How can i improve the speed of a certain download with normally streams at about 600 bytes per second? The file is only 2 megs, and i`d like to be able to download it quickly, instead of waiting for it to stream. Is this possible?
The way to break up the file is:
Say our bandwidth is 6000 bytes per second, and the file is 50 minutes long.. We could break up the file into 10 pieces. The duration of each would be as follows:
Piece 1: 0:00 - 5:00
Piece 2: 5:00 - 10:00 << here trick the server using something like this: opening the realaudio file, and "forwarding" to 5 minutes into the stream and then pressing "record" as it were
Piece 3: 10:00 - 15:00
Piece 10: 45:00-50:00
The the software would patch the pieces together, leaving us 1 realaudio file, downloaded at 10x faster.
How does this sound?
It would make sense to add this to Offline Explorer, since many downloads at this time are unbearable due to the streaming speed -- making the software not worth its price.
(Especially since I use it only to schdule d/l of a daily RSTP stream.)
I download a daily newspaper read stream. It`s about 45 minutes long. I like to listen to the wall street journal in my car, and being able to record it quickly and d/l it to an mp3 player would greatly simplify my life. Perhaps you could include an option to do that in your software.
Hope this gives you some useful ideas for a future version.
much support Oleg.
