Vuze Update: Less is more

389 Flares Twitter 6 Facebook 381 Google+ 2 LinkedIn 0 Email -- Buffer 0 389 Flares ×

Over the years, we’ve spent a lot of time listening and building the features you wanted us to add.

An equally important question is how we can improve Vuze by delivering less of what you don’t want.  We heard you loud and clear when you asked for less clutter, less bloat, and less memory footprint.

With this release, we focused more time on removing features than adding features.  It’s a useful exercise for any product that’s been around since 2007, and has been downloaded over 70 million times.  As a result, the latest release is faster to start, faster to navigate, and uses significantly less memory (up to 3X less memory!).

How did we do it?

Redesigned Search

Our first job was to significantly clean up the search experience.  The new search results page is less cluttered, enabling you to find what you’re looking for, as quickly as possible.  You’ll notice two design improvements:

  1. Color-coded rank icon: Our goal is to guide you to the best result as quickly as possible (the largest green bar you can find on the search results page).
  2. Larger download button: One of the challenges of meta-search is the need to combine the designs of multiple disparate sites.  We’ve added a large download button after clicking a search result to enable you to quickly download the content you want.

More importantly, we’ve optimized the browser integration for search to significantly decrease memory usage.

Faster Network, On Your Terms

You’ll also notice two changes that will significantly improve the performance of the Vuze HD Network:

  1. Default Vuze Homepage: Vuze HD Network is no longer the default page when you open Vuze.  Software on your desktop is yours.  If you simply use Vuze as a media manager (or downloader), you shouldn’t have to navigate through the network every time you open Vuze.  From now on, Vuze will open to the last window you had open.  If you only use the Library, you’ll only see the Library.
  2. Lighter Weight Network: For those of you who enjoy browsing the Vuze HD Network,  you’ll notice a much simpler, faster, and less bloated design.  The network is now powered by simple RSS feeds from some of the most popular video publishers on the web.  As part of this change, you’ll also notice a change in the programming available on the network.  Publishers that do not offer RSS feeds for their content are no longer available on the Vuze HD Network.

RIP Friends

Finally, you’ll notice that the Friends feature for connecting and sharing content is no longer part of Vuze.  When we asked you last month which features were important to you, Friends ranked dead last (a ranking confirmed by internal Friends usage stats).  While we still believe that sharing has a role in Vuze, the social media landscape has changed significantly since we launched Friends.  Sites like Facebook and Twitter have spread like wild fire around the world.  With this evolution, products like Vuze do not require their own social networking feature.

And for those of you who leveraged Friends to take advantage of faster downloads through FriendBoost, expect to see some alternatives for faster downloads in the not so distant future.  Connecting with Friends should not be a prerequisite to faster download.

This “less is more” philosophy isn’t about a single release.  We plan to continue these efforts over the next several releases (and beyond) to ensure that Vuze has the best possible user experience.  That said, we believe that the “size” argument CAN be taken too far.

a (very) tiny mobile phone

Of course size matters.  However, at a certain point, small size cripples the ability of a software application to have basic functionality like search and device integration.  Let’s face it.  Unless you still have a computer with a floppy drive, your computer’s memory is not likely to be a severe constraint.  The key is to develop functionality that adds value, and to deliver this value in an elegant way (both in terms of user experience and resource usage).  Expect us to walk this line moving forward.

Upgrade timeframe: Vuze 4.3 is a required update due to some significant back-end infrastructure changes that Vuze will be making by the end of November.  As of December 1, Friends will no longer function across all versions of Vuze, and the Vuze HD Network will no longer function in older versions of Vuze.  The back-end changes are required to decrease our costs in providing a free software program to our growing community of users.

We’re excited about the improvements, and hope you will be too.  Take Vuze 4.3 for a spin, and let us know what you think.

UPDATE: The Vuze team just pushed live a series of updates based on your feedback (Vuze 4.3.0.4).  In addition, this latest release includes expanded support for magnet links.  Read more

  • wac

    good work boys

  • johnny b. goode

    hellz yeah! thank you! That comment about the floppy drive hurt me though.

  • Matt

    I like it. I can already see almost half the memory usage of the last version, you guys really did a good job.

  • petrock

    Please dont take out friends! its the best part! Having a big network of friends is awsome when they can share files with you; you get movies and music that you normaly wouldnt download.

  • Gav

    you guys rock! can’t wait to see what new speed boost features you add to replace friends.

  • mike

    vuze sucks now i likeed the old one so pleas bring that back there were good stuff in old version this one has nothing.

  • Richard L. (MovieBuff333)

    Awesome job! Azureus first got my attention years ago to become my favourite with all of it’s customizing and the ability to prioritize parts & files (and block unwanted files inside a single torrent set).

    Then they transitioned very nicely into Vuze which took everything I wanted straight to the next level! The Vuze HD Network was a great browsing ground to show me videos & series I didn’t know existed and has lead to some rentals, purchases, and trips to the movie theater based on what I saw right here.

    I will admit that I never dipped into the Friends feature in Vuze…I was more into talking to my friends & getting them interested in Vuze & the good search results it had lead me to. So I won’t miss Friends because I still have good friends. (Grin)

    Also, looking forward to that larger Download button on searched sites (inside Vuze) because some of the resulting sites can have misleading links so you have to click a few wrong buttons before you start the actual download. Great stuff, Vuze! Making my life easier all the time.

  • Melodaf

    I used to use a lot of friends feature to boost transfers to my friends and vice-versa. I was not happy with the dead of it before a “new boost solution” appears.

  • Benjamin Hrehorick

    I really like the idea, but I am having some slight issues when it comes down to downloading the update. I hope I can get it figured out before what I’m usuing now becomes completely obsolete.

  • silwit

    Linked download page says Mac OS 10.4.8+ required for the new, faster, less footprint Vuze version, however downloaded installer won’t install unless OS is 10.5 at least.

  • Warren

    Nicely done. As others have noted it’s faster, which to my mind is much more important than plugin bloat or feature creep. Thanks for this update.

  • Chris

    Mac 10.4.8 users (Benjamin and silwit), select the Help menu in Vuze, and “Check for updates.” This should get the job done.

  • Gary Enriquez

    Vuze was recommended to me by a friend before as Azureus and I have shared it with my friends and we are all very happy with it. Azureus is very user-friendly and very professional. Thank you very much and keep up the good work guys… :)

  • Glen Scot

    Really nice! I have tried other clients but have always come back to Azureus or VUZE as it is now known. SIMPLY THE BEST, and it keeps getting better.

    Thanks to all of you really!

  • Tom aka Pentiboy

    I am so happy for you guys! I have been using your client for a very long time and i fucking love it! I love you to =) XOXO

  • Jack Fuge

    Awesome!!! I love the new Vuze, already noticing the impact it has on my system, having more memory available.

    I didn’t use the friends feature, and I don’t think i ever would. My downloads were plenty fast enough without the boosting!

  • MR

    The new format has messed up the search results display. Theres a seperate annoying window on the top right that hides most of the results. How do you get rid of it?

    Good on you for going back to Vuze’s roots! I started with Azureus and now I’ve got it back! :-) It’s been a bit of a journey but worth it as this product is evolving well . . . keep up the good work and listening to your users.

  • rick

    it is really way way faster, THANKS!

  • Who

    I like Vuze but this new version gives a lot of troubles on my mac. Tekst disappering resulting in a blank page, the blue ‘new’ status of subscriptions not working, scrolling acting strang… I’m afraid I downloaded to soon had had better wait for a updated version.

  • UnhappyChappy

    :( Is there a way to increase the search results per page???
    10 per page is horrible.

    Thank you. Good work

    vuze is amazing i have been using it now for two years.
    thank you.

  • Michael T

    Awsesome job. But did you have to insult us folks who still have a floppy drive attached to their computers? Did you ever consider that we may have both gobbs of memory as well as a floppy drive to be used for old legacy and I do mean old leagacy programs.

    Nice job and excellent timing. I was just about to abandon Vuze for a lighter weight alternative, but now I think I’ll stay.

    It seems much faster! Thanks!

  • killchain

    I cant see all of the search results page, its offset to the right, cant see the page count, or go to next page. what am i doing wrong ? is there a setting ive messed up?

  • Horse_Man

    I Would like to see a picture of the videos. having the option of playing a sample of the video was a good thing. Only being able to read them sucks. The new Library super sucks. What happened to the music video section? I still have not been abel to find full lenth movies, only stupid trailers. That super duper sucks. At least with the old look I could see what I wanted to download.

  • Jevon S

    I am going to miss the friends feature a lot, as it provided a simple and easy way for me to send large files between a private group of people.

    It also provided me with the facility to share torrents with those who couldn’t find them on their own or whose network permissions didn’t allow them to load torrent distribution sites or just simply sending them a file that I thought would be interesting.

  • Robin

    Can i install vuze in linux(ubuntu 9.10 ver)

  • Leeann

    What a crock of shit!!! Friends was an important feature for me personally, I can see others have commented also, do the right thing and bring it back!

  • skjahangeer

    vuze is very good.My net is fast, But there is slow in downloading.

  • nathan

    vuze is good, but friends are gone… one of best things of vuze….
    Update this new version so we have back our friends

  • OH, I NEED FIRENDS

    I DONT THINK U HAVE A FAIR JUDGEMENT OVER THE FRIENDS FEATURE!

    simpily becuz too many ppl didn’t take the vote.

    Stripping this feature brutally is unwise. at least provide an alternative way….

