it seems that going to "tools" -> "options"  -> "bittorrent" -> uncheck "torrent queueing" solves the problem, at leat for me

Generic / Re: What are all the peers for?
« Last post by Switeck on December 13, 2018, 08:19:11 PM »
It may be a bug of sorts, but probably not where you'd expect!

Someone on that torrent may be trying to download it and have a constantly resetting+changing ip address, so the torrent tracker/s and Peer EXchange (PEX for short) report a huge peer count because of all the ip addresses seen over the last 10+ days. Some VPNs and proxy connection internet exit points may change too.

Or it could be a bunch of fake peers, put up by "poisoners" or monitoring groups. (Google if you want to know more...)

All it takes is 1 peer, seed, or tracker incorrectly reporting every ip ever seen on the torrent over the last year or longer (instead of forgetting "old" inactive ips after awhile) to have this happen.

Generic / What are all the peers for?
« Last post by bibbly on December 13, 2018, 03:55:29 PM »
This is a general "what's going on" kind of question.

I'm seeding a number of tv programs that are old and/or have little interest. For all of them there are <= 10 seeds.
The odd thing is the peer counts. Many have the very low numbers that you'd expect (<= 6), but about one third of them have over 100 peers! And only about 10% have between 6 and 100 peers.

In one case, there's a 4 season show from the middle of last century. Three of the seasons have 2-4 peers, and the remaining season has about 150 peers! There's nothing special about that season; and as I've been seeding it for a long time I can safely say from my ratio that it's actually the *least* downloaded of the seasons.

So what's going on? There's no way there are actually hundreds of people trying to download these things. What are these peers actually doing there? Is it a bug?

Generic / Add multiple Downloads via Browser
« Last post by servitox on December 12, 2018, 09:22:04 PM »
Hi,

i would like to create a website where users can add multiple downloads to a "basket" and initiate the download at the end.

Is there a way to do that ?

I thought about chaining magnet-links, combining multiple .torrent-files into one or linking to a custom RSS-Feed, but it seems that isn't possible.
 

Best regards

Ok, but what's the purpose of the tags?

Do they act like labels?

I do not use tags.  I use Categories so that I can store different type downloads in different folders.  AudioBooks in one folder eBooks in a differ folder.

Reinstalling won't even require rechecking a single torrent, because you can back up the resume lists separate from qBT's main settings configuration file.

Windows / Re: Two torrents just going to error
« Last post by Switeck on December 12, 2018, 12:44:49 AM »
They go to error ...where did you see the error messages? Just the main window?
I get torrents going to error in qBT because/when I set qBT's cache too large.
Or file/folder permissions conflicts.
Or locked files. (in use by other apps...)
Or when I inadvertently delete the whole folder the files were in. :P

DHT alone is very unreliable -- it needs PEX with it typically combined with 10+ peers/seeds to stay "knit together" into a coherent torrent swarm.
Otherwise the peers and seeds may not find each other at all -- gotta love those dead tracker torrents that stay stuck at 0% complete. :(

The one with a "ton of trackers" has a bunch of trackers that aren't working period. Some of which have been dead for years. There's less than 10 working trackers in the pic, and of those probably 3-5 are duplicates of each other! Not going to get a lot of peers/seeds from them if 2P/2S is for the "busy" one.
uTorrent may get lucky connecting (through DHT nodes) to the 1 peer/seed that "sees" (via DHT and PEX) all the other working peers+seeds while qBT only gets the peers+seeds reported by trackers.

qBitTorrent may be crashing your networking software/hardware -- a bad firewall, router, or modem?

qBT being unclose-able in Task Manager I've read about at qBT's github issues forum, but I didn't see a solution -- devs will probably have to figure out where the bug to that is and fix it.

Have you tried completely uninstalling qBT and removing all its settings? (but keeping your torrents!)
...Then reinstalling either a slightly older version of qBT or the latest version again.
Settings sometimes get messed up over time, especially if the computer lost power when qBT was running.

TBH I haven't... lack of time... and lazyness of rechecking 400+ Torrents... LOL
I'll wait an update hoping something will be fixed... and maybe i'll stop updating so often... :D
If nothing changes... I'll give a downgrade a try ;)
