Thinking aloud again, sorry. ;)


RE: The above post.

Is the file mirrored on your isp
Does the server where the file is allow for x many of connections (including the servers you pass through to get the file, of which any could slow down the max download speed).
Max number of sections greater doesn't mean faster downloading. Unless of course isp and all servers to the file allow for x number of connections and have limited speed.

In affect doing this could mean that servers in future modify for this. Given that any request for greter than x has a limited speed (happened before for file servers).

FDM in normal situations always works at max speed if set to heavy downloading with unlimited. Also with the right connetion equation for your line speed would improve throughput. Maybe then what is needed is to set two profiles. One for normal speed (no restrictions) and one for special circumstances (with limitions or restrictions). Even still this doesn't gaurantee to get the file any faster unless your isp has those files mirrored or is mirrored on servers that have no max connections restrictions.

Just a thought. :)


I may not have been clear on what I'm trying to do here...

So the current behavior of FDM is to split the files into X chunks (which determines the chunk size based on file size)... In order to use the PowerBoost feature that my ISP gives me, I cannot download more than 4 to 8 megabytes PER connection, otherwise the speed is throttled for the remainder of that connection. There is no way to tell FDM to set the chunk size at 5 megabytes, and download X chunks simultaneously.

This is the feature I need: I want to be able to instruct FDM to download, say, 3 chunks at a time of size 5 megabytes... In fact, I could have only 1 connection at a time and as long as FDM disconnects and re-connects every 5 megabytes, I would get UNLIMITED bandwidth from my ISP due to the PowerBoost feature.

Hope this clears up my request...

Thanks again!

It would be nice if FDM could start download before selecting group or target folder. For example in firefox, I click on download select file target, and if it's small download it is usually already downloaded. Would like something like that implemented in FDM, it would save time, especially with small downloads, when you decide where to put the file it's already being downloaded.

I agree, but I'd like to offer a solution:

All you really want is "start download automatically and automatically open properties window"
The only thing not currently available is automatically opening the properties window ;)

So you can just change your options to start downloads automatically, then simply change the group afterwards.
Changing the group on a finished download moves it to the group folder.
However, you can't change the target folder, or filename, of a running download - and changing the group doesn't move it to the group folder.
So while your download will complete sooner, you would have to waste time after the download is completed to rename/move the file. :(


So, I'd like to request a "change filename/group when finished" feature, which can be implemented invisibly in the current "filename" box, instead of the popup message "This download is in the progress. Can't change file name", set the file to be renamed on completion. (Technical: Extra background download property "rename to filename", on completion, check field for not null and rename. - So simple i might just do it myself.)

I've looked at a many download managers and I've come to feel that FDM is currently the best however, I feel I won't be able to use it as I only use portable programs and FDM is only portable in theory. It writes its data to the registry (see below).

There is a demand for a good quality download manager (which FDM is) please make it write to ini files and not the registry.

I think this may help but I have no programming experience

this should help if creating ini files are too difficult

Here is Microsofts wn ugly and outdated downloader

MS suggests its using on sites like https://connect.microsoft.com/site216/Downloads

it looks a bit ike torrent - you get bootstrap download.dm file, that is pwnwd by FTM and here we go.

I with FDM could replace that ancient ugly beast by supporting DLM files

hello please add an function for fdm to download from multiple ips if they are avilable!!

this feature is becuase so IP is bandwidth is limited from network administrator and does not remove limitations


if you prefer not to add it just tell us how to edit fdm foe that in the way that TCP connections open in the preffered IP!

thank you very much

you can increase the number of downloads of your app much more with this function.

I'd like to have another option to automate sorting files in groups:
the file name of the file to be downloaded (with wildcards)
This would make it a lot more comfortable for me.
Thanks.

FOR THE DEV : NEXT GENERATION OF FDM MUSTN'T BE BLOATED !!!

I'm using FDM 3.0

To the dev, in next FDM release, please don't make FDM so-bloated software... I suggest a feature in installation providing the option that be able the users not-to-choose the sw feature that make the software bloated like Upload, Site Explorer, Site Manager, and HTML Spider... (It is better to remove these features at all forever :twisted: except the target users include HTML dev)

Please, don't make our bloated OS (I mean 'Windows') become more bloated than before!!!

Note : Flash video download feature isn't working !!! The solution of this problem is to make the sw update more frequently.

Thanks for your attention.

Does having those features available affectes your system performance?
I don't think it does, so I believe is for the best to leave them for people that need it. don't need it don't use it, though I think that the installer could prompt for what features would we like to install and use, but remove those features forever, hell no!

btw

COULD SOMEONE FROM FDM TEAM REPLY TO THIS TOPIC ON A REGULAR BASIS! RATHER THAN PRETEND IT DOES NOT EXIST!
AND ARE YOU GUYS WORKING ON MAKING SUGESTED FEATURES AVAILABLE? POOR FEEDBACK FROM FDM TEAM IS NOT ENJOYED BY ANYONE.
CARE MORE

Yeah, I agree with you, there are many people out there using these features, also FDM already comes in lite version too...
