    1. Favorites: This list displays all single servers, countries, streaming and torrent connections you previously marked as favorites.
    2. All servers: Displays all countries available and, if extended, all single servers available for the resp. extended country entry.
    3. For torrenting: If you want to download Torrents or other files you most often need a compatible server, since not all countries, for example, allow P2P technologies such as Torrents. Also, you might want the best performance available.
    4. For streaming: In case you want to stream content from a certain country (e. g. to watch home TV when on a trip), you need a server capable of delivering high-resolution content as well as being equipped to work with the wanted streaming platform.
