Three Western Movies that You Can Watch Today for Free

Western films are the epic movies of America. According to FilmSite, “Westerns are the major defining genre of the American film industry, a nostalgic eulogy to the early days of the expansive, untamed American frontier (the borderline between civilization and the wilderness). They are one of the oldest, most enduring and flexible genres and one of the most characteristically American genres in their mythic origins”.

A lot of western movies are now free to watch online.

Enjoy!

  1. HellTown

    Born to the West (reissue title Hell Town) is a 1937 American Western film starring John Wayne, Marsha Hunt, and John Mack Brown. Filmed in black and white and based upon a Zane Grey novel, the movie incorporates footage from an earlier and higher budgeted silent version, a common practice of the era. The picture features fast chases, gun-fights, unusual poker gambling, and peppy light dialogue for the love interest.

  2. McLintock!

    McLintock! is a 1963 American western with strongly comedic elements, starring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara, directed by Andrew V. McLaglen. The film co-stars Wayne’s son Patrick Wayne, Stefanie Powers, Jack Kruschen, Chill Wills and Yvonne DeCarlo (billed as “Special Guest Star”). Loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, the project was filmed in Technicolor and Panavision and produced by Wayne’s company Batjac Productions.

  3. The Outlaw

    The Outlaw is a 1943 American Western film, directed by Howard Hughes and starring Jack Buetel, Jane Russell, Thomas Mitchell, and Walter Huston. Hughes also produced the film, while Howard Hawks served as an uncredited co-director. The film is notable as Russell’s breakthrough role, turning the young actress into a sex symbol and a Hollywood icon. Later advertising billed Russell as the sole star.

What is the difference between FrostWire Basic and FrostWire Plus for Android?

FrostWire Basic and FrostWire Plus are identical in all respects besides the basic version of FrostWire not having YouTube & SoundCloud Search and Download capabilities.

FrostWire Plus

FrostWire Basic

YouTube & SoundCloud

Search and Download

 

As of April 2015 we were told we have to remove YouTube from the list of our search engines and download sources to comply with Google Play Rules. If we wouldn’t, we would no longer be able to be listed on Google Play. Shortly after, we were told to remove SoundCloud as well.

Because of a great user outcry, we choose to keep distributing FrostWire on Google Play and remove YouTube & SoundCloud entirely, effectively making the FrostWire Basic a BitTorrent Client only, but provide the more advanced users with an option use the fully featured, yet still free FrostWire Plus version.

libtorrent team announces 1.1 release

Arvid Norberg, lead developer of libtorrent, the library FrostWire’s jlibtorrent wraps into has announced today a 1.1 release. In the paragraph’s below Arvid’s words from the BitTorrent developer mailing list.

You can get it here:

https://github.com/arvidn/libtorrent/releases/tag/libtorrent-1_1

HIGHLIGHTS

Since this major release has been in the works for quite a while, the
changelog is too long to include here. Instead, here are the highlights:

* disk I/O and piece hashing can now be done in multiple threads.

* The internal allocation of alerts is a lot more efficient now, and
requires alerts to be owned by libtorrent. The pop_alerts() function that
returns a container of raw alert pointers are owned by libtorrent and will
be freed by the subsequent call to pop_alerts(). The previous alert popping
functions will still be around when deprecated functions are enabled, but
they will cause more copying and likely have worse performance.

* experimental support for BEP 38 (mutable torrents). Basically this will
attempt to merge torrents that share files.

* there’s a new bdecoder which is a lot quicker than the previous
lazy_bdecode() ( http://blog.libtorrent.org/2015/03/bdecode-parsers )

* improved shutdown delay by canceling unimportant DNS lookups. (stalled
DNS lookups for tracker announces can cause significant delays when
shutting down).

* verbose logging is now done through alerts (which is possible now since
alerts are a lot more efficient). This means a production build can have
logging enabled at compile time, and enabled on demand when trouble
shooting.

* SSL over uTP connections is now supported.

* settings of various kinds have moved into the session_settings structure
(proxy settings, listen-interface, protocol encryption). A session can now
be constructed from a session_settings object, allowing for single-phase
initialization. (no more setting settings on the session object right after
constructing it).

* support for part-files. This is still a bit rough on the edges. Files
with priority 0, will have their pieces stored away in a single
consolidated file of partial pieces.

* there’s been countless scalability improvements. It’s possible to seed
tens of thousands, if not hundred of thousands torrents in a single
libtorrent instance. (Just make sure to use efficient APIs when interacting
with such instance, to not make yourself the bottleneck).
http://blog.libtorrent.org/2011/11/scalable-interfaces
http://blog.libtorrent.org/2012/01/seeding-a-million-torrents/

* A lot of build configuration defines have been removed or moved out of
public headers (to not affect ABI), as ABI incompatibility caused by
configuration options is a common mistake.

API compatibility:

I’ve tried hard to keep this release API compatible the the 1.0.x series.
If you find a function that behaves differently in 1.1, please file a
ticket on github or bring it up on the mailing list. There are definitely
cases where using deprecated APIs will have worse performance now (because
they’re implemented on top of a new, higher performance, API).

There are some noteworthy exceptions though, that were hard to keep
compatible:

* Instead of using boost.intrusive_ptr<> for torrent_info objects,
boost.shared_ptr<> is used. (this is a step in the direction of adopting
std::shared_ptr).

* the storage_interface has changed, to support multi-threaded disk I/O.

* the declarations of some functions and classes have been factored out
into their own header files. You may find yourself having to include some
new headers.

Deprecated features:

* deprecated adding torrents by URL. This feature introduced a lot of
complexity and does not fit well at the libtorrent layer. It’s often easier
for a client to download a .torrent file anyway, and then add it to
libtorrent.

* sparse-regions feature was removed. This was a feature that attempted to
keep the number of extents per file low, to circumvent a bug in early
versions of vista.

* deprecated RSS feeds. The API for RSS feeds was awkward and did not fit
well with libtorrent. It’s likely easier for clients to use a separate RSS
feed library.

* deprecated lazy_bdecode and lazy_entry, as it’s been replaced by
bdecode() and bdecode_node.

* deprecated time functions in favor of using boost.chrono.

* compact file allocation was removed (it was deprecated in 1.0 iirc)

* deprecated explicit cache feature

* deprecated resolve-countries feature (not in scope of libtorrent, can
easily be done by client)

* deprecated set_tracker_login() (to use basic auth with http trackers).

* deprecated session_status, cache_status and session::status() (use
post_session_stats() instead)

An Easy Way to Protect Your Privacy Online!

Get a VPN!

Privacy is a Human Right and you must protect it. When you connect to the Internet, corporations and even your internet service provider can spy you. If you want to protect yourself and not let any stranger see your personal information, you need a VPN.

internet-privacy

A VPN will secure your connection, no matter where you are. With a VPN whatever you do online is going to be transferred encrypted. That includes your internet searches, your personal & identifiable information you type into websites, your emails and private messages and the files you download or share. Yes, you also can use a VPN for FrostWire.

How does it work?

You have to sign up for a VPN service and obtain a username and password for authentication. You then download and install a very tiny piece of software or an app that, upon a sign in, lets you choose a location of where you want to connect to. Your device then connects to servers in that location and those servers then pass on the connection to wherever you wanted to go. Your destination website will see your connection as coming from the VPN servers and your identity will not be revealed. More here.

Does FrostWire work with VPN services?

FrostWire, both for Android and for Desktop, works seamlessly with most VPN services. This means that however you connect to the internet – with or without the VPN – FrostWire will still search and download without any adjustment in settings on your part.
