Playback on Apple TV, Blackberry, More Android

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.

Android Device Brands

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.

Give Vuze a try, and let us know what you think!

    en francais s’il vous plais, cela fait plusieurs fois que je vous le demande.
    Merci !!!

  • Serge Lesturgeon

    est ce que je peux installer Vuze sur mon iPhone ?

  • ZeroPaladn

    Nice to see that android is mostly cross-compatible. Gogo Acer Liquid E!

  • Ratbertovich

    Larry David is so wrong about Switzerland not loving fighting… The Swiss were mostly mercenaries so fierce and savage in war that every monarch in Europe agreed that they should be taken out of the equation. Empires in Europe promised Switzerland safety from aggression in return for the Swiss Army operating exclusively as the Pope’s elite guards. Obviously, they also needed somewhere to “off-shore” some of their treasury as well…

    I don’t know how to edit the “official list” but you can put the HTC Tattoo on because it works really well on mine! Thanks Vuze! :D

  • Stef

    @Serge Lesturgeon:
    2010 and still you don’t speak English? Shame on you!

  • Ferayne

    First of all, I want to thank and congratulate the Vuze team and developers for all your hard work & effort to make this great application available to all of Us.

    This is the most powerful application in the market for both platforms, windows y mac with the great combination of open source.

    I’ve being using it for almost 6 years now, enjoying all features in every update of this great app. But, disappointing on this update. because, the playback feature it does not work or not being available on my system. I own a Power PC. g4 Dual 1.25 GHz. 1 MB L3 cache per processor and 2GB DDR SDRAM and Mac os X 10.5.8 running.

    I wish you guys have a perfect solution for this inconvenient on which I would like to take advantage of it and sync music, flicks and much more to my htc 4g Evo.

  • Ferayne

    For the posting earlier I meant devices button on the navigation pane.

    Also i would like to see Vuze app in the android platform, that will be Awesome!!

    If some one know how to solve this, please let me know.

    Thankx to all!!

  • Larissa

    @Serge Lesturgeon L’internet est en anglais Serge. Faut l’apprendre

    Ben non. L’anglais ne représente que 27 à 29 %. C’est la langue la plus utilisée, mais pas la seule. L’Internet n’est pas qu’en anglais.

    Blackberry is mentioned here and I do not see any Blackberry devices on the full list? I downloaded the latest version 4.5 too and there is no Blackberry devices aid? Or must I have the Blackberry desktop manager on my PC in order to be able to have movies on my device via Vuze?

    I cannot get the (my devices) on the left panel of Vuze.
    How do i get this, i have tried and downloaded the newest version and still no joy. Do i have to uninstall the version i have before i install the newer version. thx.

  • Erwin Rumblebutt Sweden

    Thanks Vuze.
    About Larry Davis, that joke works really good, over there.
    Here we laugh at the same joke, but for a VERY different reason. Maby he want to stand in for Mike Tyson too :)

  • Dan

    Vuze disappears when I try to download.

  • Peter

    Trying to find out why I have a green stripe running thru the middle of my laptop or TV screen during playback of videos??? Anyone

  • anthony reese

    i love it

  • ej

    my vuze dosnt display what i search..thats why i cant download movie pls help…

  • Martijn

    Wow, it took me a while to appreciate Vuze and especially the devices tab, but these days Vuze is doing 2 important things on my Mac that no other software can do:

    1. Read and download torrents from an RSS feed automatically (uTorrent will do that, but not the OSX version)

    2. It will save me hours and hours of converting shows just because I want to watch them on my Apple TV or my WDTVLive and they happened to be .mkv.

    (There’s also option 3 which is that it turns a Mac into a windows media center server, but I already have connect360 for that.)

    So… that’s actually quite cool! Thanks guys!

    (I still don’t really like having to build and maintain yet another media library to get the full benefit, but I don’t mind too much, it’s just a matter of dragging and droppping a file to Vuze and cleaning up once in a while.)

    I’ll experiment with option 2 some more and then it’s probably time to drop some cash ;-)

  • johan

    thanks for this,its new for me and i am learning to use vuse,go with the good work,bye bye,

  • Drew

    I’m a UK citizen and am not sure how Tivo works in the US. I was wondering if the UK’s SKY+HD boxes could be connected with VUZE as they are now connected through ethernet to our home networks. Is this possible or do the limitations of SKY stop this from being possible?
