Successively file downloading feature

Postby bodich » Fri Jul 22, 2016 8:13 am

Hi. Please make successively file downloading feature in preferences. It is necessary for movies downloading. In that case user can watch movie immediately after downloading starts. Thank you! qBittorent has this option (including downloading first and last part of the file first) but I like your app much more and want to use it further. Thank you.

There already has been a similar request here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17239.

And I personally think it's not a good idea to implement it, because torrents are a "cooperative community thing", and sequentially downloading files is more likely to harm the so called "torrent health" than downloading the blocks in a more random order.

Seriously ... why are people so impatient ?
