Utorrent isn't opening automatically when clicking "get this torrent"


Recommended Posts

Greetings all...

Love Utorrent...best one out there...but unlike my laptop with Windows 7, my Mac isn't automatically "opening" Utorrent when I go to Piratebay and click "Get this torrent" (for movie).

In my Windows 7 computer, when I go to Piratebay and find a movie I want I click "Get This Torrent" and VOILA...!!...Utorrent opens right up, searches for the torrent info, populates the box, and I click "Get Torrent", and off she goes.

I downloaded current version for Mac yesterday, seems to have worked because I can open the program, but when I go to Piratebay and try same scenario shown above, instead of opening Utorrent it tries to open the Mac downloader and just wants to know where to "Save File", etc.

What did I miss?

Thanks in advance.

"Mac downloader"? Do you mean your internet browser (which would be your Mac's Safari, Firefox, Chrome,---) or some other 3rd party download utility.?

You don't have a uTorrent issue --- you just need to finish setting up your Mac. You can set a regular download place in your browser's preferences. You might be able to also set your prefs to open/ launch safe or specified downloads.

Also tell uTorrent to look for torrents and load/ start them.

To polish that sequence with redundancy, you will need to find a torrent file and get info or show inspector to tell your Mac what to open it with ( uTorrent) -- and to select the option to apply that to all.

These are Mac OS manipulations. Spend a bit of time exploring/ practicing/ reading help files/ connect with some Mac addict/ user group.

Note: specific steps would depend on your own OS/ software setup/ brain-style.
