Vuze is a free software application that allows you to transfer files using the BitTorrent protocol, a peer-to-peer file sharing system for transferring large amounts of data. By default, when you download and install Vuze on your computer, the installation will set your default maximum upload and download speed. You can, however, make Vuze faster when downloading movies by manually changing Vuze's upload and download speed settings.
