Prefer Not To Give Up Magnet Priority To Maelstrom

Recommended Posts

I would prefer to not give up magnet opening status to Maelstrom.  Magnet's are nice to leave for your default torrent client.  Though there are work arounds I could do, I wonder if there is a better way to implement this.  

 

BTW:  I don't feel worthy for developer discussion, but I expect there needs to be more messages before there becomes an "unworthy area" :-D

A user could change the default association for magnet links on their computer. See screenshot:

However, you're right in that this is more like general feedback than developer discussion. Feedback is best directed to this form:

I think I'll make a stickied thread for this sub-forum so that browser-help.bittorrent.com is referenced from here.

 

Thanks!

I wasn't needing help, it was more of a suggestion.  No user discussion?

 

If magnet links are going to be making Maelstrom load up a web page or do whatever, then this will make it so torrent clients no longer open up via the magnet link.   A user could change this but this would leave a big part of maelstrom not having the same ability to open up many links.   I was just wondering if there was a better way to do this?   A different kind of link maybe that pertains to torrent browsing?  

 

I'm thinking maelstrom shouldn't hijack the magnet link process.
