Well good news you can still download content directly from them without ever loading up your web browser.
Each Torrent client currently has the ability to download torrents/magnet link hashe’s from inside them.
Utorrent, QBittorrent, Vuze and a load of other clients freely available has this feature built right into them.
Instead of going through each client since there is so many i will use UTorrent as an example since it’s most widely used.
Once you understand how this works you can apply the same methods to the other applications if needed but lets start.
µTorrent has a built in torrent search engine that will search individual torrent sites through your browser.
The search sites included in this engine at default will not yield the results that most users want.
The µTorrent torrent search is in the upper right hand corner of µTorrent.
If you are not seeing the above screen, then press Options and click on Show Category List.
(older versions) or Show Sidebar (newer versions) Or just press F7 in any version.
You will then see one of the two images below.
Click on Torrents or the downward arrow to show torrents and the search box as in the first image above.
Do not click on Find Content as that will give a Bing search.
To conduct a search enter the search terms in the search box and press the magnifying glass image next to the box, or press Enter on your computer. If you enter a search term and press the downward arrrow next to the magnifying glass, you will be able to choose the site to search from and when you do the search will begin.
The usual search operators will generally work here, but it does depend on whether the site being searched supports the operators. For example, “linux mint” will return results where those two words are next to each other, linux -mint will return results with the word linux and without the word mint.
Three of the four search sites included at default will produce few results and the fourth, Google, will produce too many.
For this torrent search to be effective, torrent search sites will need to be added to the search provider listings.
Adding Torrent Search Sites to µtorrent Torrent Search
To add torrent search sites to µTorrent’s torrent search the µTorrent preferences must be accessed. The search providers may be accessed through Options>Preferences>Advanced>UI Extras, but the easiest access is to choose Manage Search Providers through the drop down menu next to the search box. This will take you directly to the section to add or delete search providers.
You will then see the below listing.
My suggestion is to delete all of those and copy and paste the below torrent search sites in.
When finished, press OK on the Preferences screen. Where available, I have used https links.
µTorrent will get you to the site, but to use the site effectively to get the clean, real and well seeded torrent that you want,
you need to use the features of the torrent search site that you are using. (Try saying all that when your drunk lol)
Below is a list of all Search Engines to Copy & Paste into “Managing Search Providers”
(Copy these in exactly as they are written for them to work correctly)
EZTV, which is on the list at Searching for Torrents, can not be added to µTorrent’s search as far as I can tell.
After you have done this, you can check back at the search box to see if all the torrent search sites have been added in.
Your search provider listing should then look as in the image below
You can add many search providers into UTorrent search as you like as long as
their website supports the features here is how to add various other search providers.
To add your own torrent search site, you go to the site, do a search, delete the search term from the address bar,
then copy the address your left with, Now here’s the part most people miss out and complain it doesn’t work.
Between the names there is a BAR called a Pipe! it looks like | <– to get this pipe it’s Shift + on the keyboard
Make sure you always add this pipe before the website search url so another example below just to make sure.
http://kat.ph i did a search for debian it give me the following address http://kat.ph/usearch/debian/
So i remove debain from the address bar so it just becomes http://kat.ph/usearch/?q=
In UTorrent or any torrent client you copy in A name so KAT if you like then the pipe |
After the pipe | <– you then put in http://kat.ph/usearch/?q=
So it looks finally like KAT | http://kat.ph/usearch/?q=
Each website is completely different so it’s going to be a matter of trial and error until you get it right
but thats the fun of learning 🙂 so remember when adding these urls into clients make a copy of them
just incase your lose the settings file, so you can just quickly restore them back in with a quick paste.
This method using the Search feature inside the clients will work, Just you cannot access the http site
Unless you use one of the million proxy sites out there.. which is so simple to do take you seconds.
