Speedbit video accelerator problem?

by erick4good / November 9, 2009 2:38 AM PST

I've been trying to use Speedbit video accelerator to speed up the buffering times when trying to watch youtube videos & other video sharing sites. But lately, I believe, that speedbit has been blocking youtube, I dunno why or what else it could be. Has anyone else experienced this problem or similar? I've already cleanly un-installed & re-installed the application & it kept on blocking my youtube, although it wasn't blocked when I completely un-installed it at 1st.

speedbit is logging every download in the directory under speedbit-files. I have emailed them for an explaination but they are playing dumb. yes I had trouble downloading video files with dap and disabled thier video downloader.If they do not aknowledge their spying I am going back to bitcomet.they want you to pay to erase the files they are logging.

Since it would have to note what files it is accelerating it sounds proper for it to make such a list.

I could see some could take this badly!

This is Jonah from the SpeedBit team. SpeedBit Video Accelerator is designed to speed up your video loading time. If your videos are getting stuck there are a number of reasons why that could be happening. First we recommend installing the latest version of SpeedBit Video Accelerator. If the problem remains, I recommend you email the SpeedBit support team at support@speedbit.com. In the email you should let us know what operating system and browser you use to help us understand the issue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