  • anomas

    keep freinds in that was really good now i cant share stuff wwith them i have freinds all over the world that crontibute to my dowmload speeds and help 2 seed torrents

  • anonmas

    i like buddys and also this version crashes ALOT

  • anna

    well perhaps i’ll be the one who likes vuze because of friends. But the possibility to excange private files with concret persons and to talk using one aplication was a good idea. Now it will be necessary to open another wihdow to chat. Isn’t posssible to keep my old version????

  • Adam

    I have been downloading the same file for 2 weeks now, if I upgrade, does anyone know if the download will continue? Thanks.

  • ABCDE

    THERE IS NO “MUSIC VIDEOS” CATEGORY IN THIS VERSION. WHY??????
    I HATE THIS VERSION

  • sfdyoung

    I like the speed! The banner at the top of the search result page seems larger than necessary, and making each result two lines instead of one means a lot more pages to shuffle through. However, it’s still a vast improvement performance-wise, which is what I’m interested in.

  • Hello

    Tanks guys it is really faster i love vuze it is the best keep it on guys

  • Redclothz1

    Wha t about User Uploads?
    can we have an update plz.

  • Britt

    You’ve got it all wrong people! Networking in Facebook and Twitter has not the possibility of sharing files and the peace of mind of these being encoded. Removing the Friends function is the biggest mistake you could have possibly made. All the rest is fine, but if I just want a sharing programme, it’s just the same to have a simple mµtorrent.

  • boaby

    Seems like a good update. I never used friends and found search to be next to useless. I like the visual fine-tuning of the interface especially in Advanced view. Speed of launch is vastly better.

  • Dave

    This ‘new’ version is horrible. I can’t find good music videos anymore. And, the movie I downloaded doesn’t work.

    Is there a way to go back to the last version?

  • Buntcher

    WTF ??? I am really dissapointed about not having friends on VUze anymore! Maybe it was a bit slower but i was receiving notifications from friends and etc. This new version has Friends R.I.P and it really sucks.. I am thinking of uninstalling Vuze or reinstalling to the previous version. This was a bad move. When there are no friends, why are there still the notifications? cant get that either

  • Buntcher

    this version sucks I want to get back to the previous one. seriously

  • Britt

    No more friends function means no more notifications and definetly not fun anymore. I’ll keep the old version till you force me to update and maybe then, I won’t get it anymore. PS it is really sad after amost two years.

  • Levi

    It’s great that vuze is lighter to run but you’ve really messed up the vuze hd network.

    You just can’t find anything anymore, the old version like what you have at http://www.vuze.com/content/Gateway.html was so much easier to navigate due to the simple menu on the left with links to more than 5 categories.

    At the very least can yuou give us back all the categories we used to have so that we can find things again.

  • anirban

    you people are simply great i wish u all the best for the future
    god bless you all for good work

  • g-t

    Great Job!!
    This is a very nice update! Thank you, very much for listening to what the users actually want.
    Less IS more, very simple and to the point.

    More people should start doing this! Many products nowadways have way too many features, instead of focusing on being the best at what they do.

    Keep it up! And thanks for listening!

    Faster? Not my experience.

    There are some good things about the update but the big annoyer is that I keep losing all of my files from the various views. Click on “simple list” and all the files disappear from view (though they are still up/downloading). Sometimes they disappear under “Advanced List”. It’s a big drag. Nothing worse that a buggy update.

  • bob

    the new hd network is severely crippled. i like the idea of reducing bloat but looks like the hd network has been reduced to the point of uselessness.

    the hd network should seek to replace the television. from adult related stuff, to comedy, to action, etc, it should be a platform for those major and minor to distribute content and vuze make a share of income.

    also if your vuze is crashing you probably need to delete your azureus.config and the back up, restart and let a new one be created.

  • Dayana

    I really liked the old Vuze. I even liked the default HD Network page since it had things that caught my interest. The new one is just boring. More important, the search pages seem like there are less hits.
    – Is there anyway to uninstall this update? If not, I’ll have to uninstall and try to clean install the older version. However, I fear it may automatically update to this version again.
    – Please give us a choice to which version we want to use.

  • Thorngriff

    Is this change a result of the upcoming purchase of vuze by a microsoft owned company?
    Clearly you have not listened to all us users as the friends share option was used and not bottom of our list of things we wanted to keep. Also the new layout sucks, it looks very basic (very microsoft).Very disappointed in that everything had to change to get a smaller footprint.

    Hey,

    I saw a new feature in Vuze, “Offline Downloaders”. Its great that you are constantly adding UPnp toys, but I can’t find out what this particular toy does. Anyone have an idea, or better yet, an explanation?

    Tangent:
    My daydream is that it would offline the current downloads to a NAS box or some other lighter computer on the local network. I am pretty sure that is wrong, but it would be nice to leverage computing power from a bunch of lower powered boxes, and integrate to a power-guzzler when it is on.

  • Ravikant Gupta, Delhi

    Thanks for all the hard work you guys and gals have put into such a great program..Keep up the good work Team Vuze.

    I’ve been working with Azuru / Vuze for over 5 year now and I have been delighted each time I ee an update coming through.You eem to work on the axiom ” ….if it not broken why not tweak around with it and ee if we can improve it further “. Well done on the great product that you have today. Download time are fater and the quality i better. THANK YOU !

  • zerogravity3000

    I can’t believe i participated in the survey and this was the result ! !

    With exception of the automatic toolbar install (which was easily uninstalled by following instructions) neither myself or any of my friends who used VUZE 4.2.0.8 regularly had any issues.

    While VUZE 4.3 may be leaner and faster, the interface is so stripped down in comparison to this; http://www.vuze.com/content/Gateway.html
    that it is not even worth the effort to learn to navigate.

    I used the VUZE client as a way to preview, browse and share new content, but based on the direction the 4.3 has taken, it is clear that VUZE has moved away everything that set it apart from all the other clients.

    So for now i am uninstalling VUZE from all my computers and looking for a new client for this purpose.

    Anyone know of an alternative to vuze?

  • Suzzie

    I want my friends back…Not liking this update

  • Model Behavior

    Bring the friends feature back in text or HTML. Failure to do so will result in your deaths!

    You pizza pocket morons!

  • Model Behavior

    LOL, I really didn’t mean that. …. I just don’t understand why you couldn’t fix the Friends feature so it would have been a ‘lite’ version, written in text or HTML instead of Java? It would have been a cinch to do, and sharing/notifications/reseeding would have continued.

    I have loaded u-Torrent, it only uses 8k RAM, instead of 220k RAM and it does exactly the same thing. We don’t need a fancy interface to share our files.

    And I’ve stopped sharing now, because there are no friends to share with and therefore I feel like I’m under no obligation.

    But you’re still pizza pocket morons for not considering a friends text option! LOL. :-)

  • jim

    why did you at vuse stop using chat and friend opt

  • Hades

    Wow, now this was childish… After i heve read all the thread, how come your poll was saying that Friends Feature needs to be KILLED?! I mean, it could be hidden or something, but ERASED?? Of course its obvious everyone was using Vuze because of this marvelous feature, this and the OLD HD NETWORK or else we would be using utorrent, or some stupid browser plugin to download torrents.

    Well this needs to be thinked, when i red the setence “With this release, we focused more time on removing features than adding features” i had a good impression, but removing the only different parts of the program it will only make vuze like other clients! and most suck!! And dont come and say its faster, a Pentium IV runs vuze smoothly, and NO, it will not SPEED your bandwith/downloads, and thats another kind of publicity that i think that must be abolished.

    I will try to install old Vuze client, if im not succeed,im sorry my journey to search another good client with factual improvements is about to begin.

  • Hades

    And sorry for mispelling, i was really angry, as i was going to send torrents to my friends, but now I CANT!

  • Dex

    These are important to a video sharing site:
    ===================================================
    FRIENDS, PREVIEW & RATINGS

    The new Web Design is fascinating if only have these features come back.

  • bree

    id like the old one back considering i cant actually play my music now

  • Kwaut_Lizard

    A simple friends list & chat function was one of the most important features for those that know how to use a torrent manager properly. Uploading non-copyrighted films was nice, I’m sure they are still there but the search function/database that wasn’t so great before, is a joke now.

    Pizza Pocket Morons LOL … I have to agree with Model Behavior that in your mad search to reduce bandwidth use, your mem storage requirements and our RAM, you are gutting what was developing into a nice torrent managing app. Hmmmm iTunes with a torrent search – whoopeee – I am sure the non-Mac users are all excited by this but I’m not.

    BTW Model Behavior, please reload the older version. I was just getting to enjoy sharing with you. Thanks

  • bree

    alright now im pissed i cant listen to any of the music that i downloaded, is there anyway to get the old version back??

  • beast-usa

    Friends gone hmmmm I liked that feature. Less load??? it’s 2009 most people have a gig or more of memory. Faster? I really don’t see any speed difference? It uses about 50 to 60 less megs of ram….still 3 to 8% of all 4 cores on the cpu? Did you guys get in trouble with the friends sharing?
    Looks the same, same speed, less use. I do thank you for giving such a great service for free! But why the brutal upgrade? If it’s not broken don’t fix it.

  • beast-usa

    hmm will that work re-install vuze 4.02.
    I have all the old copies. I will try and see if it works.

  • beast-usa

    yep it works ……re-install 4.02 back to the good vuze all my friends are back..acept those who upgraded. No need to un-install the new one just re-install 4.02 right on top and all is back to the good version! :)

  • beast-usa

    won’t post!!!! re-install 4.02!

  • beast-usa

    It works!

