Web Seeds

Koinonein Desktop Web Seeds Tab

Web seeding is the ability of BitTorrent clients to download torrent pieces from an HTTP source in addition to the swarm. The advantage of this feature is that a website may distribute a torrent for a particular file or batch of files and make those files available for download from that same web server; this can simplify long-term seeding and load balancing through the use of existing, cheap, web hosting setups. In theory, this makes using BitTorrent almost as easy for a web publisher as creating a direct HTTP download. In addition, it would allow the “web seed” to be disabled if the swarm becomes too popular while still allowing the file to be readily available.

You can sort the web seeds by clicking the column header.

Web seeds are managed by right clicking them, you’ll be shown a menu with the following options:

Clicking this will show you the following dialog that lets you add a web seed to the torrent.

Clicking this will delete the selected web seed.

Koinonein BitTorrent Client manages web seeds for you and any web seeds known to be invalid will be ignored from the list.
