  1. It seems uTorrent causes a problem in VLC, whenever uTorrent is open, the mouse cursor is not hidden automatically in full screen. See this thread for more details: http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=80735&start=40. This is very annoying. Also see this thread: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=94086 Could you please work with the VLC guys on a fix?
  2. @TOM_RUS, I also experience that issue, I reported it a few month ago. Makes streaming unusable for me too. But it seems to get stuck a bit less frequently on faster computers, I changed my computer to a quad core i7, and now from time to time some videos can be streamed properly, so the problem is harder to reproduce. My old computer was a dual core, core 2 duo.
  3. uTorrent 19702 on Windows 7 X64, still having the problem with streaming stuck on missing blocks. It seems uTorrent gives up downloading some blocks required for streaming after pressing the streaming button that launches the VLC player. Initially after beginning streaming, uTorrent marks a range of blocks at the beginning of the stream as required for streaming, colors them green in the pieces tab, then starts to download them with higher priority. But about a minute after launching VLC, more and more green blocks change color from green to white, and all such blocks remain white, uTorrent never requests them again, as if it forgot they exist. Then, when the streaming reaches a white missing block, the video in VLC freezes because the required data is missing. No matter how much time you wait, uTorrent will not try to download the missing block that caused the streaming to stop. If you close VLC, uTorrent immediately starts downloading the "forgotten blocks", and they become green again instead of white, as if uTorrent suddenly remembers them. If you start streaming again, the problem repeats with another set of missing blocks. The problem can be reproduced every time. I made a print screen of the pieces tab, showing the white forgotten blocks followed by a new range of green blocks just requested. I reported this problem before, all versions from the last 3 month had this problem, and I can still reproduce the problem in version 19702. This problem is making the streaming feature unusable for me.
  4. Win7 x64, 19424 - freezes a few seconds after startup, taking one CPU core to 100%. Actually all the versions from the last few months had the same problem with the CPU usage, caused by bt.determine_encoded_rate_for_streamables. As soon as I restart uTorrent with this feature disabled, the CPU usage is normal. However, I was still able to use the application in previous versions, even with the high CPU usage. Now with 19424 it completely freezes after startup, in less than 10 seconds, giving me just enough time to go to settings and disable the bt.determine_encoded_rate_for_streamables feature. I manged to disable it after 10 tries, you really have to move fast before it freezes. After restarting uTorrent with bt.determine_encoded_rate_for_streamables disabled the application no longer freezes and no longer uses excessive CPU. Now I will re-enable the feature and create a process dump when the application is in the frozen state. Later edit: dump sent to Firon.
  5. I don't seem to have any problems with "disk overloading" or "memory leaks" on version 18959. Using Windows 7 x64, default caching settings. And I downloaded a few gigabytes in the last week.
  6. I started playing with many settings to find a possible trigger for the continous 100% CPU issue, and it seems I found a workaround: - set "bt.determine_encoded_rate_for_streamables" to false. - restart uTorrent; However, as soon as I change the option back to true, even without restarting uTorrent, the CPU jumps instantly to 100% and remains there. At the time of the test I had 96 torrents in uTorrent, all idle - not downloading or seeding - out of which: 10 were not streamable, another 8 were streamable but had an error status because I moved the videos to different folders after the download was completed without informing uTorrent, and 78 were streamable and their status was finished (but less than half of them had a green round play icon, the rest had the gray square play button) ; I'm using Windows 7 x64. As an added bonus, during my search for the cause of CPU issues, I found many advanced options that I overlooked until now, and some of them sound very much like some features I was requesting, for example "bt.prioritize_partial_pieces" and the "streaming.*" options. I will test streaming as soon as possible with the "bt.prioritize_partial_pieces" option enabled to see if it makes any difference. Later edit: it doesn't make any difference. uTorrent still "forgets" that some blocks (colored white inside the pieces) are required for streaming while VLC is open, and suddenly "remembers" them and starts to download them as soon as I close VLC (the white blocks required for streaming suddenly become green as soon as I close VLC). And I'm using version 18936.
  7. I made a print screen to see what I mean about white blocks before green blocks during streaming: As you can see, pieces 16, 17, 18, 19 already have "forgotten white blocks", but uTorrent is only focusing on downloading piece 20. This was happening on a well seeded torrent, with version 18825. The strange thing is, if I wait for 10 minutes, nothing will happen. Not even one of the missing white blocks from those pieces will be downloaded. However, as soon as I close VLC, uTorrent starts downloading the pieces with "forgotten" blocks in "green" mode. This suggests there may be some locking issues between the streaming module and the download module.
