Filtering file types??? How to get more options for filtering!!!?
In my older version of Limewire (4.8... i think) after I browsed a host I could select a file catagory like video, image, program etc.. and then filter again by specific extension under "type". In the new version that I just downloaded you can still filter the "type" under a general search but when you browse a host the "type" changes to "artist" no matter what file catagory you are looking at ie video, image, program etc.. . Is this a setting that I have wrong or was this a change in limewire itself???

I haven't noticed that at all. It should still work as it did. I frequently use the browse feature & then filter by file type as you do.

I'm not sure I 100% understand your problem actually. When I browse, I think it shows all types. Then I filter to the file type I'm after.

Edit: when you start browsing someone, the audio filter shows 1st by default. But others will show.

Here is what is happening
Started limewire..did a search..on the left side of the screen there three sections. Genre..Artist..and Album, all with selectable catagories under these headings. Now I browse a host... again there are three sections . MEDIA..Artist..and Album but the selectable catagories are gone except for the area under media where listed is audio, programs, images, and video. If you select images, programs, documents, or video the bottom two catagories never change.

With the OLDER version of limewire if you selected "video" the next catagory below would have then broken down as wmv, avi, mov...etc. If you selected "documents" the next section down would have listed doc, pdf, txt, etc.... Then if you selected "doc" for example you would only see the files with that extension listed

In the new version this does not happen. I cant imagine that the upgraded version would have had less functionality so I thought maybe there was a setting that I was missing......Thanks!

I don't recall the separation of video types. Which version are you running now, & which version were you using which had these options?

Apparently the options are still there. I didn't know about this. Was informed by one of the LW devs.

Right-click (control-click for mac) on the small left corner circle & options will appear for what you'd prefer to show in the filter.

Quote: "you can change what they're filtering on by clicking on the circle on the top-left of each box. You can minimize them by clicking on the arrow on the top-right of the box."

And in the same way you can apply different filters to other types of media. Here's an example of bit rate filtering with audio files.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows how I can tell which Regional Code is attached to the files? I downloaded a movie that will not play on my DVD player. It needs Regional Code 1 or All. How do I do this?

regional code
If you are from the usa then you want ntsc european uses pal. Try opening the file by right clicking it and choosing OPEN WITH - try the different players in your choice. There is also the possibility it wont open because it isnt a media file at all. For example windows media or showtime may not work and open the file protecting your computer from erratic behavior. Unfortunately there are some people who will try and send out a virus or worm. Your antivirus program , windows media player , showtime etc wont just start playing it if it doesnt recognize it as mpg avi mpeg etc. It may ask you first with a warning or the player will just shut down. Try staying away from videos under 40mb.
