    Torrent Program for Mac
    Hi guys

    Was wondering in your opinion, which is the best bit torrent program for mac. Right now I am using Transmission and it seems pretty cool, but just wondering if there are better ones out there?

    Also DVD Shrink for mac, is there such a thing?

    Azerous (Not sure I spelled that right) always gets high reviews. I myself prefer Tomato Torrent, as well as Transmission.

    I use Azureus for BitTorrent as for DVD Shriking, I never do it, I just tend to watch films on my PC or Pay for them, Yea I know a novel Idea, but I believe it will catch on soon

    Nar joking, all the DVDs I watch are my Brothers.

    I do normally buy DVD's, but ones that I don't perticularly like I burn and lend them to my parents. If I see a movie that I enjoy, 9 times out of 10 I will go out and actually buy it

    But I see your point, it is a novel idea paying for music and movies nowdays isn't it

    i use transmission too. but im also looking for alternative one because in transmission, i cant select the files that i want to download. for the pc i like utorrent because its small and have option to select the files that i want to download. i know azureus can do that but it wont work with my mac/router and was too busy to do troubleshooting.

    I use transmission. It's basic. I hated Azerus because of all the other crap that was in it. I want a torrent client to download torrents. I have my sources to get them from and having to navigate through azerus as opposed to opening tranmission and having it ready to go, is slightly annoying.
