Wow... 2 gigs ??
« on: May 09, 2008, 05:56:29 AM »
I downloaded the mpg of WorldEnoughandTime and found the ending was cut off.  I decided to download again in case it was a glitch in the downloaded file.

I left it running, figuring it would be finished in a short time - but I've just realised the mpg is 2031.4 MB !!  I've already downloaded half of it.

Is this correct?  2 gigs?

Or is this totally wrong and should I cancel and retry?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I'm at 12% of what it says is a 1.98 gig file.

A full hour plus of audio and video at this quality, I believe it.  Having to redownload now since the first attempt only got about 600MB.  That's what I get for clicking and going to work just trusting it'll be done when I get back.  Not sure what interrupted it, but I didn't notice until I got 20 minutes into it and it abruptly ended.  Grr.  I was laughing my ass off too.  Hurry up, file!

Ok, well, it's not just me! 

If we're going to have a lot of these 'Rifftrax Presents' it's time for me to look at a nice big external drive.

Lucky for me, I'm not a nice guy. :)

No, I'm just buying the CT disks.  Gives me something I can play on any DVD player in the house, with no additional work on my part!

And kudos to the CT crew for making the disks region 0!  Always nice when someone thinks of us poor Europeans.

The external drive is tempting, but then again when the next one of these gets released, that's already enough to make burning a disc worthwhile, so if I need the space I can get it cleared up soon enough.   ;D  22%, I can just hear my router chugging along "I think I can I think I can I think I can"

Yep on Consumer-grade cable (like Roadrunner) you should be able to download 2 gigs in 30 minutes, no more than an hour (170kB/s). If you're getting slower download speeds than that, I would contact your provider.

And here I thought from this title that this thread would be like "Oh cool guys!  You offered us two different gigs (Star Trek and Dark Water) in the same night!"

It only took me half an hour to download so TS is right on.

Download the Divx version. It's High Quality, and only 712 Megs.

That is also my recommendation :)  Or the ipod version, but DivX is usually my favorite.

...

My first attempt was moving along nicely, but it ended prematurely... and i knew that it wasn't the complete file. My second attempt didn't seem to actually be downloading at all. And i set up my third before going to bed last night, since it seemed to take forever.

It's a pretty big file, so a decent download time is expected. But if Rifftrax Presents is going to be adding a lot of VOD content, i think a checksum or making the exact total file size available to the customers would be a good idea.

I wasn't complaining about the file size.  In fact, I'm glad that they didn't let large file size keep them from releasing an hour long video.

It didn't take me too long to download it.

Mine took at least two hours to download, possibly three (fell asleep before it finished) but that's pretty par for the course with our service lately, we've been having talks with them as it is.
