You could be downloading the torrent itself, or your plugins aren't installed properly, or you might even have downloaded a non FLAC show... :)

If you want I could help you with this. My E-mail: queensearch@hotmail.com Prolly gonna work best over MSN-messenger.

Hi Richard, I have tried to download the BT's for different files you have shared on the home page. It seems I have done that correctly then proceded to DL the concert. Everything seems to have loaded in correctly. I have the BT file saved and showing in the main file I put it in. And I also have Dl'd the concert properly. That fole is saved as well. But it will not open to play it. Windows Media Player, Real Player, & Quicktime Player will not recognise it. What am I doing wrong? Please advise.
Thank you, Steve

Flac files do not play in MediaPlayer, RealPlayer or QuickTime etc. You need a Flac player.

The above link, provided earlier in this thread by YourValentine should be helpful (it helped me anyway).

Maybe I'm somewhat naiive when it comes to bittorent files...but why does it take so long to download before using encoding?

I'm now downloading my first bittorent file with BT Bit Tornado and will then use Flac Frontend to decode files. Is this right?

Any help or reassurance would be welcome.

It's very frustrating isn't it? You have to be patient unless you can get them on mp3's.

I have a question....when I'm through downloading a Torent file, do I have to keep the window open or just keep the file in my hard drive in order to keep others from losing their DL opportunity. I'm new to this and I'm still learning......

Hi, I'm sorry to sound a bit thick, but last night I downloaded my first file via a torrent, using eDonkey as my client. According to the torrent window, I have downloaded 100% of the file, but I can see no way of opening the file itself, as I was never asked where I would like to save it. I thought it might be in my eDonkey downloads file, but alas, no sign. Any ideas?
Cheers

Go to "start" then "search" then "all files and folders" and type in a part of the filename you can remember. It should locate the file for you so that you can open it. I hope this answers your question.

Help me PLS:
I have tried to use bittorent with some links I found on this site. When I tried it says that I'm not authorized to download. I use the same name and password I see in my profile here (I even used clipboard to make sure it's the same) and after # tries I allways get 401 / Unauthorized. What am I doing wrong?

I've asked Bewley for permission to quote the following FAQ from www.savagejaw.co.uk (the Bowie download site) forum located at http://zic.proboards10.com/index.cgi?board=obtsj&action=display&num=1084006517 . I hope this helps some people.

------------------------------
I am collecting, posting, and attempting to answer some of the questions I have seen on the various forums and torrent comments. Please consider this as an addendum to the FAQ found at the Savage Jaw torrent. I hope that this posting will provide some additional information for those new to torrents.

------------------------------
Q: Home many torrents can I leech (download) or seed (upload) at one time?

A: This all depends on your connection speed. A normal cable/ADSL connection can not handle much more than one or two downloads at a time without bogging down. The recommended approach is to focus on a single torrent for a day or two and then move on to the next. By all means, do not attempt to seed or download four or five torrents at a time unless you have the bandwidth (fiber, T1, etc) to handle it!

------------------------------
Q: How long should I keep my client open after download?

A: There is no "set" rule for the length of time. People interested in keeping the torrent going will try to keep their window open until reaching a ratio of at least 1:1 (same amount uploaded as downloaded). Often, this is not possible as the torrent will die out (there are no more downloaders) before a 1:1 ratio is met. If this happens, simply try to make up the ratio on the next torrent downloaded, or better yet, see if there is an old torrent you can re-join to help out (both the downlaoders and your ratio!).

Do not forget, your upload to download ratio is "public knowledge", and on some sites, the administrators may ban your IP address if they perceive you to be a leecher who is downloading and then running. In addition, many torrents are "policed" by users who will report this activity and alert admins of this behavior. Remember, torrents are a "community" effort and if you do not wish to give as much as you receive, then you run the risk of exclusion from future downloads!

------------------------------
Q: I have xxx speed connection, but I am downloading very slowly. Why?

A: There could be a number of reasons for this. Since you are downloading with a group of people, it is possible your connection is faster than the others in the torrent and they are not able to provide you with data fast enough. The people seeding the torrent may be leeching or seeding elsewhere, thus slowing you down. You could be experiencing line problems or the seeders may be focusing on other downloaders with a greater percentage complete (thus attempting to make more seeds) at the moment. So there are a number of things to consider when looking at overall download speed.

