Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

I'm very sorry for my lackign answers. I work by subscribing to forums, and somehow I forgot to subscribe to this most important of our boards...

Anyway: A codec is a way to encode video files (that means, it is a way to save them so they don't take too much space. A film of one hour which isn't encoded takes about 12 Gigabytes of diskspace. The same film encoded in ogg theora takes about half a Gigabyte, but with a slightly lesser quality.)

To view a film you need the codec with which it was encoded (because that codec "knows" how the data is stored and how to turn it into moving pictures again).

The types are tehformats of the files. They are similar to codecs, but they not only encode video content but all kinds.
For video the most common formats are
.avi
.mpg
.mpeg
.ogm
.mkv

The first three can be opened by almost any program. For the last two you need special plugins for some programs.

Most codecs and formats can be used with free video programs like the videolan client and the mplayer:
- VideoLAN - Free Software and Open Source video streaming solution for every OS!
- Mplayerhq.ru

Besides: Welcome to Phex and happy sharing!

I don't have a Vista running on my computer. Could you test if it works and tell us, then?

Best wishes,
Arne

Post re...

well i tried it.....it works fine...but each time when i start the program it displays a note "Phex isnt able to control or moniter the content of Gneutella network"...but after that its working fine...it gives a lot of erronous reasults during search.....

the major problem i am facing is with file downloading....i mean if i start downloading....its working (either downloading / waiting / qued) ..but when i turn of my laptop and restart downloading next day...98% of the time....i dont get a link to that down load....i tried to download about 50 files only for 2 files i got the connectivity the next day!!!! It might be the problem of the link or peer not being active...and not the problem of the Software.....

this has been my observation.....by the way i am using McAfee Security Suit 2007...but its working fine with it..no conflicts or issues...

i also feel that when it is writing to HDD its slightly freezing my laptop for 1-2 sec.....i have quite a good config of 2.0 GHz duo core AMD Turon with 1GB RAM and 80 GB SATA HDD

That note is fine. Phex is not able to monitor the Gnutella network, and it will never be able to do so.

Just keep that in mind when you do seaches

Most people are offline after a day, or their IP changed, so your observation is correct.

It could be a motherboard issue. I experience the same when I copy huge amounts of data from one disk to another.

How often does it occur?