  • beast-usa

    re-install 4.02 all your my friends are back..accept those who upgraded. No need to un-install the new one just re-install 4.02 right on top and all is back to the good version! :)

  • angela-in-the-uk

    i just dont like the new version i have tried it ive looked it over and played around with it but i hate it, and thats a strong word 4 me. Is there anyway i can get the old version back please????

  • Mister .E

    I would like to say great works guys… but I’m sorry to say that this Update bites. It as stability issues on the MAC side. It hangs, can’t relaunch it unless you reboot. You can also count on it to bug out more often too. The previous release did not wreck havoc like this one is.

    I hope Vuze will release a fix soon for the MAC osx Snow Leopard.

    Cheers!

  • haterofspam

    if people want to chat then they should go on some crap like twatter, myspaz or farcebook, thank you so much for removing the friends thingy, the constant popups were doing my head in, now vuse runs much faster as a torrent program should do! keep up the great work!

  • IronM@sk

    Hate the new ‘Vuze HD Network’. Old one was way better to navigate. No way to tell which videos are HD or SD. I won’t be using it anymore.

  • freckels

    I have also problems in my mac with the new version (Download Bar for example definitely has a bug..)
    there are some more problems, as reported in the comments above

  • Brian Castellanos

    This sucks! The interface is better. What I wanted was the ability to have more than 15 results per page when browsing. Instead of making more content available you actually made LESS! There used to be channels with over 1200 pages of music videos. Now I have one stream with about 50 videos total! How do I find new content? I have to leave vuze to find it?! I understand that as friends we weren’t messaging one another, but the ability to browse a person’s published content was something that I thought was very unique…this just sucks now!!!!

  • Mark Burrows

    What a coupe de grace! Trimming the fat always makes a better cut of beef. (Screw the vegetarians) I’m amazed at the lack of clutter, and if I want it back, I know I can add it. I’m all about learning curves, trial and error, as well as knowledge comes for experience. It’s great to see more dash and less flash. I’m in your corner.

  • Jack De Feo aka MacsterX

    Vuze has become a clone of the Miro app. except that Miro’s interface is a lot better than Vuze right now. What were you thinking that made sense to you is what I want to know because what you did to reduce the bloat ware was perform unnecessary surgery and calling it less is more to disguise your malpractice. What any forward thinking individual would have was turn the fat of bloat ware into muscle. But no your much to sophisticated to use common sense and turn fat into muscle. Instead you have effectively aborted an otherwise promising application into a mere pathetic shadow of what Vuze used to be. We should sue you for committing malpractice with malfeasance for this disaster you’ve inflicted on the Vuze community.

  • MS

    The new interface of the vuze HD network is not good as it was the one before this.return the old interface pls

  • Peewubblewoo

    If it means that it’ll work faster, use less memory – good. But I dislike the new interface in the extreme. Doesn’t give me enough information about downloads/uploads. The way you looked as good old Azureus was far better.

  • Debs

    I loved having my friends and notifications and the ability to share. Vuze sucks now. If I can find my old version I will be going back to it. Also I lost things I was in the process of downloading of off friends :-(

  • Vuze rox

    Plug-ins are everything… Vuze have a lot of plug-ins, I think turn some functionality into plug-ins are a better idea, who don’t want friends (like me) will never load “friends” plug-in.
    Anyway, I prefer Vuze less bloated like the last version 4.3, like the old Azureus, it was much more popular in those days then Vuze with “friends” is today.

  • Håkon

    Crap, i want friends back :( I just started to use it and it is a great feature. Please vuze-team.

  • Keith

    I’m inspired, I love it! I always hated having to get rid of the network or wait for it to load on my older computer. Let’s face it, I come here as my first source when looking for tv episodes I’ve missed, movies, etc, just point me to an elegant breakdown please. Good Job folks!

  • Jack De Feo aka MacsterX

    I’ve been a huge fan of Vuze from the very beginning, so much so that I gladly became a paying subscriber. But during this whole year it became obvious that Vuze was on a path to do away with all the features that attracted us in the first place to get on board with Vuze. Its precisely because of this Corporate game plan that I stopped my subscription payments weeks ago. Now I know with out a doubt that I made the right decision. The folks at Vuze have shown their true colors and have become like all the other dime a dozen CORPORATE WHORES.

  • Jürgen A. Erhard

    I’m staring at the “Setup – Vuze 4.3″ window. Which sits there since more than two hours ago (I started the update, went shopping, and am back… and it still hangs).

    It doesn’t even react to the close button. So, am gonna kill it now and see what happens.

    Nice work. Not.

  • http://rockinanshu.piczo.com anshuman

    well,the latest version is undoubtedly the fastest.
    but also less interesting.
    i mean users should be allowed to watch a sample of the video the think they should download.
    this should be fixed as soon as possible(the next possible update).
    one of the main reasons why people still use utorrent is its support for multiple tracker urls.
    vuze should implement this to increase download speed.
    but the new search engine rockssss!!!!!!!!!!
    great work tech-priests
    long way to go………..

    After reading all the comments here, I’m glad I didn’t install the new version! BEASTUSA: like you said if it is not broke, don’t fix it! When the pop up showed “required update” I x’d out of it and checked out user reviews first and it didn’t sound good then! WOW – no seeds showing! music & videos now won’t work, not as many results, if people want to use friends – why not? (I never used it), feel sorry for MAC users too, then someone said no X64 installer!! (I have vista 64). AGAIN, IF IT ANIN’T BROKE DON’T FIX IT! Sorry Vuze team. I am staying with the version I have until until there’s a friendly version. And Vuze should not force the community here to use the new version either!

    Allright folks, I never ever used the friend app so i don’t bothet getting rid of it, but when it comes the the interface…Damn, I hesitate between obsolete and austere. What happened to the Movie trailers hd section?
    To say the least i really don’t know, maybe I’ll just stop using the vuse network and restrain the use to a mere download tool. I’m a bit saddened now, you did a lot of work and i can’t agree 100 percent with the new content, call me conservative…

  • Wrechid

    It looks pretty, but not convenient. Why would you set it up for only 10 search results for each page? Where did you say you got your statistics about the friends feature? Maybe everyone just took the friends feature for granite, and didn’t think to rate it… It seems that the glamour and speed of loading, due to the lack of features was good untill everyone actually started using it, lol… Also I tried creating a new torrent, and noone can download from me… Never had this problem before…
    Heres a link to download the 4.2 version.
    http://wrechid.gotdns.com/vuze_4.2.exe
    If anyone is interested in keeping Vuze the way it was, after you install it, let it update the 4.2 version. When it pops up a window to update, just close it then goto Tools menu/Options/Interface/Start, and uncheck 2 options for check version, and auto update options…

  • One

    We users want our Vuze friends’ section back.

    We want to be able to upload and share our stuff, like before.

    We also want the older variety of downloads. What we now have is infinitismal of what we had before.

  • Zod

    Upgraded to 4.3 and then immediately reinstalled back to 4.2 which has a much faster dl speed (by about 40kB/s) for some bizzare reason. Also AVG flagged parts of the newer install as a trojan, probably a false positive but unnerving nevertheless.

  • sarah

    Hello, my aging mac (2005) will not take the new vuze, will the old vuze still work with torrents? can i upgrade my computer or do i have to get a new one? x

  • CarnageHeart

    Maybe if the friend feature ACTUALLY WORKED then people would use it. It was FAR too difficult to share files with friends and the friend boost feature never worked from what I’ve seen. So if you guys were to actually fix it, then maybe people would use it.

  • sara kay

    looks great, thank you so much!

  • http://www.robonix.com Robonics

    I’m skeptical of all the comments saying “Good Job” etcetera in my opinion, the RIAA and the MPAA started comming down on Vuze and since private shares between friends can’t be monitored they are forcing these changes in order to facilitate snooping, all they have to do is share a file and then check the ip’s that conect to said file, after that they can take legal action against your ISP (worst case scenerio your ISP gives the RIAA or MPAA your name and address so that they sue you directly).

    I doubt anyone besides the record and movie industries complained about the friends options. I belive Vuze is trying to spin this in a positive light as to not scare away the unsuspecting masses that stay. In other words, Vuze wants to still make money of their advertising and they are willin to sell us out to Big Brother in order to do it.

  • Paul T.

    I like it, that this new vuze does not seem to be so heavy to the sistem.
    Miss my friends and the stuff they shared with me.
    After reading Robonics’s words, I am a bit concern about legal stuff, and that we(the users) became a target to those who think we are nothing but a pain-in-ass.
    I really hope Robonics is wrong.

    Upgrade timeframe: Vuze 4.3 is a required update due to some significant back-end infrastructure changes that Vuze will be making by the end of November. As of December 1, Friends will no longer function across all versions of Vuze, and the Vuze HD Network will no longer function in older versions of Vuze. The back-end changes are required to decrease our costs in providing a free software program to our growing community of users.

  • J MAN

    The main reason I installed Vuse to my computer was because my friends. They told me about the friend booster, and sharing features, but now I feel like I lost interest

    having trouble searching after the upgrade, im getting an error message “missing n” javascript. can anyone help???

  • tarkyn

    Please bring back the old homepage: http://www.vuze.com/content/Gateway.html
    Having only RSS feeds is totally backwards, and this means I can’t download all the other things that I could have got so easily. This may be harsh to say, but VUZE is just like iTunes now (Podcasts, RSS). I may go back to using good old BitTorrent; it has most of the same features and I’m sure it uses much less memory. I appreciate you guys making VUZE lighter etc. but PLEASE at least bring back the “old” homepage and download functionality. Pleease :)

    Hi — on a PowerPC mac — Dual 2.0 G5 with 3 gigs of memory.
    I search for “Dune” and “Enemy Mine” and it shows results but then the results screen goes BLANK and I get a pop-up Javascript error — all is says is “Missing n” — Going back to OLD version until you get this fixed… — I search for “The Thing” however and the results are fine and able to use as normal.

