  1. Hey, I shifted to BitTorrent some days back and I have been having download speed issues. On uTorrent, I used to have a minimum speed of up to 1Mb/s; moving on to BitTorrent, I haven't been able to go past 320Kb/s even after optimising the client

  4. Hey, almost every bittorrent tracker ist blocked by my ISP. I can only visit them when using proxy sites like and even those proxy sites get blocked latly. Any idea on how to access them? Is it possible to use the tor browser to access them? Never used it but i probl. should give it a try?
  5. i tried to find some kind of fix for this, but all i could find was old troubleshooting threads kept talking about a "hidden labels" option, which i dont have i dont believe. it says i have 1 torrent downloading, but i cant see it anywhere. here's a screenshot. edit: sorry, this posted twice for some reason, but im not exactly sure how to delete it.
  6. I'd like to have the whole BT Bleep development on Linux. As soon as possible please compile an Arch Linux package and throw it into the Arch testing-repos, this will increase the development- and bugfix- speed enormously. Make the first stable alpha opensource and throw the sourcecode on Github, most of the other Linux users will know how to compile a package for their distro And please, the whole project sounds awesome and could even compete with whatsapp. So I'd like to see an Android App which comes with all the features Whatsapp has.
  7. Hello guys, I am trying to fix my download speeds. Whenever I run the BitTorrent Setup Guide to test my Bandwidth and Network, Bandwidth get's an error. I already found what is causing the problem, but I can't fix it. What I've done: 1. Port TCP/UDP forward in my router 2. Added the TCP/UDP ports to my firewall 3. Added BitTorrent to my firewall applications with allowed all option 4. Added BitTorrent to my allowed antivirus applications 5. Disabled randomize port each start in BitTorrent preference 6. Port used for incoming connection: the same as I put in my firewall and router 7. Enable UPnP port mapping 8. Enable NAT-PMP mapping 9. Add windows firewall exception 10. Windows firewall is being commanded by AVG, nothing special found in windows firewall. BitTorrent is added to windows firewall. 11. In Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level, I've enabled 'Access data sources across domains'. 12. Right bottom corner of BitTorrent I've disabled DHT / also tested with DHT enabled Whenever AVG security 2015 is fully enabled: Results: PORT is open in BitTorrent. So Network is OK. Green mark in BitTorrent Setup Guide. Results: Bandwidth has a red mark with error 10054. Whenever I disable my AVG firewall: Results: PORT is open in BitTorrent. So Network is OK. Green mark in BitTorrent Setup Guide. Results: Bandwidth has a red mark with error 10054. Whenever I disable AVG protection, but enable AVG firewall: Results: PORT is open in BitTorrent. So Network is OK. Green mark in BitTorrent Setup Guide. Results: Bandwidth has a GREEN mark, Upload 1MB/s, download 12MB/s. So the problem is not my firewall, but the AVG protection. How can I fix this? UPDATE: I've restarted my PC, and with the settings described above, my download speeds are higher. The bandwidth test is still red, but I read that's not important right? Anyways, download is fast again after pc restart. Thanks
  8. Hello, I have 80 megabits speed but when downloading torrent, old/new simply i do not get the speed near to my expectation. Usually I receive 50-70 kB/s for all the torrent files. When download start, it's gradually increases but with in few seconds it stalls. I tried disabling antivirus and recently I reinstalled my Windows(8.1) but no use. I have tried VPN to check if really it's blocked/limited by my ISP but VPN doesn't allow torrent download at all. There is something fishy with my ISP, I called them and they totally denied limiting my access to torrents. Let me know what could be done! Best Regards, M.Aqib
  9. Ive been using Bittorrent for awhile without issue but this previous week my DL speed has shot down to nearly nonexistent. my normal DL speed is around 5 MB/S. i currently am trying to download a few torrents each with over 100 seeders and less than 20 seeders total but my speeds are sitting steady at 20 KB/S. my link Please help as i have no idea what changed to make my DL speeds plummet
  10. Yeah okay so I try installing this, and then my antivirus tells me that this bloody OpenCandy garbage is built in. Any way to get it so it doesn't have that garbage in it?
