#3872 new Enhancement

Ability to add or remove webseed sources to or from a torrent

Description

Some huge downloads are available as torrents and direct web links. For example, Open Office can be downloaded in two ways:
http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/ (torrent)
http://www.openoffice.org/ (direct link)

Same for Ubuntu:
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download (direct link)
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/alternative-download#bt (torrent)

It would be really nice, if the page name "peers" will have a button named "add source".

Note that it is not a kind of web seeding, since the server known nothing about the torrent, but can send us some fragments of the file(s) being downloaded.

Shareaza seems to have this feature implemented.

Actually, it is web seeding in GetRight way with ability to add a source.

I hoped this is planed yet for longer time. Please, please implement this feature as fast as you can. I miss this a lot. Thanks.

  • Milestone changed from None Set to Sometime

This isn't going to make it in time for 2.20, but I agree it should be added at some point.

#4139 asks for this in the "create torrent" window.

comment:7 Changed 10 years ago by theonlytruth

@livings124 This is a different idea. Here we want to add the seeds to a running torrent download if for example it is to slow. The other one wanted to add webseeds when he creates a torrent.

#4678 is a duplicate of this.
