  [RFE] Allow tracker updates to torrent multiple times from magnet: & .torrent sources
Posted by: detelosk - Yesterday, 10:07 AM - Forum: Community Open Support - No Replies


When a magnet: link is used to try and add an existing torrent created from a .torrent file a dialog pops up allowing one to update the tracker list using the sources embedded in the magnet: link (even if the trackers are the same, which is somewhat misleading but not a terrible loss):

Already exists

Media has already been added as '<file/directory name>'

Do you want to add additional trackers from the new download to the existing one?

[Yes] [No]

However, once one has chosen once to add the additional trackers (by selecting Yes), or if the torrent was originally added through a magnet: link, when the dialog warning shows up it will not include the message and option to add additional trackers, even if the new source does include them.

The converse is also true: If the original source is a magnet: link, a .torrent file describing the same torrent can only be used once to add additional sources while updated magnet: links will never offer such a choice. It would be nice if this restriction were lifted. (If the existing source list were checked with the provided one to make the message appear only when new sources are truly offered it would make the fix even better.)

  File checking location?
Posted by: ZippyDSMlee - Yesterday, 12:45 AM - Forum: Community Open Support - No Replies

How dose file re checking work? I use different locations for finished torrents and unfinished torrents, when I have to reload or change my OS due to windose eating its brains like the zombie it is it can drive me nuts to try and get things back to how they were before.

It dose not seem to check both locations , it seems to favor the move to directory more than the temp or vice versa. Is there any way to have it check multiple locations and organize what’s there?

This happened a few times when I used UTorrent 2.2.x, mainly had bad hard drive had to move stuff around a few times over the years and since file dates changed I could not easily grab relevant torrent and toss im in the client to re sync my downloads and uploads but since they are in separate locations it was a slog getting it all worked out, it’s bad when you are trying to finish dozens of yearlong downloads, ect.

I guess the best way to do it is just move the data files manually and not automate moving to a different folder, move the data files then delete it from vuze since I am bad about not keeping things tidy (I use Qbitorrent for seeding since I don’t seed many things since my bandwidth is caped at 70kbps). Tho that presented an issue as Vuze constantly pops up while moving stuff, nothing like playing dark souls 2 and losing control when vuze popping up telling you its moving files..

  Vuze+ not finding the torrents I ask for
Posted by: Alan Smith - 05-24-2017, 07:45 AM - Forum: Community Open Support - Replies (1)

When I search for a torrent, my Vuze + is giving me a long list of torrents I did not ask for and not giving me the ones that I DID ask for.
I can find no solution to this. Removed old Vuze+ entirely and re-installed but this did not solve the problem.

I need help - but I do not understand the technology so I need a simple answer. How do I correct this situation?

  Update to 5.7.5 has lost searches
Posted by: Squat Cobbler - 05-19-2017, 06:10 PM - Forum: Community Open Support - Replies (3)

A few weeks ago I updated Vuze, as I was being recommended to do. The search results comes in a different appearance and has 'download, details' highlighted beside it. The top search result is years old and not even close to what I searched for.
For example, I entered some keywords and the most common result was 'This Week In NASA' ... none of those words match what I typed in.
Also, when I am lucky enough to find a download I am looking for the vasy majority are not in English.
Sadly, Vuze is now nearly useless.
Any tips on how to get back to my happy dowloading?

  HELP! Extratorrent closed down! Need new search templates!
Posted by: LuvVuze - 05-19-2017, 06:29 AM - Forum: Community Open Support - No Replies

Extratorrent is GONE!  All my subscriptions were based on that site..  Inate Vuze search templates are far from comprehensive.  Can SOMEONE cfeate templates for Rarbg or eztv, etc. please and make them available to the community?.  I have no experience writing HTML and Vuze meta search is worthless without functioning search templates.  Vuze Wiki on Meta search is not comprehensive in its explanations for a newbie to HTML.

  Subscriptions not respecting Filters
Posted by: PierceBangley - 05-19-2017, 04:41 AM - Forum: Community Open Support - No Replies

I noticed the subscriptions not following the filter restrictions I've put in place. They appear to be saved, but when I minimize Vuze to the system tray and then come back later, the filters seem to have no effect again. I'm using version

EDIT: ok, so maybe I did something wrong or it was just a glitch on my end somehow because I don't seem to have the problem now.

  [RFE] Detect (and sanitize) files that are too long
Posted by: detelosk - 05-14-2017, 11:14 AM - Forum: Community Open Support - No Replies


For not well understood reasons, some of my completed torrents now contain valid files to which (invalid) data has been appended. At some point Vuze has singled out some of the cases, showing an error about the file size being too large but doing little else; in the rest of the cases, forcing a re-check on torrents with corrupt files has not caused the problem to be detected by Vuze.

First of all, it would be nice if forcing a re-check on a torrent detected such cases. Perhaps there is a reason why it cannot or should not be done; if not so, it would be great if such corrupt files could be singled out.

Second, it would be nice to be able to deal with larger than expected files from within Vuze when they are encountered. I know of no other solution than to delete and then redownload the problematic file. However, in cases where simply truncating the file would fix the problem it seems a little wasteful. I can imagine that there might be UI or coding challenges, or that perhaps a more general and exhaustive integrity check and correction solution is more desirable (and perhaps even planned); but if it were possible to offer truncation to the expected file size as a dumb but simple fix it would be welcome.
