is put on hold as it will only run at low speed for me. Would be interested to hear if anybody is running it successfully at high speed?
Two things has happened, jDownloader is running right now doing a test where I scheduled the start of the download and I have changed mirror for the time being.
This is allowing me to run at sustained 320 kB/s which I am quite happy with as it brings an ISO download down around the 1 hour. During this period my speed variations should be minimal.jDownloader
This is not a program that "sits" right with me but with perseverance and time I think I may be happy enough with what I need it for. The things that struck me:
1.. Initial start is a very sparse window, which just wants to get going doing an update of some time. I was not comfortable as there was little explanation why this should happen. I followed the advice to let it finish an update, after which the the windows became more "normal".
2.. It took me some time realising that there was a scheduling window, but it is not visible by default and I thought it belonged to "premium" offer, where you pay.
3.. Have taken me some time to figure out how to get a link into the right place for a download.
4.. Started trying to come to grips with the Knowledgebase offered on the developers website. Where I eventually found very clear instructions on how to install and the options to choose. To my surprise I found that I had done the right thing. http://jdownloader.org/knowledge/wiki/basics/tutorials/beginners_guide
Takes a little bit of digging to get here, but worth it.
For a beginner I find it requires some extra effort not to drop it because of complexity. Interesting to see how it goes.
