Free downloads

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what programs you recommend to get free music and videos and things. Right now I use Limewire free editon but I was wondering if there was anything better then it but still free?

I knew you'd say that. hehe.

 

Sorry, can't assist you in piracy today. But hey, if you were going to, say, download *real* free music (like the music I make; see: DjLizard.net) then I'd say get Shareaza.

You can download free media content such as music, movies, pictures at http://creativecommons.org/ or http://search.yahoo.com/cc if they're under the CC (Creative Commons) license.

 

There are also many clients that connects to P2P (Peer to peer) networks where users share files with each other.

Just be sure to avoid Kazaa because it contains spyware.

DC++ is a open-source DC (Direct Connect) client. http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/ is really great.

ABC is a open-source Bittorrent client. http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/

Shareaza is open-source client that can connect to Gnutella 1 & 2, Edonkey and Bittorrent. http://www.shareaza.com/

 

You can also try google. ;)

Shareaza, Limewire and Morpheus use the Gnutella network.

Eldmannen:

The edit button is your friend.

It looks like this beautiful little image: p_edit.gif

Learn to use it wisely when you are the last one to post in a thread.

 

So remember...

 

Click: p_edit.gif

 

Don't click: t_qr.gif or t_reply.gif when you are the last to post within a thread.

 

:D
