  1. 1. What is your preferred method of downloading?



Recommended Posts

Torrents anytime..don't require much as all you need to do is to add them to the client (or just us scripts if you don't even want to do that), XDCC is an viable option and just big NO for filehosts...after MEGA fucked up their policies i don't think there's any worth the hassle.

DDL (Preferably something like Google Drive which won't limit free users.) followed by typical torrents.

 

Never tried Private Trackers (Well... it's private/invite only? so... can't exactly just 'give it a try' after all). They seem pretty nice from what I've heard/seen though from a friend who's in one. Don't know about XDCC, seen it in recent but haven't bothered learning/trying it.

 

Torrents or DDL haven't really failed me, except when I'm trying to find old stuff. No seeds / uploaded years ago and the filehost has terminated it. So I don't have any particular rush to try/goto other methods.

this is the best private tracker for anime content (if you're not looking for full blurays/dvds)- https://animebytes.tv/register/apply you can join by filling their application, it's pretty easy.

Also i recommend best tracker for cartoons in full DVD9/DVD5/MKV- http://cartoonchaos.org 

 

Notice: Invites are very rare, they are open signup only at december 17 till 20.  Open signup also very rare. *

 

* They are can open or can't open.

CartoonChaos is barely accessible and as far as open registrations go it happens rarely (very), if someone wants a show form cartoonchaos just shoot me a PM and i'll get it fore you (given it's there on cartoonchaos).

1fichier can be pretty good if you can find an easy way to download files without any limits. Well, in my case I didn't need a premium account, I just DL'd like it was nothing. And it was right under my nose all this time, lol.

 

Also, I'm totally digging Google Drive. OneDrive and Amazon Drive were good at one point, but there were some setbacks.

Torrent - 75%.

XDCC - 20%.

I like both of them but I personally think that using torrent is more simple.

Various FileHosts - 5%(Only if I can't find what I want on Torrent & XDCC).

I defintely use torrents the most (Though I only do so through private trackers). After that I'd have to say DCC and then Mega/GDrive. Any other filehost I'll just ignore entirely.

 

However, if torrents don't have what im looking for then the other two usually never do either. Therefore I rarely use them.

 

the only exception is a site I use that has Mega links neatly organized on upload pages with posters, summaries and such. Makes copying the links and JDownloader detecting them too easy.

Since my last post, a friend invited me into a private tracker (Also got into a few that opened up on my own). It's definitely nice for getting older stuff that lost seeds on the public side. (General/TV Trackers. I did get in AnT too but I don't really think about it since it's appears to be Hardcore Sub focused. I prefer Dub over Sub if it's available. So I don't really think about going to it.)

 

I also learned XDCC/gave it a try since last. Got a few things through XDCC, definitely nice.

 

My preference is still the same though. DDL (Google Drive preferred, MediaFire 2nd (MediaFire doesn't limit like MEGA, does it?) then MEGA. Haven't really seen any other filehost that's viable in my use as a free user) then I'd say XDCC (I guess that's new for my preferences) then Torrent.

 

So File Host (GDrive/MediaFire preferred) > XDCC > Torrent (Public) > Torrent (Private). I only prefer public over private first since most stuff is stuff I'd prefer to download to my seedbox then snag off my seedbox and then get it off the seedbox right away so it won't take up space since I typically don't want to archive whatever (Like downloading episodes week to week. I download and watch right away, I don't keep). So having to seed to 1:1 or for like 2 weeks to avoid getting a blemish on my record kinda interferes with that... probably wouldn't mind as much if I had a larger seedbox -- but I don't, so... I download what I can public over private. My seedbox is doing the downloading either way and I go under VPN to get the torrents, so not like I'm worried about my ISP seeing the public activity. Although, have been unprotected getting stuff for years and my ISP has never said a thing. I just go under my seedbox's OpenVPN since it's there to be on the safe side. May as well use what's available to me.

I prefer using file hosts. Never used to be this way (torrents were my preferred method), but a MEGA subscription changed all of that.
