Some people seems to be using this wikipedia as an advertisement for their software. Gigaget is just a third party mod version of the software. This is not an alternate name. Maybe the ones who added this title just want to promote the software. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Animekill (talkcontribs) 01:18, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Somebody please amend it. Someone wrote gigaget is an alternate title. but i do not think so. this should be another software. please check what it is and change it back.

Wrong title/content[edit]

The Xunlei is a software, not a company. The company that developped Xunlei is called Sandai technologies Inc.(三代科技 In Chinese)--Vintei 15:56, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

It renamed from Sandai to Xunlei in May 2005.(Stated here in Chinese) --Voidvector (talk) 07:40, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Used as Bit Torrent Client[edit]

October 16 2007.

Seen in use as a Bit Torrent client.

No mention of this anywhere so is a hybridised client the same as has recently been done by the FlashGet download manager which does not reciprocate connections, just downloads off of Bit Torrent and not upload back and falsifies data reciprocation causing data to be regarded as trash in Bit Torrent clients.

Given known nature of this software this seems likely and is indicated here

Bit Torrent users beware, this thing is a hybrid that will cause tons of trash data when connections are allowed to it the same as FlashGet!


Im not sure about upload, if leave to himself this program will eat a lot of upload bandwitch. and there is nowhere a upload limit setting.

Even if you use a external tool to limit the upload i noticed the program is really aggressive in opening connection to other peers. If you add a torrent with a high number of peers it will try to open a lot of connection basicly killing my router. Basicly use something else.

This reads like one big advertisement[edit]

This whole article at the moment reads like one big advertisement for Xunlei. It doesn't appear encyclopedic at all. It includes too much hyperbole; as an example, look at my changes to the P2SP section. When you squeeze out the sweet-talk and keep to the facts, I could combine the 4 paragraphs into one. It also seems to contain a lot of Original Research.

It's almost as if an employee of the company that produces Xunlei has written all of this. I absolutely apologise if I am false... although it still stands that a lot of this article should probably be re-written. I haven't got the time to re-write it all at the moment, but I have made a start with the P2SP section. Gwatts88 (talk) 23:32, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

You might want to browse through the history; the quality has gone up and down. --HamburgerRadio (talk) 23:41, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, the software is an absolute pile of shit. I live in China, the Chinese people I know would never install this filth on their hard-disk, not just because of the mal and adware bundled in it, but because the company supplies every last bit of information about your practices, and what is on your HD to the (Chinese) Government.

Someone remove malicious link[edit]

Reference link number 1 is malicious. It managed to deliver a payload through firefox to my machine allowing it to corrupt some necessary files, causing my Ubuntu system to fail to boot and push the payload further, my Linux Mint system to lose the installed kernel, as well as my OpenSUSE machine. -- (talk) 10:31, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Somehow I doubt that. --antilivedT | C | G 10:58, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Final Combat[edit]

Xunlei is developing a game called "Final Combat" it is a direct rip off of Team Fortress 2 and Battlefield: Hero's. The models, weapons, and gameplay are all ripped from Team Fortress 2, and where applicable, reskinned. The maps are cut and pasted Battlefield: Hero's maps. In their official statement they claimed that Valve, the developers of Team Fortress 2, stole from them (Xunlei) even though Team Fortress 2 was released in 2007. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:19, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

This only happened because the game went free and the gold farmers in japan got bored and reskinned a game that i happen to care alot about. This new "final combat" is direct rip-off. the half the characters shown so far didnt even have stories, aside from "firebat" a direct rip of pyro that, to be fair, i liked. But yeah. someones going to get sued. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:40, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

File Sharing or Criticism ?[edit]

qoute : "Experience[whose? clarification needed] has shown that Xunlei version refuses to upload any data for a torrent that has only two leechers (i.e., when the only seeder is offline). All Chinese ISPs limit BitTorrent bandwidth, as a result the Chinese users can't upload as the rest of the world <>. Furthermore, the client sequentially requests pieces, which goes against the distributive nature of P2P." The paragraph is unclear. What do ISPs have to do with Xunlei ? Is the 2nd sentence related to the 1st ? Or should all these sentences be moved to the Criticism section ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Preroll (talkcontribs) 19:34, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
