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).

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?

Generic / 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.


MAC / 2000+ torrents ... An issue?
« on: February 21, 2019, 05:43:26 PM »
I am in the process of switching from uTorrent. I loaded some trackers and all was running smoothly. But my main tracker has almost 1400 torrents. They've loaded. And now qBittorrent has begun looking very odd. That is, the main window is blank if I choose a view other than the first or second view when I first begin qB. For example. on the latest startup of qB I chose Status>All and yes they were all showing. I then chose a Category and those showed. But next choosing another category, returning to All, etc. just shows a blank window.

Any ideas? I never got far with Deluge because it is known to get FUBAR with a lot of torrents. In my case it couldn't cut it after even a few hundred. Transmission is handling all 2000+ but I want a GUI that is more amenable.

New to qBittorrent, refugee from close to 8 years with uTorrent and several more before that with Azureus/Vuze.

Using my laptop on my home wireless network I have my downloads go to a networked drive that is in fact an external connected to a desktop elsewhere in the house, on the home network. No big deal; works fine. Usually once torrents are completed I will eventually transfer the torrent files to the desktop then continue permanent seeding from there.

My issue: There are times that the laptop sleeps, thus severing the networked drives' connections. When the laptop awakes and qBittorent figures out the connection to the networked drive has not yet been made, it errors out. So far that's not unusual; same thing happens with uTorrent. Trouble is, once the drive is mounted and I then select torrent(s) and "Force resume" qB starts downloading! If I instead do a rehash, it does that fine but still starts downloading once I choose to resume. In the same situation uTorrent just starts seeding.

Sure do hope I'm doing something stupid and so is easily fixable. If this is qB's expected behavior does anyone have a workaround?
