    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.

    Streets of Fire

    .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.

    Adding new torrent search Sites.

    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

    the instructions I gave you were to fix the problem outside bitcomet

    change your folder options to allow viewing of known file extensions and everything will become clear.

    Lost all my tasks on bitcomet!!!

    rename downloads.xml to brokendownloads.xml, then find a backup from the latest date that worked and rename it downloads.xml then start bitcomet. you may have to enable viewing of file extentions for known file types in order to be able to change the extentions. A google search can be helpful in doing that.
  19. Not really fond of this option, if you are adding trackers that the torrent isn't registered in then you are only spamming the tracker with unwanted traffic and potentionally shutting down trackers. it's kinda like if someone thought it would help their phone calls complete if they added random phone numbers to be dialed, causing the owners of those numbers a lot of grief. If you add only open trackers, or if bitcomet would automatically remove any tracker that did not accept the torrent, then this could be a good option.

    Download Complete Blip

    You can also make your own sound and find the "download complete" audio file and replace it with another using the same name.
  21. This is because Install-core is added to the public distributed file so users can have the option to install bundled apps. None of which are malicious and can easily be declined during install. Doing this is an attempt to cover the cost of developing BitComet so it remains free. The archives don't contain install-core Esto es porque Install-core se añade al archivo que se distribuye al público, para que los usuarios puedan tener la opción de instalar las aplicaciones que están agrupadas. Ninguna de ellas son maliciosas y se puede optar por no instalarlas durante la instalación fácilmente. Hacer esto es un intento de cubrir el coste de desarrollar BitComet, para que siga siendo gratuito. Los archivos no contienen Install-core.
  22. Please explain in detail exactly what you are trying to do, and how you are doing it. Assume I cannot see your computer and know nothing about it, or how you are operating it, so leave out no details and I'll attempt to recreate this condition to confirm if it's a bug, or you are asking it to do something that violates your computer's settings.
  23. yes, this is a false positive. Install core may be considered "adware" by some, but it is not malicious, it simply allows Bitcomet to bundle other apps without requiring users to download them, and if members chose to install the offered apps it helps to keep bitcomet free. However I'm told the links in our archive do not have installcore, but you can confirm this using the link in my signature. Otherwise whitelist bitcomet in malwarebytes so it won't block the install. Sí, es un falso positivo. El Install core puede ser considerado como "adware" por algunos pero no es malicioso. Simplemente permite que BitComet pueda agrupar otras aplicaciones sin la necesidad de que los usuarios tengan que descargarlas,y si los usuarios deciden instalar las que se ofrecen, esto ayuda a que BitComet siga siendo gratuíto. Sin embargo, me han dicho que los enlaces en nuestro archivo no contienen el installcore (pero lo puedes comprobar, si usas en elace de mi firma). Por lo demás, lo que puedes hacer es añadir BitComet en tu Lista Blanca de Malwarebytes, para que no te bloquée la instalación.
  24. No, can you tell us what reason it gave for blocking the install? No. ¿Nos puedes decir qué razón dio [el Malwarebites] para bloquear la instalación?
  25. Installcore has been abused by some publishers to install software you may not want, but when used properly it is a useful tool and allows bitcomet to offer useful apps to it's users. This is helpful to help cover the costs to make and distribute this free product and you can easily decline any of the offered apps, so there is no reason for it to be "detected" unless the antivirus software developers are lazy and simply detect anything that uses it. If bitcomet received regular donations, this wouldn't be necessary, but bills must be paid. As it is we have been using volunteers to support users for a dozen years and unless want to start paying for bitcomet, installcore will stay. I also ask that users consider trying the apps offered, there isn't any income if the apps aren't selected by members, but you are still welcome to decline. Please understand that Bitcomet has never included malware of any kind, but thank you for bringing this up so we can (again) explain this to our users.
