Let’s face it – almost all of you pirates download movies, games and other scene/p2p releases from the internet. In doing so, you may have noticed that most of these scene and p2p releases are archived as multi part RAR files with extensions such as r01, r02, .001, .002 etc. You can of course use WinRAR to extract any one of these files which will extract the entire archive, automatically decompressing all other associated files. However there are a lot of options that WinRAR does not offer in this scenario. This is where AutoUnpack comes in – a tool designed specifically for unpacking multi part RAR, 7z, zip and TS archives.

autounpack

For example, you can instruct Autounpack to monitor your torrent (or usenet) downloads folder. Immediately after a torrent download is finished, the software will extract the downloaded release to a destination folder of your choice. You can also instruct Autounpack to delete the archive files (an option is there to prevent deletion of .NFO files) once extraction is complete. This however is a big no-no if you use private torrent trackers - torrent client would not be able to seed the downloaded files and you will be hunted down for hit and running by tracker staff :)

AutoUnpack can also be used to batch decompress a large number of multi part archives. Say you have 20 movies downloaded all waiting to be unpacked – doing so individually would be a real pain in the @ss. Move all subfolders with movie archives under a single parent folder and give the parent folder location to Autounpack (as the source). The software will unpack each and every multi part rar archive under the parent folder, including those inside subfolders.

In addition to extraction, AutoUnpack is capable of repairing damage archives. Although this software will not magically recover catastrophically damaged files, it’s always a useful option to have. For a complete list of features of AutoUnpack, see the developer website.

Download

AutoUnpack is a free software. It’s less than 10MB in file size so downloading should no be a problem even if you have a low bandwidth connection.

    I recommend that no one signup to that site (without a throwaway email and with a proxy at least), they may track your email or something.

    For videos I download, I use the VLC UnRAR plugin. http://www.shapeshifter.se/code/vlc-unrar/

    I can seed and watch the movie at the same time.

    @Mister,
    Have seen it being mentioned on several file sharing forums but quite honestly we don't know for sure if it's fake or not. Will update if we find anything new.

    @me,
    Thanks for the info.

    Hey guys.

    I just signed up for jungle-pirates with an old email. It worked, but the site is new and full of torrents with 1 seed. The site's design is really bad, so it could be fake, I dunno. Haven't downloaded any torrents yet, mostly because there's nothing good with multiple seeds at the moment.

    Sounds so complicated. I would rather use Aunsoft Video Converter with my conversion work. I use it to convert MTS/M2TS files to MKV, MP4 e.g. And it also supports many other popular formats such as MXF, MOV, AVI and so on. Very useful to me!
