eMule at a GlanceeMule is easy to install with its quick start wizard; however, it may intimidate beginners when it asks for some networking information upfront, which you can either enter or bypass. Upon launch, eMule displays the Server tab with a list of servers to connect to, where finding content is as easy as typing the filename, and adding search conditions. You can chat with friends across the globe using eMule’s built in IRC client. And the Share Files tab lets you keep track of your shares, including requests, accepted uploads, and transferred files.
Product DetailsHere is a detailed breakdown of eMule’s features:
- Kad network support—eMule supports the Kad network using the Kademlia protocol, which acts as a distributed system.
- Queue and credit system—You get the files you want with rewards for your uploads to the network.
- Intelligent corruption control—eMule checks files for corruption during downloads to confirm that they are error free, helping speed up the correction of corrupted chunks so that they do not need to be re-downloaded entirely.
- Simultaneous downloads with preview—You can start a series of downloads and preview videos while they are in progress.
- Built in Web services/server—You can quickly access local, global, and Web-based servers (Jigle and Filedonkey) across the Internet.
- Advanced search—eMule provides Boolean searches, adding flexibility to your inquiries.
- Messaging system—You can chat with friends across the globe using eMule’s built in IRC client. And a friend’ list lets you see when friends are online.
