Streaming video to a DLNA device with Vuze

Vuze is a BitTorrent client that can also be used to stream audio and video to a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) device over a network connection. The software is free, but you do need to be careful when installing the software to select the "customize" option to ensure that third-party software bundled with Vuze is not installed with Vuze, since that third-party software may be adware. E.g., see Avoiding the installation of adware when installing Vuze and Vuze - Select customize option to avoid adware/malware during upgrade. E.g., I found GeniusBox software installed on a system during the installation of Vuze when that third-party software was bundled with Vuze. But, as long as you select the "customize" option and decline all third-party software that may be bundled with Vuze, you should be ok.

DLNA provides a standard for sharing digital media among multimedia devices and Vuze can be used to stream audio and video from a computer to a device that supports the DLNA standard, e.g., a input device for a television (TV).

DC++ Shared File Locations

DC++, a Peer to Peer (P2P) filesharing program, stores settings in DCPlusPlus.xml, which you will find in the directory where it is installed. You will find the locations of shared files between share tags. The following is an example.


       <Share>
		<Directory Virtual="Comics & Etc">S:\Comics & Etc\</Directory>
		<Directory Virtual="Cartoons">T:\Cartoons\</Directory>
		<Directory Virtual="Books">T:\Books\</Directory>

Comcast and Cox Continue to Block BitTorrent Traffic

A report by Germany's Max Planck Institute reveals that Comcast and Cox Communications are blocking BitTorrent traffic throughout the day, despite Comcast's claims that it only throttles BitTorrent Traffic during peak network hours. Comcast also claims that its throttling of BitTorrent traffic is imperceptible to its customers. It is likely true that most of Comcast's customers won't realize that degraded performance for BitTorrent transfers are occurring because Comcast is actively throttling that traffic.

LimeWire

After I had cleaned a lot of malware from someone's home system, I found LimeWire on the system. McAfee security software was on the system and prompted me as to whether I wanted to allow LimeWire to run or block it. My last experience with LimeWire was several years ago. At that time I had found the free version came bundled with adware/spyware, so I had the McAfee software block LimeWire. After checking on the current version, though, I found it no longer comes bundled with adware/spyware according to the developer, Lime Wire LLC (see LimeWire's response: Spyware) and the Wikipedia article on LimeWire.

Granted, one should never rely on the developer's or distributors' word on such matters, since they will often simply define the terms "adware" and "spyware" so that they don't include techniques used by their software, instead of using the commonly accepted definitions. But, as far as I can determine, LimeWire has indeed been distributed, even in the free version, without adware or spyware for several years now.
