I am already in a contstant battle with Spyware. I am willing to pay for a good file sharing app with no harmful add ons. I heard Kazaa lite is good. Where is the best place to get this. Anyone here use it? Let me know if it is worth the $$.

Soulseek.

No adware or spyware or any of tha garbage. I would reccomend donating 5 dollars through paypal it makes your downloads and searches much much better. It is all I use these days.

I went to the Kazaa Lite site and it looks like it is gone. I will try Soulseek, I have heard that name mentioned a few times as a good one. I tried IRC and that seemed pretty difficult to use...

Bittorrent is the best...it's not really a program in the traditional p2p sense either.

We have a nice guy here who provides full Chiefs games for download through bittorrent.

To download music I prefer WinMX it is very easy to use. I might try soulseek and see if that is any good.

bittorrent is dead. most of kazaa sucks because the files are all 'bogus' and mpaa is writing your ip number down .

I wouldn't use anything mainstream or lets anyone know your ip number.

www.es5.com is interesting.

he is half right. bit torrent as it is now will die. but exeem is a bit torrent client. It is being developed by the people that brought you suprnovoa. Difference it its not centralized like bit torrent is now. It should end up something like kazaa expect far better download speed. i just hope they can somehow can stop fake files on the network or virus.

Huh? Bittorrent has never been centralized.

As for nova, there's a BETTER torrent site out there already:

And there are a half-dozen other sites that are good too.

Exceem will die out too since there is nothing new about it. Nothing anonymous.

You still send out your ip number.

of course it is silly people. take down the trackers you take down bit torrent. and yes there are some good sites but better then suprnova?

The the trackers are not centralized...

You cant take down all of the trackers every where.

If there is a p2p client then there is going to be a link between users at some point. By your logic any of these links means centralization which is not true.

By your logic every p2p progam is centralized.

How is it centralized if you're downloading from half a dozen people or more (depending on the file).

They publish the letters they get from companies. They're based in Sweden so American companies can't touch them.

I just clicked on your link. I can't even read half the shit on their site. I tried a bittorrent client last week and downloaded a movie and the quality was shit IMO. I will wait for the DVD to come out and copy it.

But I may try to use the client to download programs and other stuff. Thanks for the good link.

Suprnova was in Finland or some country near there.

Yes, some of the site is in Swedish. But the torrents are all in English. I have searched for all kinds of stuff and gotten whatever I needed.

Quality of the movie was probably shit because you downloaded something that was shit. I download full DVD-rips from many seeders and they are full DVD quality, look great. Of course they are alot bigger than 700 MB Divx rips.

It was just testing it out to be honest. I am really a newbie when it comes to bittorrent so I don't know what to look for.Where is the best place to download DVD quality movies then and how can you tell if it is DVD quality before you download? Any help would be much appreciated.

SO far I haven't seen any law suits going against people downloading music. All of the ones that I have seen are lawsuits against people sharing the files for others to use.

That is why I use Kazaa Lite, allow 10 downloads but keep all new and popular music out of my "Shared Music Folder". I have a full blown, non-spyware, Kazaa-lite exe, that I can email to anybody that wants it. It is 4 meg so you have to use gmail or some other email host that allows larger files.

There is no one place to download from. With nova gone the best place to find TORRENTS for movies is The Pirate Bay.

As far as DVD quality, most DVD rips are about 4.7 GB so they fit on one DVD. Divx rips are compressed DVD rips (AVI files instead of MPEG-2) that run about 700 megs or so.

The higher the filesize the higher the quality.
