Best File-Sharing Network?


#1

What program do forum users utilize to download mp3s, videos etc?
I need something idiot-proof, like Napster and/or Kazaa.
(I got rid of Kazaa because of all the spyware)

So, now I've read about Bearshare, GNutella, Limwire, BitTOrrent, etc but the more I read the more confused I get.

Recommend a program to me, and if someone could tell me about a FAQ that would explain these things I'd appreciate it.


#2

try overnet. www.edonkey.com. Takes forever to actually get the files, but it has the largest selection I've seen anywhere.


#3

hey sonny,

Have you tried kaza lite, apparently it is meant to be free of all that spyware


#4

IMO, nothing beats WinMX.


#5

i'll second WinMX
easy to use, you can find almost anything, and fast downloads if you got cable...


#6

Forget kazaa lite..
Go for kazaa K++, you'll wonder why you haven't been using it!

the new morpheus is pretty good


#8

I was using Kazaa Lite, and it was horrible towards the end but maybe I had an older version?

I will try all of your suggestions, thanks.


#9

I am using Bearshare and it is working great for me. I had issues with the different versions of Kazza as well, so I switched over to Bearshare.


#10

the best one i ever used was Kazaa Lite K++ v2.4.3 and it was all i ever needed (still very good today) but my bro is studing law, and since he has told me the penalties for these crimes i have decided to go clean.


#11

GUYS THIS IS SERIOUS SHIT- I don't know what I did, but I can't see the video on both Windows Medi a Player or Real One!!

WTF? I downloaded KazaaLite again and was trying to download some videos.

I went into my shared folder to play back some of the ones I already had previously, to double check before I downloaded other ones.

Well, I get the audio on all my old videos, but I don't have any video at all! Help!

I've got close to a 100 wrestling and MMA videos, and (of course) a good amount of porn, and I want to share them but..could they be corruped?

Or is it just the players that are the problem?

Let me know!


#12

what about file sharing for hard to find drum and bass, and acid jazz, house, etc???? any good ones?


#13

Although it's not a file-sharing program you can find whatever you need on the newsgroups.

search for xnews and read up on how to use them.


#14

CHuy, I'll give it a try when I have some time


#15

Seriously t-folk, I can't see any of my video files!

What did i do wrong?


#16

Newsgroups aren't bad. IRC is a good place too, especially if you know of a xdcc spider.


#17

I just dl ARES last night and its working great.


#18

Kazaa files were corrupted, I just uninstalled it.

I'll now give Win a shot, see how that does.

If it doesn't pass muster, I'll try the others


#19

ARES is imho that best file sharing network. It is easy like kazaa but with no add/spyware. All the files work too. download it at download.com

SonnyS, you might not have the video codecs for that particular file. Look for a program called G-Spot. It tells if your computer has the required video and audio codecs that can play back your files.
