Sad news indeed for those who enjoy browsing automated scene-to-direct download links - NewSceneFiles has recently announced they’ve closed the service. After 7½ months and more than 56,000 releases, NSF quickly became became a popular replacement for SceneDDL/XLDR in amongst the scene-DDL circuit. All is not lost, however - there’s another automated DDL site that aims to be even better than NSF/SceneDDL/XLDR - SceneFlux.net.
With NewSceneFiles a done-deal, there doesn’t seem to be any other DDL site out there that is both fully automated and resolves to keep actual untouched releases - until now. Everything at SceneFlux is automated from downloading to posting; their unique script takes releases from scene FTPs (not torrents), RARs them and uploads them to various filehosters, then posts the releases on the website. All these steps are displayed & updated on the website in real time (main page and upload queue page), and SF already indexes more than 4,100 unique posts.
Scene/release blogs rely heavily on TV releases, notably because these are smaller and of course more common. SceneFlux is no exception; nearly two-thirds of all releases pertain to TV eps (in both French & English, x264 & XviD). One thing that really stands out is their ever-growing TV Show Database which boasts more than 400 individual shows.
Readers can get relevant information about a TV show and even view all the releases of the show currently available on SceneFlux (for example - http://sceneflux.net/show/Fringe). The database can also list (filter) shows for a given genre/year/network while also providing external links to TVRage/IMDB/TVDB.
The above feature is also directly added into blog posts. Often there will be a “TV show banner” associated to new TV episode posts - simply click this banner to take you to a complete list of all other available releases (for the same show) at SF.
SceneFlux has an ”MP3 Archive” page which displays all current music releases - but what’s really neat is that genres can be browsed by their music type (Rock, Techno, House, Blues, Pop, etc) - as seen in this example:
Other SceneFlux Features…
For an automated DDL project, SceneFlux offers an incredible array of features unseen anywhere else, such as:
Multiple filehosters — Readers are not limited to download from just one or two hosters; SceneFlux offers links for RS, MU, HF, FileFactory, DepositFiles & SharingMatrix.
Search and Archive pages allows to directly see the size/number of files/pretime of the releases (comparable to what torrent trackers do).
‘Release Blog’ Style & Layout — Unlike most automated sites which are quite boring to browse, SceneFlux is more akin to a release blog. Screenshots are posted for many of the releases, as well as movie & TV poster art. Pertinent release info is available, including:
- • Proper release name, size of release, number of files, pretime, etc.
- • On-site NFO & SFV viewing, and episode name (for TV releases).
- • Links to TVRage, IMDb, TheTVDB - with extended info available for some releases.
IRC Announce — Their IRC channel (irc.sceneflux.net @ #sceneflux - hotlink here) announces each release as soon as it is finished downloading, and thus enters the queue, as well as a permalink on the site that will show the status of the upload (with links updated in real time) as well as the usual show/album/movie data.
The “Queue” — Followers of SceneDDL/XLDR will remember the *queue
- SceneFlux incorporates their own queue system for new releases pending publication to the site, which is updated in real-time.
Real-time “Links Updating” — Filehosters tend to delete content & links often; and SceneFlux has an answer to this - viewers are able to refresh the list of available links in real-time. Simply use the “click to refresh download links” option to show current viable links. As far as we know, this feature is unavailable anywhere else (release blog or otherwise).
No Ads — SceneFlux is AD FREE, therefore they need donations to survive since they require upload servers to create the links, and not just index them as most other DDL blogs do.
As of right now, the newest release is Vampire Diaries which pre’d over 3 hours ago.
Maybe their source or script or something died. (LOL at the worst possible time though - with a frontpage article on here pimping them out… and now they look like clowns)
fast/automated release uploading is the whole point of their site - so without that… they suck.
Checked the site before when filenetworksblog did an article.But this article is really a well done review.he site looks promising and offers a lot of features not seen else where,especially the irc looks very appealing.AD free is another bonus and if I become a regular visitor of the site I may consider donating as well if they are dedicated.It would be nice if they can also add mediafire links too.
Thanks for the article.Good luck to the new SceneFlux.
For TV try here: http://www.dedicatedtv.net/
Its quite good from the last few days Ive used it.. I would prefer to have NSF though..
Something else that should be noted. The main uploader that was used for NSF is now helping out SceneFlux. Which should help push it along.
What the fuck NSF and SF are? o.O
“What the fuck NSF and SF are? o.O”-CPX

Is anyone else having trouble connecting to their IRC servers at the moment? I’m using mIRC but I get an “unable to resolve server” error message. Does it use port 6667 like most other servers?
Sceneflux is back up, and it looks amazing. Don’t forget to make donations

RLSLOG.net was suspended by its German hosting company after removal request from law firm representing Universal Music, although we never hosted any files or copyrighted data on our server. Our site is strictly informative.
We are currently looking for new home.
If you have any tips or offers for great dedicated server, we would appreciate your help (QuadCore, 4GB RAM+, SCSI/SAS/SSD, preferably in Europe, not in Germany though). Please contact us at rlslog [@] gmail.com

You are right dude, sad indeed.
I have a feeling that SceneFlux will keep it flowing smoothly.

Scensite is also a great new automated site with many categories:
It’s a great replacement for NSF, sometimes slow to load though.
