irc-discord-bot <12chocofoxy> hey first good job huge fan of this tech , i have a question how many torrent the webtorrent object support ? can i pass all my torrent files in one object let't say 1000 torrent file ?
irc-discord-bot <12chocofoxy> it's for backend of platform so overloading network is not a problem it's gonna be over loaded more if you serve this files to users anyway
irc-discord-bot <07RicardNtex> Oh didn't know there was a Discord.

irc-discord-bot <09Feross> @chocofoxy you use HTTP web seeds for that use case. No need to involve the torrent protocol if your server is serving it anyway

@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <12chocofoxy> i have another question if you mind do ihave to recreate the torrent with webtorrent or seeding a bitorrent file will seed to webtorrent , cause i took a normal torrent added it to the Webtorrent on the server with webtorrent-hybrid than i add it to the client side even tho the server is seeding the file the client have no peers

hi guys, I have started using WebTorrent this week. It seems I am downloading torrents but not uploading. Perhaps my firewall is blocking. (Windows 10)
how do I determine what rules I would need to allow for my computer to upload as well ?
fromorrow
@fromorrow
nevermind, I believe I found out why: " WebTorrent can only download torrents that are explicitly seeded to web peers via a WebRTC-capable client."

irc-discord-bot <12Arihant> Hello! I just stumbled upon web torrent and I wanted to ask – Is synchronised streaming possible with web torrent streaming ( kinda what netflix party does? )? Is it already available? If not, is it possible to build something like that? If yes, I'd like to.

@irc-gitter-bot
rom1504 if you mean synchronise the watching time between several people, that's something you'd need to implement on top
irc-discord-bot <12Arihant> Thank you! Do you know any project who have already done that by any chance?
rom1504 you could consider adding something on top of that

ikieMee8 Hii
irc-discord-bot <09graingert> libtorrent is fairly popular so might even get android and etc clients up to it
ikieMee8 After I seed a torrent for first time I'm getting 0 peers found
ikieMee8 Is there a fix for this issue

irc-discord-bot <09Faizan> how to download torrent on server and seed it from there. Actually I'm trying to host and seed torrent from server and charge from user. How can I download to server and show it react front-end real time?

@ThaUnknown
is it possible to download torrents via UDP/TCP with PWA's?
or is that chromeapp/node only
Frank Lemanschik
@frank-dspeed
Yes that is possible
and you should not call it PWA
PWA is a term from google
Lets call it web browser
the rest does not matter and yes webtorrent works great in a browser

irc-discord-bot <09Feross> This is huge
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> Really glad that this finally happened! Huge thanks to everyone who helped make it happen
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <09graingert> @Feross yeah it's huge! Do you think this will provide movement on a BEP?
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
rom1504 it's great
rom1504 I think there'll be some delay before it's released, used in some big apps (rtorrent I guess), and updated in distribution / used by people, but it's definitely a big unblocker
rom1504 in a few months there could definitely be more traffic on the trackers :)
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> Yeah, I would love to finally complete that BEP
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> Should have just written it up a long time ago πŸ™‚
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> I just wrote a post explaining what the libtorrent support means for WebTorrent: https://feross.org/libtorrent-webtorrent/
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> I just submitted it to Hacker News, if anyone wants to go upvote it πŸ™‚
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <08alxhotel> Yep, this is a big step πŸ™‚
irc-discord-bot <08alxhotel> Although I fear that the bittorrent clients could leave the "Webtorrent/WebRTC feature" disabled by default
irc-discord-bot <08alxhotel> But I guess we can worry about that later on hahah
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> Yeah, agree
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <09Feross> Hey everyone – we could use a boost of this post. It's on the Hacker News "New" page. 1. Go to https://news.ycombinator.com 2. Click "new" in the header 3. Scroll down to "Libtorrent adds support for the WebTorrent protocol" and upvote (may be on the second page)
