Migrated from Utorrent to QBtorrent on NAS - how to auto download links?

Post by saariko » Wed Dec 18, 2019 9:46 am

So I migrated from Windows/UTorrent, to Asustor NAS/QBtorrent.

How can I link/attach when clicking on a torrent URL/Magnet link in the browser, it will automatically launch/download the file?

You could.......
- Use a tool that auto moves .torrent files from your Downloads folder to a folder on your NAS.
- You could use qBittorrent's "Auto add torrents from path" feature to scan this folder.

That's pretty much it?

A couple of extra possible options.

As of qbtorrent v4.2.0, the webui can be registered as a default handler of magnet links, not torrent files however.

If you're on a version below v4.2.0, you also have the option of using a remote client such as electorrent on your PC. It can connect to your remote instance of qbittorrent that's running on your NAS and handle any magnet links and torrent files for you as if the client was locally installed.
