cant get rss downloader to match and download
« on: August 30, 2015, 02:07:24 pm »
hi!

ive set-up the rss-channel and then activated rss-downloads and added rules. but nothing is matching or downloading. but the rss-feed is working as i can see it updating and listing new items in the list beside the rss-channel

for example:

ive added "whatever" as a download rule.
regexp is unchecked. (tried it with checked as well)
must contain is set to whatever* (also tried without the * and with it at the beginning of the text)
must not contain is empty
episodefilter is set to the next episode that is going to be released (in this case lets say its 1x2-)
ive checked "save to another folder" and chosen a folder where to download it.
ignore latest matches for is set to 0 days
add as paused is set to use default settings
and i checked the box next to the rss feed in use rules on webchannel.

what am i doing wrong?

im using qbittorrent v3.2.3 on mac os x yosemite 10.10.3

does "whatever" appear as text in the feed data?

are the items identified as NxNN?

yes, sorry for my bad english but that was what i tried to explain with this:
"but the rss-feed is working as i can see it updating and listing new items in the list beside the rss-channel"

so yes, it appears in the feed data and they are identified with the season and episode numbers as NxNN.
or well, they appear as all tv-shows standard release names have. for example: S01E02

S01E02

Then your episode match filter needs to have a capital 'E' rather than a lowercase 'x' or use a regular expression  of

Code: [Select]
[Ss]?[0-9]{1,2}[XxEe][0-9]{1,3}
Explain: regexp;

starting with an optional S or s.
followed by 1 or 2 numerals,
followed by a capital or lowercase 'e' or 'x',
followed 1 to 3 numerals.

i cant write letters in the episode filter-box, only numbers. and i dont see the point in writing episodes in "must contain" when the software has a "episode filter" box to fill in that kind of info.

Provided that it works on the feed that you are applying it to of course.

nevermind, i got back to using utorrent instead.
the rss function in qbittorrent might be the worst ive ever seen.
never touching it again, atleast not until someone makes it better.

but thanks for atleast trying.
