Add ZIP to comic formats to be scanned

Tom Davies 4 years ago updated by Tom 4 years ago 4

I have a huge collection of comics that are in .zip files rather than .cbr or .cbz. It would be great if Ubooquity would scan and show zip files as well as the other formats. Even if it were an advanced option that had to be turned on, that would be awesome.


Thanks for your consideration!

Hello,

the restriction to CBZ and CBR files is by design: the extension of the file carries a meaning which tells what kind of data we can expect to find inside. CBZ/CBR files are supposed to contain images and sometimes metadata files, so Ubooquity knows what to do with them. Zip and rar files can contain anything, so it's better for Ubooquity to ignore them as more often than not they will not be comics.

Also, cbz files are zip files. Why not just rename your zipped comics from .zip to .cbz?

Can you make this feature as a checkbox instead of declining it?

No, sorry.

From a technical point of view it doesn't make sense to use an extension for another.