  8. Using version 18825. In the last four version released alpha builds, maybe more, I'm seeing a lot of performance issues during downloads. 1. Inefficient piece download: pieces with a few yellow/white blocks are downloaded very late. Example: you have a torrent with 500 1MB pieces, each piece containing 128 blocks. The torrent starts normally, it downloads at a reasonable speed, but then it starts to develop a heap of pieces that are stuck at 126 or 127 blocks downloaded out of 128. The remaining one or two blocks are either: "yellow" (requested more than 60 seconds ago, and it keeps requesting the blocks, appearently from the same peer, because it never receives it), or "white" (for some reason, uTorrent gives up requesting the missing blocks completely). This happens even for pieces with high availablilty (over 40). In the mean time, other pieces are downloaded normally. This is very inefficient. Suppose there is one seed, and 40 peers. Each peer requests randomly one piece from the seed, and each (or a large percent) of the pieces gets stuck, let's say, at 127 out of 128 blocks. The pieces are not finished because 1% of the blocks are missing, so the incomplete pieces cannot be sent to other peers that need them. So the only source for such pieces remains the seed, slowing down the download. Most of the time such incomplete pieces remain with 1-2 blocks missing for hours, until the torrent reaches 99%. Then the download speed reaches 0, because uTorrent is still not requesting the missing blocks. This seems to be a bug of some kind, uTorrent should request such pieces from other peers, and for some reason it doesn't. The only workaround, if you don't want to wait up to one hour for uTorrent to request the blocks, is to stop and start the torrent. Then the torrent is completed instantly. What I think should be done: prioritize piece download based upon the number of completed blocks. The more blocks completed, the higher the priority. This way, pieces with 99% of the blocks downloaded will have the highest priority, and will be downloaded first, so they will be available for upload to other peers sooner, freeing the seed of this task. Also, for pieces with a small percentage of missing blocks, uTorrent should search for alternate peers more aggresively, if the peer it requested the missing block initially doesn't respond in a reasonable time. 1. Streaming stuck on some pieces: "White" blocks before "green" blocks. It seems uTorrent forgets that some blocks required for streaming have not been downloaded, and requests pieces in green mode with a higher index, even though the previous pieces with lower indexes still contain white blocks (blocks not requested). This results in the stream playback freezing when reaching the pieces with white blocks. The white blocks are not requested until the torrent reaches 99%, making streaming useless. Closing VLC, and starting streaming again fixes the problem temporarly, the piece with white blocks is downloaded, then a new piece with an higher index becomes stuck with white blocks while uTorrent forges ahead with other pieces in "green" mode. This makes the streaming feature useless. I suspect problems 1 and 2 may have the same cause. Oh, and my usual problem 100% usage of one CPU core on Win7x64. And today with version 18825 it stopped downloading a torrent after a few completed pieces, complaining that the files are in use by another process.
  9. Problems experienced with version 18429: - 100% of one cpu core used all the time Problems experienced with version 18518: - 100% of one cpu core used all the time - disk overloaded message and poor download speed a few times a day, but the hdd is actually idle. Only solved by restarting the application. Problems experienced with version 18581: - 100% of one cpu core used all the time - Crash when attempting to stream the video to vlc while downloading it. I can provide the crash dumps created by uTorrent, and a dump created manually from task manager after it crashed and was asking me if I want to send a crash report. - Not sending the crash reports to the developers when asked: "HttpSendRequest failed". - Freeze when attempting to stream the video to vlc while downloading it. I created a crash dump of the frozen application, I can provide it if needed.
  10. 18304 on Windows7 x64, still keeps one CPU core 100% busy all the time, even with no active torrents.
  11. Still uses 100% of one CPU core on Win7 x64, but seeding torrents randomly seems to be fixed.
  12. 18069, still uses 100% of one CPU core on Windows 7 x64, and now also starts torrents randomly as force seed.
  13. Build 17935 still uses 100% of one CPU core, all the time. Tested on Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Core 2 Duo T5600 @ 1.83 GHz, 4 GB RAM.

  14. I just tested the new version, it works much better, with less freezes. I was able to watch a HD video on a ISP offering bandwidth that was 33% of the bandwidth of the video, after 66% of the video has been downloaded. I experienced only a few freezes (probably less than 10), mostly in the first 10 minutes of the 60 minute video. When the video finished downloading I already watched more than 50% of the video, so this is a big improvement. It seems the "yellow blocks" issue is gone, now for the pieces near the current streaming position I see green blocks, and it works exactly as I suggested, it requests the piece, and if it's not received until the timeout, it requests it again. What I think could be done to improve this is to reduce the timeout for "green" blocks, or increase the number of "green" pieces requested (increase the size of the streaming buffer ahead of the current streaming position), thus allowing several timeouts to occur before the video freezes. I think "buffering" request for "green" pieces covering a video duration three times larger than the timeout for "green" blocks should be enough. The "streaming ready" status is still too optimistic, especially when download speed varies very much from minute to minute. When the download speed reaches a peak value for a few seconds, the estimated time to finish the download is very short, and appearently uTorrent immediately makes the "streaming ready" assesment based on that time. It compares the estimated download time remaining with the length of the video, and if there is less time remaining it activates the streaming option. I think it should do some averaging of the download speeds over the last 5 minutes or so before making this assesment, and even add a 10% (or user customisable) tollerance, i.e. only mark the video as ready to stream when the time remaining for the download is less than 90% of the video length. And it still keeps one core of my dual core CPU 100% occupied all the time, but I may be able to live with that for a while, now that streaming works acceptably.
