For some reason, when I queue up downloads for multiple devices (or the same device), if there is any file that needs to be converted before it transfer it, it won’t transfer any files until all conversions are finished. Any reason it won’t transfer the files that don’t need to be converted while it is converting the other files?

And why should one devices downloads affect another devices downloads?

Hi, it sure can do both at once. But in some cases it may take a little time for the device to start downloading.

In my case, I started lining up files to download. It started transferring files. I then added a file and it needed to be converted. All transfers stop ( froze actually) and did not resume. Transfers didn’t resume until I removed the ones that were stuck transferring and added another one that didn’t require conversion to transfer.

@legallink do you still feel you can't convert and transfer at the same time?

I haven't tested this of late.  Let me check with the newest betas

@Luke, I can't even get anything to indicate it is transcoding anymore, I've been trying to put all sorts of random settings, I even tried downloading avatar, but it goes straight to "transferring".  And unfortunately (/s) its transferring much faster than it has previously.  If you could make it a little slower and less compatible with codecs I could test this feature.

To force it to transcode I would just try lowering the download quality setting.

@Luke it appears to transcode and download at the same time. What I mean is that it is downloading the movie it is transcoding relatively simultaneously. Note that on the beta it is also giving me an updated transfer %. It will also download a separate movie at the same time so all seems to look good.
