View Full Version : [ubuntu] Optimise Transmission and Streaming videos, Karmic

November 24th, 2009, 12:22 AM
So I been searching around for the past few days looking for information on how to A) increase the speed and quailty of online streaming videos and B) increase the download speed of Transmission.

Iv found lots of conflicting, old, and un usable information.

Online speed test show that i have a 20mbs connection, but transmission never reaches over 200kbs and streaming videos is a waste of time.

This is a problem im sure many ppl would like to fix. Pleeease tell us how to optimise our downloads haha thanxs guys!

for tranmission you really need to port forward it as it uses nat-pmp first instead upnp which works.
switch to deluge

streaming video depends on that site server & how much traffic it's dealing with at the time, not really much you can do about it. you can try using a player with good caching that you can adjust,such as gnome-mplayer or mplayer.
