Re: multisource downloading feature

Hi guys, my 2 cents about multisource feature in DC++, I think that this features must be available, I vote for it, because if implemented properly - it can help a lot to make a traffic lower, especially when you can control slots/connections on a hub/client. Personally I like a lot how it is imple...

Links besides hub links are planned to use magnet links. Those kinds of links (ones that specify a filename/size/TTH to be added to the download queue mainly) are not even remotely ADC-specific, so it doesn't make sense to have them as adc links. Plus, it's just like http and https.

The idea behind the auto-match queue is that if...
