GNew peer-to-peer file sharing

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 15:07, 22/4/2003 |
 
Marc Warne got in touch to tell us about CocoGnut, the new peer-to-peer file sharing app from Alpha Programming.

After some success with a client for the much loved but now defunct Audiogalaxy Satellite system, Marc's new client allows users to connect to the Gnutella network to download songs, movies and, well, pretty much anything. With no central servers to connect to this network is supposedly impervious to interference by Governments and other nutcases.

Cut to the chase, the cost is fifteen quid (sixteen if paying via PayPal's credit card checking), and you really should go to the website for more info.

Looks great, interesting interface too. Shame we can't play the films we download yet though, unless they're bog standard MPEGs.

If you have a Cineroma beta, I bet you could. Cineroma plays an amazing number of files of different formats/codecs. It plays more than my Mac OS X laptop used to play (until I sold it a couple of months ago cos it was so damn slow and RISC OS is much more interesting :)

I know what you mean about Mac OS X, got one at work. I have not got Cineroma, unfortunatly. Anyone know why it's just on limited release? I can understand the programmer wants to get it right before letting people at it, but the beta tester who post on forums/groups always seem very happy with it.

I notice that CocoGnut uses the Gnutella network.
I currently use Kazaa (on the PeeCee). Does this use the same network or am I getting confused about things again?
Cheers!

Unregistered user Kazza and Gnutella are different networks with different protocols.

I tried Kazza on the PC but does not find it very useful. Too many fakes and to few downloads. Here Gnutella is better imho. But i would love to see eMule on the Risc PC (specially when/if Cineroma is going public).

I've actually found Kazaa very useful for things like films and TV episodes. Haven't tried the Gnutella since I played with the awful clients on Mac OS X and gave up in disgust.

I'm 100% sure Cineroma will appear and when it does it will make life a lot easier for most of us. I don't think the author really realises what he has actually achieved, it really is fantastic.
