Magnet stuck in retrieving Metadata stage

Post by fckwan »

There are some TV shows that I have the files and the magnet. But when I put the magnet to qBittorrent it stuck at retrieving metadata stage.

If I create a new torrent. The hashcode is different from the magnet.

Is there a way I can bring the TV show back to the bittorrent network.

To be able to download magnets, you need proper port forwarding.
But...
- you can also use this site to grab the .torrent: http://magnet2torrent.com
- and then you can add trackers from here: https://github.com/ngosang/trackerslist/

IF there are any peers left, your content should download after this.

The conversion at the website http://magnet2torrent.com is not successful.
"This magnet link was not found"

Also, I have the files and magnet. Just fail to retrieve metadata using the magnet.

I use magnet links without port forwarding. It's not a problem in my experience, unless the torrent is dead.
