More Details

Sabnzbd is a newsreader program that has a web-based user interface and downloads binaries. It has been written in Python and takes a little bit of getting used to, but do not let that discourage you. This is a newsreader program only. It is not a Usenet access provider or a nzb search function, so you will need to have alternatives for those. Before we go into the functions of Sabnzbd, we will do a brief summary for those who are a little unfamiliar with the Usenet.

Usenet is much underused and many people get a little nervous around it and through lack of information they miss out on an amazing information tool. The Usenet has been around for years, and actually appeared about ten years before the internet! Usenet allows people to share information and files through a network of serves forming the net. The information, or news, is passed through all the servers and not stored in one singular location. You can access the Usenet through a premium provider. They are really the best option as your ISP will only have limited access, if any at all. You will still need an ISP in order to access the Usenet. Once you have access to the Usenet, you can use a special search engine to find the topics groups that you like.

A newsreader is a software program that will read all the articles on the Usenet and present them to the user. So the question is what does Sabnzbd offers to its users? Well, one huge plus point is that this program is completely free! You can download and install the program at no cost what so ever. Once you have the program installed, it will pick up the nzb files that you want and put them into a special folder. It has a par2 repair and unpack facility. You will receive an email when your allocated job is completed. It is compatible with most sites and software, and can pick up and process rss feeds.

Another HUGE advantage of this program is its compatibility with Mac and Linux. It works with both of these operating systems. It can be difficult for Mac and Linux users to find software that works with their chosen platform, but Sabnzbd works without a problem. The one downside to this program is that it can be a bit tricky to install and set up. This is no doubt due to it being free, so that they have never had the time or inclination to develop a novice level installation version. If you can get some help with the installation, you will find this an extremely valuable addition to your software collection, as it’s free you cannot really go wrong!

    I love sabnzbd! I found a very convenient way to push something in the download queue from wherever I am (as long as I have internet;-)):
    I use to manage RSS feeds that my sabnzbd at home subscribes to. First you have to add one of those RSS feeds to Feederator. Once you created a new feed you will automatically get a new address for that feed (something like “” in my case), but you decide which download posts make it to that outgoing feed. With one click on “publish” the download appears this outgoing feed. As soon sabnzbd starts reading this feed for the next time it will start downloading…
    By the way: you need a valid Google Account to log into Feederator, since it Authenticates with Google credentials…

    1) sabnzbd is one of the only usenet client that will run on a nas. The nas will download and unpack the archives for you.
    2) Compatible mobile apps. Mynzb on iphone is great: You can search on your phone and seamlessly send the command to your computer/nas to download the nzb.
    3) integration with nzbmatrix and Newzbin. Downloads can then be renamed, sorted in categories… From the information on the website.
    4) other integrations: xbmc, Sickbeard…
