    How are you downloading? Torrents, Usenet, file hosters?

    I use xbmc on my xbox to play stuff inside rars, which saves me a lot of space and i can keep seeding the files. I havent tested the following programs given that i use xbmc but from what i hear you tell it to look in say d:\movies and it finds and extracts anything that goes in that folder. maybe worth a peeK?

    usenet -> http://www.milow.net/public/projects...r/parnrar.html
    also, you can use a windows batch script or a linux shell script as a general solution

    You're seeding RARs? The site you're downloading from has a retarded policy.

    There are several arguments both in favor and against of RARs. Personally I prefer uncompressed files as I don't have to bother with unpacking, though.

    But we're talking about BT here. The only 2 legit pros for RAR are older filesystem compatibility and ftp uploading. Here are my notes on the other "for" arguments
    Archive compression - compressing compressed files has no real impact, it's like header compression on MKV. It also won't playback for those who use RAR playback (e.g. XBMC). And to top it off, scene rules dictate the use of "storage" archiving, which means compressed archives are nuked.
    Disk fragmentation - this is not 1998, and fragmentation of a video file is not making any impact. We mostly worry about OS drive
    Portability - Self fulfilling prophecy
    File hosting - The connection they're making to BT doesn't work, it seems like there is a complete lack of understanding how BT works. Poorly seeded torrents don't just give you one RAR so that you can http the other, therefore all parts will be incomplete...
    PAR - Again, this is BT, file checking is a built in component. Force re-check takes care of this if there is any suspicion.

    RARs make sense for Usenet (many smaller and optimally sized parts), HTTP hosting (few larger sized parts), and that's it. FTPing to seedbox is a one time process, so that's not really selling it to me either. BT by it's nature handles these files in parts, there's no strong case for doing parts of parts.

    There's enough trackers offering Rarred and Unrarred content.
    If you can't live with the Rarred/Unrarred content than move on to another tracker that suits your needs.

    And stop fucking up somebody elses thread and try to answer his question, instead of randomly venting opinions.
    Can you feel the LOVE

    Firstly, I'm not having issues with any sites, I wouldn't stay a member at RAR splitting BT site. Nothing to move on from.
    Secondly, I'm "venting" the very nature of this thread, and providing informative feedback. Education about these things needs to be spread. You're making an issue out of nothing
