qBittorrent is a free and open-source torrent client based on the Qt 5 toolkit and the libtorrent-rasterbar library. qBittorrent is known for being remarkably safe and fast. Plus, it includes feature highlights such as a built-in torrent search engine, a torrent creator, and a fantastic web UI.
qBittorrent is designed to serve as an excellent open-source (and free) alternative to uTorrent, BitTorrent, and other commercial BitTorrent clients in the market. The software is known to be reasonably reliable, stable, and fast.
You can also download qBittorrent from source tarball or binaries. All source tarballs and binaries are PGP signed (public key for PGP signing) starting from qBittorrent v3.3.4. You can download qBittorrent source tarball from TAR.GZ and PGP signature (SourceForge)
A healthy torrent swarm has a good share ratio between seeders (users with the entire file) and peers (the users getting the content and helping distribute it. A third player comes into place, leechers the users downloading the content but not uploading it. If the share ratio within a torrent swarm is unbalanced, for instance, there are more leechers than peers, everyone in the swarm will experience slow speeds.
NOTE for Private Tracker users: Bear in mind that if you are downloading torrents from a private tracker, the Anonymous mode will remove the entire information from the torrent tracker. Private trackers use passkeys to identify themselves, so if this is removed, you will not be recognized as a valid user. You will not be able to connect to the tracker and the torrent swarm.
With a seedbox, you download and upload torrents from and to the VPS seedbox and only use your local computer for remote login and torrent management. Torrents and their content are stored in the cloud, and when you want to download them to your premises, you can use other secure methods like RSync or SFTP. In addition, you can also use a seedbox with a Plex media server to organize and stream all your content online.
You can also use customized unofficial Qt UI themes for all platforms. For instance, you can download a different version of the qBittorrent dark theme from its official repository [qBittorrentDarktheme] and install it.
One of the cool features of qBittorrent is that it comes with an integrated torrent search engine (written in Python). The search engine allows you to search for torrents on simultaneous torrent search sites and specify your search request based on category, for instance, music, movies, books, software, etc.
qBittorrent supports RSS feeds so that you can automatically download your favorite torrents. Whenever a new torrent is added and listed on an RSS feed, you can configure your client to download it automatically. This support includes advanced download filters (including regex) to improve your RSS feeds. 2b1af7f3a8
