XDCC Browser is a free and open-source software application that gives you the possibility to look for XDCC files across several websites. It comes bundled with mIRC.
Install the XDCC script in mIRC
Once the installation operation is over, you can launch mIRC to install the script from the "Remote Events" section. It will set all its default options.
After setting up everything, you can perform a file search and narrow down results by defining the minimum or maximum size, along with the scan scope, such as XDCC Finder, XDCC Report, XDCCing, SearchXDCC.
Search for, manage, and examine packs
Furthermore, you can use the browser supported by the app to examine, remove and add new packs without requesting, as well as to get the network's channel list.
In another section of XDCC Browser you can analyze details on requests, namely the pack name, number, size, status, order, nick name, channel, network, and server. It's possible to join selected packs or to request all. Similarly, you can check out downloads.
Configure numerous app settings
The software application provides you with a wide range of configurable options. For example, it can automatically move all finished requests to a custom-defined folder on the disk, stay on top of other windows, set the default request type to /msg or /ctcp, connect via SSL, turn off the computer as soon as all tasks are done, hide packs in the channel window, or avoid long network sessions.
What's more, you can set mIRC to always start minimized, enable or disable the file server browser and status window, modify the default timers for "Request again" and "Get fail", get files only from trusted users, or change the listing type (XDCC packs, file servers, FTP sites).
Evaluation and conclusion
There were no kind of stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that the utility didn't hang, crash or display error messages. CPU and RAM consumption was low, so it didn't hamper system performance.
All in all, XDCC Browser comes packed with practical options to help you look for XDCC files with the help of mIRC. Too bad it hasn't been updated for a long time.
