You asked for it. As of today’s release, we’re rolling out support for the new Apple TV, Blackberry devices, and a wider range of Android phones. For those who have been offline since early 2009, Vuze Device Playback enables you to drag-and-drop files you download with Vuze to easily play back on your TV and mobile. We launched support for Apple devices and a variety of living room favorites early in 2009 (PS3, Xbox, PSP, Tivo, and Samsung TVs).
We tallied your requests for additional supported devices, went shopping, and are happy to announce Device Playback support for:
- Apple TV (the new version from our favorite hobbyists)
- Blackberry Devices
- More Android Devices (beyond the initial devices launched in August):
- Dell Streak
- HTC Nexus One
- LG Ally
- Motorola Droid 2
- Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
- Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini
- WD TV
Click here for the full list of supported devices, which now includes over 25 major device brands. In addition, many Android phones will work despite not being included on our official support list. Broad support should now exist for Android phones from Dell, HTC, Motorola, LG, Samsung, and Sony Ericsson, as well as all Blackberrys. Even if you don’t see your Android phone or specific Blackberry on the list of supported devices, try connecting it to your PC or Mac with Vuze open. If the device works, feel free to verify it as a supported device on the official list.
Apple, Google, and RIM… fight it out! We love you all, and we’ll gladly play Switzerland in your war games. As Larry David once said:
Switzerland is a place where they don’t like to fight, so they get people to do their fighting for them while they ski and eat chocolate.
- Larry David
Alas, our version of Switzerland involves more coding and less skiing, but such is life…
Finally, this release includes a large range of optimizations and improvements in the base code for 4.5.
