How to batch edit tracker URL in torrent files?
« on: May 06, 2019, 05:02:27 PM »
I assume the process is the same no matter the platform?

In uTorrent you can select all the torrents, right-click to get Properties, paste in new URL, and you're done.

Can't find similar in qBittorrent.

Opening each file in a text editor is a non-starter.

Help?

This explains the current situation with qBT and batch editing multiple torrent tracker lists:

Thanks, Switeck. What a shame. With over 1000 torrents that need to be edited to work with qBittorrent I (we) are SOL. I'm on Mac and the next version of its OS will not allow 32-bit applications. uTorrent folks show no intention of releasing a 64-bit version for macOS. All other clients are 64-bit but have issues. Sigh.
