Since TPB stopped using .torrent files, i haven't been able to download from their site.
When I click the "Get this torrent" all it does is reload the page.

I'm using iphider.org to get on there, since it's blocked in my country.
I don't know if that's an issue.

Has anyone had similar problems or a solution? Thanks

It's probably a problem with whatever browser you're using.

Any suggestions for configuring Chrome on the Macintosh to use magnet files on Pirate Bay?

go to run type regedit
press enter .
then navigate to this path and edit it to which ever client you are using :-

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell\open\command\

after last slash , give complete path of your client sowftware installed at your pc .

and add " "%1" in the end and close it .

foe eg - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\shell\open\command\

"C:\Program Files\BitTorrent\BitTorrent.exe" "%1"

I checked and my regedit was OK and I couldn't "download" using the magnet. I use a proxy to hide my IP and after being desperate I entered tpb directly, clicked on the magnet and violá. No problem at all. It's downloading.
Previoulsy I configured my bitTorrent to use a proxy and I put the web page I normally used. I hope Big Brother doesn't watch me.

sorry for quote
the path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\magnet\ does not exist in my registries (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software does exist) .
what to do then?

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:9b23f6a7071bd80af7d17141bc4becd95250e41e&dn=Bianca.wmv&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.publicbt.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.ccc.de%3A80

this is the real magnet link...


And this is what happens when called from TPB link from a proxy....

Same problem here. If I try to download by pasting the URL, it says that "connection has been closed by Peer while downloading URL". Not sure if it is a port problem, but it worked fine with torrents, so Isuspect there is a problem with magnet links. I too need to access TPB via proxy, but my Bit TOrrent isn't set on a proxy. O_o
I don't know what to do...

If you need to get the magnet link by going through a proxy, you need to decode it. The proxy site I use (hidemyass) just uses a simple base64 encoding. If you copy the magnet link address, and get the encoded part (a long string of random characters usually at the end of the link address), you can use an online base64 decoder like this one:

http://www.opinionat...s/base64decode/

and get the real magnet link. It won't be the whole decoded text, but it will be everything after and including "magnet:?"

I have a blog post about it:

I use the "info hash" that is displayed on TPB.

Info Hash:
138944841B18DF6FC590EFF68DE65BD406E08EEA

I copy "138944841B18DF6FC590EFF68DE65BD406E08EEA" and paste it into this (polisch?) http://centrump2p.com/magnet/ website which turns it into a working magnet link.
