About Vuze

With the release of Vuze, Azureus is jumping onto the legal torrent bandwagon. This application features the classic and extensive Azureus torrent client and adds to it an online platform from which you can download and submit legal audio and video content.

Vuze’s interface is a complete shake-up to what Azureus users are used to. The BitTorrent developer has decided to focus on online multimedia content and introduce user participation. The first thing the user sees is a "Find, Download, Play" screen to introduce you to Vuze. You can browse files by using the left side menu, divided in time, main channels and tags. The menu at the top also links to hot and new content. Vuze takes the web 2.0 road and you'll see that most of the files have tags. You can write out a comment and leave a rating. The program also makes it a no brainer to send a video by email and link to content directly from your blog or website. Additionally, there are social bookmarking links for each file.

Downloading torrents is as simple as using the search bar, which the gives you options to search the Vuze site and results from the major bittorent sites such as Btjunkie. You can also easily add more sites to that list if you wish.

    Vuze provides a service in which users can share files without having to set up their own file sharing network or email users individually. Unlike file sharing sites or programs, Vuze allows users to upload and download large BitTorrents that can be accessed by many users. Sometimes users need to be able to access very large files, but are unable to go directly to the source. Many businesses need to share very large files that exceed the limit for email, so Vuze is a better alternative, especially for those who do not have access to a subscription-based file sharing program.

    Pros :

    • Vuze is a great way to transfer files without having to pay for a file sharing program or app.
    • The greatest advantage I see when using Vuze is being able to use multiple sources to download the same file. This allows for downloading larger files much quicker by downloading various parts of the file from various users simultaneously.
    • If I wanted to download a large video, for example, I can do so in mere minutes rather than hours or even days.
    • I also like the ability to pause a download and continue it later, as opposed to stopping and having to restart.
    • You also have the ability to play video or audio files as they download, allowing you to check the quality before the download is complete.

    Cons :

    • It's very important to keep safety in mind when using Vuze. Make sure you are only downloading material from sources you trust. Since this is peer-to-peer network, it is very possible to download a virus, malware, or other malicious software without knowing, until it is too late. In order to support the free services Vuze provides, you will have to put up with their ads, unless you do sign up for their subscription service.
    • It is also a Java based software, so if you're system has trouble with this type of programming, it may cause some issues.

    If you need the torrent client which functionality is limited to downloading torrents, Vuze is definitely not for you. There are a lot of additional features here: it is both a BitTorrent client and media player, RSS reader and the file manager. The app is written in Java and, therefore, works well on Windows, Linux, and Mac. When you install it, it may add a couple of adware applications, so be careful. But immediately after starting it analyzes your Internet connection speed and selects the optimal data transfer rate. The automatic analysis is a very interesting solution, because the speed limit is the first setting which is tweaked by the user after installing any torrent client. However, if there were some problems during the speed channel testing, you can easily change the limit in the setting window. One of the most interesting features of Vuze — support for various devices. The program supports the wireless transfer of downloaded content on iPhone, iPad, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, TiVo, and so on. It is enough just to drag the file to the device icon in the client’s interface.

    Vuze automatically determines whether the device can play the file, and if not, converts it to the necessary format. Like all modern torrent clients, Vuze has the browser remote control feature. Mobile devices remote control is also available. Vuze supports almost all popular technologies that are now used for BitTorrent network. So, if there is only one seeder, you can use super-seeding, which in some cases allows to speed up the data transfer. In addition, the client works with web seeding, supports UPnP / NAT-PMP, DHT, and magnet links. The program also includes a meta search tool.

    Pros :

    • Handy settings window with the keyword search Plug-ins support.
    • Great support of mobile devices.
    • Seamless transcoding on many devices.

    Cons :

    • Consumes a lot of system resources.
