Target version:040 - FarfarAway


I think it would be good If JDownloader can download a file from several hosters at the same time. What I mean is that if you have a file that is 500 MB and there are 5 hosters that have this file, let's say they all support resume, then JDownloader will start to download the file from 1 hoster and then add more connection to the file but from the other hosters.
One file will be downloaded form several hoster all simultaneous.
I dont really know if I explanied it correctly.

I'll give a example, sometimes when I have a movie file that can be found on several hoster , I get the direct download link from each hoster and put all of them in orbit as mirror links (of course I make sure they resumable first.), and the orbit downloader download the file from all the hoster as mirror links, and make many connection to the file each connection form different hoster.
