T3 or higher speed downloads
I've been trying to download files in which the speed is listed as T3 or higher. Why do these files always either open pop-ups, or just don't work at all? is there a way tto make them work? also, occasionally I'll open a quicktime video and the window where the video should play is white. I can still hear audio, but I have no picture. a screen appears then telling me to try and download stuff that supposedly will fix this. when I click the link, this page appears full of third party stuff, and I'm curious what I should download to fix this. any suggestions?

You'll find VLC more reliable for previewing & watching in general: (choose nearest mirror site) It has in-built codecs.

Yep your problem sounds like a codec plug-in issue. There's many out there. There's also DivX, XviD, 3ivx, etc.

As far as T3 goes, well there has been a conspiracy theory. lol :D

codecs, eh......

To do with the RIAA, etc. That they load up lots of fake files, fake ultrapeers, etc. And even though they're listed as T3, they actually may give 0 results back in one way or another. Most corrupt audio files come from T3 sources. But we can't bag them all because there's some very decent users out there who use T3.

one more thing....
yeah, whenever i'd download a song from limewire, it'd go straight to my i-tunes library. now, it isn't doing that anymore. what should I do?

I might have changed some option somewhere, but I dont'know. can you help?

Go to your LW preferences>iTunes>Importing & make sure this option is still ticked. It might be an idea to untick & re-tick & press apply.

There are occasions when iTunes stops importing. These are due to (1) LW being too busy. (2) iTunes doesn't recognise the format.

I use the Ogg Vorbis plugin & it works.
