Windows / Re: Torrents which download pause randomly
« Last post by Switeck on September 05, 2018, 10:52:40 PM »
uTorrent may tolerate longer timeouts to the NAS without disconnecting than qBitTorrent due to slightly better internal cache handling and better recovery logic.
qBT should see an improvement on that going from v4.0.x to v4.1.3 (or later)...because libtorrent (which qBT uses) is seeing work on the subject.

Speeds at which you're downloading/uploading plus number of active peers+seeds may have a huge effect on how stable the NAS is.
100's of peers wanting different parts of many files all stored on the NAS trying to access that at once may present a problem even if excess network speeds are available between your NAS and computer.
Spinning platter HDDs literally cannot keep up with lots of simultaneous random file accesses.

A bigger cache in qBT can help slightly, but risks crashes especially for qBT 32bit versions due to the 2 GB virtual memory limitations.
So I don't suggest setting the cache larger than 1000 MB on qBT 32bit even if you have 4 GB or more ram.
 I'm using VPNetMon, it shuts off any app when VPN goes down and restart apps when VPN is back.

What command line option did you use for shutting down qbittorrent on Windows ?
Windows / Pause/Resume just deleted all non-active torrents
« Last post by gddeluca on September 05, 2018, 10:04:51 PM »
I just watched the majority of my torrents disappear.  I selected PAUSE from the taskbar icon (I had another download I wanted to 'hurry along') and when I went back and selected RESUME - - all the torrents that were not actually active when I hit Pause were deleted!

Quick frankly - WTF !

I have had multiple torrents mysteriously disappear in the past, and never figured out why, but this time I actually had QBittorrent open at the time and could quite literally watch them get deleted.

This seems to be a quite serious bug.

Linux / Moving torrents from windows to linux
« Last post by pop5oviy on September 05, 2018, 09:54:21 PM »
I have qBittorrent both on my windows and linux which is a dual boot currently. I want to move all of the torrents to Linux. What I already did:
I came across this 2 topics

The first one doesn't seem to work for people in the thread, I did not tried it, since I don't want to download C# on linux.
It's a little bit trickier for me than for the person from second thread. I did copied the BT_BACKUP from my windows to ~.local/share/data/qBittorrent/BT_backup/
But it obviously search for the files in windows like directories. The problem is that I need to globally change the path on all of the torrents, so for example if it was for D:\programs I need to change it to /media/username/programs/
Any idea on how to do it?
Windows / Cross seeding
« Last post by bleten on September 05, 2018, 08:47:41 PM »
I have recently installed v4.1.2, and have some trouble cross seeding the same torrent between different trackers. When trying to add a torrent from another tracker I get the message "Torrent X is already in the transfer list. Trackers haven't been merged because it is a private torrent." If I then simply delete the existing torrent, I can usually add both torrents for recheck, without QBittorrent showing any error messages. Cross seeding like this was never a problem in uTorrent, as far as I know. Is there a way to get this working?

Thanks for the info, Switeck. I'm also interested in the "how can I prevent this behavior" part as I'm also affected.

I'm downloading to a NAS, which worked fine in uTorrent. I prefer qBitTorrent, but the "not downloading" part of qBitTorrent (which I unfortunatelly experience a lot) ist not very nice.
Windows / "Force Resume" via WebAPI
« Last post by annomatik on September 05, 2018, 03:01:57 PM »
Hi! I'd like to start a torrent in force resume via the WebAPI. I do a...

<url>/command/resume with data hash=$hash --> works
<url>/command/setForceStart with data = hashes=$hash?value=true --> does nothing

Please help. Thanks!
Windows / Email notification not working
« Last post by Ethereal on September 05, 2018, 12:44:40 PM »

Being unable to set up properly notifications by email when download finishes, though I have filled in all fields as consider accurate and verified by standard email client that the server sends mail with these settings.
The server accepts secured connections, so I enter the server as and set authentication which are my mailbox credentials, the from is as non-existing sender [email protected].
Having all this filled in no mail is arriving. Is there availability of diagnostics what exactly is sent to mailserver and what's the response. It would obviously help to determine what's going on.
Windows - QA Department / Re: [official]qBittorrent 4.1.2 installer - Built with MSVC 2017

Well, Everyone here is quite advanced with qB and generally. I've been using qB for a while now. I learned early on to 'not' upgrade. I just had too much trouble, for whatever reason (which others could have guessed perhaps) and found that if the program was working, Why did I need the grief?

I just got a new laptop and I'm having a harder time than I've ever had with qB. I watched a dozen YouTube vids, most which were unwatchable. Nothing here clues me in. One YouTube vid I watched showed how to simply click on search via view and it would automatically download python, which I'm missing. It worked great for him. I just got a msg saying that my python version is unknown. But if I don't have it, Isn't that a meaningless statement? At this point, I'm going to either get an answer from someone here that I can understand or just try downloading another qB because I'm certainly never going to use utorrent again.

Sorry to be whiney. Thanks in advance.
