This is (obviously) some geek making it very difficult to authorize a download. How many times do you have to verify something to prove that there really is a person on the other end and "Not A Robot". Keep2shit uses the same crap. It makes you wonder if these filehosts are really in the business of being a filehost.

They're in the business of selling premium accounts. That's why they make things so difficult for free users.

probably more interested in collecting your personal info (which is another good reason why they should be banned).

I have to agree about forums banning these trash filehosters. I joined another forum that will only permit filehosts like Mega, Depositfiles, MediaFire, etc. some of which don't even require a captcha check. Does anyone remember how bad RapidGator used to be? While they still have lots of room for improvement, it's much better than it used to be. The only way these junk filehosts will clean up their act is to see their membership fall off.

i have two forums (completely unrelated to this) and allow only the following google drive, zippyshare, mediafire, file factory, ovh/hubic, pcloud, workupload (which i think everyone should try), box, gavitex, sync, dropbox, mega and deposit files (as a last resort). all are easy to use, vary in speed obviously and in storage spaces but nearly two years on we're still waiting for our first complaint about filehost choice.

Exactly. It's not as though us tightwad free users are struggling to find
a free host that works, with decent download speeds. There are plenty
of them out there, so why do we tolerate this crap?

That's a cute little feature of theirs to annoy you. There is, in fact, a workaround that they have provided: when it pauses, you click the "Download now" button below the countdown, ignore the scolding that you gotta pay for a premium account, and the countdown continues. I've seen that happen occasionally at some small number of seconds to go, and it happens very frequently at 2 seconds.

Another sleazy thing they've been doing recently (at least I don't remember this happening until recently) is to put a lot of cycle-gobbling spin-loops in their javascript for the captcha, or to tell the captcha provider to do that if it's 3rd-party. It used to take half of forever to get through the Filechoker captcha successfully, assuming that it was possible in the first place, and now it takes all of forever, so that the only reasonable thing to do is to chuck it and say "To hell widdit" and find the file that you're after somewhere else if possible. And, of course, to try to persuade uploaders everywhere not to use that sleazy outfit any more.

It does seem that every captcha provider has an option selectable by the web server that invokes it to "Annoy the poor user as much as possible." It's a lot like the customer databases of AT&T and all the Baby Bells and their corporate descendants, for decades now: there's obviously a boolean field in the customer record, settable per-customer by any telco employee and looked at by all call-center operators seeing that record, that says "Make as much trouble as possible for this customer, and give him or her a runaround."

filejocker is always a shitty host. Even with premium you cant get good speeds


people should only use 1fichier, mega or at least rapidgator

That's interesting. I don't have lots of knowledge about it, but I do have the same feeling. Some captchas are just not possible to resolve, despite I try my best. "Road sign" captchas are just driving me crazy. I'm actually giving up on some downloads.

I don't see any solutions here. There are many enthusiasts, collectors etc who will likely share their stuff on good and friendly hosts. Folks who are trying to earn something will put their stuff somewhere with high pay outs, which often means - please try again to resolve this road sign captcha or pay.

These captchas are just being abused basically.
