LimeWire is a free peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) client program that runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and other operating systems supported by the Java software platform. Although LimeWire still announced that it is going to return as a "subscription-based ecosystem" that will give users an access to the entire resources database via their desktop, devices, and in the cloud completely and instantly, it remains unknown how long LimeWire should take to be back. With this in mind, many users are now busy searching for a sound alternative.
According to some users' feedback, here, I have compiled some available alternatives for you:
1. LimeWire Pirate Edition
The easiest and maybe the best alternative program could be LimeWire Pirate Edition. Pirate Edition was made by a secret developing group based on the LimeWire 5.6 beta right after LimeWire was shut down. It is almost the same with and even better than LimeWire as it activated the entire PRO features and stripped all the spyware and adware. Both Mac version and Windows version are provided.
BitTorrent is a famous P2P downloader that breaks files down into smaller pieces so that thousands of users can share the same file at the same time. This function is extremely useful for trading large video files. Compared with other file-transfer protocols, "BitTorrent is designed to work better as the number of people interested in a certain file increases. BitTorrent can support about a thousand times as many downloads as HTTP".
You would not be strange to eMule, would you? eMule is a file-sharing client which is open source but under the restrictions of the GPL License. eMule is one of the biggest and most reliable P2P file-sharing clients around the world.
4.Burn LimeWire video to DVD
If you can still connect to LimeWire somehow, you can stay up the whole night and download as many videos, movies, music, etc., and burn them to DVD(on Mac) via a professional third party Mac DVD Maker. Just kidding!
With DVD maker mac you will find that burn Fujifilm FinePix to DVD, burn mp4 to dvd mac, avi to dvd mac, olympus stylus tough to dvd mac are easy things. Just enjoy!
