  1. please specify what version you are using, and a link to a public torrent that can reproduce this bug. Also, is the harddrive a local drive or networked drive?
  2. I haven't done it in years but I did once try this. Unfortunately you often end up getting duplicates. It's pretty common that the first torrent for an episode will get nuked and replaced with a proper or a repack. I found it much more efficient to give it a few hours select the torrent that I want manually but many people do rely on RSS so they can get the torrents without any delay.
  3. If you do get it to complete you will be able to revive the torrent by providing the missing BitTorrent pieces. I know of no other client that is capable of doing this except bitcomet.
  4. Please understand bitcomet is not a torrent client that can download webseeds. It's completely different than anything else on the market and it converts web seeds, HTTP links, FTP links and long-term seedlinks into BitTorrent pieces. It does this so the torrent can be completed from many different sources. I can't say why your torrent is having problems. Your apology is accepted and please enjoy the Forum. If the development team can find a solution I'm sure they will. If you would like to do more investigating try disabling the bitcomet services one at a time and see if you can get the torrent to complete from web seeds alone.
  5. Ps. The behavior you noticed wasting data can be disabled by disabling the services listed in bitcomet options. This will make bitcomet operate like every other bit torrent client. The downside is you will no longer have the ability to complete torrents that are not fully seeded. Unfortunately the cost for this ability sometimes means data is wasted and that cannot be avoided.
  6. Without reading this entire insanely long thread it appears that the answer is obvious. When downloading a torrent using BitTorrent protocol you do not download files you download small pieces of those files. When using web seed you download the entire file even if you only need a small piece of it. This is the only way some torrents can complete. It's really not rocket science. If you have a torrent that consists of a 2GB video file and it will not complete using BitTorrent pieces because some of them are not available you will have to download the entire 2GB video file in order to make the missing BitTorrent pieces. This is not an efficient way to download however it is swarm friendly because after you complete the download bitcomet can then manufacture the missing pieces and share them with the Swarm. If the missing pieces are part of a small file it's not a big deal but in some cases it will result and a lot of unnecessary downloading. Most people agree that it's worth it to be able to complete a download that other torrent clients cannot. It is certainly worth it if you are then able to revive a dead torrent. Now you have a second opinion if you don't like it you don't have to accept it. None of us are obligated to help you and will not continue to tolerate rude Behavior. Please become a positive member of the community and you will be welcome here. If you continue to insult our volunteers you will be removed.
  7. This topic is exactly how not to behave in this forum. This is a community support forum we will not tolerate our volunteers being harassed. If you don't like the advice you are given that does not give you the right to harass the person giving the advice. If you don't like the software nobody is forcing you to use it. No one here is obligated to help you. If you don't like the way bitcomet users are helping you you can email the development team directly. If you continue to harass our members you will be removed from the Forum.
  8. Dear Admin

    Sorry to bother you

    I would really appreciate if you could take a look at this thread

    Thanks in Advance

  9. It would not be possible to be both a virus and a non trusted application. Without knowing the exact detection I can't provide any accurate information but I can tell you that this is indeed a false positive. I suspect you are using the term virus as a slang word to mean malware which is not correct. A virus has to have the ability to self-replicate. Bitcomet is not and to the best of my knowledge has never been infected with any viruses. The software does exactly what it claims to do this has been verified more times than I can count. Each time a new version is released some of the antivirus products will not recognize the new version and if you have the highest security settings it will not whitelist the product until they get lots of complaints or the publisher pays them money. Since bitcomet is free there is no money to pay them. My advice would be to avoid Symantec products.
  10. Without an open listening port you will not receive any peer initiated requests. The only way you can connect to a peer is if you initiate the connection and most peers in a swarm already have the connections they need. As new peers enter the Swarm they will try to connect with others except they cannot reach you. You will not know they exist until you receive a Tracker update and by then they may have all the peers they need. If you cannot receive incoming connections your performance is going to be horrible on most torrents. I highly recommend you get a better internet connection and mobile broadband is never a good option when using peer-to-peer downloading. Fiber optic is usually the best option
  11. impossible with torrents, could be emule
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
