NZBGet is a much lighter than SABnzbd binary newsgrabber, which is perfect to use on our media players.

2. Extract the package (for example in /opt):
tar xvf nzbget-version-xxx.tar
3. If you have Optware installed, you can copy original configuration file to default Optware path (no need to use -c parameter each time):
