Supported Video Devices
We support any USB device with UMS (USB Mass Storage). This includes most Android devices, although some of the newer ones have dropped UMS for MTP (Media Transfer Protocol). If you have a device that can connect to your computer via USB, and you don't see it in this list, simply plug it in (and mount it if the device has that option) and see if it shows up in Vuze! If your device asks for a mode, choose the one that's similar to "mass storage" or "usb drive". If it works, come back here and add it to the list :) If your device doesn't show up and you are a bit tech savvy, you can try your luck with showing Generic Devices.
If you have a device listed in Vuze, but identified wrongly (name is different), please post your device name and the displayed name on device forum so we can fix it.

Supported Since Column
The Supported Since column lists the version of the Vuzexcode that support for the device started on. To find out what version of the Vuzexcode plugin you are using, Select Tools->Options->Plugins->"Vuze Transcoder" in Vuze and at the very top you should see the plugin version.
MTP + No USM Work Around
As mentioned above, some more recent Android devices don't support attaching their storage as a USB storage device but rather use an alternative protocol called MTP. On Windows there is native support for MTP - Windows Explorer will show a view of the Android device's storage and you can drag+drop files to it. A somewhat manual solution to working with these devices is to transcode the files to a compatible format and then manually copy the result to the device. For example, for the Nexus 7 you can use the various iTunes .mp4 profiles to perform the conversion. When complete right-click on the file under iTunes in the Vuze sidebar and select 'show in Explorer' - this will locate the file on your computer so you can then drag+drop it to the device.
|Asus||Nexus 7 and 10||Convert to iTunes .mp4 format|
In general, we have two types of Generic Devices, USB connections and Network connections. Generic devices are hidden by default. You can right click on "Devices" in the sidebar and select "Show Generic Devices" to view them.
Most devices that plug into your computer via the USB port will be detectable by Vuze. We add any USB device we detect, but if we haven't identified it in the supported list above, we mark them as 'generic' or hidden. Six h264 profiles are added to each of these devices.
If you have any luck getting your USB connected device to work, please add it to the list below. Of you are tech savvy, please post on the device forum with a screenshot of the Properties (right click on the device and select 'Properties') so we can officially include (non-generic) it in the next build.
Network devices that announce their presence as a media renderer will also be marked as a Generic Device until we've had time to test their capabilities.

Very basic support for HTTP streaming exists for all transcoded files by using the Local RSS feature. To use this first enable the 'Local RSS' feature and set the various options as desired. Right-click on the device you want to stream from and select the 'Publish RSS Feed' option.
By default this will publish RSS feeds to http://127.0.0.1:6905/ - browser to here to verify things are working correctly. You will note a top-level 'devices' link - click on this to get to a page that lists all the devices you have enabled. For example, if you enable this on the Amazon Fire device you will see an 'Amazon Kindle' link. The important thing to note is the 'html' link to the right of the device name. Clicking on this will give you a browser view of the devices transcoded for the device (clicking on the device name link gives you an RSS feed view of the files). You will now see all the files transcoded for the device listed. You can click on the file name itself to stream it to the device or the 'save' link to download it.
When streaming to the device you need to know the IP address of the computer running Vuze - for a home network this will likely be 192.168.x.y. If you have enabled Pairing then you can use this feature to connect by browsing to http://remote.vuze.com/?sid=rss on your device and entering your access code. Otherwise you will need to find the address manually (on windows run 'ipconfig' in a command prompt) and then browse to http://local_IP_address:6905
Note that to make your device appear in the sidebar you will need to connect the device using a USB cable and enable USB mode. This need only be done once. Alternatively you can manually add the device if you have access to a .vuze file for it - see below.
Manually Adding Devices
In general devices are discovered automatically, either over the network or when they are connected to your computer via USB.
For some cases it may be necessary to manually add a device. One scenario for this is when you want to use HTTP streaming. To do this you need to have the device showing in Vuze in order to be able to transcode files for it, but if you don't have the correct USB cable available (to connect in USB mode and therefore have Vuze recognise the device), or if the device doesn't support a USB mode, there is no way for Vuze to find the device.
In this case you need to obtain a .vuze file for it and add it either by double clicking the file or via the File->Open Vuze File menu option.
Here's a few:
- Kindle Fire - http://plugins.vuze.com/files/devices/Amazon_Kindle_Fire.vuze
- PS3 - http://plugins.vuze.com/files/devices/PS3.vuze
- XBox - http://plugins.vuze.com/files/devices/XBox.vuze
- Generic Android - http://plugins.vuze.com/files/devices/GenericAndroid.vuze - this is for people who can't get USB mass storage mode to work. Pick an h.264 profile that fits your device.
- Generic USB - http://plugins.vuze.com/files/devices/GenericUSB.vuze - this is for people who can't get USB device auto-detection working. You will need to right-click on the device and set the 'copy to folder' to be your USB device. Don't forget to enable 'generic devices' by right-clicking on the Devices entry in the sidebar.
Note that if you are experimenting with the HTTP streaming feature then regardless of your device type you can install the Kindle Fire one above, perhaps change its default transcode profile to something closer to what your device supports, and see if it will playback.
email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need others, or get a friend to export their device by right-clicking on it and selecting 'Export'
DNLA / UPnP Media Servers
Many devices use the DLNA protocol to discover and interact with Media Servers on your network. The 'Media Server Plugin' within Vuze (which is installed by default) supports this and makes your downloaded content available for playback on these devices. Devices listed on Wikipedia's Comparison of digital media players with "DLNA" in the "Network File Client" column should be compatible with Vuze.
The devices discover the Vuze Media Server using a protocol known as 'multicast' - Vuze periodically broadcasts its presence on your home network and the devices listen for media servers. If your home network is comprised of a single router/subnet then this usually works without issue. If you have multiple subnets configured (for example a wired network and a wireless network using different address ranges) then this can cause issues as multicast network packets can find it difficult to travel between them.
Once a device discovers Vuze it will in general directly connect to the Vuze Media Server to request a list of available media. This event will cause Vuze to discover the device and mark it as online/display it in the sidebar.
Firewalls can interfere with this discovery process, for example by blocking the connection from the device to the media server (in this case the device will show Vuze as present but won't be able to list the content; also Vuze will not show the device as online in the sidebar)
