You need to update your codecs, I believe. Don't bother finding out what that means and just download VLC Media Player, which should allow you to watch the video.
As for the lack of speed, I dunno. It could be something to do with the port it's using, although I'm really not sure.
What bittorrent client are you using? That is, what program do you use to open the .torrent files?
i also tried bittorrent
it could also be that you haven't limited your upload speed. I think they suggest your upload speed should be set to about an eigth of the overall capacity of your connection. So if you were on 2meg, you'd set it to 256kb (32KB). Although I'm on 1meg and I limit mine to 2KB/s, not because I don't like sharing, just because I get faster downloads that way.
Muck around with your rates and see which best suit your connection.
It could also be badly seeded...........
go to google type in divx, download, install and play. that should work.
I am sure there are many posts regarding this but I cannot seem to find them, and therefore was hoping you experts can help me out.
I am using utorrent, and have a connection of 2.2mb, however my speeds are very slow, the max speed i get is like 25kb and thats on a rare torrent.
I have put my upload rate to 5kb, as i read this could be a reason, but still no change. I also read that i should use ports between 10,000 and 60,000 as ISP's do not block them and so therefore i am using port 12,000 but still no change.
Can you please help me out?
