Janus,

Just tried to use the Torrent option on some sessions, with the GetRight client - it just sits there ......

Do these actually work yet ? If so, what cklient should be used ? If not ... can the hyperlink be disabled ?

GetRight doesn\'t seem to be able to find any seeds (users who have the whole file), only peers (who have only part or none).

Works fine here.

Utorrent, seeding 3 session with 10 active peers, but I\'ve noticed that everytime I download a session with utorrent the webserver acts as a seeder and sends the file.

I tested it with uTorrent and Azureus myself and seems to be working just fine. However, the system is still very much in a testing phase - if you\'ve got the time for it please look into what clients work and what clients don\'t work; and which errors they give, if any.

just build myself a seeder using uTorrent.
seeding the most recent 82 highest quality moviefiles.
business is slow, but it seems to work.

I am getting this messages on a number of torrents:

no idea what it means or if it\'s bad or not, just thought I would post it.

s000428_movie_mpeg4_q96.avi
s000516_movie_mpeg4_q96.avi
s000538_movie_mpeg4_q96.avi

Does it happen only the first time you tell your client to get the files and not on subsequent attempts?

It seems to happen when there\'s noone else requesting those files. Within not too long there\'ll be some bigger files that can be used for more testing.

I have around 50+ completed downloads (seeds), my client reports i have leechers (on average 3 or 4) but none of them take data from me, except for one file that uploaded a measly 64K.
BTW: I am using KTorrent 2.2.1
