Download with SpotNet

When the Spots are loaded. Then we first go to Beeld. And then to Kolommen. Select Datum, (date) Omvang (size) and possibly the Tag. This is very useful. Because you can often see from the date (datum) how long something has been on SpotNet. And then you know if you have enough retention to download it through your news server. However, this is not always the case. Because it can be. That whoever spots it on SpotNet. That its is not the uploader.

The size is also very handy, so you can immediately see whether the format is correct and it says something about the quality of, for example, a movie.

Option 1

Open your web browser. And go to

SpotNet must be open. Otherwise the page cannot be found.

Option 2

In SpotNet, go to Editthen choose Sabnzbd. And then open Sabnzbd.

Option 2 has some limitations. I therefore recommend that you use option 1.

Option 2 Download Nzb SpotNet with external download program

You can choose to download an NZB file with SpotNet. And then we will open this NZB file with a download program. Some well-known download programs for the newsgroups are Grabit, NZBget, Newsleecher or SABnzbd. Personally, I’m not a big fan of using SpotNet’s built-in download client. Because SpotNet sometimes crashes. And often has an outdated download client. And that can mean that it doesn’t always go well with the unpacking.

Fortunately, we can adjust this. You do this by going to Bewerken .(edit) And then choose Downloadknop (downloadbuttun). And then check NZB opslaan (Save NZB).
