    I generally use Azureus or btdownloadcurses.py on Linux. Neither gives me trouble.

    This torrent I am downloading on an Xbox w/ btdownloadcurses.py, and it is working just fine.

    Anyone have a HTTP Link for that, or no?

    Thanks.
    If there are 5 people with the seed, but nobody is downloading, perhaps nobody is connectable. If you are a client, try making yourself connectable so that non-connectable seeders can get to you.

    We also discussed the connection/non-connection seeding here a little bit.

    [Added content:]
    After checking this out, out of the 5 seeders online when you wrote your reply, none are "connectable" and neither are you. Only one new seeder that *is* connectable came online a bit ago that is connectable, and I got word they won't be on very long since they have exceeded their throughput allocation this month.

    Make yourself connectable and you will probably have 5 seeders looking to share only to you, since you appear to be the only user downloading ATM.

    thanks man.. but I can't take all the credit for it.. Flea turned me onto BitComet after hearing me bitch about every other client out there. But I am glad I could help you out :)

    ...
    Selected video codec: [indeo5ds] vfm:dshow (Intel Indeo 5)
    Clip of some guy almost falling off of a bullet bike but somehow getting back on.

    Here is an md5sum so you can check if the problem is a fscked up download or not.

    A google search reveals that it is a motorcycle clip, and the .avi version (the original is WMV?) is corrupted for most people. I couldn't find enough information to definitively state which brand of codec properly plays the file, but you can find other copies of video that do work.

    so i've been going through the clips from the filler material (and editing / cleaning up / reencoding a lot of them... for instance, last night i finished converting all of the WMVs to a proper format) and i've found one clip that doesn't seem to be anything, at least when i try to play it. amhangon.avi (482 KB for me) just comes up as a very small size clip of black screen and a band of static. does it play for anyone else? if it were "static" at the top of the screen i might have thought it was a clever line 21 hack of closed captioning material... but this is at the bottom of the screen.

    Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean by "fully" green, but can you telnet into the appropriate port from the outside world? Perhaps netstat the client machine and make sure that the open port is the one you expect?

    i may have to try out a new client. after upgrading my firewall, bittornado never goes to a fully green light. i have the proper ports open, and things always worked before... but now for some reason it's like i'm not in "full connection" mode. i can still send data out to other peers... but not 100% of them. right now it shows a single peer connected who is not yet complete but he's not pulling any data from me. odd. i'll give bitcomet a shot.

    Siviak, you rock. I tried out BitComet last night and it is *much* better than the others I've tried.. still need to give Azureus a shot.

    Last night I imported the torrent and let it finish downloading. Even though BitTornado said the torrent was completed, it was wrong. I have witnessed this on a couple other torrents as well.

    I let the torrent run all night and averaged 60up with nearly 1.8GB pulled in total. I guess there are folks still downloading..

    I rarely ever use bittorrent, I had to install to download the package. Ive only used 3 apps, and the one I used before, and used again was Azureus which can be downloaded from sourceforge.

    I havent seen any problems with it, but I dont use it enough to experience them most likely.

    I use BitComet... and it is the only torrent client that doesn't make me want to claw my eyes out

    Nothing in place still. Posting it publically (and indexed by search engines), in my experience, would require significantly more resources than what I have on hand. One of our seeders with 1.2TB/mo xfer has mentioned posting it on a webserver at one point, but other than that, there's not a lot I can do (being the same reason this was posted using bittorrent).

    On that same note, my tracker shows about 90 downloads so far meaning over 300GB of total transfer since the announcement of this torrent. That's definately bandwidth my server wouldn't of been able to handle on it's own. There's one client left (downloading at about 200kB/s) currently, and my upload speed is down at half the speed I capped it at meaning we are no longer at full load.

    If the collection of filler was to be posted on a webserver, we'd still have at least another 100GB transfer within a couple weeks of it being posted by my estimate. It's not as if all these clips were gathered from off the internet in the first place (with the exception of a few clips), I don't see much need to post it all again using a different protocol. If someone has the resources, and is willing to post it all, I have no complaints, but it's not going to be me.

    have you ever tried the original BitTornado (or the Shad0w experimental build of that client)? very few features but it rocks and rolls with minimal errors and resource drain, in my experience. (that's on win32 boxes, tho... i don't tend to torrent from nix workstations much)
    I've been using Shad0w's experimental client back before it was renamed BitTornado (they are the same). I've always run my torrents using the btdownloadcurses.py script running inside screen on linux, see below for only complaint. There was a point where the btlaunchmanycurses.py has come in handy when I have the upload and need to catch up on some torrents. I could see it coming in very handy for a lot of people here that are still putting up with Azureus when you honestly don't need to sit and watch the progress in that much detail in exchange for massive amounts of system resources. The btlaunchmanycurses.py script has enough options to keep most Azureus users happy. It'll sit and watch a folder for new torrent files, when it sees them, it'll start them up, and when you delete a torrent file, it'll stop the torrent.

    the current BitTornado I am using, while better than other clients so far, has random fatal errors and hogs resources like a mofo.
    I get the same random fatal errors, but have always been happy with the resources. As for the random crashing, I'm using 0.3.12 and would move back to 0.3.7 (the supposedly stable version), but it hasn't crashed enough to where it's really gotten in my way.
