Zip Filetype Plugin?

My brother gets these Daisy ebooks that come in a password protected zip file. I wrote a plugin that uses 7zip and converts the contents and returns an html file. It works fine if I rename the zip file to something else and add to file_types. Otherwise it adds the password protected zip to the library instead. I'm assuming this is because calibre's built in zip support is conflicting in some way.

I realize it's seems pretty simple to just rename the files, but my brother is computer illiterate, and I'm tired of having to go to his house every time he downloads a new book.

Is there any way to make this work?

Give your plugin the same name as the calibre archive plugin and a higher priority, then it will override the builtin plugin.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have:

Code:
name='Archive Extract'
priority=100000
It still has the same behavior as before.

So disable the builtin one and give your a different name

That did the trick. Thanks for the quick support, I just made a small donation.
