Not looking for a big debate on whether downloading music, movies, pictures of your secretary is bad or not. I just want to know what you use if you do use it.

Looking for features, links, information on what said app does to your pc.

Thank you.

Feel free to use the other thread to continue the debate.:thumbs:

Better than that is get your tape recorder out and put a fresh tape in it (preferably 30 minutes per side). Plug in the microphone on side of recorder and then hold it up to the speaker. Been working since 1979 baby!
I will download music on places like MySpace where they want you to do it. I will also pay for it. Rockabilly music is made for the love of the music and no way they get rich. Buying it is the best way to support the music. Clady should know that is also the same for the Blues.

I use uTorrent for torrent files and Free Download Manager for everything else. Not sure if that's what you're actually asking?

If I was the type to look for pirated music, I might use something like Limewire.

It is called BitTorrent. Download it.

Say you like Elton John because you're a homosexual and enjoy his music. You're too poor to afford it, but you can do this:

1. Go to Google
2. Type in Elton John Discography Torrent
3. Click link, and then download the torrent.
4. You just got a bunch of happy homo tunes.

You can also just go to Google and type in **** like God Is An Astronaut - Mediafire/Rapidshare/Megaupload and most any artists albums can be found in .rar or .zip files. And if you're cool like me, you roll with LUELINKS -- and have access to every type of media in the world. FO FREE.

I haven't used a P2P sharing system in ages, not since college and Napster, so I'm pretty uninitiated. What are the risks with things like BitTorrent? Is there legal liability there? I would assume there is.

I know it's a one in a million chance, but I can't open myself up to that kind of liability or litigation in my line of work.

I got Clady's back on this one. Zune marketplace is bad ass. $15 per month (which my brother pays) and you get almost any modern and alot of the classic music for free. No stealing no BS all legit. Even better you don't have to jump on the apple fanboy bandwagon. For all that other happy crap the ipod does I have a smart phone. I want my mp3 player to play music.

And to those stealing intellectual property, grow up. For me that was about at age 26.

Vuze is the best torrent client, IMO, for several reasons. 1, it transcodes videos to be played on external plays(360, PS3) and you can stream directly from the client. 2, its search engine is really good. 3, its video player is as good if not better than VLC.

P.S.
I download music illegally, and if I like it enough, I'll buy and album or two of that artist's stuff to reward them. I do the same with TV shows and movies. I sleep well at night.

I have access to a CD burner and can totally "burn" copies of any music in my collection. Plus I have this really cool printer that actually lets me make labels for the cases using all kinds of fonts. It's pretty awesome but I don't talk about it much because of what happened to Napster.

There is a risk, as far as being tracked and some sort of litigation. But there are also steps you can do (from what I understand) to prevent that, or at least make it more difficult.

There has been a few cases of people being busted, but those people are mostly seeders, I.E., they spend a lot of bandwidth sending stuff to other people. I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't understand why people are so up in arms about "piracy." If I want a book, I can go to a tax funded public library and get it for free. If I want to, I can stand my ass in front of a scanner and scan every damn page of it. No one gets upset about that. But because acquiring music is more convenient than acquiring a book, people are horrified by my transgressions in doing so.

****, most libraries have CDs you can check out. If I go to my library, check out a CD, and rip it to my hard drive, does this offend you? Because it's the exact same thing. Downloading it is just a little more convenient.

Well, considering that artists make a decent portion of their money on album sales, it shouldnt be that hard to figure out why intellectual property is important to maintain.

I am a member at multiple libraries in my area. They know me by name at my town's library as I am in there every couple days, if they don't have what I want I go a different one. After I post this I am going to pick up some reserved items I requested.

I have only rented 1 DVD (Avatar in Blueray because the libraries don't buy Blue ray) in over 2 years. I get all my dvd's from the library and save a ton of cash. I look at the library as my DVD and extended CD catalog. I also check out PS3 games there.

If I like a CD I checked out I will go out and buy it. I got tired of getting stuck with an album I only wanted one song from. Recently I started a thread here asking about people's favorite concept albums. I got responses and requested the items from the library and gave them a listen. A lot only got one listen. I ended up buying like 3 out of 12 CD's I checked out at the library because I really liked them. It was funny because the Moody Blues albums others loved I wasn't so keen on and the ones that got passed over I fell in love with. Moodys have such a huge catalog that I would have been out a lot of "bread" only to be stuck with something I might never listen to. I got to review the catalog before I bought which is something I wished I had done more of years ago.

At least the library is buying a copy of the media, when you consider how many libraries there are in the US alone that is a lot of record sales, then if the artist gets some sales from people like me it is a bonus. You can ask your library to aquire cd's, dvd's, books that you are interested in and if they have the budget they will generally buy it I haven't had issues with items I requested. When people upload product a lot of time that original media was stolen and or hosted from somewhere else and the artists see very little if anything.

I also like to go to used book stores for books, there is a chain buy us that I trade in old books and CD's for credit, it is not much but something for stuff taking up space. I don't like to buy used CD's I got hit with too many that had skips. The thing is someone bought the original copy, hopefully the store didn't steal it or fence stolen used books.

And to answer the question if you just go to the library and get an arm load of CD's to rip without ever supporting the artist in anyway then I could see a problem with it especially if you pass it on or uploaded it somewhere else. If you buy something that you checked out from the library that you never would have otherwise or support an artist you found there then I don't see an issue.

i used to use deminoid, it was great, but they track your uploading and people will blacklist you if you dont give back, and thats when your taking the risk, ill stick with rapidshare searches where i download but dont have to take the risk of uploading.

blackcatgames was another good one, just for games tho, no music or software, i think they may have expanded now, but much like demenoid i dont go there.

wiiso.com is great for wii games, and filestube.com is a great search engine for rapidshare and other filehosters. 99% of what i look for i find in filestube

It takes a lot of $1 to make a collection. And, usually, when I turn off my radio and put on MP3s, it's because I'm tired of listening to the same 20 songs over and over. I mostly listen to country and since the country-pop merger began happening, you really don't get a lot of anything else. It's probably a 100:1 ratio of 2000s songs:anything before 2000 and quite often it's just the exact same songs played behind each other.

I download entire singer collections just for something different. Songs definitely aren't worth even $1 but since they're free, I take 'em.

Actually, this isn't terribly accurate. I would say album sales account for maybe 10% of a musician's income. I guess if you want to call that a decent portion, that's fine. But musicians in the modern age make most of their money through tours.

Not saying it doesn't matter when people take the music for free, but it's not as big a deal as Douchebaggica would have you believe.

Just because you rationalize stealing songs, that doesn't make them free. I guess if the songs aren't worth $1 to you, they shouldn't be worth stealing.
