Need a torrent client?

Check out:

-uTorrent
http://www.utorrent.com

-Azureus
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/index.php

-BitComet
http://www.bitcomet.com/doc/download.htm




Have a question about Bit Torrents?

- Feel free to post/ask questions here in the forums!

-Until we have our own here at Convivea,
take a look at this guide from Slyck.com:

http://www.slyck.com/bt.php




Bit Che reporting Torrent Client not installed, but you do have one installed?

1. "save" a torrent in Bit Che to your hard drive
2. double click the .torrent you saved in Windows Explorer
3. it should ask you how you want to open the file.. so just find uTorrent (or whatever torrent client you want) and click OK
4. from now on, that torrent client will be properly associated with .torrents and Bit Che will have no problems opening them straight to the client
 


New to Bit Che?
Read this quick user guide. It will help a lot and is worth your time:

i think just the main features that a person who is new to torrents would want to know about..  such as, how to configure where do the downloads go, what seeding/leeching are...  etc.. doesnt need to be too indepth.. I just know a bunch of people who are just starting to use bit torrent for the first time and the idea of a search program + a download client is a little confusing at first, plus bit torrent downloads differently than traditional p2p apps which also confuses some people...          a few screen shots here or there would be nice..    I think i'm going to install Wiki on my webserver to make it easy for people to help write or edit either tutorials, or help files, or any other information related to this project.

thanks!

First off not to be mean but you should've made yer own topic for help......

Here's a topic that may have the answer------->http://www.convivea.com/forums/index.php?topic=439.0

possibly you don't have Utorrent as your default torrent prog????.......Are you running vista,there was something about having vista in link above????........Have you tried reinstalling???......

Hopefully it will be something easy like what I mentioned above, if u still have probs make a new topic to get Chips attention........Thanks and Good Luck

sometimes the torrent clients dont properly associate their filetypes, but here a manual method for doing just that. try this:

1. "save" a torrent in Bit Che to your hard drive
2. double click the .torrent you saved in Windows Explorer
3. it should ask you how you want to open the file.. so just find uTorrent (or whatever torrent client you want) and click OK
4. from now on, that torrent client will be properly associated with .torrents and Bit Che will have no problems opening them straight to the client

only time Bit Che launches the webpage instead of the torrent is if it cant read the torrent.. if i'm not mistaken, the only site in build 59 like this is BTJunkie.org..  you can avoid this by looking to see if there is (ext) next to the name of the result source.. eg;    BTJunkie (ext)

for those, the torrents arent accessible but still show up in the results when you search the site, so if you want it, you have to go to the page and follow the instructions.. build 60 will let you ignore these results if you want..


and finally, if this isnt what you're talking about, then double check your torrent client's file association, since Bit Che launches the torrents with shell_execute, its up to your client to make sure its properly associated.

Yes, same problem here, when the program starts it says there's no client installed.

I tried the solution that was given, saving a torrent, opening it with Windows Explorer, etc.
Same issue again.

I am using BitSpirit to open torrents, not such a popular one, not sure if this could be the reason.

Fantastic program though, this is the only issue I have with it, otherwise it would be a 5/5 ... 4.5/5 for now.  :-)

Thanks to the developer !

Not a Bit Che problem but has anyone notice when trying to acquire a file via Bit Che to Torrentbox  and see a file error? (image below) Now this only happens when I try to acquire a torrent file thru Torrentbox.

ok, looks like TorrentBox site is no longer providing .torrent files for download but rather linking over to a page at IsoHunt.com. thus, when you try to download it with Bit Che, its actually only saving the .html file from IsoHunt.com (which is why you'll notice nothing comes up when you try to view the .Torrent Details in Bit Che)..  so unfortunately, it looks like the results from TorrentBox will need to be address as (ext) links, which will require you to actually visit the webpage to track down the .torrent like some of the results at BTJunkie.org (ext).

there might be something that I can do about this in the future builds of Bit Che but it doesnt seem likely since you have to jump through several webpages to find the actual .torrent..

To be honest, for sites that start doing this, once build 60 is out and you do proper analysis of whether a site adds anything new to the search or not, knocking such sites off Bit Che (or at least not leaving them as default).

Don't like the way that Azureus is going lately, or shall I call it by the new game Vuze?

uTorrent is more my kind of style, simple and no adware
