    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 :pullhair:
    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.

    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.

    Private trackers only allow a specific number of clients, most of them support mu,bit,q,deluge etc.Others are banned.

    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.
