BitTorrent Broadcatch XML Specification


expert01

Recommended Posts

I've been working on a BitTorrent specific XML specification, to give programs, users, and websites better access to content (a la Web 3.0). It aims to provide more information for each torrent (allowing users to more accurately download subscribed content), as well as a standard for all trackers and programs to use (for easier access).

It's current discussion topic is located at http://filesoup.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=153948

I'd post all the info from that post here, but uTorrent doesn't have codebox tags, so I'll post a sample Broadcatch XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Broadcatch
version="1.0"
xmlns="http://abandonbeta.com/Broadcatch/broadcatch.xsd"
xmlns:xsi="http://abandonbeta.com/Broadcatch/broadcatch.xsd"
xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://abandonbeta.com/Broadcatch/broadcatch.xsd">