Can you do anything about it? Possibly.

Download speeds are only 1/2 of the equation when participating in a torrent – upload speed is very important too. To better configure your client, you need to know your upstream (upload) speed. Most ADSL and cable connections have a much slower upstream speed than downstream speed. If you know your upstream speed, simply divide that number by 8 to determine your maximum speed in Kb/s. For example, a 256K upstream speed equates to a total of 32 Kb/s. If you do not know your upstream speed, then set your client to “Unlimited” and join a busy torrent. Simply monitor your speed… You should get an idea of your Kb/s after 15 minutes or so.

Once you have determined your Kb/s, it is time to configure your BT client. If you are looking to share as much as possible during a download, then set your client to 80% or more of your maximum download speed. If you plan to download quickly and then upload for a while afterwards, you may want to set your download speed to roughly 50% while leeching and then 100% while see

Hi,

I use Norton internet security 2004. I just let bittorrent connect on all ports.

Richard


Because I'm running a firewall, sometimes the light on Bittornado stays yellow and speeds are slower. I'm currently trying to download a torrent off another website which says there are seeds and peers, but when I connect I get no download/upload speed and the light remains red. How do I let the firewall allow bittorrent through all ports?

How exactly do you seed something? Because I've tried but it always says it's leeching again, the only time I can seed anything is immediately after I've finished a download and I don't close it.

...quando avrai capito come funziona vai invece qui...

http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=507693

ti traduco le istruzioni che ha postato Richard Orchard.
-----------

COME CREARE I file .torrent:
E' molto semplice. Io uso un programma chiamato MakeTorrent
http://krypt.dyndns.org:81/torrent/maketorrent/index.phtml)

l'indirizzo che devi usare per creare i tuoi torrent (va' inserito in MakeTorrent) e'
http://queenzone.no-ip.com:6969/announce

Ulteriori informazioni... etc. etc... FAQ page (ma in inglese)

COME CARICARE IL TUO TORRENT FILE SU QUEENZONE.COM TRACKER:
Vai al seguente indirizzo per caricare il tuo .torrent file sul tracker di queenzone.com
http://queenzone.no-ip.com:6969/upload.html

INIZIA A CONDIVIDERE IL TUO TORRENT (tu sei il SEEDER originale ed all'inizio unico):
Ora che il torrent e' caricato sul tracker, tu devi iniziare a condividere il tuo file. Questo significa che devi aprire (lanciare) il tuo torrent nel client che hai deciso di usare (ce ne sono decine tra cui scegliere, uno dei piu' semplici e' BitTornado http://www.bittornado.com/).
Visto che sei tu che offri il file (seeder), puoi solo inviare parti di esso ad altre persone (devi mantenere aperto il tuo client perlomeno fino a che non vedi che alcuni utenti collegati a te hanno finito di completare lo scaricamento.)

FAI SAPERE AGLI ALTRI DI QUEENZONE.COM CHE IL TUO FILE E' A DISPOSIZIONE
Dopo che hai caricato il torrent sul tracker e che sei pronto a condividere con il client aperto vai al "Sharing The Music" forum di Queenzone.com e posta un nuovo topic. Il titolo dovrebbe rappresentare il contenuto del file (ad esempio ANNOUNCE: Expo 92 - Guitar legend DVD video).
Aggiungi nel "corpo" del post tutte le informazioni necessarie come l'elenco dei brani, la sorgente originale, il posto del concerto, la citta', etc.
In fondo al "form" (prima di postarlo) c'e' l'opzione di caricare un file. Clicca su "BROWSE" e seleziona il tuo .torrent file (ovviamente sul tuo computer).
Postando questo "new topic" permetterai alla gente di scaricare il tuo .torrent file, e questo (tramite il tracker) li mettera' in contatto con i files che tu hai preparato sul tuo PC (e solo quelli)

e' tutto ...buon divertimento

When I´m seeding a torrent in ABC, after a while it stops seeding and shows just ´completed´. When I press ´resume seeding´ it often starts uploading right away. Problem is that when I go to bed and want to do my good deed by seeding overnight it just does so for an hour or so. I can´t seem to work out why...Anyone?