  • Marvin

    Please fix download speed, my baby crawls faster. To slow for a paid product.

  • Symbionic

    I got the same problem requiring an actual restart of my Mac running Snow Leopard. Vuze didn’t always crash but if that wasn’t the case something else was wrong as all U/L and D/L stopped completely with no signed of any communication left. Simply restarting the application has no effect. Seems something stays in memory after the crash but no trace of any Vuze related process could be found…
    I’m about to switch back to the previous version following the advice found here. Guess we should keep our eyes open for a version 4.4.

  • Trancelorddred

    Great work back to basics allows you to see whats should return and what should be added,bring back friends.The older Vuze HD may have slowed down things but i would like to see it in the future not when speeds get a LOT FASTER but soon real soon.

    I used Vuze because it was more than just a torrent downloader, it gave easy content, fast downloading of that content, web series, HD trailers etc, the new network is useless, you may as well take the network out altogether now, as nobody will be using it.

    as one user said, this really is an EPIC fail on your part.

    Not happy about the change in the HD Network, finding trailers is less intuitive and takes longer plus I you don’t get the thumbnail. Maybe I’m not use to the new version yet but so far I’m not excited by it.

    Before i used Azureus, then i i started using a different bittorretn client that i thought was faster and better. Now though im back to using Azureus/Vuze. Good woork, and good update!

  • VaZ

    The update has been terrible for me,
    After some downloading, it just freezes, unable to complete any downloads
    Whenever i quit, it never seems to shut down and i cant reopen afterwards
    The previous version never gave me these problems

    Keep up the good work! You’ve almost cut my download time in half!!!! I loves it!!!

  • Gokul Panchal

    nothig wrong about the speed of the software. But the new HD network interface sucks. The previews have gone only text labels. First it was the music ripped of the software. Now the stupid interface. The thin that made Vuze different was the interface. U can feel what u want to download. But now there are only text labels or album art. I fear that Vuze would turn out to kust another torrent download client loosing its uniqueness.

  • Gokul Panchal

    Think that I would have to switch to older Vuze or some other torrent client

  • Mufit

    I don’t like this castrated version of Vuze. I want video preview back :(

  • Unexus

    Guys, you’ve done great work for so long and I’ve never thanked you. So I feel a bit bad that the one time I choose to comment is with negative feedback. I’m sorry but this new front end to Vuze is a shocker. I’m sure it’s made it easier for the every day user but you’ve taken away the power of the power user. Are you trying to be Microsoft? I used to sometimes like browsing my way through the network looking at “What’s Hot” or “Most Downloaded” now I’m forced to search for something. The big problem is the search feature is a dog. It fails to return torrents that I KNOW are available. Please put the UI back the way it was – it was fabulous.

  • Jay

    I certainly hope they keep supporting the homepage portal http://www.vuze.com/content/Gateway.html on their website. If they stop that from working too, I won’t be able to use Vuze anymore on my laptop.

    I like Vuze in general using the classic interface for high capacity sharing and downloads, but on my laptop I like the glossy interface and graphics.

    Please don’t abandon that interface totally, make it an option please.

  • http://LancerKind.com Lancer Kind

    Nice job on the icons and color coding! That feature made an immediate, positive impact in how I use vuze! I don’t know if the advanced list is a new feature or a new discovery for me, but the filter rocks (and seeing all the icons still with colors that equate to the health rocks too) Now I can sort through my searches for the right episode that I need.

    Hi! First of all I wanted to say a great THANK YOU to the whole Vuze team for all your great work. I was introduced to Azureus by a friend a long time ago when I didn’t even have my own PC. However, as soon as I got one I knew which torrent client to choose. Over time you’ve improved even further and the Vuze experience I’ve had has been of superior quality.
    RAM usage is not an issue for me but I still try to use lighter applications and Vuze has finally done its homework. Overall responsiveness is easily perceptible as well not to mention dramatically decreased launch time!
    Here’s what I don’t like:
    – HD Network is reduced to such a point that I don’t have the patience to look for anything anymore and I’m a man of great patience, mind you.
    – I’ve never used the friends feature, but perhaps I would. I think it would be a great idea to reintroduce friends in the form of an optional plugin as suggested before by several users
    – I’m not sure if it’s just my PC or what but I can no longer see the dl/ul stats when I hover the cursor over the Vuze icon in the tray – I used it a lot
    Other than that, great job mates!! Keep up the great work!!!

  • fc

    You can’t please all the people all the time, and especially not for free. As long as this software continues to do everything I want it to do (downloads from a tracker, seeding with tracker notification, streaming to xbox) FOR FREE, y’all feel free to remove whatever other features are getting in the way of your weekend relaxation. The haters obviously aren’t coders.

  • Jessica Garro

    Love all the changes except for the fact that you can’t sort searches by seeds anymore! The rank icon can be useful, but not suitable for every search. Why not allowing users to customize their search criteria options in the Preferences? Vuze’s search layout was about 80% of the reason I originally used it as my main client; Now it just looks nice.

    Good job on the cleanup and getting rid of the annoying splash screen. But the lack of a customizable search and making this “upgrade” required is making me research other clients to use.

Totalmente de acuerdo con Robonics y con Jabraan “THE NEW VERSION OF VUZE, SUCKSSSSSS!!!!

  • seedo1 – Davide

    Congratulations great features you have put on.
    I like the simplicity and easy handling it became my favourite search engine for music, videos, software, games etc.
    What Vuze make special to me was that I could modify the specific downloads to my liking for example: downloading torrent with unwanted files or components to uncheckand they won’t be downloaded, also my favourite feature is and now unfortunately was ” friends ” it was quite handy to exchange bigger files with each other and even that the best part is or was friends from the States link me up with their news/latest music/movies which we in Europe would know about them that counts the same way for my friends in the States…otherwise I have to download something which I don’t know and maybe don’t like.
    unfortunately I am limited with the amount of gigabytes per month of downloads.
    I depend on the taste/choice of my friends in the States,
    ( I don’t use Facebook or twitter – you can call me old-fashioned although I’m in the middle of my 20s-ish ).

    I assume, that one of the reason why nobody uses the friend/boost feature could be, that most of the users think that, this feature is just to chat with each other and don’t understand what the purposes also has …

    How about a tutorial which explains the use of the featurefor the users and newcomers?!
    if it is possible I would really like that feature back,(please!!!) thank you in advance.

    PS: I’ve also noticed by using Vuze search engine that the results are being found by the most popular search engines which work with Vuze, and no results/hits with Vuze (less hits to choose from it).

    I have only just joined vuse, and cant get a bloody thing to work, everytime I try a message comes up to say I am using the old version and need to download the new one, couple of points.
    1. I only down loaded the bloody thing.
    2. I have down loaded the one you told me to six times now and still get told it the old one, what is the score with this.

    I don’t like the new version – minimal categories, the seach does not yield anything that catches my interest, I can’t find what I have published previously, I have a heap of new clips ready to publish but I can’t publish any more. I used the friends feature. With the old version I would direct people to Vuze to see my content in high quality, as well as encourage them to explore. Vuze was way better than YouTube and other video portals.
    I will not be doing that with the new version. Vuze has taken a major step backwards to being no more attractive than any other torrent client

    OK GUYS…WHAT I’VE DONE IS JUST A SMALL COMPILATION OF THE THOUSANDS OF USERS WHOSE BELIVES JUST LIKE ME THAT YOU HAVE DONE THE MOST INCREDIBLE MISTAKE WITH SOMETHING THAT WAS AMAZING. I DISCOVERED AZUREUS YEARS AGO AND I WAS CAPTIVATED BY ITS INCREDIBLE POTENTIAL TO GIVE US HD CONTENT AND TONS OF NEW OPTIONS WITH THE “WHATS HOT FEATURE”…BUT NOW ALL OF THAT IS GONE…

    WHERE ARE ALL OF THOSE MUSIC VIDEOS
    WHERE IS THE HD CONTENT
    WHERE IS THE PUBLISH OPTION
    WHERE WHERE IS THE FRIENDS SECTION
    WHERE IS THE “WHATS HOT”
    WHERE ARE ALL THE CHANNELS
    WHERE IS THE PREVIEW OPTION

    WHERE THE HELL IS EVERYTHING!!!!

    IF YOU THINK BY REMOVING THIS FROM VUZE WOULD BE BETTER, YOU WERE INCREDIBLY WRONG.

    PEOPLE LIKE ME GOT VUZE BECAUSE OF ITS CONTENT, OTHER WISE, THERE ARE BUNCHES OF DOWNLOADERS OUT THERE, SO THE ONLY THING THAT WASN´T CARE OF WAS HARD DISC SAPACE.

    STARTING WITH THE NAME “VUZE HD PLATAFORM” YOU KNOW THAT HERE YOU ARE GONNA FIND LOTS OF BITES, SO THE ONLY THING YOU ARE PROMOVING IS GETTIN AWAY ALL THE USERS YOU EARNED WITH THE YEARS. THERE IS NO WAY TO COMPARE VUZE WITH FACEBOOK OR TWITER CUZ ARE FOR A TOTALLY DIFFERENT PROUPOSE.

    I really liked the old Vuze. I even liked the default HD Network page since it had things that caught my interest. The new one is just boring. More important, the search pages seem like there are less hits.
    – Is there anyway to uninstall this update? If not, I’ll have to uninstall and try to clean install the older version. However, I fear it may automatically update to this version again.
    – Please give us a choice to which version we want to use.

