You might have heard of Usenet or maybe even have attempted to read newsgroups. But did you know they had much more than just information contributed by users?
Newsgroups are loaded with binary and multimedia content, and its available for free to everyone. However, finding what you need in the vast expanses of the Usenet and downloading it to your computer could be a major challenge — with a couple of your hands and your favorite browser, you can easily bury yourself in searching through thousands of messages and assembling multipart files.
With Ozum, you can find and download files or whole sets of multipart files with a single mouse click. This Usenet «combine harvester» automates user operations with binary-content newsgroups. Besides a newsgroup reader and poster, which are common, it has an active newsgroup directory and a fast search engine that works similar to web search engines and lets you search across newsgroups and find wanted files in seconds. Ozum automatically extracts binary files from any encoding and archives, assembles them from parts, and recovers missing or corrupt files when needed. With Ozum, you can view incomplete or partial video files, preview individual parts of multipart video and sound clips without having to download them all to your disk. Its really fast and really easy.
Besides grabbing and posting multimedia, you can take advantage of Ozum for just reading newsgroups and writing back to them.
