Zudeo: Azureus does video sharing
In its current form, Zudeo is not awe-inspiring. The interface is slick and polished, far moreso than I expected, but having to install a desktop client, though made supremely easy, is still a bit jarring. And even though all of my downloaded videos are conveniently kept in my Library, it still launches an external video player whenever I want to watch one of them. Downloads are blazing fast, however, and for those looking to share videos with a little more resolution might be attracted to Zudeo. According to TechCrunch, Azureus has signed deals with "20 major TV and film studios" to provide free programming, and the company also just got $12 million in funding from Redpoint Ventures and BV Capital, which TechCrunch's Natali Del Conte points out is more than it took to originally finance YouTube.