    Thorngriff on November 15th, 2009

    Is this change a result of the upcoming purchase of vuze by a microsoft owned company?
    Clearly you have not listened to all us users as the friends share option was used and not bottom of our list of things we wanted to keep. Also the new layout sucks, it looks very basic (very microsoft).Very disappointed in that everything had to change to get a smaller footprint.

    petrock on November 12th, 2009

    Please dont take out friends! its the best part! Having a big network of friends is awsome when they can share files with you; you get movies and music that you normaly wouldnt download.

    Hades on November 15th, 2009

    Wow, now this was childish… After i heve read all the thread, how come your poll was saying that Friends Feature needs to be KILLED?! I mean, it could be hidden or something, but ERASED?? Of course its obvious everyone was using Vuze because of this marvelous feature, this and the OLD HD NETWORK or else we would be using utorrent, or some stupid browser plugin to download torrents.

    Well this needs to be thinked, when i red the setence “With this release, we focused more time on removing features than adding features” i had a good impression, but removing the only different parts of the program it will only make vuze like other clients! and most suck!! And dont come and say its faster, a Pentium IV runs vuze smoothly, and NO, it will not SPEED your bandwith/downloads, and thats another kind of publicity that i think that must be abolished.

    zerogravity3000 on November 15th, 2009

    I can’t believe i participated in the survey and this was the result ! !

    With exception of the automatic toolbar install (which was easily uninstalled by following instructions) neither myself or any of my friends who used VUZE 4.2.0.8 regularly had any issues.

    While VUZE 4.3 may be leaner and faster, the interface is so stripped down in comparison to this; http://www.vuze.com/content/Gateway.html
    that it is not even worth the effort to learn to navigate.

    I used the VUZE client as a way to preview, browse and share new content, but based on the direction the 4.3 has taken, it is clear that VUZE has moved away everything that set it apart from all the other clients.

    So for now i am uninstalling VUZE from all my computers and looking for a new client for this purpose.

    Anyone know of an alternative to vuze?

    Jack De Feo aka MacsterX on November 16th, 2009

    Vuze has become a clone of the Miro app. except that Miro’s interface is a lot better than Vuze right now. What were you thinking that made sense to you is what I want to know because what you did to reduce the bloat ware was perform unnecessary surgery and calling it less is more to disguise your malpractice. What any forward thinking individual would have was turn the fat of bloat ware into muscle. But no your much to sophisticated to use common sense and turn fat into muscle. Instead you have effectively aborted an otherwise promising application into a mere pathetic shadow of what Vuze used to be. We should sue you for committing malpractice with malfeasance for this disaster you’ve inflicted on the Vuze community.

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    Britt on November 13th, 2009

    You’ve got it all wrong people! Networking in Facebook and Twitter has not the possibility of sharing files and the peace of mind of these being encoded. Removing the Friends function is the biggest mistake you could have possibly made. All the rest is fine, but if I just want a sharing programme, it’s just the same to have a simple mµtorrent.

    beast-usa on November 15th, 2009

    Friends gone hmmmm I liked that feature. Less load??? it’s 2009 most people have a gig or more of memory. Faster? I really don’t see any speed difference? It uses about 50 to 60 less megs of ram….still 3 to 8% of all 4 cores on the cpu? Did you guys get in trouble with the friends sharing?
    Looks the same, same speed, less use. I do thank you for giving such a great service for free! But why the brutal upgrade? If it’s not broken don’t fix it.

    Dave on November 13th, 2009

    This ‘new’ version is horrible. I can’t find good music videos anymore. And, the movie I downloaded doesn’t work.

    Is there a way to go back to the last version?

    WTF ??? I am really dissapointed about not having friends on VUze anymore! Maybe it was a bit slower but i was receiving notifications from friends and etc. This new version has Friends R.I.P and it really sucks.. I am thinking of uninstalling Vuze or reinstalling to the previous version. This was a bad move. When there are no friends, why are there still the notifications? cant get that either

    this version sucks I want to get back to the previous one. seriously

    Britt on November 13th, 2009

    No more friends function means no more notifications and definetly not fun anymore. I’ll keep the old version till you force me to update and maybe then, I won’t get it anymore. PS it is really sad after amost two years.

    This ‘new’ version is horrible. I can’t find good music videos anymore. And, the movie I downloaded doesn’t work.

    Is there a way to go back to the last version?

    bob on November 14th, 2009

    the new hd network is severely crippled. i like the idea of reducing bloat but looks like the hd network has been reduced to the point of uselessness.

    the hd network should seek to replace the television. from adult related stuff, to comedy, to action, etc, it should be a platform for those major and minor to distribute content and vuze make a share of income.

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    e_sail on November 15th, 2009

    Please put again the screenshot of Music Videos, so i like see that i’m downloading and don’t waste time erasing videos that i don’t like.

    Wall.worm on November 15th, 2009

    Please, help me get the old vuze back. I really loved it. If there is a way to get it back, please tell me. :)

    Drasticc on November 15th, 2009

    This blows, no share option, no friends(where I got all my good stuff), this is just a let down. I would like to reload the older version, but I know it will just update itself. Bring it back Vuze!

    Jack De Feo aka MacsterX on November 16th, 2009

    I’ve been a huge fan of Vuze from the very beginning, so much so that I gladly became a paying subscriber. But during this whole year it became obvious that Vuze was on a path to do away with all the features that attracted us in the first place to get on board with Vuze. Its precisely because of this Corporate game plan that I stopped my subscription payments weeks ago. Now I know with out a doubt that I made the right decision. The folks at Vuze have shown their true colors and have become like all the other dime a dozen CORPORATE WHORES.

    Wall.worm on November 15th, 2009

    Really, i´m not joking, its really messed up and now i can´t find anything!!! Please!! The old vuze back.

    Jorge on November 15th, 2009

    my first impression is that you are now converted into a commodity.
    Can be lighter or faster but your advantage is gone.

    get back please.

    bree on November 15th, 2009

    alright now im pissed i cant listen to any of the music that i downloaded, is there anyway to get the old version back??

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    IronM@sk on November 16th, 2009

    Hate the new ‘Vuze HD Network’. Old one was way better to navigate. No way to tell which videos are HD or SD. I won’t be using it anymore.

    Brian Castellanos on November 16th, 2009

    This sucks! The interface is better. What I wanted was the ability to have more than 15 results per page when browsing. Instead of making more content available you actually made LESS! There used to be channels with over 1200 pages of music videos. Now I have one stream with about 50 videos total! How do I find new content? I have to leave vuze to find it?! I understand that as friends we weren’t messaging one another, but the ability to browse a person’s published content was something that I thought was very unique…this just sucks now!!!!

    Peewubblewoo on November 16th, 2009

    If it means that it’ll work faster, use less memory – good. But I dislike the new interface in the extreme. Doesn’t give me enough information about downloads/uploads. The way you looked as good old Azureus was far better.

    Håkon on November 16th, 2009

    Crap, i want friends back :( I just started to use it and it is a great feature. Please vuze-team.

    anshuman on November 16th, 2009

    vuze 4.3 suckssssssssssssssssssss

    rocsann2000 on November 16th, 2009

    After reading all the comments here, I’m glad I didn’t install the new version! BEASTUSA: like you said if it is not broke, don’t fix it! When the pop up showed “required update” I x’d out of it and checked out user reviews first and it didn’t sound good then! WOW – no seeds showing! music & videos now won’t work, not as many results, if people want to use friends – why not? (I never used it), feel sorry for MAC users too, then someone said no X64 installer!! (I have vista 64). AGAIN, IF IT ANIN’T BROKE DON’T FIX IT! Sorry Vuze team. I am staying with the version I have until until there’s a friendly version. And Vuze should not force the community here to use the new version either!

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    Deathstroke on November 16th, 2009

    Allright folks, I never ever used the friend app so i don’t bothet getting rid of it, but when it comes the the interface…Damn, I hesitate between obsolete and austere. What happened to the Movie trailers hd section?
    To say the least i really don’t know, maybe I’ll just stop using the vuse network and restrain the use to a mere download tool.

    Tinmy on November 16th, 2009

    This version of vuze is unstable and rubbish. Looks like I’m going to to back to uTorrent. What a crock of shit.

    Jammin2it on November 16th, 2009

    I have to agree with everybody else that the new version sucks!! No sign in and the friends feature are gone. Plus, no music video’s. I too wish I had the old version back or at least allow us to customize our home page with the features we liked the most from the old version.

    One on November 17th, 2009

    We users want our Vuze friends’ section back.

    We want to be able to upload and share our stuff, like before.

    We also want the older variety of downloads. What we now have is infinitismal of what we had before.

    ricardo peres on November 17th, 2009

    comentario que debe de tener en cuanta vuze antes que tuvieran la nueva version a esta hora veia conectados a mas de 1,400,000 y ahora solo pasan del millon a estos pasos muy pronto solo seran cadaveres si o no espero que reconsideren y vuelvan a ser el programa favorito de tanta gente
    att: habran los ojos pendejos

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    PocketBunny on November 18th, 2009

    How do I downgrade? I hate this new version

    m on November 18th, 2009

    If you replace HD network with that ,,ghost of HD network,, I will uninstall vuze from my computer.I will looking for alternative.soory!

