adding trackers to torrents in utorrent
Posted 24 September 2006 - 10:43 AM
that the SAME EXACT FILE is offered.
So I get the idea in my head - y'know, since it's the same info at all four places, why don't I download from the seeds of all four of those trackers at once to get the file, thus increasing my potential speed?
Problem is, while simply going to the tracker site and running their torrent and beginning the download works fine..
if I right click on the resulting entry in utorrent and select properties and copy the info under "trackers"...
and I do this for each one, and combine them in one torrent and set the thing running...
as the status tab switches from tracker to tracker, I get different errors, like "Unregistered torrent" or "invalid torrent."
Is there a way to do what I'm wanting to do? Seems like such a waste of potential seeders if I truly am limited to downloading from only part of the peers that are out there on the wide, wide 'net.

You can combine public trackers if the files are exactly the same, but it won't work with private trackers.

1. download torrent from every site
2. if there is 24 RAR'd parts and 4 sites, download 6 parts from each tracker
when theyre all finished, force recheck on all of them
it should download fine, but sometimes when you upload later the files mess up and say they cant find certain file parts (even when the extracted files are fine), you just force reheck and it will fix it (for a while) or if you want to be totally safe you can copy the files into separate folders but thats really space comsuming.
i typed this fast, so if you need an clarification just ask

This is a good thing. If it could be changed, then I could substitute my virus-laden pong.exe file into my download directory and have bittorrent spread my virus for me.
When you add a tracker url, the torrent hash no longer matches, so the client is going to barf.
Your best option is simply to enable DHT. It will find all the other swarm members who are using DHT, regardless of tracker.

ÂµTorrent doesn't support the UDP tracker options because they say it was done badly. WIth the quality of ÂµTorrent I'll trust their programing judgement.
