Am I doing something wrong? Like I tried Book Of Eli and nothing, i get files back that are like 7mb up to 800 that aren't even the movie, tried other movies and same thing, nothing. I was told vuze had a ton of hd content but i can't find a single thing????

I have the same exact issue! Have looked for all sorts of movies and all I get is just some general and search results. For example when I did a search for the movie "an education," I got results for "an" or "education" or just really unrelated things :( What is so great about Vuze really?

I'm going to quote bigfootballer7 here (search for his posts if you wish)

His previous posts have suggested the following:

Hi All,

I recently found this, as I had the exact same problem. Someone was kind enough to post this on another forum.

"Start Vuze, select File->Open->Torrent File... and select the 'Add URL button'

Enter

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:GKDZHHTCKP6R2XRNWYJLRQUYE4VPLEDU

in the box and hit OK.

This will add a download to Vuze that contains search templates - they are contained in files ending in ".vuze".

When it is complete navigate to the resulting files and either double click them to install or use the File->Open->Vuze File to do so."

I hope this helps.

It WORKS!!!!!

That never worked for me. I am not getting any movies at all. I tried Pretty Woman which is a much older movie and even recent ones and neither one has found anything. Am I doing something wrong?

I am having same problem with nee version of Vuze. Search returms 1 or sometimes nothing. I still have older version of Vuze on another laptop and the search return 64 results for Ondine compared to 1 with the new version. I got 169 results for A Single Man compared to 0 under new version. Can someone explain to me why the newer version is not finding files?

Poster has given solution in the Technical under thread titled Torrents. I just followed instructions using the link he provides and have loaded 20 additional search engines including kickass torrents.

Hi I just tried the suggestion of FILE/OPEN TORRENT FILE/ADD URL and put magnet:?xt=urn:btih:GKDZHHTCKP6R2XRNWYJLRQUYE4VPLEDU as suggested below in. I then went to the Vuze Library and found a folder called VUZE Search Templates. I opened this folder and found 4 or 5 entries. I clicked on the first and then clicked the Launch button at the top of the page. The message came back saying this template had been added and would be used in my next search. I did the same with the others. Next time I searched all the movies were back.

Thanks drhet58 & beckyboo! Without your help Vuze would be useless to this newb. All that effort to create this great big app but no simplified step by step instructions for newbs who installed Vuze just to find a movie????

Download Vuze, then go to a torrent site such as ISO hunt.... pirate bay or Demonoid etc... Demonoid is invite only so may be tricky signing up... search for films on there cause there's more of a chance of finding your film as you have 3 torrent sites to choose from, search the torrent you want and if it appears.. click download.torrent/Download this torrent etc. After this, i have Google Chrome so once i click download torrent i have to click it again when it appears at the bottom of the screen, i don't know if it is the same for IE or Mozilla etc.. so try on Google Chrome as it is a faster browser and a lot easier with the download bar feature. once the download bar appears i click the torrent again... and POOF! its on the VUZE library and downloading begins.

Hope i helped x

I did exactly what "becky boo" suggested, which is exactly what I had done with the previous version of Vuze. Like others, the template search engines don't work anymore, and I can' figure out how to download an older version. Any ideas?

There are more working templates to add sites to the meta search and increase search results here:

At default the Vuze meta search only inlcudes Vuze and MiniNova, which will not get decent results.
You need to add torrent search sites to the meta search to get decent results. This link has info to do that:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/vuze-meta-search-templates

The file size feature is a filter of results obtained. If the largest file returned in search results is 500MB, then that is what the file size filter will show.
Get better results after adding the sites and the filter will show larger.
