RSS - downloader - cannot DL + DLing non-private torrents ?


Recommended Posts

The following RSS feed has issues downloading from (it does not work)


1. Click-DL does not work. Opening the URL and clicking in the browser - works.

2. there are double listings that looks the same. The only difference is one being a private tracker and one - not. Is it possible somehow to make uTorrent download only the non-private one ?




3. there is valuable details in the "description" part if the listings (size, seeds/peers). Can uTorrent show this in his viewer ? may be as a tool-tip ?

You are confused. That feed gives /details. You need /download to get the torrent files.

Edit: uTorrent isn't an RSS reader. Accepting certain feeds for any ADDITIONALY parsing means the coders either have to make exceptions as there is no "standard" for feeds, or enforce/suggest a "bittorrent feed" spec, which I'm sure they have the power and ability to do so, but from previous requests I don't think they really care to affect that kind of mundane work.

thank you both! sure, the coder has to make some effort to improve things. I'm also sure that it's not that hard to show all the RSS info in some way (tool-tip, more columns etc.) . Unlike you, I think & hope they'll do it in a near future release.
