Prerequisites: Usenet vs BitTorrent
To use Cloudbox, you will need to choose which method you will use to download your media with. It can either be Usenet, Torrents, or both.
If you plan on using Usenet (i.e. Newsgroups) with Cloudbox, you'll need 2 things: a Usenet provider and a Usenet indexer. We recommend you have multiple indexers (and even multiple providers) to better your chances of finding/downloading media.
If you plan on using torrents with Cloudbox, we recommend you have access to a private torrent tracker as most servers don't allow public ones. However, if you still want to use public torrent trackers with Cloudbox, you are free to do so.
