IIRC, doesn't BinTube fail when it comes to RARed posts?

That and it's not free. Nothing wrong with that, but with the last free version of Alt.Binz working like a charm and Klibido running on my Linux laptop that I resurrected (yet again) with Ubuntu 7.10, I'm not inclined to shell out for anything anytime soon.

It handles RARs just fine. It even handles RAR files that have incorrect file extensions as it is common on some newsgroups.
I am not familiar with the free software you mentioned, but a side by side comparison might be in order. :popcorn:

BinTube, this was submitted to me in another forum (unfortunately, I can't use it due to my screen display settings), but it looks very similar to your software. And it's free.

BinTube Media Player streams a much wider range of binary content. In addition to RARed Video it supports Images, audio, dvd images, cd images, nfo files and more. Any of these formats are supported whether or not they are in RARs. It also supports Base64 and UU encoded posts in addition to YEncoded ones. It also performs automatic repair by only downloading the required PAR files to perform the repair. I think it's also worth mentioning that while the "BinTube Media Player" name might lead some to believe that it's only useful for downloading media files, it's not so. The program can be used to download, extract and repair any kind of binary usenet content.

Cheers.

Apologies, my mistake. I'll try it out.

EDIT:You are aware that VLC is a GPL project, right? It appears as if you're distributing it as part of BT (the installer looks almost exactly the same), which I'm sure is in violation of the license.

Secondly, BT doesn't support more than one newsserver. I use 3 with 4 connections for each, so that's a problem.

Great idea, though.

BT does not distribute VLC nor is it a requirement to use it as a simple binary downloader or for image and nfo viewing.
The next version of BT will allow the user a choice of using VLC or MPlayer for audio/video playback and neither will be distributed with BT.

Support for multiple servers was not high on our priority list, but will be added soon.

I'm pleased to announce that BinTube now supports SSL encrypted usenet connections. So if you're worried about privacy or your connection speeed is being throttled, you might just like it a bit more.

What is the point of BT?

I'm an nntp junkie and I fail to see the benefit of http code?

Please explain.

Whatever newsreader anyone wants to use, there is no possibility of on-the-fly repair by PAR files. Repair by PAR files whether automatic or manual is an operation that is done after all of the RAR files have finished downloading. Apps like like BinTube Media Player start playback as soon as the first RAR archive is downloaded, and on Usenet that's asking for trouble.

So how much is the software... I have my own Usenet service I like using.
This is a cute Idea... I'll set it up on my HTPC to see if it's usable in the living room.
Normally, I have to log into my file trading server. Download an Nzb.. run newsbin's, wait,
then wait for the file to be joined, scanned then transfered to the Ready to watch folders.

Anything that would shorten my work load would be welcome pay or not..
As long as the "pay" is a one time fee. i'm not going to subscribe to a downloading program.

Like how one usenet service and custom usenet-nzb downloader works.

I have no trouble with pay file trading programs as long as the program is clean.
number one reason I never paid for kazaa...
Knowledge is power. Power corrupts. Study hard. Be evil.
