Some NZB's expand and others just show all files?

Postby depredador » Sun Mar 04, 2018 11:07 pm

I notice sometimes when you load an NZB it just has the subject name and how many files and pars there are. There's also a + in the subject field that you can click on and can then see all the rars and pars it contains. You then just have to right click on it and select download and you see a blue progress bar as it downloads. When it finishes you can watch the green bar progress as it unrars.

Other times I load an NZB and it has the subject name and a list of all rars and pars that show in the pane. To download those I have to select all and then chose download and when it finishes downloading all the files you don't get to see the green progress bar as it's unraring but Newsbin still assembles it anyway.

Is there any reason why some NZB's display differently as I find it easier when you don't have to select all the files and you get to see the progress bar as it's downloading and unraring?

Not sure if there's some setting in Newbin that causes this or if it's just the way some NZB's work.

The difference is in how the NZB's are made. If they're in a regular format they get compacted together. If they aren't then they don't.

Ran into some files the other day which were posted with bad file counters

Code: Select all
bla bla bla [04/10/]


and

Code: Select all
bla bla bla04/10/]


The formats were messed up so combining is difficult.

In 6.80 and newer, some NZB's are "force compacted" together if they're directly fed to the download list through Drag and Drop, Sonarr or NZB Autoload.

If you want me to look at some of these messed up NZB's you can rar up and email them to me at ts @ newsbin.com

Yeah, those NZB's are impossible to compact normally. You notice the files have no extensions.

If you drag and dropped them onto Newsbin, they'd show up in the download list compacted (6.80RC5 anyway). The same if you used NZB Autoload and/or if you set the NZB options to send the files directly to the download list instead of opening up a tab.

How do you drag and drop them?

I didn't know there was another way of loading NZB's into Newsbin.

There's a bunch of ways to load nzbs

1 - Double-click them on disk.
2 - Instead of "Download", "Open" them in the browser.
3 - You can set Newsbin to watch a folder for NZB's. When they get saved to this folder they get picked up and downloaded.
4 - Using your mouse, you can drag them into Newsbin.

If, when you double-click, they open a new window on top, in the NZB Options make sure "Download double-clicked NZB's is checked.

Using the drag and drop method can it be set so they download to a new folder like you can if you load them the normal way?

Also do you drag and drop the NZB into the downloading pane like Sonarr does?

1 - You ought to be able to D&D it into any part of Newsbin

2 - If you add $(NZBFILE) to the download and unrar path, the NZB Filename will be used to make a folder for the download automatically.
