Really slow EmuMovies download speed through LaunchBox (EmuMovies Lifetime Supporter)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Greetings,

I have a lifetime supporter license on EmuMovies and an expired license on LaunchBox.

I tried to download HQ media for a MAME set and its taking forever. I did a speed test on LaunchBox v9.1 and EmuMovies Sync v2.53. Theres a big difference in speeds. For example, I tested "Mushihime-Sama Futari Black Label: Another Ver" HQ video. Through the task manager, I can observe that the download speed on launchbox is 2 Mbps and on EmuMovies Sync it reached 40 Mbps (my ISP speed). Is there a fix in later versions or a workaround for this issue without doing it manually? The only reason I bought a Lifetime Supporter license on emumovies was to take advantage of the speed. I read on launchbox front page both were partners, so this shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks

Just deleted and downloaded those same videos (latest version of Launchbox). Got over 95Mbps. I do not recall seeing any network issues reported. I have seen in the past overseas (Non U.S.) users comment on slower speeds.

Internet connections are really finicky things, unfortunately, especially now with Internet neutrality abolished in the US (what a ridiculous mess that is). I've already proven that the LaunchBox traffic is being throttled by ISPs, so I wouldn't be surprised if EmuMovies traffic was as well. It sucks to have to pay money for a VPN, but that may be worth trying, as that gets around ISP sniffing and throttling.

If only big corporations weren't screwing everybody over... :/

EDIT:

Ok, I did some investigation on wireshark. The mirror on launchbox is from Netherlands and the mirror from EmuSync is from Cloudflare on San Francisco. Is it possible to change it? Also notice that emusync uses 2 download threads.

Cloudflare is just a caching/anti-DDOS service that EmuMovies uses. I'm not quite sure how it all works, but I would guess that it would jump back and forth between the two sources from time to time.

We may add multiple download threads here at some point. I added that recently for the app downloads but haven't put them in for media downloads just yet.

Multiple download threads will be cool.

I added this to my host file 104.25.37.13    api.gamesdbase.com

Now its much faster when downloading movie files. On wireshark, I observe it alternates with this other address 104.238.216.106 from Las Vegas.
