Vuze is a BitTorrent client written in Java that runs on any computer that supports the Java framework. The software allows you to share media using channels and categories, and once a piece of media has downloaded, it then uses the BitTorrent protocol to share the media with other users on the Internet. This process of sharing is called "seeding" and takes a significant amount of bandwidth. You can disable automatic seeding using the "share ratio" ability of the client.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the Vuze application on your computer. This is in the "All Programs" menu on Windows and the "Applications" menu on Mac systems.

  2. 2

    Click "Tools" on the top of the screen, then click the "Options" sub-menu.

  3. 3

    Click "Queue" on the left side of the screen, then expand "Seeding" by pressing the "+" symbol.

  4. 4

    Click "Ignore Rules."

  5. 5

    Enter a value of "0 "next to the label "Ignore torrents with seeding ratio over." This will exclude all files from being seeded.

  6. 6

    Click "OK" to save your changes.
