Awesome, now please do the following:
Close all apps.
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 …
@Neuk2015 in the meantime, please try these installers which have no offers whatsoever
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
@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.
@aq2012 I think I know what it might be.
FrostWire periodically (every 20 seconds) checks if your connection is going through a VPN tunnel.
The check is done to display the status on the bar at the bottom, to warn you if your connection is private…
All I can say for now is that given you have an i5, the operating system probably queues up a bunch of operations between processes. By the time it switches to FrostWire, specially if you have the windows in focus, it does need to use some CPU.
it's most likely processing DHT queries, tracker queries, it's a p2p app.
If you switch windows, move the window, it will use more CPU.
Also every 1 second the entire user interface is refreshed to reflect any possible changes in the states of the…
will investigate on my end without any transfers and see what I can find. Thanks for bringing this to our attention as the same library is used on android and we can't afford extra cpu cycles there as it can kill precious battery life.
if this cpu activity drops after a couple minutes, this might be FrostWire downloading and seeding the last update. Other than that it might be FrostWire checking existing downloads (even if they're stopped or seeding FrostWire needs to check the in…
@Stevieg1024 did you try the latest version of FrostWIre?
We just released a new one last thursday
Please try that one but instead of launching it with the regular executable icon, go into your Start menu, then…
looks like your computer is reaching its end of life. 10.6.8 (we're like at 10.12.x these days) is not supported by newer versions of FrostWire, this is why you get no results and why we keep working on new ones, everything moves forward and we're a…
I built it and tested it on Xenial with Java 8, it does work fine with java 8.
If you want to keep java 9 as your default and you still have java 8 in your system, you will have to modify the launch script which I believe lives at
This error on 6.6.1, and probably on the new 6.6.2 is due to your Java Runtime Version
Corrupted pack file: magic/ver = CAFED00D/171.0 should be CAFED00D/150.7 OR CAFED00D/160.1
Make sure you install the latest Java version, FrostWire…
but if you do this, you will be the only seed as the torrent hash will change.
So you will most likely have to re-publish your newly renamed torrent in one of the major torrent indexes for anybody to find it and seed along with you.
Search results coming from third parties might show a number of seeds that might no longer be the case.
When you start downloading and FrostWire starts to look for peers around that torrent it'll tell you what the actual number of seeds for that to…
Motzkoffer, thought you'd like to know.
I've implemented a fix, basically the search database might get too big and opening the database file can take a long time. I looked at the code and this was being done in the user interface thread, therefore…
