 Once the plugin is installed and enabled in BitComet'​s options, if you check the "//​Search for eMule sources//"​ check-box on the properties page of the task, when you add a torrent in BitComet, it will automatically search for that resource in the eDonkey and Kad networks, too. Once the resource is found, BitComet will concurrently download from all available sources (BitTorrent,​ eMule and Kad peers) into the same file(s). BitComet will also upload the content when requested, to the eDonkey and Kad networks through eMule plugin, thus enabling true cross-protocol file-sharing. Although eMule is installed as a plugin for BitComet it can also be used as a standalone client (either by clicking the "Show eMule plugin"​ button on the Options page or by simply starting the executable file) in order to seek and retrieve files from the eDonkey Network. Once the plugin is installed and enabled in BitComet'​s options, if you check the "//​Search for eMule sources//"​ check-box on the properties page of the task, when you add a torrent in BitComet, it will automatically search for that resource in the eDonkey and Kad networks, too.

-"One advantage of eMule is large user base, currently averaging 3 to 4 million peoplewhich share some 4 billion files, which makes it excellent ​for finding rare content"(([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMule#eMule_compared_to_other_p2p_networks|Wikipedia - eMule]]))Downloads from the eDonkey Network are usually slower that those in the BitTorrent Network, however for torrents ​which do not have any more seeds, eMule might prove to be the useful aid in finishing the download ​of those rare torrents you found so hard on some site+There are 2 ways how BitTorrent task can have support for downloading from the eDonkey & Kad Networks: 
 +  * For torrents created with BitCometif at the creation time of the //​.torrent//​ file the option "//​Calculate ED2K link for each file//" ​was enabled ​(which is its default state) then an "​ed2k"​ key containing an 128 bit eMule hash will be calculated and included into the //info// dictionary of the //.torrent// file, for each file of the torrent. (See [[inside_bitcomet#torrent_file_format|Torrent file format]].)\\ That way, any BitComet peer when decoding the //.torrent// file will also learn the eMule hashes for each file and thus will be able to search for those files into the eDonkey/Kad Networks. 
 +  * For torrents ​created with other torrent maker applicationsas soon as the first BitComet peer from a swarm will finish downloading the torrent, it will calculate the eMule hashes for each file of the torrent and make them available ​to other BitComet peers who may be searching for eDonkey links for that torrent, through ​the DHT Network. From that point on, every BitComet peer of the swarm should be able to search the DHT Network and retrieve the ED2K links for that task and then search for those files into the eDonkey/Kad Networks, as well.
  
-Now eMule Xtreme mod is popular and being used as plug-in in BitComet, but what is this Xtreme mod and what's the difference between ​normal ​eMule?\\ +"One advantage of eMule is a large user base, currently averaging 3 to 4 million people, which share some 4 billion files, which makes it excellent for finding rare content"​(([[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​EMule#​eMule_compared_to_other_p2p_networks|Wikipedia - eMule]])). Downloads from the eDonkey Network are usually slower than those in the BitTorrent Network, however for torrents which have no longer any seeds, sometimes eMule might prove to be the useful aid in finishing the download of those rare torrents you found so hard on some site.

-  * You can make sure that a torrent will have eDonkey support if when you make a .torrent file you check the option "//​Calculate ED2K link for each file//"​ in the torrent maker dialog.
