Features

BitComet is a P2P program that enables users to upload and download files over the internet using BitTorrent’s file sharing protocol, connecting with a peer-to-peer network of other users downloading similar files – this increases download speeds while improving reliability; plus the program is free and does not contain spyware or adware!

This program stands out from other BitTorrent clients with its extensive features, which set it apart. It supports numerous file formats, magnet links, DHT networks, FTP downloads and chat capabilities as well as an in-built antivirus that scans downloaded files. Users can set download priorities, limit upload/download speeds and fast resume their downloads if needed.

BitComet stands out with its Long-term Seeding technology, enabling users to continue getting seeds even after original seeders have left. This ensures faster download speeds and ensures completion even if no available seeds remain.

BitComet stands out with its ability to automatically search and download information from other users’ comments and snapshots, which can then be seen in the Comments and Snapshots tabs of the Detailed Info Pane. This feature can save both time and bandwidth as it removes the need to manually search for similar data.

Software users can also configure it to automatically connect to high-speed seeding servers, allowing for quicker download speeds. This option can be toggled on or off in the Options menu.

This application can be configured to start automatically upon Windows startup and become the default torrent client for a specified IE Web browser, always associate itself with Magnet URIs, and begin downloading their associated.torrent files when clicked upon. Lastly, it can be set to remove port mapping established when connecting to a NAT or firewall when exited – these settings can all be found stored in either Program Files or Application Data folder depending on what settings are chosen by users.

When it has finished downloading, double-clicking its installer file will launch an installation wizard to guide you through the rest of the process.

Once installed, you’ll be ready to connect to the BitTorrent network and begin downloading and sharing files. We suggest that you use a proxy server to prevent your IP address from being logged, while you can customize settings in the Options menu for downloading files; alternatively you could even choose another drive if desired – just make sure it has permissions for creating new folders!

BitComet boasts an intuitive design and provides an efficient file transfer process by using multiple download servers. The download queue has been carefully constructed to prevent bandwidth-wasting loops, while its intelligent disk caching system reduces read/write frequency for optimal hard disk protection against high-speed downloads.

This P2P sharing program also allows you to preview media files before they are completely downloaded, providing the opportunity to assess its quality and language before full download occurs. Furthermore, support for multiple media formats including WMV and AVI is offered as well.

BitComet can be used either locally on your network, or over the Internet using a proxy server.
