What with all the fuss from companies and people getting sued, more and more online video sources are going legal. The faster they do it, the bigger chance they have of getting a larger share of the pie. Now if only the rates are reasonable as well, everybody will be happy.
The latest company to join the bandwagon is Azureus. Now they have been in the peer to peer business for a while with people downloading files using their software of the same name. They are now going to carefully insure that all the materials are legal.
They say youtube has nothing on them. Anyone will be able to watch videos in full mode and still get clear images thanks to high definition. Those who are interested merely have to go to the company website of Azureus or simply download the latest web- enabled version. It is an open source java application so there is definitely no cost to downloading it.
Thanks to agreements they have reached with 12 TV and movie companies, the library of Azureus will be well packed. They are committed to complying with the copyright law and will ensure that all DRM agreements are followed.
Definitely people will still be able to upload their own clips and films to share with their friends. They’ll even have the option to make them private “trackerless” content to keep it from being viewed by anyone but their chosen viewers. That’s a good addition to the service.
The videos will be ready for download to an iPod or VC-1 format (this what windows media files use). The files can be transferred to a portable or a PC as you prefer.
