With the android client, a person can download multiple files within a folder sequentially, in that when you select to download sequentially, the first file will download without buffering the rest. This goes on until the last file is downloaded. On PC, the BitTorrent client prefers to buffer all the files before downloading in sequence once you select "prioritize by file order". This doesn't help much since the first file takes longer to download since it has to wait for the rest of the files to buffer. I think you should include the option where each file strictly downloads before the rest instead of prioritizing them like on mobile clients... or just keep both features.
I'm a newby and all of this is a mystery to me. I have a DVD with an old personal project that was transferred to the DVD from VHS. I simply want to get it onto my PC, convert it and upload it to YouTube for friends to see. I've been told that I can use BitTorrent to transfer it to my PC, then use HandBrake to recompress it and upload it. That's all I want to do. Can someone tell me how to use BitTorrent to get the video onto my PC? What do I look for on the BT dashboard and how do I use it? Thanks!
I'm using Ralink RT5390R 802.11n WiFi Adapter and Windows 8, and after I use a torrent program like BT or utorrent (which works just fine) I am unable to put my computer to sleep. The screen turns black like it is about to go to sleep, but it keeps working really hard instead of going fully into sleep mode. Once this happens, the computer becomes totally unresponsive and I have to force shut down the laptop (HP Envy) by holding down the power button (otherwise it will just rev really high doing nothing forever - or until the battery dies). I know it is my WiFi adapter that is causing the problem for two reasons: 1. this problem does not occur when I am able to use the torrent program with an ethernet cable (no WiFi) and 2. when i try to disable/re-enable the driver after using the program, the whole device manager window and the WiFi driver itself become totally unresponsive - at which point I have to restart the computer for the WiFi adapter to become functional again. I have checked and changed the power settings, that was not the problem. I have also tried reinstalling the driver (though I may not have done that properly). I have searched a number of times for a solution to this problem, but have yet to see anyone else with the same problem. Maybe I just really suck at searching for solutions. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