    J MAN on November 18th, 2009

    The main reason I installed Vuse to my computer was because my friends. They told me about the friend booster, and sharing features, but now I feel like I lost interest

    tarkyn on November 19th, 2009

    Please bring back the old homepage: http://www.vuze.com/content/Gateway.html
    Having only RSS feeds is totally backwards, and this means I can’t download all the other things that I could have got so easily. This may be harsh to say, but VUZE is just like iTunes now (Podcasts, RSS). I may go back to using good old BitTorrent; it has most of the same features and I’m sure it uses much less memory.

    smart9682 on November 19th, 2009

    I used Vuze because it was more than just a torrent downloader, it gave easy content, fast downloading of that content, web series, HD trailers etc, the new network is useless, you may as well take the network out altogether now, as nobody will be using it.

    as one user said, this really is an EPIC fail on your part.

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    Gokul Panchal on November 20th, 2009

    nothig wrong about the speed of the software. But the new HD network interface sucks. The previews have gone only text labels. First it was the music ripped of the software. Now the stupid interface. The thin that made Vuze different was the interface. U can feel what u want to download. But now there are only text labels or album art. I fear that Vuze would turn out to kust another torrent download client loosing its uniqueness.

    Unexus on November 20th, 2009

    Guys, you’ve done great work for so long and I’ve never thanked you. So I feel a bit bad that the one time I choose to comment is with negative feedback. I’m sorry but this new front end to Vuze is a shocker. I’m sure it’s made it easier for the every day user but you’ve taken away the power of the power user. Are you trying to be Microsoft? I used to sometimes like browsing my way through the network looking at “What’s Hot” or “Most Downloaded” now I’m forced to search for something. The big problem is the search feature is a dog. It fails to return torrents that I KNOW are available. Please put the UI back the way it was – it was fabulous.

    Miguel on November 21st, 2009

    Whaaaaatttt hapenned to VUZE????? I don’t like to download mp4 instead of MKV!! This version looks like podcasts do!! Give us the chance to choose de podcast look and feel with MP4 or the glorious version before this one with MKV!!! To Big visions Dumb decisions!!! That’s too bad! =(

    Ace on November 24th, 2009

    Where are all the documentaries? I spend a lot of time watching all kind of old clips from the Network. I’d like to see them coming back.

    Trev on November 25th, 2009

    Bring back the old the downloads speed has been killed literally killed

  • JOHN >>> THE NEW VERSION IS HORRIBLE!!!!

    Paulo Pinto on November 25th, 2009

    Amigos do vuze a versão anterior da 4.3 era bem melhor,porque antes eu via o que baixar era pelas imagem da pagina inicial e agora nao to conseguindo ver mais.Como moro no BRASIL e nao falo em outra lingua agora ficou difícil porque o que eu mais gostava era de baixar os videos de HD porque no BRAISL agora que está implantando a HDTV

    alucard on November 25th, 2009

    por favor me podrian decir como descargar los videos en este nuevo vuze nomas no encuentro donde por favor diganme como por favor, estaba mas practico el otro vuze este es una proqueria no le entiendo

    jaken on November 25th, 2009

    Site change the interface where the music files and movies page is now miserable Please go back to previous

    OLAV ROBEN on November 26th, 2009

    FRIEND IN FACE BOOK ARE NOT THE SAME AS HERE ON THIS SITE

    PEOPLE SHARED THEIR INTREST ON MOVIES AND FILMS.
    I DID NOT USE IT MYSELF THAT MUCH,BUT I DON’T LIKE I LOST SOME CONTACTS WITH PEOPLE YOU BLOCKED FOR ME AND ALL THE OTHERS

    hammer68 on November 26th, 2009

    No entiendo en nada el nuevo diseño, por que ya no aparezco loggeado cuando inicio sesion ? y lo que es peor aun, no puedo ver los previews, el tamaño, y duracion del archivo a menos que lo descargue. Tampoco me da la opcion de rastrear hacia adelante o hacia atras los videos que ya haya descargado y los que no, donde quedo la seccion de videos “hot comunity”? y la seccion de videos HD? que lastima, me gustaba bastante este bit torrent!!! Totalmente de acuerdo con Robonics y con Jabraan “THE NEW VERSION OF VUZE, SUCKSSSSSS!!!!

  • JOHN >>>PLEASE LISTEN US

    I HOPE THIS REALLY HELPS AND YOU CAN LISTEN TO US

  • Jose

    lo siento prefiero pagar donaciones antes de ver la red Vuze de esta manera, estoy dispuesto a pagar 15 Euros al year para que vuelva a ser como antes, quien se apuntada.
    all together we can change.

    I like more the last vuze, this don’t like me, change please, return.

  • Arnott Clark

    I can’t retain the update , so everytime I turn Vuze off, and turn it on again , I get the ” oh no you have a version that is no longer supported . The update does not stay . I have a Mac OS 10.5.8 . Is there some kind of fix for this ?

  • Jack De Feo aka MacsterX

    I’VE BEEN USING VUZE FROM DAY ONE AND BY OBSERVING HOW THIS BLOG IS BEING MANIPULATED BY VUZE TO MANAGE THE COMMENTS IN FAVOR OF THE NEW VERSION, I URGE ALL OF YOU TO NOT SUPPORT VUZE IN ANY WAY WHAT SO EVER. THEY OBVIOUSLY BELIEVE YOUR TO IGNORANT TO NOTICE HOW BIASED THEY ARE BY ALLOWING THE REPEATED RANTS FROM A DISGRUNTLED USER TO OVER SHADOW ANY SERIOUS RECONSIDERATION ON THE PART OF VUZE TO ADDRESS ALL REASONABLE ARGUMENTS IN FAVOR OF RESTORING THE FRIENDS FEATURE AND ENABLING PUBLISHING ONCE AGAIN. THIS TYPE OF CONDUCT BY VUZE IS DEVOID OF ANY HONESTY ON THEIR PART IN ADDRESSING THE CONCERNS AND ISSUES THE USERS OF VUZE CARE ABOUT OVER THE TRANSITION TO THE NEW LEANER AND MEANER STRIPPED DOWN VERSION OF VUZE. IF VUZE CONTINUES TO TURN A DEAF EAR BY PRETENDING TO CARE ABOUT THE VUZE COMMUNITY WHEN IN ALL ACTUALITY THEY COULD CARE LESS. I SUGGEST YOU CONSIDER MAKING SURE VUZE NEVER SEES ANOTHER $$$ FROM ANY OF YOU AGAIN. I DISCONTINUED MY $$$ SUBSCRIPTION BECAUSE OF THE METHOD VUZE CHOSE TO FORCE US INTO ACCEPTING THE NEW AND IMPROVED SKELETAL VERSION OF VUZE.
    WAKE UP AND LISTEN VUZE!!!

  • Annoyed with Vuse

    New version is horrible no access to music videos… Vuse is now just for use as a Bit torrent downloader… Very dissapointed!!

  • lalakis

    deleted for ever

  • Puneet Sharma

    Sorry guys but if you don’t get HD MUSIC VIDEOS back then i wont need dis coz for my torrent needs utorrent does the job. I dont know how cud u just remove the best feature. PATHETIC its not an update but downgrade.

  • g

    I find it mega slow, is there something I have done wrong, The old version was so much better

  • Ya-Ya

    I liked the old version way better. There is a separate window on the top that is annoying. I’m having trouble with this version now.

  • KATHY J DOUGHERTY

    I want to contribute to the Vuze site – have an American credit card but living in Germany. In the payment/Paypal window it comes up automatically to be Euros and I need to pay in dollars (or I get charged extra for the conversion, which seems a waste of money), but cannot seem to change the currency designation. Any solution? Kathy

  • Alejandra

    I’ve got a problem! I try and try of downloading the new version of Vuze, but I can’t. What can I do?

  • cK

    now i never open vuze till it resume its Uploading……..features( also friends) so its suck now….bye bye vuze

  • tjc360

    My download speeds suck, its taking me 5 (or more) days to download 1 movie that would have taken me 1-2 days.

  • tjc360

    From reading the comments, its clear that 90% of us are unhappy with the new Vuze.

    Where do we go from here, first Demonoid, now this?

  • bong972

    yeah, the new version really sucks i can’t even search for torrents with the new version… when i search for torrents it just says LOADING… well, my search has been loading for two hours and nothings is happening… anybody know another client i can use…

    this one sucks

  • tdanboy

    Not going to complain about freeware that has been, at least previously easy to use and effective. I am concerned about my inability to click on a file to verify its authenticity and view comments by other users … this could very well be due to my own inept UI config skills too.

  • Mark

    PLEASE give back the old interface its really hard to find stuff i really wanna see its hard to navigate i loved the old interface

  • Mark

    you took out what i loved about vuse now i might end up using bit comet or u torrent , when doing changes like this please just put something up that say “test out or new interface etc” while ppl who love the old interface can enjoy it also if you guys like the new interface allow users to toggle interface

  • lhynn

    new version sucks!!!!used to find a lot of torrent for movies but now can’t find any…its harder to navigate…can u please bring back d older version…latest version should be more useful…but this one sucks…

  • ricardo peres

    menos de un millon solo 900 mil conectados a ese paso pronto no tendremos vuze despierten y pongan el vuze viejo o se quedaran sin clientes

  • Alia

    I like the new version especially the search, being able to search via so many different torrents website..
    I don’t know for you but for me it’s free, they listened to what we woted for and made it easier to download stuff which is, let’s be fair, the 1st reason why all of us got vuze
    You can download whatever you want and then if you like it you can easily find where to buy it
    Point is:
    – Performance has improved
    – It’s still free
    – Changes follow exactly what I voted for (better to please the majority than the minority, well sorry for unhappy people but that’s how life works and how you run a sucessful business)

    So for people that wanna boycott and keep criticising…it’s free, if you don’t like it, get rid of it ???

