cool. it's working pretty well now. i'm getting 3 vids with between 5-20 peers total and averaging between 100 and 150 KB/sec.
probably pretty important

        i know you're working on Preview stuff, that'll be great once it's implemented. some icon/indicator should blink when a preview is ready. does this depend on the embedded player problems you were just telling me about?

probably not critical stuff for next week, but here are some initial comments:

        the locks don't seem to work yet: i'm able to move stuff from my currently downloading at the top of my queue to some place else altogether and stop the download. what are the locks supposed to do?
        in IE i wasn't able to drag and drop a video above the page fold (e.g., from the bottom of the queue to the top). i had to drag it half way and then continue moving upward.

Yeah, it takes it a while to start transferring, and sometimes it never starts. We're working on it.

Put app.jar in a directory, go to that directory at the command line, then type "java -jar -Xmx512m app.jar". Then go to in IE or Firefox, make sure you're signed in, then go to My Queue.

Ok, new jar that should work in XP IE unpatched.


Basically, the limit on connections is 10, so 3 transfers x 3 connections is 9, so that's pretty much at the limit. So what I did was do 3 transfers with 1 connecting connection each. 3x1=3. It works much better. That along with the IE image cache fix, things look more sexytime.
