Tweak Napster with Wrapster
Introduction to Wrapster
As you can see, the ability of Napster to bring people together for the sharing of music has created a network of new enthusiasts and listeners. Imagine if the same ideas could be applied to other types of files including movies, pictures and software. That time has come with the introduction of Wrapster.
Step 1: What is Wrapster?
Wrapster is a plug-in for the Napster Program which allows you to use Napster to find files other than those with the ".mp3" extension.
Step 2: How does it move files?
Wrapster utilizes the Napster Network to act as a central meeting place and conduit for the flow of data. This network has lots of infrastructure, so no expensive build out is required for Wrapster.
Step 3: What’s the effect on networks?
Many of the college computer networks are banning Napster’s use because it is using the majority of bandwidth. With huge files such as video (exponentially larger than music) now moving around on Napster, the problem will only get worse.
Step 4: How does Wrapster work?
Wrapster tricks the Napster server into thinking these files are MP3s by "wrapping" it in a disguised package. The file is moved and works just fine on the recipient’s computer.
Step 5: Is Wrapster legal?
Wrapster is a perfectly legal plug-in to the Napster program. The company officially does not condone its use due to the potential liability for moving copyrighted material (such as movies). However, using it is fine, and that knock on your door may be your Network administrator complaining about excessive bandwidth usage, not the police.
