prioritize download speed?

Post by lingtalfi »

Hi, I noticed that when I download some torrents, the last one added seems to get the highest download speed every time.

Is it possible to choose which torrent should have the most download speed ?

I saw that there is a priority number, but I don't know what it's for, it doesn't seem to do much in that regard.

Thanks.

The number column is only used for queuing afaik. You can set priority by clicking on the torrent, then on the content tab at the bottom of the window. Priority is set by folders, but if you set higher priority to some torrent's files and it has enough seeders, then the download should go faster than the others.

Thanks, I never noticed those Download priorities in the Content tab, that's exactly what I was looking for.

AFAIK the priorities for files just affect the order in which pieces are fetched within a torrent. They have no effect in prioritizing one torrent over another.
