Batch change tracker URL for torrents

Postby stogie bear » Sun Dec 04, 2016 2:05 am

Is this possible? Maybe via a plugin? Had a look but I cant find anything. I migrated from utorrent using the utorrent importing plugin and for some reason a load of torrents have outdated anounce URLs.

You said you couldn't find anything. And the take away is, read the ticket and try the script...

I found that page when I searched before it just didnt seem like any use to an average user like me. Don't I need some sort of programming software to compile that?

maybe some valuable info http://forum.deluge-torrent.org/viewtopic.php?t=54208
Cas has written a script, I guess it's one one he points you on https://gist.github.com/cas--/5326335

Anyway if you don't want to automate (script, etc) you can always do it the hard way: in the interface select torrent one by one and right click "edit tracked". You will have the possibility to change the address without specific knowledge except the address you have to use.

I know I can change the tracker one by one, thats precisely what I wanted to avoid having to do haha. Alas that appears to be my only option at this point, never mind!

It only requires that Python is installed. Then you can modify and run the script.
