Megadownloader v1.7 - HELP!

Postby Bambacha » 06 Jun 2017, 17:52

MegaDownloader 1.7 no longer bypasses the bandwidth limit. Reddit posts can confirm this, so the program is useless now.

Downloaded with MegaDownloader last night and this morning, both times were more than 5 GBs, and had no problems at all with the limit. You should not remove the links yet as the limit might apply only to some.

Downloaded 1.bin and 4.bin (8 GBs) last night within half an hour. Downloaded 2.bin, 3.bin, 5.bin and the .exe this morning within an hour (11 GBs+) without changing IP or having any error message, and I don't have a premium account with Mega.

Their patching might have affected their premium customers and they might had to setback?

Nice. I didn't know exactly when it changed, but I proceeded to download X:Rebirth and encountered ERROR in many incomplete pieces when downloading them with MD v1.7. I searched for answers and found the reddit post.
Clearly you can bypass this error by changing your IP (if it is dynamic) by unplugging and plugging the router, or by scripting. Since the vast majority of users don't fullfil those 2 criteria to bypass the problem, the program is now useless.

It would be immensely gratifying if ALL uploaders upload to non-subscription, non-bandwidth-limiting services,like cloud.mail.ru, or at least openload.co.

Or you can use VPN (tested with: MEGASync). If you get the 5GB limit message that you need to buy pro or wait 9 hours as example, exit the MEGASync completely, open your VPN>>switch to a location near your's & open MEGASync again and your download should proceed like nothing happened!

Just tested it with a 50GB game, and it worked fine. Hope I could help out too! :drinks:
