Set up Radarr Windows with SABNzbd to download

In this Windows tutorial we are going to set up Radarr with the program SABnzbd. To automatically download movies from the newsgroups.

Configure Media management

We are going to set up Media management. We do this so that movie files are renamed to the correct names.

We’re going to the tablad Profiles.

I’m going to edit one.

Preferred Tags here you enter x264 . And possibly x265. If your device supports x265 files. Or divx and xvid if you still have an old device.


Here you can set the minimum size of certain files. I recommend that you set this up. This means you download less junk. Of course it also depends on your Newznab provider. But sometimes things can go wrong even if you have a good Newznab provider.

The above are my settings. If you download animation movies. Then you may have to set it a little less strict. Because animation films are always a bit smaller.


You have to set up an indexer so that Radarr knows where to download the desired nzb file from. The more you add, the more likely your movie will be found.

On the Indexerstab, go to the Indexers tab.

Add radarr indexer

Click Plus .

Choose Newznab.
