Thread: Irc Vs Bitorrent

  1. #1
    This is a semi noob question in the respect that i aint used IRC much (bittorent quite a lot)...
    Which is quicker for say downloading a movie, once you've got to grips with IRC (im talkin download speeds).
    I got Booted from Xbox Scene Forum...Proud??...You Betcha!!

    Well there are a lot of variables to factor in. But if you find a reliable irc source you can get amazing download speeds (especially if you have cable/dsl and up). Then again if enough people are seeding on Bittorrent ive gone up to 180k down...so it all depends. I guess if you ignore that sometimes you have to wait in line for like 4 hours, just to be able to download the film...irc has a slight advantage. But I still prefer bittorrent just because of its reliability and ease of use.

    Bittorent seems better, since the Q in IRC these days sucks.

    IRC is so hard to use.

    Well, you have to take the good with the bad. Lots of IRC channels are registering with IRCspy and packetnews, so lots of people are using IRC. Its growing at a really fast rate. This is great for filesharing, but shitty for the average user. Sitting in que sucks, there is no getting around this. However, there are some really great IRC channels which are not on IRC spy. You just have to ask around to find the really good ones. Bittorrent is fast, but only when a file has lots of complete sources. Otherwise, its only slightly faster than emule.

    Sometimes they just timeout. Sometimes the user will reboot, could be any number of things. Just keep trying, there isn't alot you can do.

    However, there are some IRC scripts that you can use to re-que the file when you are away from your pc. Search for IRC scripts in google, you'll find more than you bargained for. I use Autoget and XDCCv. B)

    IRC is not hard to use, more like a pain to use because you can never find quality stuff or exactly what you want. I don't like vcd,bin, tar, svcd, mpg, or crappy quality stuff that's being the most abundant on it. Usually i delete all of it, because it's a waste of my harddrive space.
    i DON'T use BT much either cause, same reason as above ^
    Its either Kazaa, or DC for me.

    ive used everything out there and just the last month ive started using IRC for warez and i think it is the best thing out there if u want 0day VCD,Divx and games. I still use kazaa but only for old dvdrips or mp3s. it just takes time to get used to irc, if you use ircspy.com for example and search for matrix reloaded ctp, you will find lots of bots on highspeed (i know a channel full of 100mbit bots) connections but if the releace is really new (like out that day) you will have a hard time getting it. i normally hang about until a bot advertises it and jump into get it. email me @ omar@nuke-x.com if you want that server/chan with bot with upload speeds of 8MB/S.

    IRC is the best place for new movies/games!! if you use IRCspy.com you can find bots with speeds up to 5000 kb/s !!

    (IRC is not hard to use, you just need some time to now how it works)


    The good thing off Bittorent is that you share your files at the same time when you downloading
