"Very popular Java based BitTorrent client."

Overview

Vuze, formerly known as Azureus, is a popular BitTorrent client that facilitates the process of downloading and uploading files via the BitTorrent protocol. This powerful P2P file sharing software makes it easy to find, obtain, and share all kinds of files.

Installation

Although the file size is less than 10MB, allowing for a quick download, the installation process does present a few hurdles, with several requests to install third-party software. When checking the box to agree to the terms of usage you'll be asked if you want to install the Vuze Remote toolbar. Checking this box is not necessary for installation. After the installation the program will automatically launch an additional speed test component will be installed to help you test and optimize your downloading/uploading capabilities with Vuze.

Interface

The Vuze main interface is simplified by a left navigational pane that gives you easy access to a 'Getting Started' module, which helps you start finding and downloading content. Also in the left navigational pane are links to device playback options, your media library, RSS subscriptions, the Vuze HD network, Vuze Games, and your program notifications. The top toolbar contains self-explanatory icons that facilitate basic torrent actions like Download, Play, Launch, Up/Down Queue, Stop, Delete, and Change View.

Pros

  • Meta Search feature makes it easy to search through several BitTorrent databases simultaneously within a convenient centralized interface

  • RSS subscriptions help you find content similar to files you've already downloaded. This feature is particularly useful for keeping track of webisode series.

  • HD Player lets you playback 1080p high-definition video in full screen, supporting most popular formats like AVI, QuickTime, and XVID.

  • Supports offline playback of downloaded media files

  • Drag and drop files to the device of your choice for instant playback. Supports iPads, iPhones, iPods, PS3, Xbox, PSP, TiVo, and Samsung televisions

Cons

  • Lacks some features found in the paid version, which include built-in DVD burner, Antivirus, content streaming while downloading, and no advertisements.

Alternatives