  11. If a proxy specified under Preferences-->Connection is used (let's say it's SOCKS 5), will BitTorrent stop uploading/downloading if the connection with a proxy server suddenly breaks down? Or will it switch to using "home" IP? If it stops uploading/downloading, is it so precise that no data actually leaves the computer under "home" IP or will it deanonymize the user?
  12. Hello, I have recently switched ISP from Talk Talk to Plusnet and I've had an issue since. As soon as I start the program the download speed goes up to 1.8MB/s then drops after 30 seconds to ~200-300kb/s. The only way for the speeds to return to normal is if I manually change ports within the program the speed shoots back up then drops again after about 30 seconds. I've forwarded the ports in my router and allowed the program and ports to my firewall so I'm at a loss as to why I'm having to manually change ports every 30 seconds when the speed is obviously there, I've spoken to my ISP and they told me they do not throttle anymore so that is not the issue. Hopefully you guys have some helpful tips and answers I could try, thanks in advance.
  13. Why are my upload speeds often not even exceeding the 10 KB/s? I want to share torrent files I've downloaded, but it's so slow. Any solutions?
  14. I'm running Bittorrent 7.9.2 on Windows 7 64, and ever since I tried to disable the annoying ads (particularly the left hand one that takes up about 1/4 of the window), I have not been able to reliably download anything. After spending a few hours fiddling with settings, I can usually get downloads going again - temporarily. With no repeatable pattern found as yet. I'm using a random port #, that is port-forwarded through my Linux firewall. Network tests are always good (unless I turn off both uPNP and NAT-PMP). Running Kaspersky Internet Security 2014, and regularly pause protection or exit it to try and get downloads working again, no luck. I have also tried resetting Winsock, last time I tried downloads resumed the second time I rebooted after executing the command, so it may not have been related. I was going to include details from the Info tab of a test torrent, but it's all 0's except the hash, added date, directory, etc. The trackers tab is also un-enlightening, with that specific torrent showing a working http tracker with plenty of seeds/peers. Others vary, with some hostnames not found (probably shut down), or connections timed out. But they do all appear to have at least one working tracker, with seeds/peers located - but not one single successful connection (staying up), incoming or outgoing. Traffic shows between 0.5-10 KB/s of overhead, no data traffic. I just found the statistics window, which shows 1509 incoming connections since start, 0 outgoing, 1411 handshake, 651 connections, 8 half-open (0 queued). Looks like the client is refusing to accept or make connections. The ONLY thing working properly at the moment, is the ads. Suspecting that disabling the ads was coded to cripple downloads and make people pay for Pro, I have reset all Advanced options to default (except the gui.show_notorrents_node one, which seems to reset itself to false after I reset it to the default of true), without success. Occasionally while starting up the client I will see an Active torrent (usually a seed), but that will go away within a few minutes. Some of the torrents I currently have at 0 KBps and 0 peers connected, are listed as having over 1000 peers, so it is definitely not a lack of peers to download from. I can add a torrent to qBittorrent and it works perfectly (including on the same port #, if I shutdown Bittorrent first), but lacks one or two features I prefer about Bittorrent. Any assistance would be appreciated. I would really rather not have to find another torrent client.
  15. We just standardized our peer ID in Popcorn Time (quite a large amount of users use Popcorn Time, our estimates put it at around 5 million to 10 million people) so we were wondering how we got a "friendly" name put into uTorrent/BitTorrent clients for the Peer ID we use in Popcorn Time. Regards, XeonCore
  16. At the beginning bittorrent client downloads a large file without a problem, but as soon as the cache gets filed up, the download speed gets capped to 9.7-10kbps. Why isn't it fixed yet? Why isn't cache getting auto-released/flushed/send to the disc? Also, file is being downloaded into an external flash drive, because as far as I know, frequent write/read lessens SSD's lifespan. In other words, torrenting in SSD = bad, use external disc for torrenting, okay? A little bit offtopic, but how do I access advanced preferences? The latest version has small settings.
  17. The bandwidth control takes effect only after the BitTorrent restarts. When I put the download limit, the application only limits the speed of the download after I restart the app. In previous versions it worked perfectly without the need to restart BitTorrent. Another thing I miss is the ability to start and pause the download direct from the toolbar. In anteriorer versions existed the option to pause and restart the download direct from the toolbar, now there is only the option to start (or continue the download). To pause the download of a file need to click right on top of it and then put the download to pause. This is not so practical. Sorry for my bad English.
