  1. Install python 2.7 (if not already installed).
  2. cd into the intended scripts directory and install via git.
  • git clone
Sym-Link Python binaries.

Since many systems now include python3 as default, these scripts call /usr/bin/env python2 You system should have python2 existing in the path as a sym-link to python2.7 binary. If not, you will need to create a sym-link to this.

  1. Find out where your python2.7 is which python2.7.
  2. Create a sym-link python2 in the path (probably the same directory as your python2.7 and python executables.)
  • ln -sf /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python2

depending on permissions for your system, you may need to use sudo followed by the admin password or su to login as admin super user.

  • sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python2

In Some cases (e.g. OSX Mavericks) you may have issues sym-linking etc. I have therefore created an OSX branch that I will keep up-to-date with Master. If you switch to OSX branch these scripts will call python2.7 from system path.

Install external tools.

use apt-get install, your package manager, or download the source and compile.

  1. unrar
  2. unzip
  3. tar
  4. 7zr (p7zip)
  5. ffmpeg

Ensure these are installed (or sym-linked) in the PATH as used in your downloader.

Windows from source.

  1. Install python2.7
  2. Install pywin
  3. Download source
  1. Download and install ffmpeg
  2. Add C:\Python27 to your path
  • windows/start
  • right-click computer (my Computer)
  • Advanced system settings
  • Environment Variables
  • in System variables, select Path, edit
  • at the end of "Variable value" files, add ;C:\Python27

Windows compiled executable binaries (.exe)

Due to the complexities of compiling these scripts, I am not able to compile current versions without investing a lot more time into this. Installing python and running these scripts is not too difficult and therefore I am recommending that people use the source version of these scripts.

Sorry for any inconvenience here. I am leaving the links below, but no further development of Windows Builds is anticipated.

Download from here nzbToMedia-v9.2

Download from here nzbToMedia-v9.3dev

Compiling for Windows from Source

Update manually using Git (OS/Linux)

These instructions will update nzbToMedia and will leave your autoProcessMedia.cfg as-is.

Ensure that you have made a backup of autoProcessMedia.cfg. Just in case an update of nzbToMedia might overwrite/break your config.

  1. Open Terminal
  2. cd into intended scripts directory (for instance: cd /volumes/shared/scripts/nzbToMedia)
  3. issue git pull. The update should finish in a few seconds.
