Azureus


I have been playing with BitTorrent for a little while, and Azureus is a great cross platform client. It is written in Java, and it runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. It allows you to quickly download large files quickly, by using a little bit of everyone's upload bandwidth.




Azureus has a bunch of plugins that you can install. Here is a list of the plugins that I have installed:


  1. RSS Importer - Will automatically import torrent files listed in rss feeds, according to the filters that you set.

  2. Swing Web Interface - Allows you to control Azureus remotely via a web browser.

  3. Status Mailer - Sends emails when a download starts and/or completes.


You can find legally downloadable content at LegalTorrents, and they have RSS feeds of the content.
