Adding web seeds?

Adding web seeds?

Post by Otus » Sun Aug 09, 2009 8:53 am

Is there a way to add a web seed to a download?

Few torrents have web seeds, but eg. Ubuntu downloads offer both http and bittorrent. When I use uTorrent on Windows, I can paste the direct download URL so downloading works even with no peers. Is there a way to do the same with Transmission?

When we add a new torrent to uT and it is already exists there – uT asks if to add the trackers from it to the existing torrent.
I suggest that at the same time – uT will also add any new web seed(s) that are found in the new torrent to the existing torrent.
If you want to do it nicer – you can add two check-boxes in this question dialog – add trackers/add seeds so we can choose if to add both and any of them.

edit:
if will be nice if we can set uT to also priorities those web seeds
