PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE!

Hi,
I just came across this site and fell IN love! There are many shows here I love, and many that I can put to the table. But, I don't understand how to do it, so first things first. I have a Mac, and downloaded Vuze. I dont know how to go from here. I have the show I want to download, but I need easy terms and very simplified steps into how to get this done. Possibly someone to mentor me thru the process? The show I want is Heart 12/5/77 Birminham, Alabama.

OH!! I will even download a different program if it is easier to use.

Thanks,
Heidi

Once I have mastered this, I will start posting shows with the forums help as well.

Re: PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE!

Looking at your statistics and the heart thread you were able to figure it out yourself. (Keep in mind that this is a sharing community, so once you finished downloading leave your torrent client (vuze in your case) open so somebody else can download it from you).

Oh and welcome!

Re: PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE!

you will need to get an app that plays flacs like Cog or Xact to convert the files to something iTunes can play.
Apparently you can download a show..after the download is complete leave Vuze running so others may share from you. leave it open to you have shared 100 percent or more please....On shows that have been posted here for a while that may be hard but on things that have been posted more recently that should not be trouble...
for video get VLC from VLC.org (match to your OS!!!). that will play most everything.
hello welcome enjoy

Re: PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE!

No, sorry. I just figured out how to post. I still do not know how to download, that is why I posted in the snail mail and at other persons looking for Heart.

Can you help me learn to download, and then upload later?

Thanks,
Heidi

No, I do not know how to download at all. I have Vuze, but have no idea how to use it, or keep it running....

Re: PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE!

look at the stats under your name...that 555.03 mb suggests that you HAVE indeed gotten something via download.......when you open vuze in the left side panel switch to the library listings and that will show you that you have.....OR open your documents folder and then the Vuze (or azureus) folder..what is in there?
that is one issue which can be worked through once you know what is what...
to download a show from here or other torrent sites using vuze on a mac...
open the page for the show..on the bottom of the first post on that page is an attached file....click on that link. you will get a dialog box asking you with which app you wish to open that file...select vuze (set a a default if you like) and then you will end up downlaoding the file set to your documents folder...THESE FILES WILL NOT PLAY in iTunes without been converted as I posted above..
so....one downloads a show..then converts the file set to a playable format....

be patient trying to get this stuff together it is not too tricky one you are used to it but yes at first it is baffling....


I am not sure how you have 555.03 of downloads done....what is in your Vuze documents folder now?
