This addon is an extraction utility for RAR archives.

It allows direct reading of uncompressed RAR files, so prior unpacking is not necessary. For all other types, it is temporarily unpacked and passed to Kodi.

Attention: A "Solid RAR" archive type requires complete unpacking to use files within it. Hence access times may be long for larger packages.
