    Allocation of net to different programs

    If I'm downloading a torrent while streaming music, and I want to make sure the audio doesn't skip (i.e. "make sure the streamer gets enough bandwidth to do its stuff, and give the rest to Transmission"), what do I do?

    Is it easy?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Most bittorrent tools let you specify how much bandwidth you allow for the downloads. If you are streaming audio, there are a few factors there - the speed of the feed (higher resolution == higher bandwidth), as well as the playback tool you are using. Myself, I use VLC. It has a lot of controls for this sort of thing. Honestly, my 128kbps (high speed) audio feeds don't skip, even when I am playing back video at the same time. So, that begs the question as to whether or not you are having issues.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
