StreamReactor Newsreader homepage:
SteamReactor is a Usenet browser software that is especially designed for media files. It allows the user to download binary files and open the file immediately after the download has started. This tool is very useful as many multipart binaries take hours to download and integrated video player automatically can play the file immediately after download. The newsreader comes with an integrated video player based on the powerful VLC media player . Steamreactor's video player will be able to handle most video and audio formats. One slick feature is that the newsreader allows 4 different videos to be sampled at one time as they are downloading.
The Newsreader also supports the use of NZB's so you do not have to browse through each newsgroup. What makes this software really easy to use is that it comes with an integrated Usenet Search feature like clients like Newsleecher . You can just enter the subject you are interested in the search bar, scan the returned results and then download what you need. Once you download the file, you can choose to preview the file if you choose. The newer versions of SteamReactor also automatically extract the file for you from RAR form as it is downloading or after it downloads. SteamReactor Newsreader also has an integrated NFO-viewer so that you can view details of the articles that you are interested in downloading.
Downloading with SteamReactor Newsreader is also secure. The client comes with support for SSL encryption and also support for multiple news servers. SSL will ensure you get the fastest speed to your Usenet provider because it helps get around any speed throttling your ISP may set on your broadband connection. Multiple server support also ensures that if you do not find a particular article on one server, you can check the next available news server.
If you are looking for a "do it all" newsreader, this may be the one. Although it is still in Beta, it works very well. To help developers improve on the software, make sure to send in all feedback of any user issues or bugs that you may experience.
If you are interested in testing this newsreader, make sure you have a Binary Newsgroup provider.
