Looks like the flexget project is experimenting with a web interface: http://flexget.com/wiki/Web-UI which may make providing this feature a bit easier.
Sick Beard hasn't been ported to FreeBSD yet. Ports request is here: http://forums.pcbsd.org/showthread.php?t=14575.
there is any chance to find a hamachi pbi?
GlusterFS implementation in FreeNas
looking into GlusterFS which I think would be wonderful feature to add FreeNas .
With such feature we can scale-out easily storage systems to Peta's and in the same time increase dramatically the performance.
Apparently this should work on FreeBSD, though the information is out of date and needs to be tested: http://www.gluster.org/community/doc...usterFS_on_BSD and http://wiki.freebsd.org/GlusterFS.
Surprised I didn't see any DLNA servers with transcoding capabilities. I'm well aware that MiniDLNA (not transcoding) is already available as a built-in (8.0.3) and I think it should remain that way, it just needs to be integrated into the GUI which I highly recommend vice making it a separate plug-in. If managing it would be easier as a plug-in them by all means make it a plug-in.
But MiniDLNA doesn't do transcoding and a few other servers out there do. I'm not favoring any of them as I don't know which is better or what issues each have but here the ones I know of... Serviio, MediaTomb, and Fuppies. I've never been a fan of Fuppies in the past but that was a long time ago.
These transcoding applications will of coarse take CPU power so it's not for everyone but for those who want a media serving machine, this is a key component.
For me, the essential plugin would be Logitech Media Server (previously known as Squeezebox Server), now in version 7.7.1. I know of people stuck with FreeNAS 7 because of LMS (or SBS). There is a PBI request here:
but the linked port is a very old version. It should use the 7.7 brach.
Transmission would also be helpful, but it has been mentioned before and a PBI does exist for PC-BSD.

Logitech Media Server
I wouldn't say that Logitech Media Server is an essential for me, but it would certainly be a great asset: at present I have LMS running on a Windows machine that is networked to my FreeNAS box, but it would definitely be better to have LMS running on the FreeNAS box itself.
