+1, especially for those split video files (avi.001, avi.002) where AB currently deletes the par set without running it or re-combining the video file first!

In the mean time I'm using AutoUnpack (http://www.see-and-be.com/AutoUnpack/index.php) A great auto unrar utility.
Thanks, using it for now.

Just to add, SABNZBD uses par2.exe (just like Alt.Binz) and it already joins these split files automatically.  So Alt.Binz wouldn't need more components, just an extra couple of lines of code/switches for the existing par2.exe.

I spoke with the SABNZBD devs about it tonight and they said it's easy to implement, par2.exe just needs directly telling which files to join as it doesn't actually search the download folder for files (unlike QuickPar for example).  So you'd need to add to the code/switches:

Code: [Select]
par2 r -options PARFILE file.001 file.002 file.003 file.004 file.005 etc.
I'm no programmer, but I thought this was worth bringing up :)  It'd be nice to see joining added to my favourite app :D

In whicn case, why not just:

copy /b “movie.avi.001” “movie.avi”
copy /b “movie.avi” + “movie.avi.002”
copy /b “movie.avi” + “movie.avi.003"
etc.

etc.


Because like most others in the thread, I don't want to have to do that every time I download split files (often daily) :)  Not when there are apps that can do it auto-magically.  Even running quickpar outside of Alt.Binz is quicker than doing it that way.  The code I quoted is the string that would need adding to Alt.Binz's own code, not to be run by the user for joining files each time (just in case you misunderstood me).  Anyway, it'd be nice to see someday.  In the meantime I just download splits using a different app.

What I meant was: since par2.exe doesn't apparently do anything beyond the copy /b code, Alt.Binz could just implement that instead, since it already has to create and pass the file list to par2.exe - but with more control of the process.

The trick is with creating the file list, of course.  This is why AutoUnpack needs a 'fuzzy joining' method.

Ahh... My apologies, I misconstrued you :D

True, however, Altbinz already has to "deal" with par2.exe in order to verify that the download is complete, so it probably doesn't matter too much either way whether it does the join itself or hands off the work to par2.exe as long as it verifies the files are complete first.

I'd also like to request automatic joining of files that aren't part of a split compressed archive.
I'm even happy to offer some of my own source code to help  ;D ...
see http://angusj.com/splitjoin/

HTH & thanks for a very useful application.
