I have been doing some tests with one avi file: approx. 700 MB, Rated as good on Bitzi and shared by a good number of hosts. After having problems on Limewire 4.18.3 and 4.18.6 and Frostwire 4.17.0 I did download it with no problems on another Gnutella Client.
As far as I can see the problem is that Frostwire and Limewire are detecting corrupt segments where there are none. Viewing the download with extended tooltip showed at varying stages depending on the particular download, a rapidly increasing amount of the file lost to corruption, although to be fair my first download on Frostwire went fine until I cancelled it purposely at 95%, re-started Frostwire and could not then restart it, except from zero.
There is another problem, touched on above, that I have found, which is that if you cancel a download and close Frostwire it will not restart from where it left off when you restart and resume. Also bringing up the exact same file in a fresh search will not show the broken paper icon, but if the download is resumed from the Library and the identical file then selected for download from the new search it gives the message, correctly, that it is already being downloaded. also covered in viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4769
These problems may well be connected.
For now it seems to be a good idea not to have any cancelled partial downloads when Frostwire is closed, but rather keep them in the download window.
As for the corruption problem, I did think this might be due to using Frostwire for other tasks .. which I was doing, but one download stopped progressing due to "corruption" even though I was doing nothing else on the computer. .. so it seems to be random.TOPIC MOVED TO BUGS FORUM
