Configure NZBMegaSearch for Universal Usenet Searching

nzbmegasearch

NZBMegaSearch is your all-in-one usenet search provider. It allows you to aggregate all of your usenet indexers into one search engine. NZBMegaSearch features NZBGet and Sabnzbd integration so you can send your desired release straight to your downloader. You can also use it for services like Sonarr (NzbDrone), SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar and Headphones so that the service will only need to use NZBMegaSearch to look for your content, it won’t have to search each individually. You will host this awesome search aggregator service on your home media server which means it will always be on and available. If you do open it up to outside networks, do password protect it and use https for security.

Configure NZBMegaSearch

Open up your configuration at http://ip.address:5000

Here you can enter security information to password protect NZBMegaSearch. Definitely worth doing if you want to access it from outside your home network.

If you want to use NZBMegaSearch with sonarr (NzbDrone), SickRage or CouchPotato, generate an API key you can use with those programs

configure nzbmegasearch generate API key

In RSS feeds you have a URL you can use in custom RSS feeds with NZBGet or Sabnzbd

You can also activate suggestions, click Save

Make sure Smartsearch, Cache results and PreDB release matching are enabled

If you only want foreign releases add them in the Appended search terms

Click Save

configure nzbmegasearch rss feeds and suggestions

Sabnzbd and NZBGet integration will give you a small icon in your search results where you can send the release directly to Sabnzbd or NZBGet.

Use the format as shown in the screenshot, you will need your API key from Sabnzbd.

Click Save depending on which one you use.

configure nzbmegasearch sabnzbd nzbget integration

Check off the raw indexers you want to use. Fanzub is for Anime for those who like Japanese media.

More importantly, add your newznab providers (DOGNzb, OZnzb, NZB.su)

OMGWTFNZBS changed their API URL and is not currently working in NZBMegaSearch 0.47

configure nzbmegasearch add newznab host and specially supported

Now go to http://ip.address:5000/main and you will see the NZBMegaSearch page.

This is what the movie suggestions look like if you have enabled it

configure nzbmegasearch show movies trending

Search for whatever you want

configure nzbmegasearch enter search terms

Choose categories to narrow your results

configure nzbmegasearch show search categories

I have used the public domain film Night of the Living Dead, you can see the NZBGet and Sabnzbd integration here with its tiny icons.

configure nzbmegasearch show sabnzbd and nzbget integration

If you need to adjust anything, you can get back to the settings page click the cog in the top right hand corner
