December 19, 2017 Leave a comment

The status of downloaded torrents in Vuze switch to “queued” after a while. How to keep them in “seeding” status?

I found the solution here. It works for me.

What comes after torrent?

February 23, 2015 Leave a comment

Today I found an excellent application called Popcorn Time. Are you tired of waiting 10 minutes for your torrent to be fully downloaded? Watch movies and TV Shows instantly! Popcorn Time streams movies and TV shows from torrents.

You can select quality and subtitles too! Pure awesomeness IMO.

I tried it under Manjaro and it’s available in the AUR. Under Ubuntu just download the archive and it contains a binary executable. And, they also have an Android client!

Popcorn Time uses the following torrent trackers: er.sty//:ptth (HD movies at the smallest file size); hc.vtze//:sptth (TV shows), moc.nahcihurah.www//:ptth (anime).

As I read it in /r/popcorntime, “you can ctrl+v paste magnet links in popcorn time or drag torrent files into it if it doesn’t have the show you want. It will take any torrent, it just only displays YTS and eztv”. Cool.

Update (20160104)
The original PopcornTime seems to be dead. But it has a community edition, which seems to have the same functionality: . Reddit announcement here. The Manjaro package is called popcorntime-community.

Automate with IFTTT

IFTTT is a great service that enables users to connect different web applications (e.g., Facebook, Evernote, Weather, Dropbox, etc.) together through simple conditional statements known as “Recipes”.” (via wikipedia)

IFTTT stands for “if this then that”. That is, if a condition is met, then an action is triggered.

Here is a nice introductory video. It shows how to get an SMS if it’s going to rain tomorrow:


Let’s see another example. Say you have a favourite TV show that you want to watch as soon as possible. When the new episode is out, you want to get an email notification.

As reddit user ACreatureVoidOfForm pointed out, we need and “Create a page on showrss for all the shows you watch and generate an RSS feed. Create a rule on ifttt to email you when a new entry is added to the feed.” (tip from here)

Torcache is a free service for caching t. files online. I noticed by accident (got a timeout error…) that one big t. site stores its t. files here too.
