    "Excellent newsreader for multimedia files and pictures."

    January 11, 2009  |   By norald


    I like the built-in viewer for images. Furthermore I use the thumbnail gallery of downloaded images. I also like the the convenient way Ozum handles multimedia files and prepares them for viewing.


    No cons at the moment.


    The built in image viewer allows to proceed to the image of the next message without stepping back to the message pane. This makes the viewer comfortable.

    I also like the possibility to download images with Ozum and get a rough overview of them with the built-in thumbnail gallery. For example my three year old son likes pictures of motorcycles. Unfortunately the newsgroup I have chosen contains every now and then pictures not suitable for minors, posted by some fool deliberately in the wrong newsgroup. So I can review the pictures first, delete the improper pictures and have no embarassing surprises while watching the motorcycles with my son.

    Concerning video files I appreciate Ozum's capability to find the parts of a file, assemble and decode them and to prepare the file for viewing. To sneak a peek into multimedia files is also a time and bandwidth saving feature.
