Megaupload
« on: August 12, 2005, 23:07:11 »
This was recommended from Bartabas in the "Other voices" subforum. It seems this service is better than yousendit.com cos it does not allow to block the files after downloading (some bad users may download the gig and then block the files)

http://www.megaupload.com/

The only limit is that just allow to upload files up to 250 MB (but this is far enough for a mp3 gig).

Cheers

David.

Thanks Dave. I think i will use this-one in the future because I had some troubles with "yousendit" in the last time. Unfortunatly megaupload is very slow but if it's more safer than it's okay.

Hola David,  :)

thanks for the info but I have the same problem as the others with megaupload, it was extremely slow which wouldn't have been so much trouble for me (I could wait until the files uploaded), moreover uploading process was broken several times when I tried to upload last night (GMT+1). Anyway I 'll be trying of course and "never never never never never never give up"!  :D

agreed... I have a T3 broadband connection and megaupload is STILL the slowest.  We're talking 6kb/s... outside of the Hotel Conrad show, I refuse to download from megaupload.

Megaupload? Too slow.
Yousendit? Support only 25 downloads...
It's difficult to say what's better way to download.

yes, personally i want to take back some of my previous bitter words, because recently i've noticed that the upload/download rate really varies a lot sometimes: today i might get a 9+ hour estimate on some file but if i try again tomorrow it might be less than 2 hours with the same file...
so it's just a matter of waiting around for the best download opportunity sometimes but since there is no limited number of downloads on megaupload that doesn't matter so much, at least i have adapted to it
- and of course, it's for free

Dear all,
in last period I had a lot of problems in uploading shows with Megaupload. I mean that the uploading process stops after few minutes (only 2 or 3 MB). I tried with IE and Mozilla Firefox browsers.
It's only a problem of my connection or someone else have it?
If I don't resolve this problem I can't share anything!!!! 
Someone can help me? :smth100

Thanks
