Postprocessing Script for Anime

This script will hash your downloaded Anime from SABnzbd+ or NZBGet and sync it with your account. The file will be renamed and moved to your specified target-directory.


To use the script, extract the zip into your sabnzbd script folder and select as your post processing script in your anime category.


First, rename anime.cfg.default to anime.cfg

You have to enter your anidb username and password into the config file. Also you have to modify the target directory in the config file to tell the script, where your anime folder is. (the script will copy the files to a directory with the name of the anime in that folder.)
