FreeNAS RSS Extentsion

FreeNAS Transmission RSS extentsion is a PHP script installed to your FreeNAS box. It adds a tab called extentsions with a subsection called rss in which it is possible to add feeds, add filters, and RSS history about and to the feeds. This is useful to auto download torrents such as movies or tvshows or even music or even games. ¬†If you haven’t already customized your feed you can add specific filter exceptions to exclude torrents from being download cause they do not meet your criteria or you already have a similar file (i.e. episode). With this you can be positive it will not redownload media or unwanted media. This enables your FreeNAS box to act as a dvr of sorts. It could auto torrent every new episode from a bittorrent tracker as they become available for download (as this is still illegal if you are breaking international copyright laws).
