Editors' Review


Vuze is the free, full-featured reincarnation of the popular BitTorrent client Azureus, an app for finding and watching video content that you download via torrent files.

Compared with more traditional and utilitarian BitTorrent clients, Vuze has a much richer, iTunes-style interface--with as much attention devoted to finding and viewing videos as to downloading them. You can browse the "Vuze HD Network" for videos (although you'll find a lot of lower-grade Internet fare, like promos, trailers, and podcasts), or you can look around using a friendly, easy search interface (although much of the content you'll find is copyright protected, which Vuze warns you about). The download functionality is excellent and fast, with plenty of control over even esoteric settings--and it's easy to view technical minutiae for a torrent in Vuze's big visual interface. Vuze will also help you get video into your iTunes with a beta "Devices" feature, and even onto your Apple TV, iPhone, iPod, or other devices.

For someone new to torrents, Vuze could be a great, easy introduction. If you're already familiar with using torrents and you're happy with your current client, you might not find enough here to inspire a switch.

"I love this APP"

August 06, 2011  |  By pointer165-2009

 |  Version: Vuze


I had NO CLUE about all this stuff and this is where it all began last year


today(2011) more than ever, they are ATTEMPTING to go after people in courts of law all over the world, if you download copywrited material, be it music,videos ,movies.You must do it behind the "Berlin Wall" I call it..and that is called a VPN


do your research, you do not want to get a summons from your ISP..and that has happened twice to me BUT currently(8/2011) the courts in the USA are throwing out cases for many reasons and nothing has ever been proven,evidence when you have a WIFI, is not evidence you want to bring to a JURY!!..I know cause I have been on many juries and if there is any question in your head that something is NOT right "with this picture" you MUST vote NO!..this is THE USA..
