Audio Galaxy

I use Audio Galaxy to share my music and download new stuff. It really Rocks. You can download it here. Give it a try... you wont use anything else no more, when talking 'bout MP3.

Cheerss,
CathodioN.

Thumbs up Limewire/Audiogalaxy

I use audiogalaxy for music (www.audiogalaxy.com) and limewire for vids (www.limewire.com)

However limewire and the gnutella network I have found to be slower than kazaa etc.

Limey. Once I got it configured LimeWire seemed to be pretty fast for me. Doesn't really touch my system resources, but I don't have a super slow system either. Gonna check out Audiogalaxy. What the hell is EDONKEY? HA HA HA HA

How can you make audio galaxy run? My just delete my account.txt (?) every time I try to connect (and of course tell me I don't have the file...)

Is there are another sharing-music tool?

You need to put your user name in the first line of account.txt not email(as stated in the install instruction)

then it should work

Try http://www.edonkey2000.com/downloads.html
and don't forget to update the server.met file.

I use it with Linux and Windows and it works really fine for Vids and Progs
