irc-discord-bot<04stephin> i like webtorrent because of its simplicity and its events which is nicely suits my usecase
irc-discord-bot<04stephin> please make webtorrent support 100+ torrents
irc-discord-bot<06anesu> The solution below is if you have a lot of resources to scale. I.e you can't expect to be downloading thousands of torrents with barely any ram and a single core etc You could have 1 instance of node.js that handles seeding once a torrent is downloaded. Not sure what's the limit on that though (no of torrents seeding at any given time). Could be used as a central control to handle the new sub processes. By that I
irc-discord-botmean launch instances of node that handle 5 torrents max to download and close them accordingly based on scaling.
irc-discord-bot<09Feross> Please help people discover WebTorrent. Give it a heart and 5 stars on this review website! https://alternativeto.net/software/webtorrent/about/ React with a ❤️ to indicate you've done it
irc-discord-bot<06zaaz> by methods, i mean .put() and .get()
passingbyJust came by the github library for webtorrent :)
passingbyForgive my inexperience please. I'm a web dev, but there are currently huge holes in my understanding/knowledge
passingbyCould this system in effect enable the creation of a simple streaming site that is run by p2p connections?
irc-discord-bot<11ThaUnknown_> TLDR: not yet, but very soon, pls contribute if you're coming from the anime communities I'll say simply: lack of codec and subtitle support doesn't make it viable. if you're not then: codec support and video container support isn't great, but that's due to change this year for sure, it also might not handle itself well on low ended devices because of how the lib handles buffers, this is also 100% gonna change,
irc-discord-botstoring large torrents >5GB also gets difficult if you want super high quality playback, but that's also gonna be changed very soon
irc-discord-bot<11ThaUnknown_> like netflix
irc-discord-bot<11ThaUnknown_> video might be challenging depending on your criteria/demands tho
irc-discord-bot<11ThaUnknown_> again, it's all possible and working, but viability is another concern
irc-discord-bot<06zaaz> if i want to use dht.put() or dht.get() along with webtorrent at the same time, i gotta instantiate the another dht, if we can access the dht instance webtorrent is already using, that would be great. is that possible already. if not that is fine, i will keep on using the way i have
irc-discord-bot<06zaaz> read more about mutable torrents, some people brought up security issues of having someone automatically making an update and people unknowingly seeding a malicious torrent/file. so the arbitrary data/bep44 can be a way to store infohashes and update them with a newer info hash as the message with each new update. i'm no pro, not even a beginner but this was fun. made this shitty play package. too bad browser can't do
irc-discord-botdht, i can envision pasting a infohash on the address url bar and then downloading a torrent/app and being served by others peers instead of a central server.
irc-discord-bot<03jsNinja> Check out https://www.npmjs.com/package/dht-keyvalue. I'm working on a browser version, but it requires a server component still.
irc-discord-bot<03jsNinja> By the way, DHT will be dropped in 2 hours if not refreshed. That could serve as the .remove().
irc-discord-bot<03jsNinja> Anyone know of any groups/forums/channels for P2P developers & implementers in addition to this one? I've found it pretty challenging to find others to talk with about projects I'm working on, share ideas, tips etc. This channel is great, but something more active would be nice.
irc-discord-bot<09Feross> Here you go: #🤝p2p-protocols
irc-discord-bot<04Anand Jha> wanted to ask something i have cloned instant.io to local and piping it via the ngrok. scene 1 - working fine when the two devices are in same network scene 2- working fine when network 1 is in instant.io and the other in my local ngrok pipe scene 3 - dosent work in the different network ( like one device is in phone network and other in wifi network ) but seeding sems to be fine. i did replaced webtorrent
irc-discord-botwith webtorrent-hybrid but now ICE is not connecting of saying connectio failed. what am i doing wrong here
