MAC / Re: Cannot auto use qbittorrent for .torrent files
« on: October 10, 2019, 06:41:08 PM »
In Finder, pick any .torrent file. Right-Click it (or hit control-click). Choose 'Get Info'. Find the 'Open with' option and choose qBittorrent. Next find the 'Change All' option and click it. wait until done. Time will depend on how many .torrent files you have.

Perhaps there is no one wanting that torrent? Therefore no traffic.

To get them to always open in qB go to one .torrent file and Get Info (command I). Choose qB as you did on the other but also then look down a little ways and click the 'Change All...' button and then in the following dialog window click 'Continue'.

I simply loaded all my new torrents, one tracker at a time, by destination,into qB. All my torrents go to one of two places. So I selected all the torrent files for X1 tracker that would go to Y1 location and loaded them up. When I got the dialog window to actually load, asking, where, etc., I made sure of the location then hit the OK button and held it until all of them loaded. It takes a good while if there are many. Repeat for X2 to Y1, X3 to Y1, etc. Then switch torrents from X1 to Y2 and repeat. It took less than 4 hours to have 2000+ up and seeding. Of course time depends on size of files to be re-hashed. In my case well over 90% of the 2000+ are lossless audio. Huge Blu-ray files will of course take longer. But the loading of the .torrent files themselves takes the same amount of time. Load them, click/hold OK button, walk away, return at times to check progress.

Surely there are other procedures such as above, but this was mindless and clean. You do not maintain stats within the client but I never obsess over those as trackers keep the important stats and that is what matters.

I am curious. Still an issue?

Suggestions / Make donation link more prominent.

I was expecting a more prominent link, like a big ol' button.

Thanks for the work! I'm a refugee from uTorrent/Mac (no 64 bit version - their pathetic, stoopid new web app notwithstanding).

One issue I had which had me going all-in with Transmission (shudder). YMMV but be wary of using Tags. Merely having the sidebar item "Tags" ticked slowed qB to a crawl.

Tip: I f you as did I and simply choose all your torrents and open them in qB, when you get to the dialog window asking where you want to DL, instead of repeatedly clicking "OK" just hold the enter key down until all are loaded.

I used this tool by rumanzo:,5625.msg27222.html


BTW, we traded posts in the migration thread, though talked about smooth running with a great number of torrents. I'm happy to say I now have qBittorrent purring with 2136 torrents, thanks to your encouragement.

Don't be surprised if I come back asking for help/guidance with the tool!

It's been requested a few times...

Multi-tracker EDITING nonexistent!
Add way to mass update announce url
change properties of multiple torrents
Edit tracker for selected torrents and other features request
Is there a way to Edit all trackers simultaneously ?? Thanks..
Add tracker to multiple torrents
Feature: Tracker manager: bulk add/remove/edit outdated tracker/s of all torrents
Batch-edit tracker URL on multiple torrents in the same time
[Wishlist] Tracker List sorting
[Wishlist] Default Tracker List
[Wishlist] Add the ability to edit trackers in torrent add dialog

...but the only way to speed up the process would be to join qBitTorrent development and make the code to do that, because it seems the very few remaining qBitTorrent devs are still busy trying to fix show-stopping crashes that happen to a few people.

 ;D :) ;)

 :-X.  Thanks for the reply.

MAC / batch editing torrent file
« on: September 13, 2019, 08:41:33 PM »
One tracker I use has changed its announce address several times. For some old torrents from there the address has changed something like 3 times! In uTorrent I can simply select all torrents needing to be edited and right-click to edit properties, pasting in the new address. Unfortunately this does not edit the file itself. So when I add those files to qBittorrent they error out. I see no way to do what is possible in uTorrent.

Am I missing something? I'm talking several hundreds of torrents. A workaround is re-downloading the .torrent files but that would be a major PITA.

Anything to be done otherwise?

Untick Tags and Trackers in the GUI sidebar.

It maybe preliminary but I have just discovered that if I untick either 'Categories' or 'Trackers' all is then good.

Going to really play with it tomorrow.

Older versions have not been great. never has been. What's really maddening is it's the same on both computers. Different OSs going back to I can't remember! But you've given a glimmer of hope.

It's just slow or no response. Torrents are loaded and running. That's fine. But anything else I want to do is slow. So slow I might as well go for burgers while the app does what I've just invoked (e.g. sort a column, change the view to a particular tracker, etc).

While nowhere near as bad as Deluge (useless with more than a few hundred, even the new v2), my 2100+ slow qBittorrent down. When I had decided to give up on uTorrent in anticipation of it's obsolescence I tried several clients. Only Transmission could keep up with uTorrent. qBittorrent came close but there were just too many times it was slow to respond. Tried on a 2.9 GHz i7/16 GB RAM and a 2.5 GHz i5/16 GB RAM.

Even with the uTorrent folks coming through I would just as soon not use it. Guess I might try qBittorrent again. Never did like Transmission.
