    This match has just been seeded by someone on BitTorrent networks. Do a google on "Torrent Reactor" and go to that site.

    When I try to download it, there is always an error saying that there is a problem getting info and No such file or directory. Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Ok guys, seriously, I have been 99.9% finished for a day now, and it still hasn't got that last 1 mb. What is up with this, starting to get irritated.

    You dont know how torrent works? When you start downloading, since you have so little to share the ratio is jacked up and it takes so the program doesn't allow you to download **** until more users log on so you can share the bits you just downloaded..

    then theres the first few downloaders that all get stuck at 99% for a long time because of superseeding.. that means the first seed won't sent you the next part before you seeded the part it to someone else ..lol so basically you gotta wait till someone else is at 99%.. thats the only way torrent can keep a file active otherwise when demand goes down the seed is lost!

    Hope u got your file PCMD :). Someone from here must have uploaded the torrent to Torrent Reactor seeing as this was the only place I publicised the torrent initally. Whoever it was.. thanks for doing it. I should have done it myself except I'm pretty new to Bittorrent. I have to say I was surprised at the level of interest from a non-tennis environment as there appears to be plenty more new peers downloading the file.

    The video plays on my computer with big (1 second) hitches - does this mean my computer isn't fast enough to decode this realtime? Or is something else wrong? I've got a 1.3MHz Athlon with 256MB RAM, GeForce 3 graphics card. Thanks.

    Mine is very hacky as well, with 512MB ram and something 2 GHz with Gforce4. Incorrect decoder?

    Hmm.. both the machines should have plenty enough power to run the avis fine.

    Potential problems (just off the top of my head).

    Ad/spyware.. this is currently a fairly big problem for a lot of my friends.. some of them suck up system resources making playback choppy.

    Wrong codec.. in tandem with too many different codecs installed on the PC. A quick fix (at the expense of perhaps installing yet another codec) is to use the DivX media player (should be the most compatible as it will be using the decoder that the AVI was encoded in). Download from www.divx.com.

    Fragmented HD though this shouldn't really be a problem with the size of the files that is being played here.. usually more of a problem if the files are large.. but the match is in small bite sized chunks.

    Try playing around with those. There are a lot of folk who have downloaded the file and who have not run into problems.

    I've basically relegated mine to being that my CP usage is alwasy 100% for some reason now (spyware, my best friend). So I'm trying to fix that and then it will hopefully work. I'll try using the The Playa from DIVX too though.

    I see 3 seeds and 12 peers at the moment with 1.997 copies of the file so u should be able to get the whole thing. I'm going to leave this seeding for another day at most then I'll be seeding the Coria-Safin match instead.

    Looks like the torrent tracker is down for upgrade. I was trying to start torrent the next match and found out that way. Just have to wait till it gets back up and get some of the guys here who have the match to reseed it.

    MJC.. I'm no expert.. depends on what client u're using.. with ABC bittorrent client there's a reseed option.

    I imagine with a simpler client it's just a question of opening the torrent and when prompted to save the file.. just point it to where the file is saved. What client are u using?

    Perhaps someone would be kind enough to reseed this match whilst they are also downloading the new Coria-Safin match? I'd be grateful too as I'm going to be devoting most of my puny bandwidth to seeding the new torrent!
