Okay first of all, torrents aren't files you use to play your video.  Torrent files are like links that connects them to the video files.  Once you got the torrent files (which is like 2kb), you use those to get your video files.  As for speed, well that depends.  Sometimes it'll be as little as 1kb, but most of the time it'll go up to at least 50.  It usually takes about half an hour to an hour to dl a 30 min file.  Just leave the window open and go do something else.  If the files are old then there might be less people seeding it.  Also after you have finish dl the file DO NOT close the window right away (unless you really have to).  Leave it open for about an hour so other people can get the file too...it's called sharing.

BTW boxtorrent is down for the time being.

so will the files play in say winamp or do i have to dl another player?

I usually use Windows Media Player or Media Player Classic, but yeah, WinAmp works for .avis no problem.

hi im using bitcomet and i was wondering is it always this slow cuz im dling at like 9kb and not uling at all...
is this normal cuz i have a cable connection...or is there something i forgot to set ??

Well if its right in the beginning of a download, it could be at 9k because you have not dowloaded enough to start uploading yet. Give it some time, just let it run for half a day and it should be done, mine usually levels off at about 20k/s since I have my uploads and downloads limited, keeping my computer usable while BitComet is open.

Mine is always less than 40 for both, since I limit them.

And no, it really doesn't make sense for the Gundam forum anyway, I just left it here since it started that way. Plus, these are the first issues using BitTorrent I have seen on this board in a long, long time.

Well, in general, the more people seeding a torrent, the faster it will go. Which is why AnimeSuki is usually your best bet, most of the largest fansubbing groups use AnimeSuki, so you will get quality and get it fast.

Exactly. I agree with Jadau.

I figured out part of the problem, with help from suggestions on this thread of course. I could've downloaded the update for wmp a while ago but forgot. The new update (which I got last night) allows it to play.avi files. SWEET. Now I just got to get the official biTorrent to help tornado then Iw ill be able to watch YAY for me. Thanxs guys for the help.

You had to update your WMP in order to play avi files?  Ok, whatever works I guess.  One last bit of tip.  I hope you have a decent computer or else the video will start to lag.  Especially now with the newer versions of WMP, which hogs a lot of power than it should.  If you need to, use the classic player on your computer.  It's a hidden feature.  Just go to START > Run > mplayer2.exe  Enjoy the pleasures of bittorent anime!

Of course you can burn the episodes to keep more space, but only if you have a burner... obviously. ALL versions of WMP have played .avis. So there was some other reason your computer would not play them before... but it works now, so all is good.
