Veranderingen voor v18.1 - v19.0

  • unpack during downloading (#371):
  • downloaded files can now be unpacked as soon as every archive part is downloaded;
  • new option "DirectUnpack" to activate direct unpacking;
  • direct unpack works even with obfuscated downloads; option "DirectRename" (see below) must be active for that;
  • option "ReorderFiles" (see below) should be also active for optimal file download order;
  • direct unpack works for rar-archives; 7-zip archives and simply splitted files are processed by default unpack module;

  • direct unpack reduces the time needed to complete download and post-processing;
  • it also allows to start watching of video files during download (requires compatible video player software);
  • see forum topic Unpack during downloading for more info;
  • renaming of obfuscated file names during downloading (#360):
  • correct file names for obfuscated downloads are now determined during download stage (instead of post-processing stage);
