Re: Download video file in chunks not working

For me, 64K is a nice compromise.


You can probably go higher if you have 3G or WiFi connection.  As long as you do not exceed 256KB I am confident that you will not exceed any connection limits and in fact for things like video files, the size can be larger.  However the downside of larger sizes is that you tie up larger buffers on device plus if it fails you have more to retransmit.


That said, 64 KB is a size that I made up, perhaps other people have different recommendations.  .
