Option to set start point per file

by Guest on 2019/12/30 06:09:23 AM    
I want ask an new context menu entry on files tab, to set the start point to download, for example many times you download an MMA Fight event and have 4 fights and 4 gb in just one mp4, but you want just the last fight, so with this new feature I can set to download just the last 40% of the file or the last 600 mb.

Can be fine an option to set the Start Point and the End Point per file. Many times MMA events have 8-10gb or more, just the main event, I can't seed it, if have an option to download just partially I CAN seed this part for an good time, but 10gb? My HD is small, so I download and after watch, I delete, I can't seed it, sometimes the people think which forcing you to do something can help but it in reality just make things worse. What is better an partial seed or any seed?

Option 1) Download the whole thing, cut it up with a video editor (one line in ffmpeg or 4 clicks in avidemux, and few seconds only because you don't need to re-encode) then share the fight you want to share by creating another torrent.
Option 2) You could just download a torrent that has multiple files and select the one you want. If there is none like that, go with Option 1.
Option 3) Maybe check current storage prices. Hard drives don't cost more than 0.05 USD per GB even in countries which have "empty storage media tax".

option to set the Start Point and the End Point per file.
You are better off with Option 1. Try to cut your video file with a hex editor or learn about file format specifications and you will understand why.

ZarkBit, thanks so much your reply in my post, your presence is important here, thanks all your suggestions and effort to help me! But the objective here is not slice the videos in parts after the download, but BEFORE the download, because the objective is mainly "cut" the download time, to avoid DAYS of download using an very slow internet of an poor user from an interior city of an third world country (this condition isn't my choice :D buy more HDs or an better internet is not an option here), so downloading partially you can download in 1/4 or 1/5 of the total time. Anyway thanks your reply, I'm very happy which my post have at least one reply now. :D But to be honest I don't know why I post this feature suggestions, anyone care about my poverty and needs, I know which the chance of this be implemented is more or less 0,0001% :( but I try anyway, I have some faith, but this can be my last suggestion here :(. Thanks again beloved ZarkBit, and good luck with you suggestion of the "clients blacklist", was an good suggestion! :D

Example to show why this is a bad feature request
Source video: bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_normal.mp4
What you ask for: bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_normal_good.mp4 (4 MB piece size, piece 1, piece 65 and piece 66 downloaded). Can you play this file?
What you should do: download the whole, cut the ending and end up with a working file bbb_sunflower_1080p_30fps_normal_good.mp4
Then create a new torrent and share with those who also have storage/bandwidth limits and only want to see the ending.

Partial download can be AWESOME!!!!!

Is useful too when you watch just half movie somewere, and need watch just the second part after in your home.

Like Deluge Pieces addon but per file, fine! To make it work correctly need download front and back pieces also, to make possible watch just the downloaded part.

Absolutely, but functional, Pieces extension is useless without per file setting, how know what file is you downloading, when have multiple files? Was a shame this project, but per file can be very powerful to cut off the trash, this is very common on sports events, not just mma, but most. And in the same time can save tons of bandwidth for both sides, seeder and peer, I ever delete a lot of not watched content, intros, intros, interviews, old replays and more replays, ads, hours and hours of pure trash, and after all this things the main event sometimes isn't good. I support this feature absolutely.

Thanks Tixati programmers for this piece of software, keep the good work.

This days I downloaded a movie, the end had a problem with the sound, just silence, then I downloaded again the full movie using another release, just to watch the last 15 minutes. If I had a partial download I could use surely.

Devs please add a new checkbox on Sequential Download Options, to Download Front and Tail Only, when checking this checkbox Tixati can download first the front piece to make possible watch the partial movie and after download tail sequentially, so the user can make a sequential preset setting the tail to 50-30%, basically you have sequential and partial implemented perfectly together, all-in-one. Please think about it, and I want say, version 2.72 is amazing, congratulations!

You can do all of this already from the new sequential settings in 2.72.  You can set the tail to whatever percent size you want, and then you can set the progress limit to 10% or whatever, and it will only download that much on the beginning of the file.

No, progress limit don't limit the download progress, but sequential progress, download sequentially 10% after continue downloading non-sequentially, and I can set tail to 40% but tail isn't downloaded sequentially. But thanks.

I like the partial download idea, but I don't agree with a new checkbox to "header and tail only", need just a little change in sequential download behaviour, when the user set a preset with "file tail percent" with 10% or more, tixati download a little part in the end of file (real tail), after download a little part in the start of file (header), after download sequentially the long tail (fake tail, 10%), and when long tail download finish, tixati download the rest. Tixati will use this behavior automatically just when "file tail percent" is 10% or more, if tail is 9% or less, then tixati use normal behavior, download the little tail and after the rest from the file start.

I'm using the long tail alternative to do incomplete downloads too, is an effective alternative, in preset settings have sequential progress limit, great to use just the needed amount of sequential download. Please add a preset setting to limit download progress too, to automatically stop downloads when limit is reached.
