    I received this email from Oboom with the link to their new service - https://www.smoozed.com/howto

    at first i thought it's FFS, then i thought it's VPN, then they say it can download from multiple FFS for free... but no specifics.:snuffy:

    just what the hell is this Smoozed?

    from what i understood it looks very interesting. would like to hear some testimonials, feedback or explanation on what exactly this service does :dunno: :yes:

    Smoozed is a multi-host downloader like Zevera that allows you to download from multiple hosts. Along with this this, they also provide a VPN service that you can use to browse and download anonymously. And it works better than many other similar downloaders IMHO.

    It seems interesting and affordable (€39.95 x 1-year) but... I cannot find any info about available hosts...

    Smoozed is very reasonable and the dl speed is good.it works mainly with ul,rapidgator and turbobit. The downside is there will be a number
    of hours in the day where it will not work on these hosts.I had it last year,hopefully they have improved in consistency.

    "A specific service does not seem to work, what can I do?
    Unfortunately there can be some issues from time to time. Please contact our support team and add a detailed description of the problem."

    Or maybe they haven't.

    As fas as I know, it's not illegal to download anything in germany. What you mean may be the use of p2p clients like emule. You don't get punished because you download something but because you were uploading the stuff you downloaded at the same time. That's a difference.

    You may use it, also in germany - but honestly, a ul.to premium acc will be more useful, cause no limits. period.

    What if you send money to a Turkish guy, and he downloads it for you? Like when Devila Merkel pays turkey to hide a few millions refugees 'underneath' THEIR carpet.

    There is no known case of anyone ever being convicted for downloading from OCHs.

    "Hide under their carpet"? :D You mean Germany should just accept ALL the refugees while all the other european countries send them back home? :)

    They used to have free 30-day trial that everyone kept abusing with email aliases, then they added a cookie so you could start only one trial from one computer, people started removing cookies, they went rage and disabled the trial altogether. It was pretty cool, with decent speeds (can remember getting ~1.2 MB/s downloads and the likes). "The downside is there will be a number of hours in the day where it will not work on these hosts.I had it last year,hopefully they have improved in consistency." This has been appearing after a while, I suppose it's the file hosters who found out about them and try to prevent Smoozed from working. I get that, they want you to buy their premium account so they get the money.

    I wouldn't trust it. Oboom has messed people over multiple times with false promises and constant lies. Can't see how this service would be any different. You would be better off buying from a site like Real-Debird wich also has a service that downloads torrents for you and lets you stream (For video Files) or download direct from them so you don't expose your IP. I've tried a lot and always find my self going back to them.

    It's almost a miracle these companies last this long, doing what they do.
    Uploaded , o boom, and many others, are lucky to exist in Switzerland, where the copyright laws are quite floppy, regarding internet. Anyone can download a file, a movie, etc, and keep it, as long as the guy doesn't start sharing and uploading it.

    As long as 'it's someone else who is uploading the file, the innocent Downloader can only download it BECAUSE the evil uploaded has uploaded it', everything is fine.

    If we could make some kind of analogy, it could be:

    'Only the first man who will abuse and rape a 8yo girl can be called paedophile. If 4 or 5 other guys do the same thing, they won't be guilty, because it only happened because of the 1st guy'.

    These file hosting websites advertise their services as a 'cloud that will last forever', when everybody knows 99.999% of the files are Warez files. It must be a nightmare for the copyright owners, who must be doing those dmca reports in order to get some files removed.

    Everybody knows what these file hosts are for. Why doesn't Google lock all links? Why don't all the ISP's filter all the ...uploaded..., net file. .., links, as everybody knows all those files aren't legal ?

    As it is today, a file isn't considered breaking a copyright UNTIL someone fills up a dmca. It's like ALL files are OK, until someone says they aren't. What if ALL the files weren't legal UNTIL someone says they are?

    Uploaded , oboom, etc, surely benefit from being located in a tax heaven. Because those billions copyrighted files don't belong to any swiss company, nobody gives a fuuk. But if someone tries to download a Swiss app, suddenly, laws, ISP's, copyrighters, everybody will wake up, and suddenly, piracy will be 'a bad thing'. Lol @ the classic hypocrisy.

    This thread isn't about piracy and as far as I know there is no proof showing 99% of free file sharing uploads are purely warez.
    Going back to topic: I know some French alternatives which are pretty good and reasonably priced compared to something like Zevera. some of you may be familiar with RealDebrid and AllDebrid.

    Are you sick?

    How can we talk about a file hosting service, that hosts billions of Warez files, movies, etc etc, without using the word 'piracy' ?
    Please tell me another service on Internet, where people GET PAID to upload and share links to files hosted on their servers.... that IS 100% LEGAL ?

    Of course, many here are happy these hosting services do exist. But come on, this is like Panama and other tax havens... how can they exist, when EVERYBODY knows what they are doing..?
    How can uploaded.net, or many others exist, when, I, you, everybody in here, the whole planet and dogs KNOW they exist to allow people share and download stuff, get paid, and buy subscriptions...? Copyright owners must go crazy, with the laws: someone shares my files or apps, someone gets paid to share them, others pay to download them...and I (if I'm the owner) MUST prove, lose time, etc, to tell the world 'those AR MY files'. Crazy.

    Yeah, special debrid-like services had to be created specially for France. Any service that costs more than 1 euro PER MONTH, that doesn't allow downloading AT LEAST 1TB of data from 150 file hosters, 24 hours a day, at 150-250 MB/s , with 0.1 seconds wait between each file, is A BAD SERVICE.

    Today, there must be some new debrid services in France that cost 30 CTS for 6 months, with 50TB of traffic, 400mb/s speeds, 250 hosts, THAT OFFERS 10 years of cloud storage (300Gb) , an iPad 128Gb, a dishwasher, a cabasse 7.1 speakers system with a Denon amplifier and Blu-ray , a trip to Martinique for 24 people and 4 weeks, a 12 month subscription for Mj tutoriels, and a 75" 4K TV.

    Because 30 cts are 30 cts ! Who said life wasn't tough?

    Now, back to off topic.

    I've just bought a SMOOZED Premium Account today and it really is a fraud. Works OK with OBOOM, yes, but is unable to downloading from RAPIDGATOR or NITROFLARE so not useful at all. https://i.imgur.com/lTZv6T8.png As Multihoster is a f.... fail.
