I am not too computer savvy and I just started using FDM. Based on the comments all over the web I expected this be "lightening fast."
At the moment however, it seems to be downloading video [premium RS account links] sort of slowly. 90KB/s, with a time estimate that is longer than the length of the video. Is this normal? If it is, that's cool, but if it's not, maybe I have something set wrong, or need some plugin to go along with it?
I use FF 3.6.25. The files are .avi. I have FDM set at the 'heavy mode,' and I think I turned off the proxies (based on a tip that popped up). I don't know anything about mirrors - should I be activating that function?
If there are other components or settings I should be aware of to speed things up, I would sure appreciate the help.
