    Haha, if you download things with bittorrent you NEED this app. I just set it up last night and I love it. It allows you to search for torrents from your phone and send them to your home computer and start downloading them.

    Now when I'm away from home and I think of something I want to download I can search for it and start it so I don't have to wait for it to download, most likely it will be finished by time I get home. It is compatible with uTorrent and Transmission.

    Here is a great walkthrough on setting it up.

    Yup, great app. I was actually surprised at how easy it was to setup. Plus, it'll work on any system: Windows, Mac, or Linux. I'm using it to connect to Transmission on my linux box at home.

    That is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a linux box running boxee in the living room that is always on and runs transmission in the background.

    What is evil about it? I've tried it with a number of dvds I own but haven't had success with any of them.

    I use kickasstorrents.com and h33t.com and a few others for 99% of my torrents. Anyone able to toss me a quick tip on how to add extra search engines?

    That's one thing I haven't been able to figure out either. I've tried adding btjunkie.org and kickasstorrents.com but neither of them work.

    Has anybody else added a custom search provider successfully?

    for btjunkie use this:
    and for kickasstorrents:

    I didn't see the correct link for h33t.

    To find the correct link you need to do a search on the torrent site and then find the orange rss icon. For btjunkie it is just above the list of torrents right after "search results for x"
    right click on the rss icon and copy link location (or similar depending on your browser.) When you put it into torrent-fu replace the search term with [searchterm] including the brackets.

    I have but I had some help getting the correct url because it was for a private tracker and had to have my passkey and stuff in it.

    For public trackers you just need to get the rss search url..
    For example after googling for btjunkie rss search I found it and tried it out and this is what you're after:

    Code (Text):
    1. http://btjunkie.org/rss.xml?query=[searchterm]

    edit - doh, beaten to it :p

    Thanks guys, that works great for btjunkie. I swear I had that exact same thing entered for kickasstorrents but it wasn't working. I tried it again after you posted it and now it works. hmmmm... Oh well, thanks again!

    Question, does it download the torrent file (not the actual data for what you want but the small thing that loads into the bittorrent program) onto your phone than send it? Does it leave it behind?

    Nope, it doesn't download to your phone. Torrent-fu basically tells the bittorrent program where the torrent is so it can download it directly.
     
  18. hmm so i gotta do some port forwarding tomorrow but the only problem is im using a mac and i downloaded utorrent but theres no options for "WebUI" to set up a username and pass..

    anyone set this up on mac?

    From what I understand Transmission+TorrerntFu+Macs work fine. Don't quote me on that, I'm an iHater.

    Torrent-Fu was made specifically for uTorrent and Transmission. Both have web interfaces which Torrent-Fu is basically a front-end for.

    It doesn't matter what OS you are running as long as you have uTorrent or Transmission running. You're just send data through a certain port to the computer and that's all it knows. Has nothing to do with the OS really.

    You can count me among the ihaters as well, haha. I very rarely voice my opinion on the matter, but it's hard holding back sometimes. People get very defensive about it and it's not worth my time to get in an argument over it.

    I figure if people want to waste their money that's their right. Only thing I can do is not spend my own money on their crap and silently laugh to myself at the people who do.
