I'm currently using uTorrent. For the longest time, uTorrent has served me well, but my experience with it has recently grown bad.
Numerous bugs that come and go and come back at random, paired with ads and attempts to push offers when installing or updating, are not exactly what I enjoy seeing on my computer.
However, uTorrent has a couple of features, which I really enjoy.
- RSS downloads: uTorrent uses RSS feeds to check for new content to download...
- Labels: ... it then automatically labels the torrents it downloads from RSS...
- Launch programs: ... and finally performs a command line call to a batch file I've written, as soon as the download has completed.
My use case is that I'm watching podcasts. uTorrent automatically looks for new episodes to download, which are then pushed to my batch file, which converts the episode in a format my phone can play, which is then moved to my cloud folder. That way, I can view new episodes from my phone even before I get home.
The labelling is used to determine whether my batch file should bother converting the file or not.
Which decent and free alternative to uTorrent would support the three features mentioned above?
