Editors' Review

+

Formerly the feature-rich Azureus, Vuze takes Azureus' BitTorrent foundation and builds on top of it a network for video discovery and user-created video publishing tied together by social networking.

From XML torrent options to IP filters, firewall tests to UPnP plug-ins to baked-in social networking, Vuze isn't breaking new ground--the original BitTorrent client has gone this path, too--but it is doing it in an innovative and attractive way. When you install the program, you're faced with a Web 2.0-style interface from which you can get a general overview of your torrents and Vuze's latest media. Users can drill down with the "On Vuze" tab for more vids, the Library tab for your downloaded content, and the Publish tab to send your video torrents out into the wild.

The Advanced tab is now the home of the torrent client controls and is basically the old Azureus interface and options. There's still a configuration wizard, an easy-to-use torrent maker, and dozens of ways to set your statistics logs so you can track download speed and performance. Vuze is an even bigger resource hog than Azureus was, but it's the new features that may turn some users off the client entirely.

"Simply Awesome"

October 13, 2008  |  By divyanshuduttaroy

 |  Version: Vuze 3.1.0.0

Pros

I like my software to look great. And if Vuze is a Picasso, the rest are paintings by me on disposed diapers.

Vuze also offers great features and a huge number of tweaks that give a novice like me a pro like feel.

Cons

I didn't find anything over past 3 months of use!

Summary

The best I've used.

"Would not install correctly"

October 12, 2008  |  By coldmike01

 |  Version: Vuze 3.1.0.0

Pros

IT had a wide variety of features, this was kinda like YouTube but you are able to download all the information.

Cons

I could not get this to install correctly, i tried for over 2 hours of install_uninstall_restart comp_redownload_install_uninstall, I kept getting a script error.so i called a buddy of mine to download this, and he got the same error.

Summary

If you get a good install of this program, it can be very useful with downloads, streaming, or just viewing information.
