While the pressure on file-sharing keeps increasing, majority of file-sharers are constantly searching for safer ways of acquiring the content. Recently a new application appeared that seemed to be too perfect to be true. New client called Mulve features a huge database of tracks and delivers content to the users’ PCs at incredible speeds at the mere click of a button, at the same time asking for no uploading, which means the users can’t be caught for infringing. The only question is what’s the downside of this miracle?
The client comes in a package of 2Mb and after being unzipped turns into a single .exe file requiring no installation. In addition, the archive contains a text file telling the users how they can donate. Although files of .exe extension are usually suspected of containing malware, almost all virus scanners showed no danger in the file.
The client was developed by two musicians willing to create a program that would allow anybody to find any track with a mere click of a button. While it may sound overstated, the application was tested, and it proved it does works.
Once running the .exe file, you should simply enter a search and will see the results. In fact, queries for almost any track bring up lots of results and usually link to premium quality MP3 files, right up to 320kbps. In addition, download speeds are also impressive.
In fact, it’s not a peer-peer client, such as LimeWire, for example, nor it is BitTorrent-based one. Mulve isn’t a Google-search type program extracting MP3s off open directories online either. Actually, it doesn’t involve any sharing at all, so it seemed like the files were coming straight from the servers hosting them. It means that individuals downloading with this client can’t be traced down by anti-P2P outfits, because they don’t do any uploading.
The developers confirmed that their work wasn’t a P2P client, nor it searched open FTPs. Instead, it directly connected to the servers abroad hosting music. Although the creators wouldn’t reveal the names of the servers, a few tests with the help of Wireshark showed that the results were originating from Russian servers connected to the largest social network in the country, InTouch (“vKontakte”), which really features lots of rare tracks which are only allowed to be shared between the registered users of the network to be listened online and couldn’t be downloaded.

|its still far away to beat what.cd|
|Thanks SaM gonna have to check'em out.|
|Where do you find this program. What is the full name of it.|
|been using it for a week now. works great, as advertised. http://mulve.com only provides single tracks, no albums.|
|Hmmm... Just call me careful.. Think I'll wait and watch before jumping like everyone else is doing.|
As the article says may be too good to be true? I'll wait for the other shoe to drop..
Any one take this program apart and see what the code is and if it is safe? It doesn't open a door into your computer for malware to come in?
Remember many malware package are delivered via mp3 files (music).. Remember the LOVE BUG...
|I have just downloaded this and its by far the best thing to download music iv ever come across, its realy fast search and download speed put it above any torrent. |
The downside to this is obviously not been able to download whole albums but in most cases it would be quicker to get up a track list of a cd u want and dl each song on this, i downloaded 17 songs in under 2mins
Thanks sam for posting this article, if it wasent for you id still be downloading music of torrents or youtube rippers :D
now all we need is an app like this for videos, games and applications than never again will we have to wait ages for someone to see :D
