Install Vuze 5.3.0 Bittorrent Client in Ubuntu 14.04

The Vuze Bittorrent Client formerly known as Azureus, is an end-to-end software application for all your torrent needs. Although it is a complete bittorrent downloader, the Vuze program maintains a lightweight footprint, doesn’t slow your computer down, and quickly downloads torrents. The Vuze torrent downloader for Windows or Mac makes it easy for you to find torrents online, whether you are downloading torrents from a tracker site, from a friend via magnet links, or anywhere else on the web. Once you find a torrent the Vuze Bittorrent Client makes it simple to download torrents and automatically optimizes torrent download speeds.

Vuze includes a built-in Vuze torrent download manager which lets you view the status of each of your bittorrent downloads. Once your downloaded torrents are finished Vuze makes it straightforward and simple to watch and listen to the downloaded content, using an HD video player plug-in as part of this torrent client for Ubuntu’s functionality. Users can play any video or audio files and even albums from the HD player seconds after download is complete, and with Vuze Plus you can even start playing the content while the content is downloading
