irc-discord-bot <07saipavankumar> How to preview the torrent so that I can select the files I want to download

I hope this is the right channel to ask about webtorrent/bittorrent-tracker. In the README it says that customParam can be provided to the tracker. Does it also mean that the tracker will forward this customParam to all the peers?
// provide parameters to the tracker
client.update({
  uploaded: 0,
  downloaded: 0,
  left: 0,
  customParam: 'blah' // custom parameters supported
})

irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> hello I have a question about webtorrent web library.
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> why when i add magnet url from 1377x it doesn't work? but when i use default magnet (that is in doc) it works fine
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> Probably the magnet doesn't have webrtc peers.

Try webtorrrent-hybrid
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> when i add that magnet to desktop client it works fine. Despite lack of webrtc nodes. web and client webtorrent doesn't use same library?

No I think not
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> Correct, webtorrent desktop has access to all type of peers. Browser is only webrtc
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> Thanks 👍
irc-discord-bot <09Endless> We need more torrent client that support webrtc in the world!
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> oh, so you do have a discord!
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> currently working on one
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> there is any alternative way to stream from browser without webrtc peers?
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> no
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> well... webseeds
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> how i understand that whether magnet/torrent supported by webrtc peers or not?
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> all torrents are supported by wrtc peers
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> it having wrtc peers is another story
irc-discord-bot <11ThaUnknown_> you'd need to scrape trackers to figure that out
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> general rule: there isn't webrtc peers for a torrent unless you are the one adding webrtc peers to that torrent
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> where can i read about it?
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> about... what?
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> that how i can add webrtc peer to torrent
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> You'd need to seed from webtorrent desktop or browser
irc-discord-bot <12alidevjimmy> thank you so much.

irc-discord-bot <06Jeff> Hi mates
irc-discord-bot <06Jeff> Can I use an http file like http://mydomain.com/myfile.txt to create a magnet link? Maybe mounting like a local file somehow?
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> you'd need to fetch it, seed it with client, get magnet, add webseed
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> then you'd have a magnet with the webseed available
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <06Jeff> I was able to do it using sshfs, thanks @DiegoRBaquero
irc-discord-bot <06Jeff> another question, pls, I was looking at the issues and I've seen that there are some alternatives for in-memory storage of chunks, like using indexdb etc. But I couldn't find a way to use it in pure html/js, from a CDN, or importing the js file on a <script tag.
irc-discord-bot <06Jeff> this guy
irc-discord-bot <06Jeff> I'd like to use any of those to try to reduce memory usage
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <03jsNinja> Check out Dexie: https://dexie.org/docs/Tutorial/Getting-started. It's a wrapper for IndexedDb. Makes it easy to use and has a script tag w/ a CDN link.

irc-discord-bot <03jsNinja> Are there any known issues with the latest version of Safari and WebTorrent? I'm trying to use Bugout, but Safari never makes connections. Other browsers I've beein using (Chrome, Brave) work fine. Debugging Bugout, I see the torrent is created. [Safari Version 14.1.1 (15611.2.7.1.6, 15611)]
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <06anesu> Yeah. My only workaround right now is webseeds sadly. This affects WebKit browsers as far as I've tested so including browsers like Safari, Gnome Web etc. Yes some that were based off that like the Chrome Browser (if I recall correctly) have long branched off so yeah
irc-discord-bot <06anesu> You'll need to also have a torrent file rather than just a magnet to make it work with webseeds properly.
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <03jsNinja> @anesu any ideas why? In previous versions of Safari, I had no issues.
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <03jsNinja> Well, I shouldn't say 'no issues', there were longer delays than other browsers, but I always got a connection... eventually

irc-discord-bot <12Iskandar VI> hello
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <03jsNinja> Is there any way to get the magnet URI metadata by doing a lookup with an infoHash? E.g. using bittorrent-tracker, or bittorrent-dht? Or other?
irc-gitter-bot
@irc-gitter-bot
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> not by themselves
irc-discord-bot <08DiegoRBaquero> torrent-discovery will only help discover peers
