Download movies from Launchbox or Emusync?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been asked before.  Didn’t see an answer.

 

Is it faster to download Hd movies from EmuSync or directly from within Launchbox?

And is it in normal range of time to take 30+ hours to download movies for 1 system? I have 100 MBs fiber connection.

 

thanks for the help!

In my experience it depends on the system. With some have such large libraries it can take quite a while. Also depending on the size of the videos being grabbed. What sorts of transfer speeds are you seeing?

@keithj101 Actually based on the way it works, multiple download threads, faster queries, etc its always faster to download using our sync app.  Jason has said he would redo the way LB downloads content sometime in the future but as far as I know there is no ETA

If using EmuSync, how do you organize it to be able to use it in LaunchBox afterwards? Do you have add them manually or do the file names already match up when you grab metadata with LB?

It names the videos the same as your roms.  Once downloaded move videos to your launchbox videos folder.

Sweet moses. Downloading via launchbox box is so slow. I'm on 100mb line and have been downloading for 8 hours and am only 1/5 through my roms.

After I upgrade my account to get access to your video files, I will try to make a comparion between the two, and report back. I would think Emu's own solution would be at least as good as Launchbox (being the content provider), but I am waiting to see ?

I know the thread is kind of old, but is it still better to download from the EmuSync app than through Launchbox?

It is faster to use the sync app, but you have to manually move the files over

Is it worth it? Like, is the download speed through the sync app that much faster to make the hassle of moving the files over worth it?
