[ghacks] Rapidshare Capping Free User Downloads To 30Kb, Resume Disabled

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Quote:
When you try to download a file from the popular file hosting site Rapidshare lately, you may have noticed that the speed of transfer has dropped significantly in comparison to previous downloads you made. This change apparently affects free users, that is users who are not logged into the service or users with free accounts, while they download files from it. Users with premium accounts are not affected at all.

Source.

With the way things are going, I don't see Direct Downloading being around for very much longer. Pretty soon you're going to have to download game mods from torrents rolleyes.gif

Please keep any discussion of piracy out of this as this is not what this thread is intended for. Thank you smile.gif

yeah, we are going back to peer to peer instead of direct download...
The only down part is that everyone will need to seed again (which will cost, some user that are on data limit with their internet, upload limit)

Theyre going after DD sites because they cant really go after the downloaders themselves since they arent sharing with others like torrents.

Well, at least I never used rapidshare since years ago when they were a little better. When I tried to download a legal file before, it was deleted within days for unknown reason. Download was ridiculously slower and then I just never used them again. Anytime I find rapidshare links, I find it more rare to see a good link than one thats been deleted.

Why would anyone use Rapidshare nowadays with all these BS wait 1 minute before download, 1 hour after first download and the current 30kb/s speed cap? Seriously a simple google search "free file hosting" will show up tons off other much better alternatives. rolleyes.gif
