 Min Segment Size
Select a minimum segment (Jet, or split) size here. Sizes under this value will not be assigned any Jets (splits). The value here shouldn't be too small.

It is very simple. If you are downloading a 1megabyte (1024Kb) file, flashget will split the file into segments (parts). The program splits files into many parts and downloads them all at the same time. This method gives you high downloading speed. You can specify the minimum simultanious segments for example 10 segments, the file will then be split into 10 parts of 102.4Kb
