Import from Azureus

"buggy azureus". Heh, kids these days.

Azureus, unlike your beloved µTorrent, has a .torrent file export feature. Also, the original .torrent files are stored in your Windows user profile.

Azureus also now has the ability to move and rename files and folders on the fly. Eat your heart out. :P

I don't really understand this. .torrents are also in the Windows user profile for µT users. Also, why do you need a 'torrent file export' feature when you can just copy them from the user profile directory?

I have to say, I disagree with the comment about 'buggy Azureus', bloated and slow it may be, but it's more stable than µT if only because it's got a larger developer base and is more 'mature'.

I agree, Azureus isn't really buggy, it's just slow and bloated (mostly because of JRE, but it has a lot to do with the code and the amount of crap they put in it). It does function very well, for the most part (large torrents and large filelists cause it to be VERY slow and sometimes crash with out of memory errors).

azureus is still the benchmark for bittorrent clients. i havent seen any client that is as good as it yet. shame that they cant port it to c++ cause then im sure it would truly be excellent not having to use the jre an all. µTorrent is still very young and im sure in a few months time will be up there contending with the more popular ones like comet and azureus. im happy with µTorrent for most of my downloads and very rarely need to switch over.

First, back to the topic - i had no problem resuming azureus torrents using utorrent, no problems at all, so if someone still wondering about it - go for it, it works.

About azureus, imho, not really buggy, but uses JRE, and thats a MAJOR resource hog. The entire java concept looks kinda like a reincarnation of a gwbasic to me, but please dont start a flame on this line. And, i dont think porting a java code to native C++ code for multiple platforms is something they are going to do, so for me it's now the utorrent :)

if you havent saved the .torrent files you'll have to wait for all of em to finish :( ie my situation.

Shouldn't you just be able to redownload the .torrents from wherever you got them in the first place? Also, I'm pretty sure Azureus automatically saves them somewhere, but you may have to look around for that.

I agree with Azureus being the benchmark. However, porting it to C++ would probably remove one of its advantages to an extent; it can run on any OS with a JRE.
