Does anyone remember Audio Galaxy when it was free to use? Does Bittorent work in the same way?

Another question... Howcome sometimes a torrent is downloading and uploading in a reasonable pace, but when you look at the current seed/peer it can´t find any???

I didn't know where to ask this, so I hope I'm in the right place -

I've downloaded a few bit torrents recently - never did that before and jumped in.

Yesterday someone asked to have a file seeded - Freddie's Loves. I opened the file and clicked seed indefinitely but clearly that's not the correct way to do it since uploading remained a 0%.

Please help me. I don't want to be a leech, but I can't figure out how to share what I've received.

Seeding is easy - simply open your torrent and point it at your (completed) file, just like you did when the file was incomplete and you were downloading. You will see zero download speed (normal, since you are not downloading anything) but hopefully you will see an upload speed from people who are downloading your file. You are now seeding.

Depending on the BT client you are using you might have to make some adjustments to the settings - if you have put "seed indefinitely" (in terms of time)this is fine. In terms of volume you might want to set your client to 500% (or even more).

Simple, isn't it? Hope this is of help.

Thanks so much! You do make it sound easy - easier than I thought it was. :-)

My last reply wound up on top - hope this goes where it should...

Just wanted to thank you for your help. I've been seeding - giving not just taking! Thanks!

Hi ! I've got a question, just about FLAC, how can I convert Flac into MP3 or at least .wav ? Thanx for your answers !

You can convert FLAC into .wav with the programme
http://flac.sourceforge.net/
which you can find in a previous post on this page. To convert to mp3, Nero can do it but I'm sure there are lots of other programmes that can do so as well.

Is there any specific version of BitTorrent that would download these concerts or would any version? (I'm completley new to the whole BitTorrent thing)

The tracker is offline - please check the other thread.


I do not want any google ads here.

I have a seeding question.

I just finished downloading the Vienna and Caracas DVD torrents and am now seeding both. What I don't understand is why, if there are peers for each, one uploads at 34KBs while the other only goes at either 1KB or none at all. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to balance that out? No matter what 'maximum upload rate' I enter, one file out-runs the other.

Thanx

I'm having a problem seeding the LK thing. When I open up the BitTornado program and start seeding, whether there are people there or not, the light just stays red. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Maybe remove the apostrophe's from your song titles, and create another torrent with a slightly different name. that has helped me once or twice.

Well, there's no apostrophes to worry about but there is the name thing. I'll try it. Thanks.
