Hello Team Thank you for providing for an awesome download manager. I use BitComet mainly for HTTP downloads. I use multi threads to speed up downloads. Any files with extensions mp4, mov, avi and such utilizes the 'optimize download strategy for preview' option. I have a request for 'preview optimization' for http video file downloads. Current preview optimization allows intial download of only about 10-15 mB to preview. Once its downloaded, I believe the rest of the downloads happen with equal parts between threads. So I ll give you an example, I have an 2 hour video file which can be downloaded in 30 mins. That means I have to wait for the whole file to download before I can start watching when I use 'multi threads'. If the download is optimized to obtain 25% of the file that is 30 mins of playtime, then I would only have to wait about 7.5 mins for download before I start streaming the video. So I'd really appreciate if an option is provided to change the 'initial download size' for previewing video files. Currently I believe its indicated in size between 10-15 and about 1mB is downloaded at the end of the file. An option either to mention a custom value in size or percentage would be great that allows users to wait less when it comes to http video files. And the 'preview download mode' in bitcomet for torrents which allows sequential piece download is the best among any torrent clients. Cheers
The preview option is excellent for its purpose. :wub: My request however is for a preview like option that not only load the first few percent of the video but does it in increments or sequence rather. For example: After the initial preview section is completed, priority is given to the next 5% of the video, then the next 5% and so on. This would greatly improve the experience for those of us who watches videos on the fly or so to speak.
