.

If this kind of obfuscating becomes a new trend I could add a built-in support in NZBGet. But I need to see that this is not a rare case.

Hi Hugbug,

Not all posters use this technique, but they are doing it more often.
I provided you with another nzb which uses this.

If you need some more I will try to find them
