I use Utorrent and never have problems so if thats the case i’ll just carry on as normal since its still downloading just abit slower than usual, i just thought i’d mention it since i’ve never seen that before.
The latest utorrent builds became terribad, I would recommend you to try another client.
Why would you advise against using utorrent, that’s the opposite of what people are saying everywhere else. It’s not terribad. Everyone knows utorrent and Azureus are the two best torrent clients. I have the latest version of utorrent, and I have no problems.
Rokuedaime: utorrent has become a bloated ad-pushing piece of crapware. The last good clean version was 2.2.1 or so (google it). Azureus is garbage too, even in classic mode. I want a torrent client not some bloated mess that tries to do everything and sucks at it.
Windows: qBitorrent, Deluge, tixati (tixati is NOT open source)
OSX: apparently Transmission is still good
Linux: rtorrent, Deluge
So basically you hate utorrent because it has too many extra functions that you don’t need/don’t use, and because they don’t work like they should/like you want them too (I’m assuming you’re not talking about filesize when you say “bloated”, because that would just be stupid)? That’s an odd thing to get hung up on when the basic functions still work perfectly just like before. Nobody is forcing you to use the other stuff (I don’t use it either). I click on torrent links, and utorrent opens them and asks me which of the files I want to download. I click “ok” (or deselect files I don’t want), and start downloading, and the download shows in a nice window with a good overview, with different tabs I can click if I want to view different info about the torrent I’m using. I can “pause”, “stop” etc the download just by right clicking and selecting those functions. When it’s done downloading I just stop it, and remove it from the tasklist. That’s all I need, and it’s all easy to use, and it all works with no problems.
That was quick, but why? 720p is mainly for saving space and the source audio is good. The only reasoning i can see is that it lets us encode it to whatever we want without doing lossy>lossy. But the file size goes up a lot making the download take longer.
720P is because most animes aren’t 1080P native, so people who don’t wanna waste space and bandwidth can experience it with the same audio quality as 1080P.
