Hi, I was downloading some videos from racingflix.com and they are so freaking slow, but they have a 6$ a month or something for unlimited download of upto 100mbps speeds which is pretty good..we can create a team-bhp account and have everyone use it..whoever wants to chip in can..like even if we get 10-15 ppl the cost would be no more than 300-350Rs per year which is pretty good...I dont know what else is the best way of downloading videos which are not top gear or 5th gear or something like that...

Cheers..

will they allow simultaneous logins? if no, then it's going to be a problem. if they do, count me in. i can never get enough videos, and HTTP video hosting is dying, and really fast too. can't blame them..too expensive. though the more guys we get the better.

I have all the videos hosted at racing flix, at the moment.
And they dont update it as regularly, like 1 video a month or so.. Basically they are videos submitted by the premium members.
I have around 8 GB Worth - TopGear, 5thGear, Best Motoring, etc Videos .. about 250 Files or so.. and simultaneous logins are not allowed at racing-flix. And by the way 'Crazi4Speed' I get download speed of 7.5 - 8 KBPS download from my local cable line at racingflix, though the servers are down half the time in the day, but I just add the new vids in my FlashGet and by next day I have em all. Ofcourse if I had a broadband connection in my area, I'd definetly swipe my credit card at racing-flix, even though I have all the videos hosted there.. (on the reviews section).

Dont they block downloads from multiple i.p. addresses? I would think they have separate multiple user licences.

Even if you plan to login one at a time, your ips may be blocked!

Hey GTO,

I doubt they only let one IP address use an account, since dial up users have dynamic IP adresses (ie you get a new IP address every time u connect to the net) as opposed to a static IP address which is constant. However it is possible that if there are way too many log-ins from different IP adresses in different areas & parts of the world they might have a system to suspend the account, but im not sure how likely that is.
