    usually means the server is down, but it won't stop you from using bitcomet, so let us know if this doesn't resolve in a week or so.

    tracker name column

    What are you talking about? you asked me to remove it and I did, since it's not your topic I can only remove your post, which I did, but I had to explain why it's missing or the whole thread is botched.

    The newst tracker list

    yes, if you add a tracker without registering the torrent and uploading to that tracker first, it will only result in slowing you down and harming the tracker. The tracker's only purpose is to connect you to peers and one tracker can do that job fine, and if that tracker is down, DHT will find you the peers, so it only hurts everyone to copy lists like this into your torrent.

    The newst tracker list

    Adding trackers to a torrent is usually a very bad idea. Unless you are going to register the torrent with all these trackers, you will only spam them with unwanted connection attempts.

    New in Bitcomet 1.53

    This is not a virus, even the name says "trojan" not "virus", they are two different things, but in this case it's not a trojan either, it's simply Installcore, a tool that allows bitcomet to offer you optional software that you can select or decline. As long as it's not abused installcore is a legitimate tool and won't install any malware on your system, but if you want bitcomet without installcore try the link in my signature.

    Bitcomet slow down pc

    Have you tried increasing your disk cache size? The default size is very small to avoid consuming RAM memory that some members may not have available, but it will ease a lot of stress on your hard drive if you dedicate more memory to disk cache and your symptoms sound like it could be caused by a non-responsive disc.

    .mkv is simply a "container" used to hold video/audio files, and are usually already in mpeg4 encoding. If your ps3 won't play the files try copying the video to a new location and change the file name from file.mkv to file.mp4 and see if it plays like that. There may not be a need to convert. If it is necessary to convert (re-encode) the video in order to play on a ps3, then you may want to post this inquiry in the conversion software forum or tech support, as this isn't a bitcomet issue. Once the file is downloaded, bitcomet's job is done. You can also look for another torrent that has video in a ps3 compatible format. Also understand that ps3 is not the ideal player to use as it has digital rights management software embedded that could cause problems. Perhaps getting a digital video player instead? I haven't kept up with which is best this year, but western digital Live TV was a good one that plays virtually anything, and several other products are available that will play mkv and other file formats without conversion. ps3 is good for playing games, not so much as playing video in open source formats like mkv.

    Rather than over writing the file it would be best to First rename the file to something unique so that it's not destroyed. Or better yet make a copy of the file using a new name then you can overwrite the original file. This way you can easily undo the changes should you end up changing the file in such a way that causes unexpected changes to bitcomet. I realize it's too late for you to see the original file now that you've already overwritten it, but for others who are trying to customize the appearance of their bitcomet please remember to make any changes easily reversible.

    Two BUGs in version 1.48, 1.49 and 1.51

    as I am out of town I cannot investigate this, but did alert development who may or may not reply here.

    glad I could help. it's wise to keep a backup of your modified file because if bitcomet ever decides to update the list it will get overwritten.

    for english, edit file "fav_en_us.xml" but you should back it up first in case you need to restore it
