I want to deviate from the path of a fetal alcohol syndrome victim, and get rid of utorrent.
What would be the best torrent client for animu?
qbittorrent. The RSS is easy to use and it's overall a better program.
You say "for animu" as if there are different clients for different torrents, namely anime torrents. There is no such distinction.
The best torrent client is qBittorrent. If you're running Linux, it's rTorrent.
Another vote for qBitTorrent.
I only said that so some janitor wouldn't declare NOT ANIMU and nuke the thread.
I'll check out qbittorent! Thanks, girls.
woah it's like the WinMX of torrent clients
rtorrent if you aren't a scrub. qbittorrent if you are
qBittorrent is my favorite.
qbit is so fucking shit god damn stop recommending it
I use deluge
Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's shit.
What do you use?
>>100458188 I came to /a/ after I got sick of uTorrent's shit (using an obsolete version of a torrent program is asking for shit) I tried most of the suggestions and ended up sticking with Transmission-QTx64.
Tixati, but I'm forced to use qshit for a private tracker because it's the least shit on their whitelist but half of it's functions don't even work.
Ok I lol'd a bit at that OP.
And, /a/ likes to call it hipster garbage, but I switched over to Tixati and have liked it so far. Simple, light-weight, no ads, no bullshit. Also uTorrent was giving me crazy ass problems with dropped connections. This one hasn't given me an issue yet.
qbittorrent use to be pretty terrible, but with the last couple of updates it's one of the best torrent cilents for windows machines now.
why so much hate for uT?
uT current is a sad shell of its former self as it got bought out and has lumped on feature after feature no one asked for and tracking on the backend.
uTorrent 2.2.1 while a fantastic client is still an old piece of software so if you download from any tracker you don't have confidence in you are asking for trouble.
uTorrent still serves all my needs. Sure it's bloated, but I have a dedicated drive for uTorrent, with remoting set up so that I can start downloads it from any computer without installing a thing. Set up a network drive and VPN, and you can get your anime any time and anywhere.
halite mite b cool
OP you could have just asked in /g/'s Stupid Questions Thread instead of shitting up the front page of /a/ with this not anime thread
rtorrent + rutorrent.
No it's not. Tell you what is though, Tixati. You must be a homosexual MLP fan or something.
All the problems that have come up are because it's proprietary. There's obviously malicious features in there now, as it is now adware and shoves that in your face. But other than that there's no telling what malicious spying features it may or may not have. Older versions aren't adware, and a lot of people use them, but it's old abandonware and I think it's stupid to continue using a very outdated abandoned version of utorrent instead of just switching to an actively developed FOSS client.
If it wasn't proprietary, you know what would have happened? Well the ads would have never happened in the first place, but if they did it would just get forked as soon as it happened and development would continue without them. People wouldn't be stuck with an ancient abandoned version.
what "malicious features" are you talking about? I've never gotten an ad, either.
The fact that modern versions by default remotely inject ads into the interface.
Other than that no one can know what malicious spying features it may or may not have, because it is proprietary software. I would not doubt it has some though.
i've updated my uT for years (now that I check mine's 3.2) and I haven't seen so much as a single ad. where are you downloading it from? rofl
