As some of us will spend a loooong time waiting to open our Birthday Bundles (due to painfully slow download speeds).

Can anyone recommend some good accelerators (other than a round trip to Romania) to speed up our downloads.

It’s not advised to used those for envato downloads.

Technically you can’t really accelerate downloads. A download manager can make use of an improved bandwidth allocation algorithm though.

I use Chrome, built in DL manager works nicely. Then again if it’s some insanely large item I just start it at 1am and goto bed ’:|

Hey Everyone,

I strongly advise you not to use download managers/accelerators on the marketplaces. Doing so can flood the server and cause your download limit for that day to be reached.

If you know what you’re doing, a download manager can be quite helpful for slower connections. Just set it to only make one connection to the server and then you’ll be able to take advantage of the other features download managers offer (like resumed downloading, etc). If you’re not familiar with how to do this though, look it up before you start using one as per the warnings at the page Drew posted. I think newer browsers have pause/resume capabilities anyway though.

I use Speed Download 5 for Mac. A single connection to the server usually provides plenty of download speed. Although, I’ll be honest, I use more than one connection when reviewing so I can download submissions as fast as possible to spend more time actually reviewing the file. That’s just for work files though.
