Thread: Please Help... What Am I Doing Wrong?

  1. #1
    I just downloaded K-Lite v2.6, and I'm having problems downloading.

    - After I search and find files and click download, they almost always just say "searching", "connecting", or "remotely queued".

    - This occurs even if I try to download a file with 50+ users.

    - On the rare occasions when I actually start to download something, the speed is almost never higher than 3kb/sec.

    - My K-lite typically says there are ~60,000-90,000 users online, but occasionally it says there are over 1 million.

    - I've tried using the supernode files from the sticky in the forum, but they don't seem to have helped.

    - I'm using broadband, and in the past when I used K-Lite (an earlier version) I did not have these problems.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    P.S. One unrelated question: why is it that some movies seem to be "previewable" during the download, whereas others will just say "connecting" if you try to play them half-way into the download?

    Hi bloodysmurf

    I might be able to give You a useful tip regarding Your "unrelated question":

    Download the VideoLAN mediaplayer (VLC). It's freeeware. That player is the best I have encountered when it comes to play unfinished downloads or movies with some bad frames, etc.

    You can download it from this location:

    To play Your unfinished movie with VideoLan, You need to know the name of Your DAT-file, to be able to play the correct file. The filename is something like "download1091363983535255687". If You have K-Dat in Your installation of K-Lite v2.6 You can easily see what filename corresponds to the movie You would like to preview.

    To sum it up: If a file (a partially downloaded movie in his case) is playable at all, and not totally damaged, VideoLAN does the job.

    (I'm running Kazaa Lite 2.43)

    Thanks for the advice Hammond, though it won't do me much good if I can't download anything
