Hi Xamarin
I already install Xamarin Android Player, and try to download some of Android Virtualbox files.
I check with URLSnooper that I found out that Xamarin put their files here :

I test connection from Home and Office to s3.amazonaws.com, both are very slow, and almost everytime is "connection time out"
I stay in Singapore, Internet should not be a problem here. Internet is super fast when I browse www.xamarin.com.

But I managed to download manually the files for about 6 hours for all files.
Now the problem is to set up this files to VirtualBox and I think must be visible in Xamarin Android Player ?

So Please help me on either of this step :

Manual way :
provide me a step / link to configure the virtual box, using the ZIP that I have downloaded.

Automatic way :
Or please fix Xamarin Android player to have a MIRROR and PROXY options, and let Xamarin Android Player DOWNLOAD faster and configure it automatically.

I have class on next week. And I'm stuck in this step.
