Queue downloads automatically by Size
« on: May 04, 2009, 04:12:50 pm »
Hi,

I currently use the Auto Import feature (which is awesome!) but I would like to have Queue by Size automatically too. When im downloading a 10GB file and I whack a 200MB file in the Auto import folder to queue up it ends up last on the queue has to wait for the 10GB one to finish first (and anything else before it in the queue of course). Its a download computer by itself and only way to re-organize the Queue is to Remote Desktop in and change it.

Or maybe have like:

"Files under xxMB will take priority in the Queue" and have the user define the size, this would be perfect as I could fine tune it.

I think people will enjoy this feature and you could have one extra reason for people to donate  ;D


Thanks for reading (and hopefully considering)  :D

If there is a treshold, if < xxMB, add as first, maybe in the search engine context menu: Add to queue with auto prioritizing. Or whatever to call that function.

I hope this gets added cause I think we are on to something here, it will be a widespread feature once alt.binz starts it. All we need is RDL (or whoever codes it) to cast the spell and spread the magic  :D

Seriously, I think hardcore leechers on mediocre connections would actually use this alot.

I had suggested some sort of priority scheme so that (in the example above) the 10Gb file would be lower than the newly imported 200Mb.

Either way would work and be excellent.
