  • sounds very much like a firewall/internet protection software/antivirus issue. Make sure The Windows Firewall isn't blocking it, and check Windows 10/Defender for any possible white list to add FrostWire to.
  • please make sure you have the latest version of FrostWire (not uTorrent), and that you don't have internet protection software, firewalls or antiviruses blocking FrostWire from listening to incoming connections. Also make sure the file you're downlo…
  • because we don't believe in superstitions, devils, ghosts, santa claus, superman nor gods. Will try to get an update out quicker for the superstitious ones, in the meantime please know that if you have issues you need to update.
  • can you please send us a screenshot? have you tried updating the drivers of your video card and also applying any pending system updates available in your operating system? sounds like a system issue.
  • you can download album covers and edit your music files but you will need to use another app to do that. Due to software patents this is a feature we cannot provide. If you're in windows 10, you can do this with the Groove Music player
  • Thank you for this most excellent feed back, we will implement it soon https://github.com/frostwire/frostwire/issues/702
  • check how many "Seeds" the download has once it's started downloading. It might be that there's nobody online sharing the file, just leave the app open, or try downloading an alternative search result that has more peers seeding (aka sharing)

  • We recommend PIA, ExpressVPN, and NordVPN. Not sure if they have software you can install directly on your router, my guess is that you'd have to manually set up the VPN server in there. Interesting that you want to do it at the router level, I'd ne…

  • @Archway when you say "if a torrent was downloaded from say limetorrent", you mean that you downloaded the .torrent file using a browser and then opened it with frostwire right? If that's the case, it makes sense that FrostWire doesn't make another…
  • @skinux I believe @alexm didn't understand your question. I guess all you want is to keep downloading several search results without having to go back and forth between the search and transfer skins. There's a setting for this. Go to Settings &…
  • any luck @lilly654321 ?
  • what version of FrostWire are you running @menacestag1 ? Please check your Internet Protection Software, some antivirus suites have Firewalls built in which might be blocking some of the sites FrostWire uses. Also make sure that FrostWire isn't be…
  • I clicked on frostwire in the taskbar, and guess what? The cpu usage spiked upto 27%, it was staying up. This happens because when you make the window visible the entire user interface is rendered and refreshed every 1 second, so it takes CPU. …
  • If you want to get NordVPN detected you can help us implement a fix very easily: Turn of your VPN In cmd.exe type "netstat -ar" Paste the output with VPN off here TUrn on your NordVPN In cmd.exe type 'netstat -ar" Paste the output with the VPN ON …

  • what do you mean "Too many ads changing too fast", FrostWire has no ads inside. Are you in Windows?
  • it might be that your search cache is way too big for your computer to handle. Go into Tools > Options > Searching > Smart Search Click on the button that says "Reset Smart Search Database" Then try doing one search at the time, you have…
  • you should check the Windows Firewall settings. If it's turned on, make sure it has FrostWire as one of the apps that's allowed to open connections. If this is not the case, maybe you installed some sort of internet protection app or antivirus tha…
  • the entire deskop, let it run, take the screenshot. Only have visible the Task monitor and keep FrostWire minimized. What I want to see is, if possible a graph of the CPU consumption by frostwire to see if there's a pattern that repeats every ofte…
  • @aq2012 Awesome, now please do the following: Close all apps. Start FrostWire. Minimize the FrostWire window. Open the app you use to monitor CPU Monitor/Wait for 5 minutes, do not open the frostwire window, I want to make sure it has nothing to …
  • Testing on Mac we were able to skip all the offers, simply by clicking on "Skip" and nothing was installed We'll test on Windows next.
  • @Neuk2015 in the meantime, please try these installers which have no offers whatsoever Mac http://dl.frostwire.com/frostwire/6.6.3/frostwire-6.6.3.dmg Windows http://prime.frostwire.com/frostwire/6.6.3/frostwire-6.6.3.windows.exe
  • glad to be of help, we're doing everything we can on every release to make the app perform better
  • Hi Neuk2015, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Are you on Mac or Windows, so we can test the installers properly? You should be able to skip offers and your browser preferences should not be changed, if we find an installer is doing those…
  • can you show me a screenshot of the tool that says the app is using that much CPU. I've just run a java profiler on it, I was seeding 10 torrents and if I don't switch to the FrostWire window and let it be, CPU doesn't even touch 2% for me
  • even without the VPN indicator on? Every how often do you notice the CPU usage? Are you seeding any transfers?
  • @aq2012 no need to call me Mr. although I'm getting old... Here's the new installer, you're the first person to know about it besides me, so if you read this shortly, you might be the first person after me to install it in the whole wide world. ht…
  • Here's the fix, for our next build. https://github.com/frostwire/frostwire/commit/1d5ce7149d38cb72c80efe05467e9fb682ad7f41 Stay tuned for the update message @aq2012 Let's hope this is the issue.
