Features:
  
Requirements
+
- Native NZB parser.
 
+
- Native threaded (multiple connections) NNTP client.
    To use nzb you need to have access to a news/nntp (Usenet) server that provides binaries. Your ISP may provide this service to you but you usually need a premium usenet provider. I strongly recommend Giganews which provides a flawless service and a long retention. Especially if you intend to stream data directly Giganews provides both high speeds and complete files.

- Native yEnc decoder.
 
+
- Native uuencoding decoder.
    Another thing you will need is a Usenet indexing service which provides .nzb files. A well known and good service that provides a Usenet index is Newzbin.
+
- Multi-threaded NZB streaming.
 
+
- Preliminary RAR support for streams (full multi-volume uncompressed RAR archives can be streamed directly).
Features

- Built-in SSL support
