The last rar is needed completly, just a dummy is not enough. for the rars between (r02,r03) you have to create dummys.
i'm looking to create an api for newznab(serverside) for listing series by name.(A..Z)
but then i need to change your plugin to show that.
is there any svn checkout for your code?..so i can merge your updates with my tweaks?
Great! I'm sorry for my short answers but I have been using tapatalk on my phone and it really sucks writing on a touch screen...
Yes, xbmc need the file beginning and end for mkv/mp4. In some cases there is also a sample inside the rars, then I download the first, second and last since the second usually contains the end of the sample and the beginning of "the real deal". In the case of multi archives (cd1/cd2) I grab the first of each cd and check what files are inside and then create a playlist with the relevant files.
Anyhow, for newznab you can just fork my git repo
. Current version of my newznab addon is in the eden branch. Once you are done, just do a pull request and I'll include your code (if it looks good ;D ). Will you merge your api to the current newznab branch or will it be just a personal fork? If so, will you share it? Also, a setting in the newznab addon for enabling the feature could be a good idea...
