Download files are obfuscated or long series of characters

Post by mcbain35 » November 24th, 2019, 11:25 am

Hi There,
I am downloading files and when I look at the files to unzip or merge the parts, many of my downloads have parts that look like this;

`0bfc2f8be09d7a08080544b496ffac69` yEnc (001+261)
`0c3c4cd51cfabac316101be735122187` yEnc (001+261)
`0c8dfcdd413e4be6d5fc2b567c28b2be` yEnc (001+261)

and about 423 more just like this, if I use WinRar on one of the parts, I can see the filename of what I wanted to download and yet I am unable to unzip . unRar or merge all the parts due to the file names being this way.

Note that this doe snot happen on all downloads but it seems to be happening to about > 75% of them now.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Can you share the .NZB so that I can verify on my own SABnzbd?

Hmm, hard to find the nzb file but here is a link to one of them.

Let me know if you need the actual nzb file?

Thanks in advance.

Also, I right clicked on the file and saved it as-is, about 3Gb, and it is perfect and I can play it . Seems to me that if I can download the video directly, then the nzb should work... no?

We can't open that file because it's only for members. Can you share it some other way?

Searching on the name "Star Trek ...", I found two post, which I downloaded, and but were good: a .mkv extension, indeed with a random name, but no yEnc files. So all fine for me.
