    Dear Dela,

    Thanks in advanced

    Could be one of those fake ones maybe? Check the "length" of the film. usually where it says "[played_so_far]/[total_length]"

    One example is... erm... random... 4.0/20.0sec which means 4 seconds have passed in this movie and the total length of time is 20 seconds.

    If the length is 24sec then the file is fake. If its over an hour then there is probablt something wrong with ur pc playing it.

    Thank you all for the support.
    1. The file was downloaded with eMule v027c.
    It is mpeg file, when playing it with win media player 9.00 it shown as the total time is 28 sec,and I can see only the first seconds of it, but if I move the moving icon to the middle I can see another 28 sec or what left from the 28 sec but this time is from the inside of the movie.
    Each time I drag the corser I see other parts of the full movie but only for few sec left.
    I also find out that in real player or in Quick time I can watch the complete movie (1h 12m).
    As I said I can watch the movie but I cant understand why not in WIN MEDIA PLAYER.
    KINDEST REGARDS

    I dont understand if I should do the search in the sharereactor site and then when I see the results ,click to download them?
    Or to search via eMule Filedonkey?
    And what is the diferences?
    I dont see any improovment in the speed between these options or the regular server search.
    Thanks Dela.

    on sharereactor when you find a release, click on the file to download when it takes you to another page, click on the ed2k link!
