Choose Install Method

We recommended to installing Unpackerr the same way you installed your Starr or download apps. If your existing infrastructure exists in Docker, then Unpackerr should probably live in Docker too.

If you're using the Folder Watch feature, then we recommend installing Unpackerr native (not Docker) on the server where the files-to-be-extracted reside. Read more about that on the Docker page.

Instructions Available


Unpackerr uses a lot CPU while extracting, and tends not to work well when running on smaller systems like Synology NAS devices. Running Unpackerr on a system with a large CPU is ideal to avoid system performance degradation. The application uses only a few CPU cycles at idle to poll Starr apps and/or watch folders.
