FrostWire is a free, rich featured Bittorrent client, audio & video & download, with an integrated Media Player and Media Library. FrostWire is forked from open source community project LimeWire's back in 2005, its freelance developers located from all around the world. The developers of FrostWire give high regard and respect to the GNU General Public License and consider it to be the ideal foundation of a creative and free enterprise market. FrostWire has evolved to replace LimeWire's BitTorrent core for that of Vuze, the Azureus BitTorrent Engine, and ultimately to remove the LimeWire's Gnutella core to become a 100% BitTorrent client that is simple to use. FrostWire allows any individual to share his/her content to millions of people right from his/her computer without any cost thanks to the BitTorrent P2P network.
It also features a built-in search of multiple torrent trackers and websites, download preview and file format selection. FrostWire does the heavy lifting for you - it searches multiple torrent indexes and presents the results right inside the application, separated by file type, ready for one--click download. It even let's you play most files before the download is complete, which is great for larger files like video or entire audio albums.
In Addition, every copy of FrostWire is a self-contained smart search engine that crawls not only the BitTorrent network - being able to find the rarest of files indexed by .torrent search engines, but also famous video websites, SoundCloud and Archive.org, providing users with the widest content selection possible. Users can preview files from cloud sources and play the files downloaded from the BitTorrent network often way before the transfers are complete. The software now comes with a powerful Media Library that allows you to organize and find downloaded files on your computer, aggregates Internet radio stations and supports audio & video playback in the most popular audio formats today.
