Magnetlinks on B3

Post by duke_h3 » 16 Jan 2012, 04:39

Hi, are there any plans to support magnetlinks ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnet_URI_scheme ) on the B3?

Alternatively, could you just change the default torrent client to Transmission?
That would not only make magnet links work, but also DHT and all sorts of other nice BitTorrent features.

Isn't Transmission GUI only?

Yep, we are looking into changing the entire downloader to something more feature-rich. We will look into this after a few other updates we are working on now.

(Also note that DHT already is there, but has to be manually enabled in the config file).

TPB? Is anybody actually still using that? Isn't it much better to use isohunt or some other site that collects all other sites?
Or an invite/member-only community which has much greater speeds and zero-day releases?

Anybody have a guide on how to install and use Transmission, on B3 now?

I took four different and quite recent torrents from isohunt and but the download just didn't start. So Isohunt seems less reliable than TPB.

And as for member-only communities there is one big problem - you need an invite :)

I used hexagon.cc a lot but that site seems to be down nowadays.

I know several member-only sites that doesn't require an invite, but you do need to apply for a membership in most cases, and you only get one if the site hasn't reached maximum capacity. I recommend you to look around a bit, you might find a great one =)

I like TPB even though there are alternatives. This forum section is completely filled with requests for software for which there are ample alternatives. Why not this one?

Besides, there is a good chance other or even most torrent sites will start using magnetlinks in the future, so the request for magnetlinks to be supported by the B3 is not unreasonable.
