    Hiya

    I use WinMX, but I'm assuming the basics are the same.

    If you're downloading a file from one user, are you saying that you end up downloading the same file from many users, as they come online? If so, thats the way it should be, as they are sharing the files with you.

    It means that you can download files faster, but they may want to all download from you, which you may be able to tweak.

    Many people here use Kazaa, so they'll be better at this than me :)

    Regards

    The way it works is that by downloading from multiple users it allows the file to download faster than if you were just trying to get it from one person.
    Since you have a limited amount of data that can transfer through your computer at a time, there is a limit to how fast your computer can download stuff. Other people's computers are the same way.
    By downloading from three or four people, the only thing limiting how fast you download the file is how fast your own computer can transfer the information, now how fast the other peson's computer can upload, or send the data to you.
    Downloading multiple files at the same time is possible, but to do so, you have to sacrifice your downloading speed, and it will take longer to download both files.
    The same occurs if people are downloading things from you while you are downloading things from other people. In order to upload data to other people, you have to sacrifice some of your speed. In the options menu, you can choose how many downloads you can have occurring at one time along with how many uploads you can have occurring at one time.

    eddie explained it correctly.
    kazaa will try to find as many users who have that file in there shared folder.........as one user logs off kazaa will try to locate someone else with the same file,if your lucky it will find multiple users and the download speed will increase.you can also right click on the download and choose "find more sources for download"......thats the way it works.and wth the lite version theres no need to worry about popups and adds leaching your bandwidth.
    enjoy;)

    [TMD] i think is the user.......most movies are crudely videotaped from row Z of the cinema;)

    in the latest version of K/L hit the web tab and then "verified downloads" all the films in there are perfect quality....mostly with surround sound......mainly in divx format.
    www.divx.com to download the divx player.
    and here for the nimo codec pack.
    http://www.divx-digest.com/software/nimo_pack.html

    worth configuring your comp to play all video files by getting the above.
    any more help needed......just ask;)

    Hiya

    I assume the files that you can't play are the TFT ones?

    As I don't know much about Kazaa, could these be the Tempory files that Kazaa produces, that will eventually be the full films?

    Are they fully downloaded yet? If not, you may be able to view them. Are thee icons for the media type like one of these 2 links:

    http://burete.forodigital.es/angel/programacion/Html/gif/avi.GIF

    http://www.nbn.de/bilder/mpg.gif

    If its the first one, you may be able to preview it. If its the latter, you may be out of luck.

    Hi there Averil;
    I too have downloaded movies from Kazza in this file format and all the files I have downloaded in this format (tft) / avi have so far not worked for me. I have 5 players and all the Codecs for them have all been updated and still no go. I am currently searching for info on these associated file types. After I go to my ussual online sites and undergrounds and have found out any info I will let you know. Until then I guess these files are just NFG' LOL.

    Smiles from Crylynx :D

    hi averil......i dont think there is such a thing as a TFT file,it must be avi/divx/mpeg or one of the movie formats....sometime downloaded movies dont find there associated program.
    there is an app nemed "properties plus" that lets you change the file extention with the right click context menu,its worked for me a few times try changing to mpeg or avi and then try opening the movie.

    some people upload files with the extension modified to either get past filters or legal concerns. As stated above change the extension. Try avi or mpg or mpeg or mov or asf or even exe or zip. See if anything like that works. g/l

    TMD is a group that rips movies, most Kazaa movies are ripped by them, they do cams, screeners everything. They are pretty good too, not just bad video from row Z :D
    Check out the Verifieds board on http://k-lite.tk Its a message board where users post links to movies on Kazaa that are verified as real. There are a lot of fake movies out there that disguise themselves and people waste time downloading them not knowing its a fake.

    Not sure about the TFT thing, never heard of it, its definitely not done by the TMD people. Probably done by the user that ported the movie to kazaa. TMD Movies aren't put on P2P by TMD, they are distributed in an official IRC channel. Then users put them on P2P.

    hey!
    I was having problems with winmx for a while, then dicided to download k-lite. It works (in my opinion) better than winmx. I just downloading a lot of movies. It worked perfect. At first, when I went to open up the movie, it was tring to go to win. med. player what you have. Then I downloaded the divx. What I have to do is double click the divx icon. Bring the player on the screen. If you push the play button it should bring up all the movies you have downloaded. Then automatically play it. Try it and let me know.
