Does someone use IRC for downloads?
How it compares to bitTorrent, one-click-hosters, and so on?

IRC for downloads

Never used it.

Just thought I'd say it. I dislike IRC, in general.

used it before bittorrent was invented.
speeds are _OK_ if you know where to look.
but the search just wears you down.

it can't be compared to torrenting.

XDCC and other IRC scripts were nice back in the day when BT wasn't that farspread. But today the selection of files is getting ever smaller and it's hard to find rarer stuff, especially since some channels are even more closeknit than private trackers. I don't think it's worth the hassle anymore.

depends, any method (p2p's, och's, irc,...) can be satisfactory if it offers what you need/want with good sources ('right' locations) to get the stuff

so if you find good xdcc bots you can download with, for example, xdcc klipper from a continuously updated list of packs (packets) using almost a 'one-click' method for it

or if you find good sharers in various channels you can get older released stuff, rarely available otherwise

but, irc is not mainstream or trendy so expect spartan interface, lots of typing (instead of clicking) and low searchability, slower (home) connections, queues & limits, sometimes song-by-song download and so on - if you want ease-of-use, continuous support (downloading tools or forums with links) then irc is not the right place to search

irc.

its kinda complicated to search like one link hosters sites with it..you can do it thats true..

but in my opinion dont use irc..otherwise find some sites which gave you links of freshly added or newely added softwares in one link hosters...

i download alot things via them too..more things let me know .k

downloading from irc reminds me of downloading from private ftp

the heart of sharing is FTP'S then IRC...
all groups firstly spread files over these connections.

then;

torrent and eMule

and

these are what can be seen easily...reaching is easy.

slikrapid summarised it very well.

I sometimes use xdcc bots @ rizon irc to grab some anime quickly. Works well if you know where to look... First you need to know what are you exactly looking for, then join #news first to check out quallity xdcc bots (or join channel of specific fansub group and inquire there for (un)official xdcc's) and the rest is simple as drinking water. You got link with packlist (for example (http://thoranime.org/xdcclist/global-mini/)), then you just request file that you want. The packlist in the my example is very newb friendly and will give you exactly what you need to enter in your irc client: lets say /msg THORA|Thunder xdcc send #11
This if for file number 11, which if you look at Thunder' packlist is: Akira_(1988)_[1080p,BluRay,x264,DTS]_-_THORA.mkv
Then your IRC client automatically downloads this file (in case there is noone in waiting line before you) and that is pretty much it. Quite simple and effective.

IRC downloads were quite awesome in the beginning, then it became completely overpopulated, often having to wait 2 days before the send even started.

Now i'd say it's practically dead, and started dying around the time torrents became known. And for a reason, of course! :)

hey i know some people get free rapidshare accounts nad accounts of brazzers and other porn sites by entering some specific channels nd by entring some scripts ....
the accounts are of short duration like 1 month or a week and sometimes a day but still people do it..
i know a person who does that in my college and someone knows who to do it:unsure:

About that script, hellman. I don't know because I have not swim IRC channel deeper yet.

its true that it has hidden treasures as i have mentioned it in my previous post but i don't like it either... for the 1st time i can say anon u had a good taste:lol:

Does it offer me stuff I can't find elsewhere already with the speeds I'm used to? How hard to get is it? Is it really worth the effort, and will I be able to keep up once I'm in?

Those questions have prevented me from getting into trackers I won't use, and with some changes also appear to work for IRC downloading.

fakeking
15.06.10, 08:14
Well, compare to torrents, IRC is not cool to download big sized stuff but great for smaller stuff like e-books, some crack files, some password for porn sites, etc.

IRC need a lot more work than joining a tracker. So, It can be said with IRC, you're an agent store, with tracker, you're an end - user.

some password for porn sites
Like there's not already enough porn on trackers..:rolleyes2:

Thank you for all to the contribution for this topic. I have read it -- really -- even though my post count and account activity doesn't support it. :wink2:

Anyway, I have tried IRC myself now, and the result was that it isn't the best method in the market.

Even so, I would like to know that is it more secure to use IRC than bittorrent; what do the servers and channels know about me if I am using mirc? Is it only an ip address, and my (fake) email -- or do they get some other info too, such as my system name and mac-address?

piratemeister

I used it long time ago. Is the fastest for download but sometime the bot are occupated and you are in queque. For that if you want speed uTorrent is better :top:

Tried it on couple of occasions, speeds were mediocre but I disliked that whole concept of downloading. Torrenting is way better.

IRC did kind of die off the minute torrenting started imho. Before that, it's was probably the better way to get your stuff.

Only other options was stuff like Kazaa. IRC speeds, the probability to get fakes and the quality were much better on IRC.

*remembers downloading stuff from Kazaa at the cafe 10 years ago, with a 0.3Mbps line, which was lightning-fast at the time and also didn't use the phone line*

Damn, those were the times!

There is no ratio in IRC. They send you files and you accept and that's it. If you look a bit higher though, you'll notice the convo got twisted to Kazaa suddenly

piratemeister

IRC is not a network like the p2p. You don't upload anything, you will only download files from the channel's bot.

fakeking
11.07.10, 16:08
So, the cheat addons both of you means is for irc download to make us be the first to download and give us more source to download, right?.

piratemeister
11.07.10, 16:11
@fakeking: I think that is not possible. I never used addon for IRC downloads because much more are only a virus. I join to channel, say "Hi" and request the list with command !list, then a see the list and download the files.

There is an addon for search files in the channel without see list by category, like emule search, but I never used it.

Sazzy
11.07.10, 16:31
Both of you, please reread what anon and me actually said :dabs:
You can't cheat at IRC as the bots just make queues and send files, nor can you go faster as it's only one person sending at full speed.


say "Hi" and request the list with command !list, then a see the list and download the files.

I would be careful giving such advice. Many channels do not like it if you !list and will automatically kickban you.

A lot of them demand you to use the xdcc command and just manually go through their stuff.

That addon used to cache the !list and public shouts iirc. So above note goes for this too.

Never happened to me... a lot of user do that. In any case I don't use IRC from years because I never fuond anything, only popular files wich can be easy downloaded from eMule or uTorrent.

Sazzy
11.07.10, 17:13
It's always noted in the topic. Just pointing out that you shouldn't go in and spamming !list without reading first.

piratemeister
11.07.10, 21:36
Read what ?
I salute for education but I'm not interested to chat, I would only see the list and ask for it. A lot of user don't salute... I do it for education only. Soo where is the problem if I wouldn't chat ?

Sazzy
11.07.10, 23:59
Sigh.

Read the fact that whatever you're discussing about wasn't even about IRC, at all.
