  • I used to maintain the Gnutella.net link as best I could, but I have stopped. The reason being that for several months I have found precious little being shared on the Gnutella network. It was great in its day. the links in the previous post may hel…
  • Search on your computer for a file you know is missing and see if it turns up. Only after attempting the above .... there are certain programs, depending on your operating system for restoring deleted files if the worst has happened. One was cal…
  • If the music you want is available on iTunes or Amazon, you can be safe to assume that you should not download it for free, but laws are different in every country. Also Amazon has been known to sell music which should not really be sold by them and…
  • @LornaLorraine, In certain parts of the world it is illegal to access certain websites, and torrent sites, often fall into these categories, The Frostwire search method involves contacting some of these sites. This will apply equally if you are s…

  • I'm not sure why, but unless it is for odd single songs, I do tend to use an alternative Youtube downloader
  • The Youtube downloads do not require seeders. They download direct from youtube. You need Frostwire plus to do this which is not available from Google Play. I was about to check, but am unhappy to see that my Frostwire has just been updated automati…
  • What versionFrostwire were you using and what version are you trying to install. I cannot recall exactly when Power PC was discontinued, but it is a long time ago and I do not understand how a recent version of Frostwire - version 5.x or 6.x, obtai…
  • 1. I have sometimes found something like this happening. Once I have completed a download I try to save it to my PC as soon as I can. It may be some sort of bug where Frostwire checks the file and thinks it is not complete, but I can not be sure. …
  • It is not a problem I have heard of. My Samsung does not have the problem. This thread might help
  • I have Googled PUA and Spigot with relation to Mac OS X and would suggest you do the same. It seems that these are some kinds of Malware, and whilst there are certain false positives for certain parts of installations for some Frostwire users, I …
  • It is vitally important that you do not alter any of the data that you have in the torrent data file .. even the title. That being said, I am not quite sure what it is you are trying to do. Are these completed torrent downloads which you wish to …
  • Go into options/preferences > Searching, and uncheck archive.org and any other results you may not want. It is worth pointing out that in some locations, local laws may prevent you from accessing certain results and it may be worth looking into u…
  • I suspect you will find that the developers are anxious for everyone to run the latest Frostwire which is a good idea in general since the search parameters for older versions are often not up to date. This can be a bore for some users who choose, f…
  • Hide My IP is one users choice and not Frostwire' preference. Frostwire recommends Express VPN or Private Internet Access (my VPN of choice). Any others may or may not be good but a search of the Torrentfreak.com recommendations is always wise.
  • hey Efrain indeed! I think she is past the kid stage though
  • I guess I am lucky, and never had any problem using PIA. I tend to use the automatic setting. Fortunately I have never needed to follow those lengthy steps.
  • I have found that some .torrent files are either faulty or corrupted, or in some way faulty, or that Frostwire is unable to download them. Unless Frostwire is able to download the relevant .torrent file, the download cannot begin. It is not unknown …
  • God Bless and rest in peace my friend Scott. My deepest condolences to his daughter Sophie.
  • Did that post disappear? I am (perhaps wrongly) under the impression that it is necessary for the chat administrator needs to enable use on an IRC client (if indeed it is possible), and I suspect this will not happen until the basic Slack system …
  • Help is currently available here and in the help tab at
  • Shortly, if not already there is or will be a mechanism to request and retrieve invitations to http://frostwire.com/chat The Chat is being moved to Slack chat, and as soon as it is set up the above links posted by Gubatron should give access to t…
  • There is at least one Torrent Client which marks incomplete files in the download folder as "part" and I would welcome this very useful feature in Frostwire. It also lists all individual files in a torrent and marks them in the application itself as…
  • When you make a search make sure the icon highlighted near the top left of the screen is the Frostwire (Torrent) icon and not the music (Audio) icon and also check the size if the download which should be something over 40 MB or so and could be up t…
  • @hnoor0011 Please see Scott's post above and give us some details....
  • I am interested to know which version of Frostwire you are using, and which column you are looking in. (see the various icons under the search results at the top left of Frostwire). A file size of 6kb would tend to suggest a text file or maybe a .to…
  • You do not say which version of Frostwire you are using, but I am suspecting that you are getting results from Soundcloud, and you can turn these off in Frostwire preferences/options > searching> Search Engines
  • We do not allow huge numbers of advertisements on this forum. In fact we only allow one which is for PIA - see above. The reason for this is that the community trusts in PIA and personally I have tried a few VPNs and this is my personal choice.
  • Do you have enable iTunes > iTunes importing enabled in Frostwire Preferences/Options? ** Do you have Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library enabled in iTunes Preferences/options > advanced? I do not use Rebuild iTunes …
  • Which version of Frostwire are you trying to download? - and where are you downloading it from? It would need to be a very old version of Frostwire for it to be for PPC. It is just possible, I suppose, that somehow your Mac is misreading the dmg but…
  • Limewire and the Gnutella versions of Frostwire used to show which files were Creative Commons and therefore legal to download. Unfortunately the majority of these seemed to be fake certificates and all needed double checking before one could be sur…
