iPhone, iPod, Xbox 360, and PS3

With Vuze, you’ve come to expect full screen HD entertainment on your Mac and PC. What if you could take these HD videos and easily watch them on the TV in your living room, or the iPhone in your pocket? Ask no more.

With today’s release, we’re unlocking your content and giving it wings to get from your Mac and PC to the other screens in your life:  mobile and TV. Welcome to an open world where you own your content, and you can watch it on any screen you want – large or small.

Multiple Devices:
As part of our thinking, we asked you two weeks ago how you wanted to get your HD video from your PC to your mobile and TV.

The results (based on over 25,000 votes tallied in a single weekend) made it clear you care.  Among those responding, more than 80% of you took an interest in at least one device option.

Which devices would you like us to prioritize?

Which devices would you like us to prioritize?

As of today, you’ll be able to watch your videos on iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Vuze has always supported open platforms and technologies, and we’ve designed our device support to embrace as many of the devices you asked for, as possible. Expect more to follow soon.

Smart About Formats In An Open World:
One of the key pain-points in digital video today is the lack of a consistent video format standard. We look forward to a day when the format landscape is no longer fragmented across a dizzying array of file formats: H.264, MPEG-4, divx, wmv, avi… In the meantime, Vuze will serve as your translator so you don’t have to know which type of file is required for playback on a specific device.

Your Content, Playable On Any Screen:
Another key pain-point has traditionally been cumbersome transport between devices.  Beyond the format maze, its been difficult to get videos easily exported to devices – especially game consoles.  The Vuze team spent considerable time thinking through how to simplify this experience.  Simply drag-and-drop files to the device of your choice within Vuze, and then click play on your Xbox 360, Playstation 3, or Apple devices.

As a result, you’re not locked into a single platform, and you can enjoy the best content across multiple platforms and screens.

How does it work?
The first thing you’ll notice when you download the latest version of Vuze is a new Sidebar item called Devices. Turn it on, and take it for a spin.

Turn On Devices Beta in Sidebar

iTunes, PS3, and Xbox 360 will be auto-detected and show up under Devices in your Sidebar (if they’re present on your computer or network).

Drag-and-drop videos from your Vuze Library (or desktop) to the device of your choice.  Vuze will detect whether or not the video format will playback on the device you select, convert the file, if necessary, and make it available for playback on the device.  All you have to do is sit-back and play your HD content on whatever screen you want.

Drag & Drop From Your Library To A Device

Drag & Drop From Your Library To A Device

For iTunes, Vuze will push the video into your iTunes Library for transfer to your Apple devices.

For PS3 and Xbox 360, simply turn on your console and click the video you want to play.  Vuze will stream the videos from your PC or Mac directly to your game console.

You’re now free to enjoy full screen HD on all your screens.  If you’re anything like us, the first time you transfer a video from Vuze to your iPhone, a smile will cross your face…

Give it a try and let us know what you think.  You can learn more here.  We’re launching the feature in beta so you can help us quickly evolve and improve it.  Awaiting your thoughts…

    Just wish there was automation to start the transcode as soon as the download was complete. With files automatically downloading over night thanks to RSS, it would be great if they were also already in iTunes in the morning so I could just sync my iPhone and walk out the door.

    why drag and drop? there should be an option to automate this. Its a great feature, just needs to be easier to use.

  • Sarah

    Does this “encode” the file for the appropriate device (taking up HardDrive space) or Transcode it on the fly?

    I just installed Vuze 4.2 and do not have “Devices”. I can find no mention of “Devices”, Xbox 360 or anything similar anywhere in the options. What am I doing wrong?

  • Ian

    Except that for my machine, neither the ps3 or the xbox 360 shows up, only Itunes integration poor show vuze.

    Why can’t my mac be used to convert? I’ve already got connect 360 which allows me to view the files in the right format, wanted to use vuze to convert the rest, especially your own style mkv files.

    I love your product and this new update I had been wishing for i THOUGHT was the ultimate upgrade as opposed to using Null Media Uplink, thus saving me memory (when both programs are running)… but am I correct in understanding in FAQ that you don’t support OSX on a PPC (with 2.gb of ram)to PS3 streaming??? Please tell me it ain’t so and that its in the works?!!!!! Come on Guys Please Please PLEASE tell me it’s a patch coming soon! I have not checked the forums yet but I am about to!!

    When I try to connect using the 360, nothing shows up? All I see is previous MCE connections? Am I missing something?

  • silvermind

    Sigh… Streaming to the PS3 has always worked :S Only the decoding of certain videos won’t.

    I’m assuming this new upgrade solves that problem by putting using the correct filters.

    I have the latest version of Vuze (4.2x) installed in two Macs.

    My Intel iMac delivers the “Devices” toolbar without problem. My non-Intel iMac does not. Is the latest Vuze only usable on Intel Macs?

    Thanks!

  • Ahmal

    Please don’t neglect those of us who still want to burn them onto disks as DVDs VCDs and DivX disks. As it stands now it’s problematic to reconcile disparate formats and resolutions into a single playable disk.

  • Cathy Miller

    I like Vuze because it’s very easy to use. Ilearned about it from my brother.

  • MrObvious

    It would be cool if a lite version of Vuze could be ported to the iPhone. It wouldn’t need to be able to download all formats, just download what it could play. It would have to monitor available space and ensure that enough remained free for the phone to function properly. There is a Joost player app that runs on iPhone; so, the possibility exists, that it could be done.

  • SnowCrash7

    A few things Vuze needs to fix or clean up…..once a file is removed from the download directory one get endless error messages about a ‘file not found’. Need to make it much easier to turn those messages off.

  • tudou

    1. Add a button to the Options window next to and
    2. Add the option “Restore All Settings to Default”
    3. Add the option “Track User Setting Changes” [a time stamped change record]
    4. Add function “Send User Settings to Clipboard” and “Print User Settings”

    There are so many Vuze options that it’s easy to forget what one has done, making it very difficult to isolate which change made a difference. This is particularly true with NAT issues.
