Potential Additional Download Method

As some who follow my site know, RavingAndDrooling.com (the successor to Yeeshkul) has adopted DHT torrents (aka tracker-less torrents) as their mechanism to share music. I gave this a try today, sharing one of the bootlegs from Gullveig at the R&D site.

I am considering this as an additional download method to use here and at PurpleHippies.com. “Take downs” by FileFactory and mega.nz have always been an issue, and tracker-less torrents would avoid that problem. That would be one way to ensure that the Sigma bootlegs I posted today could remain available even if FF and/or mega take down these bootlegs.

Any comments on this would be welcome. Particularly if you have had problems with tracker-less torrents.

Note: I would continue to post all new bootlegs at FileFactory and mega.nz as well.

  1. The repost of “Wall In Progress” Sigma release was intended as a trial run for sharing bootlegs via DHT torrents. But it looks like attaching a torrent file to a WordPress post is not possible. Sigh. I have, however, included a magnet uri in that post.


      • I just figured out what I was doing wrong!

        magnet:? was on the line above what I thought was the link, so I did NOT cut and paste starting there. I started on the next line down. Don’t know if this anyone else’s issues or not. Worked fine once I cut and pasted the whole thing.


      • Excellent! Glad it working for you now. I’m not happy with how the magnet is formatted/displayed, but I haven’t figured out how to make it less confusing.


      • Is it possible to break the entire magnet link so that it is over, say maybe 3 or four
        short lines, instead of one long link? Since it is a cut and paste, I don’t think this would affect anything and then no issues missing part of the link?


  2. The magnet URI does work for downloading both to a qBitTorrent client and to a seedbox. Unfortunately, it is necessary to include the magnet uri as text in the post, rather than as a link — as WordPress mangles the URL, resulting in a ‘url not found’ page.
