[Feature request] Use download mirrors to speed up downloads
« on: October 14, 2021, 08:20:24 AM »
Some software downloads super slow, like Foxit reader. It would be of great help if PatchMyPC could use multiple URLs/ sources/ mirrors for downloading software.

  • That said, I don't know if PatchMyPC already does this backend.

For instance, Foxit got two CDNs (according to https://forums.foxitsoftware.com/forum/portable-document-format-pdf-tools/foxit-reader/162003-foxit-reader-download-very-slow-so-slow-that-it-dies-other-downloads-work-fine, verified by me before writing this post):

  • cdn01.foxitsoftware.com
  • cdn02.foxitsoftware.com

URLs (that I know of) for latest installer:


I don't know if PatchMyPC built in download logic/ mechanism would handle this, but "Free Download Manager" could do it so. It's possible. :)