    I’m saying this and I’m sure the first group of people to allow your comment and that would say to me “no, they have the right to complain” is the Vuze team

  • leonard

    is it me or vuze have gotten slower. my download speed is 4.8 kb compared to the older vuze which is 67

  • Glory

    this new version is weird .. how come i cant find shows anymore? i cant find what im looking for please bring back the old vuse or ill just look for something else to use and uninstall this as i have few hours ago i thought my vuse got stuck or something!!

  • M.

    Props! Thank you for not following in the footsteps of EVERY other product out there (e.g. Zonealarm, Office Suite, Firefox, etc).

    You have earned my loyalty!

  • beast-usa

    less is more? hmmm Less is Less, How are people thinking it’s faster?

    First system
    QX9650@4000 quad core, 8gigs (8192 megs for those that think it’s faster) EVO One DDR2-800@940, HD2900XT 512bit, 3.7tb’s seagate sata II. Multi-boot Vista x64, Win7 x64, OSX snow leopard x64, Ubuntu x64.

    On boot all but vista 7200-7270 megs free memory.
    all 4 cores 0

    OK, I use the same three files on both. Downloaded then up-loaded. Two at 350 megs one at 2.14 gigs.
    All settings on max up and down

    4.2
    Memory use 420-440 megs of memory.
    CPU’s all 4 cores 1-2% on two cores.
    Total down speed on all three file 2.7 mb/s
    Total up speed on all three files 200-250 kb/s

    4.3.0.4
    Memory use 420-460 megs of memory.
    CPU’s all 4 cores 1-2% on two cores.
    Total down speed on all three file 800 kb/s (faster?)
    Total up speed on all three files 200-250 kb/s

    Yes I know speeds can change, by tracker, people seeding …BUT not that much!

    So less IS LESS
    It’s slower, still easy to use, but it’s just like any other torrent program now. JUST SLOWER

    Back to 4.2 again :(

  • sergio

    nao gostei desta versao a do anterior era mais divertido tinha amigos de todo o mundo e compartilhava cenas e conhecia pessoas diferentes espero que muden isto o mais rapido que possivel

  • Stavros!

    This new version really sucks! The home page almost never

    ha ha i really did like the old version and i’am still using it becuase the new version relies on a server some where to run the most basic features i bet, but if its faster ill still use it thank you vuze

  • jhonny knoxvill

    maby vuze should have two types the old one and a new one so ever one will be happy

  • Xeno

    Gr8 job at killing vuze guys. Vuze was popular bec of it own network of torrents and now its gone, without it its just another utorrent or bitcomet. I never cared for its memory print as long is it brought me those awesome HD music videos, if i wanted something light i would just use utorrent (which is still way better in UI, and speed imo). Now that the old vuze network is gone its goodbye vuze for good!!!

    lots of content

    its Fail!

    Not a good move Vuze.. Can’t even find a movie i downloaded last week…

  • sakamu

    Less is Better.

  • Nottoo Happy

    YOU RUINED IT!
    Your update did not get you any new users and has just lost you yet ANOTHER previously overwhelmingly happy user. There are no results if you are looking for a movie. You took me and my friends’ favorite software and turned it into another thing to clutter our recycle bin. I’m glad you made it smaller size, maybe it will delete faster.
    I’ll check back in a couple years to see if you got smart or not.

  • michael

    You guys have got it so wrong. The reason we liked vuze over other clients was it’s social networking=friends and easily available content=hd network. If we were after a lightweight bit torrent client we wouldn’t have chosen vuze in the first place,

  • greg

    i love that i have not found a movie that i have not wanted so far.you guys rock!

    want friends back

    Where has the HD Music videos gone from search results?

    And why can’t we browse Music Videos like before?

    These were pretty much 95% of the reason I used(…) Vuze…

    Sorry, but you ruined it.

  • ricardo peres

    si realmente leyeran y evaluaran lo que escribimos aqui ya estuviera vuze funcionando como antes y quizas mejor pero lo que pasa que decean escuchar bonitos comentarios cuando lo que nos dan ahora es una “mierda” digo eso una mierda que no vale ya nada lo que ofrecen y no dejan de suer unos hijos de puta vendidos ok he dicho

  • jim

    Not happy…Published a feature film on here and it hasn’t gotten one view since the update because it can’t be found in the search anymore. What’s the point of being just another torrent downloader? Bah. Vuze used to be something special.

    Make a LITE version if you have to, but give us the CHOICE.

  • Ben D.

    I am really happy for the ‘downgrade’, I didn’t use any of the non-standard torrent features in the last big release. It is unfortunate a lot of people are unhappy, perhaps plug-ins should be extended, or two separate builds. I am a gracious user of your application however and appreciate your efforts.

  • AX3LRX8

    somebody can tell me how i can create account in vuze???

  • MansooR

    VuZe iz best but the current changes is complicated its just degrading the vuze :( we want old setup please, i dont wana switch to other software.

  • purcell

    Very bad, the old was better.

  • Dirty Red

    I hate this version. I have to reinstall it every time I use it. I have followed the upgrade instructions to the letter and the upgrade seems to work great and the new features are pretty cool. However, as soon as I close the program and re-open it, it’s back to the previous version. This blows and I’m tired of it.

  • Jim West

    How do I play the video? I cannot play an .rar file

  • Terry niland

    Since downloading the new faster vuze I have only been able to D/load one album only kickass is showing d/load buttons Btjunkie/mininova/and vuze have nothingany sugestions?

  • Christopher

    This versions SUCKS! And now, Vuse won’t let you go back to the older version.

    I still have the older version, but all the good stuff is gone, i.e., music videos’, films, Tv shows etc.

    HELP!!!

  • JOHN >>>PLEASE LISTEN US

    Maldita Seaaa!!!!

    Todo mundo esta en disgusto con lo que le hicieron a Vuze. Pero lo peor del caso es que no hacen nada!!!

    Los pocos comentarios de gente que no estan en desacuerdo con esta actualización son aquellos que apenas acaban de conocer el software y no tienen idea de lo bueno que solía ser…

    EN verdad…no quiero dejar de usar Vuze, pero si ya no encuentro videos musicales en HD, series, películas, contenido interesante y todas esas cosas geniales que tenía, ya no le veo el caso a seguirlo usando….

    Una verdadera lástima que por mas que les mostramos nuestro descontento y repudio por esta versión, no hagan absolutamente NADA…

    BRING BACK THE OLD VUZE!!!!!!!!!!

    What’s going on guys, I have not had any new torrents to search for over a week now.That is when using EZTV, HDTV and MININOVA NES TV

  • RexRed

    Not much about the new Vuze I like… I have lost my profile, my friends, my seeds, my fans and that is supposed to be incentive for me to start paying for Vuze now that you have the option fixed to donate? Most of the content you have now is offered elsewhere on the net. Revision 3, Nasa etc… Please bring the old Vuze back. The only people who like Vuze now are people with junk computers and people who did not use Vuze enough to notice that the content is now nearly non existent. You are only fooling yourselves, the emperor now has no clothes! I feel guilty leaving a bad review of your changes because Vuze has been very good to me. I just really don’t see what Vuze has to offer me anymore. I can’t even figure out how to publish anything . I have new content to publish and I have just given up on Vuze for the time being. I keep checking back to see if you have reversed your update and still nothing. This is like a bad dream and it is only getting worse. You killed the public option for a bunch of already oiled corporate content. I was going to donate to Vuze even though I am dirt poor. So Vuze don’t feel bad if you even made 20 dollars in the last five years on your content just consider that is more than I have made and my content was donated to your site and took me many grueling hours out of my life to edit. You just hurt the little guy and are kowtowing to content that your client base has already seen elsewhere. I have lost a thousand friends but it seems you have lost millions of users and the people you hurt the most were the people that the millions of viewers were coming to see. With down-loadable content and bit torrent Vuze used to be better than youtube. In one update you rendered Vuze obsolete (at least to me). All someone has to do is emulate what you used to offer with open source and you have left yourself open to eventually end up out in the rain like the other lack luster bit torrent clients. People came to Vuze for the networking and down-loadable content not because you were a bit torrent client. If anything you should have expanded the networking too so it was easier to add friends and send mass comments and you would have hooked your client base now you have lost the hook, line and Vuze is sinking fast. If you are planning on bring back friends and your old content please announce that to your client base before they all just desert ship. I can’t figure out the RSS feed thing either. I am sure there is a way to exploit that feature but it is above my head as it is. I want to thank Vuze for being so good to me while it lasted. I don’t want to seem ungrateful. I just want Vuze back the way it was. I might mention that even though friends may have scored dead last it was an invisible engine that powered the user trends and cult content. When making cookie batter, because baking power scores last in the ingredient list should it then be omitted from the recipe to cut costs?

    hey guys all i can say is much better improvement no errors comp works faster than old ver and looks and feels easyr to use great job tnks

  • T.D.B.

    The old version was better

  • beast-usa

    Is the old vuze coming back or not? This one is not any faster. Or should we just go to Utorrent, bittorrent or any other run of the mill client? They all use less and offer what you now offer less. What type of system does someone have that would make this version faster? A Dell Intel PII,128 megs ram, 40 gig hard drive? Or do you guys just post those “it’s faster” posts? This version is a joke!

