Buy VPN - Never trust a VPN Provider that doesn't take Bitcoin
Welcome everybody to the new FrostWire forums.

Expect a bit of breakage the following days as we adjust to this new platform.

We thank you for your patience.

I just updated to 5.0.7 and for some reason the categories are gone (audio, video, etc). It's only Torrents that i can search. Any ideas?


  • FrostWire 5 does away with the Gnutella network in favour of torrents (which are frequently full albums of songs rather than individual files). As more and more users transition to FrostWire 5 you should find a better selection of files from other users.
  • Perhaps it should be pointed out that Torrents have been around for years and Frostwire is just another client joining a huge network, so I'm not sure it will have that much effect on what is available. Indeed it will have very little unless Frostwire users learn that to freeload off Bit Torrent is not behaviour that the bit torrent community will accept with good grace,. Frostwire does how ever have the Share a file with a friend which is a neat and VERY new idea and may be what Aubrey is referring to although to my knowledge it was tested for about two days if that before being released in the public 5.0.7 release, and so, in reality, we have no idea whatsoever how it works in the real world.

    A user guide for Frostwire 5 is to be found at
