Unpack during downloading

Post by .maxx » July 6th, 2017, 9:38 am

I've read this on the NZBGet forum.
Would be nice to have this in SAB too.

Yes it would be cool, but while the core functionality is easy, there is a huge amount of caveats that also nzbget's creator didn't think of and now needs to fix.

Would love to implement it, but I will need more developer help.. :( it's just me...

Bump. Was just about to swing by and request this. Assuming it would be possible to do in a way that would shave off completion time it would rock. NZBGet sucks.

You are lucky, I just finished implementing it!

It's a bit tricky so want to test it myself (and others that run from source) a bit more before building a new Alpha release.