    Una vez mas ha sucedido, una pandilla de mamelucos desgraciados sucumbe a los designios de los poderosos, el encanto y las características antiguas de vuze hacían de él un programa muy bueno, limpio y rápido, ahora estamos con las mismas “mierditas” que los políticamente correctos quieren, todo muy bonito, muchas palabritas, etc… pero sin nada ¡¡¡ Además es que son imbéciles, porque con este cambio han firmado su propia sentencia informática de muerte, quieren navegar en dos aguas y eso no se puede… es la decisión del cobarde, del imbécil “si señor a todo”, mejor que se busquen otro trabajo, porque lo que van a durar haciendo Vuze es nada ¡¡¡ En unos pocos meses desaparecerán como tantos otros cretinos besaculos, ADIOS VUZE, OTRA BUENA IDEA ECHADA AL CUBO DE LA BASURA, Y ELLOS TAN FELICES EN SU MUNDO, CREYENDO QUE VAN A SEGUIR, POBRES IDIOTAS ¡¡¡

    Fantastic! Its never possible to please everyone, but you all do great work anyhow. For the ones that want all the extras, maybe making a separate version for them would be an idea, but is it worth the trouble? I myself love the new speed. Thanks to every one involved, and keep up the awesome work.

    On a separate note: Why do so many people feel the need to trash talk and curse so much to get there point across? Don’t you know a others may not take u as seriously that way? Just a thought. And don’t bother “retaliating”. I wont be back here to see what you’ll say.

  • Frank

    It looks good but as a newbie I find it impossible to setup properly e.g. selecting the right port, portforwarding, NAT problems and all of the jargon that goes with torrents etc. It would be great if it was more user-friendly at this level. Have tried the forum but am still at square one in terms of setup. I appreciate the work you put into it and the fact that it’s free – thank you.

  • Mitch

    Vuse was great before the most recent update. Now that I’ve updated to Vuse 4.3.0.4, I really wish I knew why my download speed has crawled to around 100bps (NOT kbps). I can surf the web with blinding speed, but it takes HOURS to download a 10MB file in Vuse. I’ve tried just about everything I could short of reformatting my hard drive and installing a new system, but I certainly shouldn’t have to go to those extremes (nor will I).

    Any advice that would keep me as a Vuser would be greatly appreciated; otherwise, it’s back to (ugh) LimeWire. FYI, I’m running Vuse 4.3.0.4 using Mac OS 10.5.8 on a 2.6GHz MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM.

    Can anyone help?

    PLEASE?

    Thanks!

  • User

    Damn, I finally gave in and let it update, expecting a usual kind of update. I wasn’t expecting such a big change, it feels like I’m being forced to get all this library and search crap that came in that I have no interest in. I just want a good, feature-filled, open source bittorrent client. I don’t want anything else. The new version adds more clicks to switch between statistics and the main downloading/uploading view. Complete items are now “unwatched”? What’s that all about? If I upload and am seeding something, that means it’s unwatched? I don’t want a media manager, I just want a BT client.

  • Harolen

    Please dont take out friends! its the best part! Having a big network of friends is awsome when they can share files with you; you get movies and music that you normaly wouldnt download.

  • rohit

    how to update vuze. plz mail me d details

  • C_March

    After reading of several comments posted here, it is obvious that there are two kinds of people who use Vuze. People who embraced its full potential as it was in the previous update, and people like me who just use it to download torrents. I can feel people’s pain who had gotten into this whole program with a lot of their work and time, and it sucks that it has all been taken away from them. I feel the obvious solution here is to release a standard version, like it was before, and release a lite version. For my part i am quite happy with this new update, startup is much faster and the program runs quite smoothly.

  • Jayce Haliwell

    I’m fairly upset about removal of the friends feature, While there are a myriad of ways to send links to torrents to friends, nothing is simpler than being able to just click something I’m currently downloading in Vuze, and share that with someone for one click downloading. Using another social network or email for sharing these files is not efficient and a deterrent. If there was a problem with the friends feature, it was that it wasn’t comprehensive enough, not that it wasn’t useful or needed.

  • Koraima

    this is the best program i am glad i find it at time

  • ljev

  • Kwaut_Lizard

    Amazing that judging by the comments on here, most users are just plug-n-play morons. The loss of Vuze’s function keys has relegated it to the crap pile, friends, speedboost, rss feeds, … were all functions that set Vuze apart. Goodbye Vuze and Hello uTorrent where I can vastly reduce my RAM useage and get the same functionality.

    Have you guys noticed all the COMPLAINTS about something we get for FREE? How spoiled are we?

I miss the original one myself, anyone remember it? But like any other web site, people always think they are improving something with newer ‘versions’. My ISP changed our e-mail, the ‘look’ and I still hate it. I love and appreciate my Vuze no matter. Its what’s inside, the intention. Peace

  • sosas

    I like Vuze but this new version gives a lot of troubles on my mac. Tekst disappering resulting in a blank page, the blue ‘new’ status of subscriptions not working, scrolling acting strang… I’m afraid I downloaded to soon had had better wait for a updated version.

  • Willy the Wonka, Wizard of Oz

    I have Vuze installed on two different machines. Same OS revision level, same java, same Vuze version.

    On one machine search and results works fine. On the other search results are randomly buggy, making it so that the download page doesn’t open when you click on a result. If you keep resorting the results, eventually you can click on the result and it will open the download window.

    This behavior is very strange and incovenient. I done an uninstall/reinstall with no effect.

    Suggestions are appreciated.

  • S.Anand

    Downloading in Vuze is very slow but my broadband connection is fast please help me in this regard

    Apparently the new version has problems on some x64 because of incompatible SWT libs.

    “Browser check failed with: Cannot load 32-bit SWT libraries on 64-bit JVM”

    is what I get..

    Using old version till I figured out how to resolve this. Since Vuze is GPL2’ed where can I find the source code? The tar.bz2 package only contains compiled classes…

    (or did we forget part 2 of the GPL license: b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.)

    If the vote was to get rid of everything? Why is it 89% of the posts in here say bring back the old? (beta download still slower then 4.2) Running Bittorrent & Vuze hoping you will undo the mess you made. Dam if it works don’t fix it!

    You say you read these correct? Then bring back 4.2, make an upgrade that lets you choose to have less for less. Put the donate button right on the home HD page. I will donate to get the old vuze back.

  • Sumyun Gai

    I can do nothing else on the web while vuze is running. It takes almost all bandwidth so that email clients timeout, browsers fail to render pages, and even VoIP becomes useless. This version did not improve that problem. Also, Vuze usually crashes my system at 4 am whenever i leave downloads to run overnight.

    I’ve read info on how to install it via the command line, but haven’t seen how to upgrade. I feel I will install a second copy in a different folder, would like to avoid this. any info is much appreciated.

    Great job in case of memory use, but when I browse through detailed views I notice delays in graphics on an older system.

    Keep this great software running and thanks.

  • Jack De Feo aka MacsterX

    I seriously doubt we will ever be told the real reasons behind the recent developments at Vuze. I’ve yet to be convinced that the changes were necessary to keep the Vuze software free to its users. The friends feature could have been offered as a subscription only add on. That alone would have made Vuze much more interesting and user friendly than the lifeless generic clone of Miro that it has become. Its disappointing that they didn’t even think of trying to figure out a way to offer the friends feature as a paid subscription with publishing included. That would have really given Vuze the competitive edge it needed to sustain its growth and given YouTube a run for its money.

  • Safwat

    Maybe the feature minimizing was necessary, such as sharing with friends but removing the HD Networks was not a very good idea. Someone said :

    “Why all the changes ?????? Seems to have made Vuze worse instead of better” and I couldn’t argue with him.

    The Vuze HD network had all the content I needed but it doesn’t seem to have them anymore. I liked the new Design of the HD network not the content. Is RSS that important?
    And sometimes search doesn’t work properly.

    WHAT ON EARTH HAS HAPPENED !!!
    What happened to the HD Music Videos section, it is so hard to see what is availble now, how big it is, PREVIEWS !, the previous way or browsing videos was perfect.

    So so so disapointed.

    I didn’t believe it at first when i heard the drastic change in the vuze hd network, but since seeing the new updates all i see now is just another torrent downloader. Things that once set vuze aside from the rest are now something of the past. I guess my favourite feature within vuze was the ability to watch hd trailers of new release games and movies, aswell as other random vids that were neatly categorized with a thumbnail view. Vuze has become a bleak piece of software which took a dive into the cesspool of programs for sheep. So many other programs out there that use even less memory that look the same, so you gotta ask… why use vuze anymore??

  • Davo

    Yea i loved Vuze until the update. Friends was nice but the Vuze hd network change and presentation was great. Now it absolutley blows. Thumbs down all the way, and i think usage will shrink to nothing. Vuze the barren wasteland. Uninstall

    The new version is very horrible. I wan`t the last Vuze (4.2). Credeti ca se poate? Altfel o sa renunt la Vuze si cred ca milioane de utilizatori vor face la fel.
    Exista vreo posibilitate de a renunta la versiunea 4.3?

    Memory is better but it all ends there.
    Once Ive set a very fair upload/download speed it changes it and gives me 2kbs and takes 110kbs.
    Downloads dont exceed 5kbs (usually less) unless I use it from 6am – 10am GMT.
    Nat test STILL doesnt work on Vuze but does on other programs.
    Getting rid, its a pile of crap

  • sixi

    The Previous one was much better than this. I was able to preview a video before I download it. This feature simple doesn’t exist anymore. It seems this new version is a downgrade with features, probably that’s why it is faster…It is a big disappointment…I have to look for another solution then.

    Hola buenas días. Tengro un problema con la nueva version de vuze. En las versiones anteriores se podia ver el video antes de descargar y aparecian las imagenes de los videos en HD, Cuando actualice a la V4.3 , esto se dejo de apreciar y se volvio muy complicado. ¿Que ha pasado ?.
    He notado que la pagina vuze HD network ya no deja entrar a ver los videos.
