Thread: KTorrent magnet link stuck on 0 peers for downloads that have heaps of them

    Default KTorrent magnet link stuck on 0 peers for downloads that have heaps of them

    Hi there,

    When I go to use a magnet link in Mozilla Firefox and open with Ktorrent, the torrent never appears under "all torrents" and instead is visible from the magnet links tab with a status of "downloading" and is stuck with peers = 0. The torrent in question has hundreds of peers and many seeds and I've downloaded it successfully in uTorrent in Microsoft Windows. Also, the show tips on startup only displays the one tip, even if i click "next tip" or "previous tip" its stuck on the same one until I close the tips.

    Do I have a dodgy installation of ktorrent or are there settings I need to manage?

    it's an old bug, if there are no trackers defined in the magnet URI ktorrent will not work, there are 2 options ether manually add a tracker URI to every magnet or use qbittorrent.

    ps. do you have dht on? it's off by default and it doesn't effect the tracker bug but turn it on ... and wait for a fix.

    Qbittorrent works fine, thankyou. Out of interest when will there be a fix for this? KTorrent also seems to crash my computer when its running; the screen goes black and after a while the caps lock button flashes
