    Hello again!

    Time to release something!
    This is the very first pre-ultra-buggy-alpha version of the plugin.
    It doesn't do much... Things you can do:
    - Monitor your donwloads on uTorrent or Deluge;
    - Pause, Start and Stop torrents;
    - Search and download torrents from ThePirateBay and KickAssTorrents;

    I've not created the Google Code project yet, as I still need to clean some code...
    After that, I hope that the code/interfaces will be more stable, so I can release some info on how to add support to your favorite search engine or torrent back end.

    Feedback/suggestions will be more than welcome!

    Instructions:

    - Put the files inside Windows in your pluginsWindows folder;
    - Put the files inside Skin into your Skin folder (the included files works fine with Blue3Wide. It also works with StreamedMP, but the background is black, with no image).

    Enjoy!

    Re: [Ideas] - New plugin for Torrents

    I'm not sure if you already know but there is a plugin for downloading, it is similar than SubCentral (+SubtitleDownloader) and uses it's code:

    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...s-moving-pictures-mediaportal-tvseries-88295/

    I haven't had time to look at it close enough, but it should support different kind of backends and not only torrents, maybe something you can use..

    Re: [Ideas] - New plugin for Torrents

    Thanks for the comments, Seco!

    Actually, I did not know that DownloadCentral support torrent files too.
    Last time I checked, it didn't.

    So I took a quick look at the plugin and I think the idea is great!

    But one thing that I don't like very much is the integration method to the backend.
    In my opinion, using web ui from torrent backend makes things simpler to the end-user and from the configuration point of view.

    I could use some of his ideas (specially support other kind of backends).

    Anyway, I think this development is worth a try.
    Maybe, in the future, my code could even be merged with downloadcentral.

    Let's see if someone else is interested in this plugin...
    Otherwise I think I'll keep it private...

    :D

    Re: [Ideas] - New plugin for Torrents

    Just an update.
    Here are some screenshots of the config screen and inside MediaPortal.
    The skin files are somewhat "stolen" from MyTorrents plugin.
    Ideas for skin layout are always welcome!! :D

    By now, the supported torrent backends are uTorrent and Deluge. I plan to support others in the future.

    In the next steps, I'll implement support for search and download of torrent files.

    I'm also thinking of new features, like direct download from mp-tvseries, moving-pictures and onlinevideos (itunes trailers).
    Maybe, some day, other kind of backend (like FTP, eMule, etc) will be added.

    So, stay tuned! :cool:

    I'm really interested in this project. Especially the search torrents and adding it to utorrent part. Hope it goes well, I would be glad to test if you need a hand.

    Re: [Ideas] - New plugin for Torrents

    Hi, Hedehede81!

    Thanks for the interest!
    Right now I'm a little busy because of some work stuff, but I think that next week I can get back to the plugin development.

    It is already working with search and download of torrents from ThePirateBay and KickAssTorrents.
    I'm having some trouble dealing with isoHunt.
    I hope to release something that could be tested in two weeks, at maximum.

    For now, the only skin supported is BlueWide, but I'll try to make something for StreamedMP too.

    And your help will be much appreciated!
    :D

    Re: [Ideas] - New plugin for Torrents

    Are you planning to add downloading ability? I have tried to add local tracker to MyTorrents, but it did not work and author did not respond, so i could not do it. So i'm looking for alternatives :)

    Hi matejdro!

    What do you mean by "downloading ability"?
    Right now, I can search and download torrents from ThePirateBay and KickAssTorrents...

    Is it what you want?

    If it's not, please explain....

    Thanks!
