Windows / Odd behavior with Qbittorrent and ExpressVPN
« Last post by Dalumberjack on Today at 12:34:33 AM »
First, I have tired doing as much research as possible and trying all fixes and or workarounds to no avail.

I have been using Qbittorrent for quite a while with no issues. I specifically use it with a socks 5 proxy and all has been great in life.

I recently decided to try a vpn and went with expressvpn. After installing the vpn, I immediately started not being able to connect to seeds (with normal qbittorrent settings on the vpn and or also trying to run the proxy with vpn). The weird part is, when a torrent starts, I will connect to a bunch of seeds, then all of a sudden my seed connections will drop to zero and stay that way. My peers will stay connected sometimes and I will continue to upload. This happens no matter what vpn server location I use.

The second weird part is this only happens to certain torrents, such as trying to download  tv episodes. When trying a open free torrent for speed & connection tests from a site such as, I can connect to seeds and peers without an issue with the vpn on.

The last weird part is if I turn off the vpn, the behavior continues. The only way to get my torrents working again is to uninstall the vpn, uninstall qbittorrent, restart, reinstall qbittorrent, and now qbittorrent using just a socks5 proxy works again like it always has.

So I am at a loss as to what is happening with the VPN software and or connections.  I come here seeking any advice hoping someone else has experienced my issue and can lead me in the right direction. Next bet was to try and contact expressvpn support, but thought I might get more knowledge answers here.

Thanks for your time everyone.
Windows / Problem with RAID5
« Last post by Robertomcat on May 20, 2018, 08:34:31 PM »
Hello good afternoon.

Let's see if someone can help me with a problem.

It turns out that I had a RAID5 that spoiled with all the files inside. Later I created the RAID again and downloaded all the files from the backup that had the cloud, and downloaded them as they were organized by folders within the RAID.

Once all downloaded, I started the qbitt again to detect all the files again (I have not changed any route or anything). In total there are about 900 torrent files, which are detected by the tracker's website.

The problem is that there is no way to be able to serve, even if all the files are activated and with the same configuration as before. It's been active all day, and nobody can connect to my files.

What can be caused this?

A greeting!
Windows / Best practice to download movies for plex
« Last post by spamme on May 20, 2018, 07:40:29 PM »

I have automated qbittorent to download movies via RSS feeds directly in a folder, which is a Plex collection. It works fine but sometimes Plex mismatches the movies because the titles are very common and there are already many movies with the same title. In this case the year would be very useful to identify the movie correctly and the file name contains it, but alas it isn't in parentheses as expected form Plex and therefore it is ignored.

I know this would be fine tuning, but what would be the best solution to make Plex match the movies correctly also with the year?
I was checking if it would be possible to fine tune Plex parsing logic, but I didn't find any solution.
I was also thinking to rename the files with a script when the download is completed, but I think it is a bad idea, most probably qbt would download the renamed files again.

What I don't want is to copy and rename the files and therefore double the used space on the HDD.
Is there a solution? Somebody facing the same problem has found a way to solve it?
Windows / Re: torrents not working

I had to roll back Window's April 2018 Update to get qbittorrent to work again.  It worked on my Mac, so it wasn't an ISP/router issue.  Once I rolled back 1803 everything returned to normal.

Linux / does not download
« Last post by cp on May 20, 2018, 09:10:19 AM »
Guys I need help. I  am new to using Fedora. Actually when using Fedora 25, qbittorrent worked like a charm. Now I am fedora 27. I am totally stumped and help is much appreciated. Basically any torrent file link just does not working with qbittorrent. It just says "not working". I have all the necessary plugins installed already. The very same torrent link can be downloaded with transmission or even ktorrent.  I just love qbittorrent for it's search functions. Please help

I've read changing them may temporarily "fix" the problem, but it depends on whether qBT correctly sees your VPN there.
Generic / How come the Web UI’s “download from URLs” does nothing?
« Last post by Jpizzl on May 19, 2018, 11:44:21 PM »
It’s hard to believe no one ever asked this question, but I got zero hits searching for the name of this feature - “Download from URLs.” How does that work? I copied and pasted in magnet and .torrent links, but it just... does nothing. There’s no “go” or “download” button or anything.
Does anyone have any idea how to use that feature? Where is the “go” button?
I’m accessing a Windows PC over a local network using an iPad, btw. Everything else I can think of works fine.

Is there any further plan to develop a dark theme for the application?
I would really appreciate it!  ;D
