Downloading Help
« on: December 29, 2008, 08:10:35 AM »

here are some frequently asked questions about downloading here

you get slow speeds when downloading (ex. about 10-20kb/s) ?
filehost like mediafire/ifile/etc sometimes limits the speed for people who use addblock+ or other filters that block adds on their pages. It makes sense since they make money out of adds. The solution is simple either add the filehost to a addblock+ whitelist or turn off addblock when downloading from that filehost. Whitelist is better solution since you have to set it up just once. Once you set it up your speed should be a lot faster.  

you cannot download even though you can open the file host site?
example :
Quote
an error has occured while processing your request, sorry

HTTP/1.x 500 Internal Server Error
the server which holds the file down, sometimes it's like that, just wait for 1-2 days, don't report broken if you don't see any notification like it's deleted or expired

you click the link to download but you cannot download
search google on how to clear cookies and cache of your browser like this - http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache

your download stopped halfway
just use 1-2 simultaneous connection per file, if you do not know how to configure that on your download manager or you got no idea what is it and your lazy to google it, then just download without download managers since normal downloading through your internet browser ensures 1-2 simultaneous connection per file

ill add to that "you download stopped halfway"
you must configure your download manager to do a parallel connection of only 1-2
connections

im using orbit so here are the steps
go to preferences > download/connection > connections to the original url >
set it to 2 or go to exceptions and click new add this http://*ifile.it* and set 2
on the "max original connection number" box

heres a screen shot


why 2 connections because a lot of files here are in ifile
so the FAQ of ifile state this "Please don't open more than 2 parallel connections
per download or your download may expire"

see the "per download" phrase there it means you can do more than 1 download at a time


ill add this one "your download is slow"

ifile says this on there FAQ "Our bandwidth is shared between all users, so at peak times
it might get slow, beside our best effort guarantee we can not promise anything to
guest and free users"

"ifile/mihd servers bandwidth cant maintain a lot of downloaders because its
getting popular even other anime sites used ifile now so just download in the
mornings (or anytime you notice its fast) where downloaders are low in numbers"

and if the case is your download is very fast at start but when its about to finish
it becomes slow then again check first your download accelerator/manager if its configure
with only 1-2 parallel/multiple connections


ill add this one too "download without download accelerators/managers as a last resort before complaining"
example is zshare and adrive this 2 i think dont support download accelerators/managers

wow thanks.. grin

zshare supports download manager, i used fdm to download nanoha in the past Tongue
just open one connection, because if you open more than 1 connection, it'll be terminated directly, that's why i set my connection to 1 and still getting max speed.. speed maybe differs from one to another Tongue

just note, by support download manager doesn't mean support download resuming, it's just the download manager can download it and organize it directly to folders(for me grin)
though i think we're not using zshare anymore..

as i said opening only 1 connection/thread is equal to downloading without download accelerators/managers

i think this should be stickied if all infos are organized we should wait for others who can give more info before this become a FAQ for animestash

downlaod without adblock+ on my system


with adblock download


this is it.

i therefore conclude that ads is nothing to do in your slow downloads... it maybe in your ISP's problem or routing problem with the filehosting company..

Well that was the case for me and also several people with slow downloads reported improvement when turning of addblock.

Maybe ifile changed system and turned that off ... or maybe it works for some people as you say...

Though I guess about 5 people noted this to help nevertheless ...

tip from ifile:

1. Lazy enough for the stupid captcha?
       - type the longest word that you can see.. you dont need to type the another word.

2. ifile has a special exception, if youre under the proxy server.
       - you can open up to 10 concurrent connection download in ease.
       - youre exempted on the captcha bs.
