Smile Run another program, during wait time

I am a recent user of JDownloader. I have begun to love this program, as I continue using it.
Thanks so much!

I would like to request a feature.
It would be great if JDownloader could start a program like uTorrent, when it is waiting and not downloading anything.. and close it, once the download begins.

This would help me to keep the download always going when my computer is on.
It would be especially helpful, when a lot of small files are being downloaded, and the file hosting service makes me wait between every file.

cheers!

Hey good idea.
What jd team would have to do:

Implement starting a programm when waittime is active and starting a programm when the waittime is over

What you have to do:
JD can start programms but closing them is another thing so you would have to make a .bat file which terminates the utorrent.exe (jd starts this file when Waittime is over so utorrent is closed).

This is how i think it would work.

Cool

This requirement means that the event manager should also be able to start an external program or script when a download starts. I'm not sure whether that event existed in the Event Manager.

The script should be able to exit or slow down the download traffic of another download program. I don't know whether that's possible with µTorrent...

Another solution to your requirement would be to use a traffic shaper.

Another related thread is "Can i give JD priority over bandwidth?"

Thank you very much for the tips.
The external apps that Remi mentions don't work well for me.
I would like to know if the feature would be implemented, or if there is any other workaround.

Thanks!

They just dont do what I need: close to nil download speed for uTorrent when JDownloader is downloading something, otherwise full speed.

Cool

If you know your average maximum jD download speed, i.e., the speed when jD literally stops µTorrent or other applications to connect to the Internet, you could set the maximum speed (Speed label at the bottom of your jD window) below that average maximum speed.

Your other applications will then take the remaining bandwidth.
