Developed by the same creators of BearShare (a popular P2P file sharing tool), BearFlix is a P2P sharing tool designed specifically for videos. If you’re a BearShare user, you’ll be able to use the application in no time. The interface and commands are almost the same with a few tweaks so that it could adapt to video downloads.

But even though you’re not familiar with BearShare, you can still use this application with ease. Like BearShare, you will be required to create an account online which could be done in the application. After signing-up you can use the search tool to locate your preferred videos. The application could connect you to websites that offer free videos wherein you can download them directly from the website. As a P2P tool, videos shared and uploaded by members could be available for download at the same time. The application also offers automatic resume so that you can switch off your computer and continue your download as soon as you are back online.

BearFlix could also be used as a video player. However, the application still relies on the installed video players in your computer for codecs. That means if you don’t have an installed video player that could read H.264, then BearFlix will not be able to read the specific file type.

Although BearFlix is a very impressive application for video file sharing, being limited to videos only is its main disadvantage. Many users still prefer P2P applications that could share more than just videos. On the other hand, this application could greatly compliment your BearShare application.

Gmail is one of the most popular email clients today. Offering more than 7GB of free space to their users, the email client has become the preferred online application by small and large scale businesses worldwide.

But the online application’s capability could even be pushed further with a small application called Gspace. This small application is a Firefox extension (requires updated Firefox browser) and through this tool, you can upload and download data directly to your Gmail account. The application is installed in the browser and could be launched in the tools tab. Gspace is launched in a separate window in the browser. After providing your username and password, you can easily drag and drop the files that you want to your Gmail. The files you want will show up in your email as an attached file. You can also remove files from your email using the same application.

The interface in the browser is very impressive. You’ll be provided with four folders which serve as shortcuts for browser based applications. File Transfer will help you control the files in your Gmail account, Player Mode is for music, Photo Mode for pictures and Gmail Drive if you have multiple Gmail accounts.

Although the application is very impressive, usage of this application should be limited. Google offers Gmail primarily as an email account and not a file transfer protocol or FTP. If you use Gmail too much or transfer more than 1GB of file in one day, your email might be frozen by Google. But this application is very useful if you want to transfer smaller files to your Gmail without accessing your account.
