Watch out for the ads, when you download something you will get a page with pop-ups. use it at your own risk.

Just dropped the desktop app

about MediaFire · · Helpful Not helpful

We have a paid membership and 99% of our uploads are through the desktop app. They just discontinued the desktop app... That means we will be discontinuing our membership. Their support is terrible, try finding an actual email address. I got better service from them through Facebook.

Removed functions without notice to paid members

about MediaFire · · Helpful Not helpful

I have an account with mediafire and I had boiled my decisions based upon my needs to two factors: cost vs storage and the ability to watch my media whereever I was.

I was told yesterday in an email from support that the reason I could no longer find the LISTEN or WATCH function is because they have removed it and it is no longer supported.

So now they are just like every other cloud storage.

When my membership is expired I will cancel and move everything over to something better.

I am pretty upset by this because what I PAID FOR I am no longer able to enjoy!

BOO TO YOU MEDIAFIRE

MediaFire has strict rules nowadays...

about MediaFire · · Helpful Not helpful
  • Password protected files have limited download times.
  • Splitted archives have limited download times.
  • Strict checking for copyright stuff.
  • More user's account has suspended.
  • Some normal files was deleted for copyright reason, maybe mistake, anyway that's bad.
  • Someone said he shared some files with another guy via PM and the file was deleted by MediaFire, how do they know this? The only possibility I guess is a random check or via referer? That's too bad!

Hands down best "shared hosting" site.

No popups, no wait times, no captcha, fast as hell. Heck I'd take any one of these penalties over anything else, if there was one.

Free but slow

about MediaFire · · Helpful Not helpful

PROS:
Good free hosting
No waiting to download
No stupid surveys

CONS:
Slow free download

I always get a speed of 400-800 kbps when using Mediafire, which I don't consider slow by any means. Sure, it's not as fast as bittorrent, but it's pretty good compared to other download websites. In my personal experience, Mediafire is faster than:

  • Hotfile
  • uploaded.to
  • Dropbox (if that counts)
  • most lesser-known downloads website (e.g. FileApe, FileDude, ge.tt)

In addition, Mediafire is on par with the speeds of Rapidshare and Megaupload.

I usually receive 100kbps compared to the usual 400+ I get from Megaupload, though I think it would be due to my location and Internet bundle (Rogers express). After my upgrade to my Internet however, I received much faster download speed of at least 400-600kbps.

I just downloaded a file from Mediafire at 800 KB/s. I need no more convincing.

Unlike other downloading sites, Mediafire is straight to the point. You can always access the download link directly, and there's no time limit between downloads. It's quite nice.

Not like the other file-sharing sites

about MediaFire · · Helpful Not helpful

Unlike other file-sharing sites, there's no waiting for downloads, and supports multiple simultaneous downloads. But instead, there are ads in the download screen.
A nice tradeoff, I would say.

The Premium version supports bulk-downloads, and uploading of files upto 2GB in size, among others.

Also, it's easy to copy files shared in Mediafire through other users into your own account, and you can set files uploaded as "private" if you don't want other people downloading it.
