NZB file extension - Newzbin download pointer
What is nzb file? How to open nzb files?
File type specification:
The nzb file extension is used for an XML-based file format for retrieving posts from NNTP (Usenet) servers. The format was conceived by the developers of the Newzbin.com Usenet Index.
The nzb is effective when used with search-capable websites. These websites create *.nzb files out of what is needed to be downloaded. Using this concept, headers would not be downloaded hence the NZB method is quicker and more bandwidth-efficient.
Each Usenet message has a unique identifier called the "Message ID". When a large file is posted to a Usenet newsgroup, it is usually divided into multiple messages (called segments or parts) each having its own Message-ID.
An nzb-capable Usenet client will read the Message-ID from the NZB file, download them and decode the messages back into a binary file (usually using yEnc or Uuencode).
