What is the Packagizer?

The packagizer is a feature which lets you modify parameters of given links & packages based on already given parameters.
It is most commonly used to modify filenames (e.g. remove parts of them) based on existing filenames or packagenames.
Many users are also using it to auto-set their download directory based on given filename & type.

Note: Packagizer rules will only affect new added links! Nothing will change for existing links in downloadlist and LinkGrabber!



Simple example: Modify filename

The following rule will append "JDAwesome_" to all files from source "" which are online.

URL used in this example:
Final filename of this example will be:" instead of "".
You can test your Packagizer rules by utilizing the "Test" functionality on the bottom of your rule where a blue "play button" is located.

Please note that in order to to more complex filename/package name modifications, some knowledge about regular expressions is required.
There also exists a useful online tool for testing regular expressions:

Import / Export Packagizer rules

On the bottom right corner, you will find two buttoms to import/export packagizer rules.
You can also export individual rules by selecting them --> Rightclick --> Export

Packagizer via myjd / headless mode

Myjd doesn't have any GUI for packagizer settings.
You can however, use a normale JD with GUI, add your packagizer settings and then simply copy them voa advanced settings to your headless JD.
See Settings --> Advanced Settings --> Search for PackagizerSettings
Packagizer rules will be exported as .packagizer files.
