In addition to the standard Bittorrent Client Features, Vuze also offers:

Downloading Features[edit]

  • Swarm Merging to complete torrents that do not have all the available bits, and to speed up downloading
  • Rate limiting globally, by download, by tag, by peer-set (e.g. peers from a given country), by network (public/I2P) and even by peer. Overall capacity limits are also supported to work with ISP limits. Limits can also be scheduled by time of day etc.
  • WebTorrent support - Vuze can download and see to WebTorrent peers. There is also a built-in WebTorrenn tracker.

Control Features[edit]

  • Robust settings. If you want to control it, there’s probably a setting for it!
  • Remote controlling via Web url, or Android app (any android app that supports the Transmission RPC will do, but we recommend our Vuze Remote, of course).

Organization, Discovery & Social Features[edit]

  • Tags and Categories. Allows you also to set share ratios, file locations, speed limits, etc for a group of torrents.
  • Meta-search, with the ability to add and create custom site templates
  • Swarm Discoveries which lists torrents that other people have downloaded along with the torrents you download.
  • Tag Discovery to discover what other users have tagged content with. This can be very helpful before deciding to download the content.
  • Subscriptions to RSS feeds as well as search results. You can also create your own subscription feed to share with others
  • Decentralized ratings and comments. You can view them before the torrent is added to Vuze.
  • Decentralized public and anonymous chats with default channels for individual torrents, tags, subscriptions, and trackers

Privacy/Security Features[edit]

  • I2P support (using I2P DHT) for anonymous downloading
  • Detection of VPNs for better integration
  • Ability to proxy search results, subscriptions, and internal browser connections through Tor if site is inaccessible

Content Features[edit]

  • Media Playback
  • Media Conversion (Transcoding)
  • UPnP Media Server and DLNA support, allowing devices to connect and browse your content, and allowing Vuze to send content directly to devices.

Plugins[edit]

  • RSS to chat publisher for sharing content streams via chat
  • Decentralized content replication for sharing arbitrary modifiable files
