Perhaps the best for Windows IMO.
Many have been using it for a long time
Yeah i am using for past 7 months now. But i am still using it as regular torrent client. Can someone post features whihc stands out from the rest of the similar apps and how to use them use them?
How is it better than utorrent 2.2? And does it have any mobile app?
Don't know how the 2.2 version is but i have used utorrents, and I hated it cause of the irritating ads. Often some Rummy game
Tixati and deluge has no ads. People on this forum suggested me these two.
Was looking for new Torrent Clients. But dissapointed by Tixati's UI, settled for qBittorent!!
Man 2.2 has no ads. It is the simplest torrent client that you can ask for. Will be Tixati a try.
Vouch for Tixati.ONly problem is that it is banned in many private trackers.Now I am using Qbittorrent.
Tixati and qBittorrent can do sequential downloads. I can start watching a movie the moment sufficient amount has been downloaded.
So, can uTorrent, but the option is hidden away. I don't know whether uTorrent 2.2 does it or not.
2.2 also does
Also not really hidden away
Where is the option to activate sequential downloading?
[STRIKE]If you can watch video in middle of the download in 2.2 utorrent then it means it is already a sequential download[/STRIKE]
Private trackers only allow a specific number of clients, most of them support mu,bit,q,deluge etc.Others are banned.
are these client paying private trackers to ban other client apps? Any other reason ?
How to activate/enable sequential downloading in 2.2?
well, they say that the useres can hack and change their ratio (Dowload/Upload) if they are using banned clients.
Read this : Sequential downloading is bad - VuzeWik
It's not supported by default
Click with pressed [Shift]+[F2]: Options -> Preferences -> Advanced. change values bt.sequential_download and/or bt.sequential_files to true
Will try that setting and get back to you. Regarding why is it bad, can you explain these points in a layman language?
It threatens to kill smaller swarms due to piece starvation
It severely limits the set of peers interested in each other, thus degrades swarm-wide and local performance
It gets the client into endgame-mode like conditions towards the end of each file, thus slowing down the download
Layman words: Bittorrent is supposed to work with random piece downloads. Not sequential. So, if everyone turns on sequential download for a particular torrent, especially when there are not enough seeds, it might result in really bad download speed performance.
