Adding Torrents

Show me the Add New Torrent dialog

If checked the Add New Torrent dialog will show before a .torrent is added to Koinonein BitTorrent Client.

This lets you select what files to download and allows you to edit the trackers along with the save location and the torrent name.

The Add New Magnet dialog is the same as the torrent dialog except that dialog won’t show until Koinonein BitTorrent Client has fetched the torrent file from the the other users of the torrent.

If you don’t select any of these options Koinonein BitTorrent Client will add the .torrent file as it is but you can still change the trackers and save folder along with choosing what files to download at any time.

Use BEP53

If checked whenever you add a magnet link that uses BEP53 you won’t be shown the Add New Magnet dialog as the files to download are already chosen, you can still select what files you want from the Files tab at any time.

Audio Notifications

If Play Audio Notifications is checked then Koinonein will play the default system notification sound when certain dialogs are shown and when all tray notifications are shown.

Default BitTorrent Client

Let me know if this is not the default BitTorrent Client when checked will show a dialog each time you start Koinonein BitTorrent Client provided Koinonein BitTorrent Client is not the default application for .torrent files and magnet links.

If you click Yes in this dialog then Koinonein BitTorrent Client gets set as the default application for .torrent files and magnet links and that means when you download any .torrent file or double click on any .torrent file or click on a magnet link on any website Koinonein BitTorrent Client will open the corresponding link or file.

Set as the default BitTorrent client will set Koinonein BitTorrent Client as the default application for .torrent files files and magnet links. If this option is disabled then that means Koinonein BitTorrent Client is already set as the default application.
