Blubster, just as other p2p programs we have reviewed (Piolet , for example), is a software dedicated entirely to music sharing. The MP2P Network Averages has about 270,000 users. Conscious of what major issue anonymity has become in file sharing over the Internet, Blubster doesn’t forget to promise privacy protection.
This is realized by employing the UDP protocol instead of TCP – the serverless network does not reveal private data thus obstructing any investigation.
While the apparently clean and neat interface and its ease of use may tempt you into giving this program a try, consider yourself warned: Blubster comes with Spyware, Adware and other stuff you may not like.
We can’t deny, however, that the program offers numerous downloads and also a pretty good speed.
Blubster, like many other services of its kind, is a decentralized online community for sharing and downloading music content which has behind its hood the MP3BTF engine, and boasts one million users. The official site boldly states: “Optisoft’s peer-to-peer technology is the product of detailed and long term research as well as studies about transport protocols like UDP and peer-to-peer technologies like Gnutella. We do believe this technology means obviously a breakthrough for the digital media industry and intellectual property rights. Only the future will tell if Blubster will be THE technology to share files between peers.” I personally think the future is here and now for Blubster is not bringing high hopes for the program (might be the name, who knows?).
Strong Points: The program’s features include – Web Browser, Buit-in media player, music only, etc.
Weak Points: Includes Spyware, Adware.
Overall: In brief, better look for something esle.
