I'm currently using rtorrent with the rutorrent front-end. The nice things about it are that it's insanely fast, uses very little resources on the system it runs on, and with the web user interface, is as good as a local client. However, rtorrent on its own can be a little hard to use: and it lacks RSS feed support. I use rutorrent as a front end, with an ...

While this is not strictly answering your question, regarding an alternative to μTorrent, you might want to consider running μTorrent on a seperate Linux box. I fully agree with you that over the years μTorrent has become bloated and full of ads and just does not seem to run as well as it used to. The Linux version however, has seemed to retain ...

Deluge has a built in CLI, GUI and web-interface. Transmission has also a built in CLI and GUI. since in MLDonkey the core and GUIs are completely separated, all features will work via CLI. if you just want a CLI have a look at rTorrent although with ruTorrent there is also a third-party web-interface. if you want a similar CLI to wget maybe have a look at ...

I have had luck with Ragnar which is a CLI wrapper for the C++ library libtorrent. I would prefer to use a fully managed solution but this is the only library which I could get working.

Transmission is a great BitTorrent client that I use on Mac OS X, as well as Linux. You can download it here.

I think all clients do this but in a different manner : they prioritize by download speed. No need to lookup each and every IP and see if it's geographically close to you, if the speed low. They could also have settings that prevent their client from uploading with more than x KBps. utorrent : https://superuser.com/questions/431417/can-utorrent-auto-re-...

You can setup an IPv6 capable frontend webserver (e.g. Nginx or Apache) to proxy requests to a torrent client listening locally.

You can use transmission plus Transmission Remote GUI by copy in clipboard the content of file and start Transmission Remote GUI. The only disadvantage is you need to click OK/confirm for any of the downloads.

The least private is to upload to YouTube and set the video private. then you can share the link. But if anyone guesses the link they will be able to see the video! The easies but not very private is to share via Google Drive or Dropbox etc.. That way only your Provider (google or Dropbox etc.) can see the video If your only concern is security and not ...

https://qbittorrent.org does exactly what I want. Plus, it is one of the most pouplar torrent clients and "qBittorrent runs and provides the same features on all major platforms (Linux, macOS, Windows, OS/2, FreeBSD)".

You can do this in utorrent itself: press Shift+P and then select Scheduler, then click enable scheduling. After that you can play with boxes to set when it should stop and when it should start. That's all!

BitTornado is pure Python library written by John Hoffman - I am sure that you could make use of it and a few lines of python plus a cron task to kick it off. Unfortunately I cannot get to the documentation on it to tell you how as it is blocked from my current location.

Please note, first of all, that this practice is not encouraged, per Bittorrent etiquette. More here: link. However, qBittorrent allows, once you started a torrent download, to right-click on it and request both sequential order download, as well as to download the first and last piece first. Hope I understood what your requirements are.

Found it! Peerflix. Can download a torrent file or a magnet link. Provides a http link which can be used to play it using any player that can play HTTP links, including hardware players. Tested it a little - playing and seeking works well. Disadvantage - it uses Node.JS, so it can be problematic to run it on a NAS with 256 RAM (Task manager under windows ...

What you'll need to do is read through the torrent file and compare all the hashes with a hash table of files you have on your local system. Then, rebuild a local directory tree that is identical to what is in the torrent file. Afterwards, when you access the torrent with a manager, it will see the existing files and on retrieve non-existing ones.

I like http://showrss.info/ , a free subscription service where you create a custom RSS feed for whatever you wish, setting parameters on each as needed. (720p only, prefer REPACK/PROPER, etc.) Once you've got your custom RSS feed, you can plug it into whatever client you wish using their supported method. (I use Azureus plus the RSS Feed Scanner plugin. ...

Transmission (a bitorrent client) has a command line option (transmission-cli), and EZTV from the looks of it has an RSS feed. You could write a brief BASH script to add those containing the name of the show you'd like to download. I'm not sure how well versed you are in shell scripts, etc. If you're not too well-versed, add a comment and I can always knock ...
