Do you have a recommendation for the number of threads to use? I used 40 with DE and am using 50 with MD. I have a 3 meg d/l speed, and usually large files (movies 2 to 4 Gig size).

Thanks

Usually 10-15 is OK, no need to use 40 or 50.

I was kind of looking for a more detailed reply. What is the difference between the 5 or 10 or 15 or 50 in terms of the response I can expect?

When using a small number of threads, I was getting a slower and more errors during downloads. I just wanted to know about the optimal number according to the file size I am getting.

It is more related to your Internet channel speed, source server, other conditions. Personally I use 10 threads. If 50 threads work better for you, don't change this. Practical test is more reliable than some kind of a theory. :)
