Thanks for the reply.

How did WinMX, Napster (the original), SoulSeek, Kazaa, Audio Galaxy etc. do it so easily, then? (without hashing)?

Hiya guys. No, not ID3 tags, just the song/video's length and the bitrate (from the file properties). Actually, I don't believe song lengths or bitrates are even contained in ID3 tags? Anyway, my reason being when you search for a song, for example, the only thing you have to go on (to decide which ...

Is there anything I can do? It's a major peev. Vote with your wallet? Pay and support an ISP that doesn't limit traffic? Perhaps even go so far as to write a letter to said ISP upon your joining them. ADC hubs do let ADC clients connect to each other with SSL. Getting around ISP restrictions isn't ...

Ability to view file info prior to downloading

Like, if you search for an MP3/Video/etc., it tells you what bitrate was used to encode it, how long the song/video is, etc., in the search info prior to you selecting which file to download from a bunch of otherwise similar-looking files returned from the search query. Other P2P programs such as Wi...

I don't really want to use a netlimiter as it would slow other people downloading from you Which is more or less the same thing you do by using a small send buffer, the computer will just not be able to send that much data on the same time as it can with a larger one. Thanks for the reply. Although...

Hi, I'm also having trouble downloading when uploading using the latest release (v0.691), too. Using v0.674's 'Use Small Send Buffer' worked a dream, and my connection (512/256 ADSL) could max out either/or/and any way together, as needed. However, with v0.691 the download speed decreases massively ...

My ISP (Pipex) has seemingly also recently implemented throttling on P2P networks 24 hours a day. I have a 512/256 kbits/s ADSL connection (soon to be 1536/256 kbits/s) but I can't download anything greater than 20kByte/s when using DC++ alone at any one time anymore, now. - The flow has definately ...
