Vuze, now playing everywhere

Vuze, now playing everywhere According to their latest blog entry, the updated BitTorrent client Vuze will now automatically convert any downloaded videos to the formats necessary for playback on iPhones, iPods, Apple TVs, PS3s and Xbox 360s.
Says the blog entry:
"Another key pain-point has traditionally been cumbersome transport between devices. Beyond the format maze, its been difficult to get videos easily exported to devices - especially game consoles. The Vuze team spent considerable time thinking through how to simplify this experience. Simply drag-and-drop files to the device of your choice within Vuze, and then click play on your Xbox 360, Playstation 3, or Apple devices."

Vuze says to use the new service, simply download the latest version, 4.2, and enable Devices in the sidebar. From that point, "drag-and-drop videos from your Vuze Library (or desktop) to the device of your choice. Vuze will detect whether or not the video format will playback on the device you select, convert the file, if necessary, and make it available for playback on the device. All you have to do is sit-back and play your HD content on whatever screen you want."

Awesome! But then again...

I hate Vuze. Azureus was nice, but then they came out with this video service and whatever, crap which I don't need... I've switched to uTorrent and Transmission just because of it...

Maybe there's away to get rid of the service but keep that feature along with the torrent app?

Umm, yeah it's called "advanced view." I also dislike the Vuze interface, so I quickly disabled it.

I know about the Advanced View... Vuze is still there when you use it... Still there...

It's a nice feature, but I can't stand Vuze. It's too big. I favor small clients like uTorrent.