  18. Hello, good afternoon. I have been using bittorrent for some time now but just recently i realised that the downloads are not working AT ALL on my android. At first i thought it had something to do with my internet being slow but when i got my internet fixed it continued to not work. All it says when i try to download anything is "Calculating - 0B" can someone please help me out?

  20. I have Bittorrent 7.4.2, and Mac OS X. So dl speed gets throttled to 10kb/sec by bittorrent client itself. Only restarting the app (manually closing and reopening it restores the speed). Settings are fine & other options, so don't make stupid assumptions pls. Also, before you ignorantly say it's because of my ISP, I can say right off that you're going to be wrong. It's not. I tested other torrent-clients, such as utorrent and qbittorrent - and everything works fine there. The only reason I want this to work in bittorrent is because bittorrent unlike the aforementioned torrent-clients supports the "peer to peer ONLY via proxy", which is crucial to me. Utorrent has pretty much the same interface, but it ignores the proxy settings despite the checked option "use proxy for peer to peer connections", and keeps using my direct IP. So what's wrong? Bittorrent used to work fine just a few days ago. Also, once the speed is throttled, even if I turn off proxy at settings and try to download through my direct IP, dl speed is still throttled. I mean, bittorrent applies settings without the need to be restarted, right?
  21. Hello everyone, I'm new and I have a big problem with Bittorrent Bundle. I uploaded my first Bundle and I added the tag, but if I try my bundle through the tags that I added is not online .. I put different tags and I've searched but all is not no bundle in my research .. The bundle is released and is online but does not appear in searches .. Now I wonder how do they find the torrent if it does not appear in searches tags? How to fix?
  22. So i just installed bittorrent, (I have used it before on this computer and this connection) and was going to download a tv show. it starts downloading, and it won't raise above 10 kB/s. my internet connection is Very good, so that shouldn't be a problem, I'm not running a proxy, the firewall isn't blocking it, my ip isn't blocking the connection, (checked with glasnost) and bittorrent says the connection is working as it should. I have tried multiple different torrents, all with over 3000 seeds, and the same thing happens for all of them. What can i do to fix it? Speedtest link:
  23. hi, i am using bittorrent since 2 years by now. but i have noticed that although bittorrent is connected to those peers and seeders that have an "s" in their flags like DS, Ds ihxep, dsp etc as shown in the peers tab in bittorrent , but it does not download from them a thing. what is meaning of the flags shown against such peers , and how to download from them , as sometime they are the only peer or seeder available can anyone help?
  24. Hi there, Lately, while BitTorrent is running in the background (downloading), the audio of my videos is full with artifacts--the sound has static-like disturbances. I've tried different video players like VLC, MPC and Windows Media Player. All three have exhibited similar problems in audio, and VLC and MPC have shown occasional video "stuttering" as well. This problem stops completely if BitTorrent is stopped end exited. My machine is relatively old but no audio problems whatsoever if BitTorrent is not running and I overload with other heavy-duty software or play HD 1080 movies. Specs: PC: Pentium 4 CPU 3.2GHz L2 Cache: 2,048 KB Memory: 3GB. (shows 50-70% usage when BitTorrent+Chrome+video are running together) Motherboard: MSI, MS-7176 (with built-in soundcard) Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series. Mode: 1920x1080, 32bit color depth. Sys: Win7 Ultimate 32 bit (v.6.1.7601) sp1. Frshly installed on February 2014 K-Lite codecs Full was installed today, April 19. 2014--but no change. BitTorrent: v.7.8.2 (Build 30489) 32 bit. Thank you!
  25. I would like to see an option where the purchase of BitTorrent Plus means that you continue to get support. I have searched the forums for my errors and all I've come across are messages saying "Pro is not supported in the Forums." When I goto it takes me to a useless web site. Here are my errors: player.btinstall failed to install (0x800b010c) bitdefender.btinstall failed to install (0x800b010c) transcode.btinstall failed to install (0x800b010c) I'm running 64bit Windows 8 and I've ran the install as Administrator. I assume from the errors that I am actually not receiving any of the pro features that I paid for. I tried both the bundle and the free download/add the license methods. It would be nice to see some support of the product as a feature. I paid good money for it. Cheers, Gordon
