1. thought: Sounds excellent!
2. thought: Details needed! :)

mmh.. details.. MyTorrents is just a simple plugin that you can use to control your uTorrent. You can
also use it to search torrents (only Mininova : The ultimate BitTorrent source! supported currently) and to start downloading them.
Only thing which is a bit "unique" is a possibility to add "watches".

You can for example do things such as "once torrent X will appear on Mininova : The ultimate BitTorrent source! and it has Y amount of seeders, start downloading it."

MyTorrents will automatically once a while (configurable, default once in hour) try to found torrent which will match to your "watch".

Looks nice. Does it support RSS feeds?


No RSS feed support currently.
Can you give me a hint what kind of a RSS feed support could be there?

Torrent RSS tutorial

Also, the old torrent plugin for MediaPortal does have support for it. It's very convinient if you have access to a feed.

Nice, thanks! :)

Didn't know RSS is used for torrent publishing purposes also.. :)
Didn't know about old torrent plugin either, should probably do some research first ;)

Anyways, I will probably add support for RSS feeds, if I just find a good one to test with..

Does it support labels?
I have my utorrent setup with some permanent labels, so for example movies goes into a "movies" directory wich is scanned by movingpictures. And soforth, a label for music etc. Quite handy

Is it possible to edit trackers, so you could use others than mininova? Would be nice. I have tried to set upp the other myttorrent plugin in streamedmp with no success, so im realy looking forward to this.

Browsing and adding torrents from RSS-feeds would be realy neat, since this is more rc friendly. And also has a high WAF

Im looking forward to see more on this!

I haven't got the time to try it out yet, but it sounds really nice! =)
Since a lot of downloaded movies comes in winrar format, is it, or will it be possible to extract it when the torrent is downloaded?

Hey man, good to see a revised torrent plugin, but for the life of me I can't work out how to set this up.... It does not ask for a uTorrent directory or any other info, very few settings... Also only the one plugin show up, yet I've dragged 3 to the directory.. Am I missing something here.
