You can't preview incomplete files... and when its done, just quick look it from the finder.

I think jah means look into the files describes in the .torrent file.

i have mixed feelings about this, seems like it would be to much work

comment:3 Changed 14 years ago by jah

this is not about incomplete files, it is about being able to quicklook the .torrent file. possible info could include the files which will be downloaded and other stats such as the tracker.

the information on how to do it is on ADC.

I admit it is not a high priority (which is why i set it to low), however it would be good for Mac OS X to recognize torrent files in quicklook, and perhaps this is an opportunity for T to provide that.

I don't see this happening. The effort is better spent elsewhere.

someone was actually working on the plugin (so you wouldn't actually have to do it) however they needed #722 to be fixed before they could continue any further.

Hiya, I've actually just written a Quick Look generator plugin for general .torrent metainfo file inspection. It's attached here in this post and future versions will be posted on http://technocrank.com.

Enjoy!
