    Please reshare other matches u might have whilst downloading this :). The readme.txt and sample.mpg files are the same as for the Hewitt-Nadal files.. so save yourself additional download time by putting it in the same directory as the one u're downloading this match to and u shouldn't have to download these files again.

    Thanks for that one,

    I am just wondering if you have the Agassi V Ferrero 2003 US Open semi. And any matches from the 2002 Masters-cup?

    Thanks,

    -Liam

    Sorry Liam I don't have any matches pre2004.

    I should note here that I'm the only seed for the other two matches (Hewitt-Nadal & Coria-Safin) and there are still people downloading those files. As such my available upload bandwidth is being split 3 ways.. so don't be surprised if the download rate for this match is slow. However if there are others who seed the other two matches then I can use all my upload bandwidth for this match :). So if u wanna get this file quicker.. seed the other matches :)!

    Nope those are all the live links. If u're referring to the Federer-Hewitt match that was the first I released then that match is no longer available as the tracker is down and I've erased that file from my hard drive. However it would be easy for others who have the file to release a new torrent that I'd be willing to add to my page as long as those who have got the file download the new torrent and reseed the file using the new torrent. However I have my doubts that this will happen :). In my experience, it's been hard to keep torrents going on for longer than a week after the initial release. I seed when I can of course but my upload rates are pretty slow especially if I'm having to seed 3 matches (and soon more). I suspect some of these torrents will die out but that's fine by me :).. like a lot of things on bittorrent it's going to be a question of getting it while it's available.

    I've also added a page to the link above with the matches I have on DVD for those who are interested in getting any other matches I might have.

    Another quality download brought to you by AndyC :)

    I will reseed my past downloads, I had them seeded for a week each, and just assumed they would have been distributed to everyone by that point.

    How do you seed the file? When I tried to seed it no one was downloading from me. I clicked on the torrent file and clicked on the already d/led folder so I can upload, but it doesnt seem to work. Or maybe no one's d/ling anymore?

    u've done it right.. u double click on the completed torrent which should then open your bittorrent program.. and u point the program to the already completed file.. and just leave the window open.. as people need the file form u the tracker should direct them to you and the downloads will start. there maybe periods when no one is downloading from you..

    I still see quite a few people downloading all 3 files though.

    Thanks Andy for setting up all these matches for download. Its really quick and easy to get them running. My only gripe is the quality is so low.. I can barely see the ball on this one.

    Would it be possible to increase the quality by 30%? Im sure most people will be willing to wait a little longer for the increased enjoyment of a better quality match.

    A few hundred megs of space would make so much difference in quality.

    Ugh :(.. sorry about this one.. the initial quality wasn't the best to start with.. partly because it was the first match I ever captured. However I am concerned that u can't see the ball. When I watched the match after the reencode it looked reasonable to my eyes. I'll bear it in mind for the other matches I'm working on.. the next one is the Srichaphan-Johansson and the quality will be better if only because the archived match is better captured.. but it probably will be a larger download as well as that one went to 3 sets.

    BTW I'm assuming your complaints about quality are only for this match? I've had positive feedback for the other matches in the main (I'm excluding the Federer-Hewitt match as it's no longer available and it was my first!) :).. Sorry if I use the first as an excuse but there is a learning curve!

    yea, same here, the agassi/roddick match was my first, and it just had got it to record with the sound working minutes before the match. The Divx quality looks better than the orginal. Well maybe we'll get so good matches for the US Open and we can try different qualities and format, ect...

    Thanks AndyC!

    I am downloading it and will be seeding it over the weekend, as long as my pc stays up.

    Thank you for replying.
    Yes video editing is quite a skill in itself . Its also very time consuming. Im well aware of this and I thank you for taking the time.

    I did not intent my message to be a complaint. It was meant more as a suggestion. If it appeared that way then Im sorry.

    Its just my view is that quality should not be skimped on just for the sake of a little hard drive space. Im not sure what other peoples view on this is. If anyone else would like to share there opinion it would be a help in determining a good quality over size ratio.

    no apologies needed phat.. I'm always on the lookout for feedback. I think the main concern for some was the size of the file. in one of the past discussions I remember here about size of file I think 700MB for two hours of video was mooted simply because that's what a lot of movies are being released at. I think that's a little too compact myself. I think 1gb is a reasonable compromise. however with this match I accept I may have overdone the compression.

    I've been stuck at 93% for about a day now. I started downloading it the day you posted it. :( It says it's downloading and uploading at 0 KiB/s. I think it can't connect or something. Does anyone know how I can get I to work better/faster.

    might not be any seeds, i'll open mine again. Give it a minute and you should see some kind of speed happening. should be up 24/7 for anyone that wants to still download it.

    I've certainly been seeding this from the start and not stopped. It may be that there's something wrong with the program itself.. stop the program and restart and see if u find any seeds.

    It managed to get to 96% last night, but I opened it this morning and it is not downloading and it says "connecting to peers".
