hello,

i just love your service Wink
just two suggestions:
 - dropbox integration (just place torrents in one dir and let it download with bitfetch)
 - dropbox: place completed files in dropbox


regards
flower

Thanks!

I think that Dropbox integration goes against the privacy oriented nature of this service. Dropbox API access is not open to everyone - you have to apply for it and get approved. I also don't see the point of watching a dropbox directory for .torrent files, since you can upload them to bitfetch just by clicking a button and they are typically <50kb anyway. Magnet links beat all other methods for convenience though, all it takes is a copy/paste.

I will definitely be adding multiple file upload support (ctrl + clicking multiple files) for browsers that support it.

ok, you're right regarding dropbox integration.

what about an api instead?

if often use your site from work to add new torrents, and i would love if my homeserver would download them after bitfetch has finished them (so i can use them as soon as i get home).

You can already do that. Click on Settings (top right) and enable Automatic Browser Downloads.

It will work on Chrome (up to 2 files, any more than that and it will popup 'This website is attempting to download multiple files. Allow? Yes/No' to which you click Yes) while Firefox/IE/Safari will require changing of the default download action in the browser settings.

ha, awesome... about 20 minutes before I submitted a job.

Thanks for a great great service, btw. It's pretty much perfect.

I used Bitfetch yesterday and was very impressed with it. I was actually trying to find it via Google, but couldn't.

I think you might want to add some <meta> tags and verbatim text that at least says "bitcoin torrent download", or something like that. I'm sure it'd come up in the rankings pretty quickly.

Anyways, great job on the site :-).

I will be converting balances to gigabytes to remedy this.

Thanks. Indeed, I haven't done any SEO yet.

Just started my first download... very reasonable price that makes sense to use it... cheers!

However I have an improvement suggestion:  I added a torrent to see how much it would cost, but it did not tell me, just the size.  Also it got rid of the price so I had to open an incognito window and do math (math is hard Smiley ).  It would have been much nicer if it would show me what I needed to deposit to download it, especially now that I have a balance.

Other than that:  great UI!

You're right, since converting this to bytes was kind of an afterthought. I will add some sort of indicator for the amount of bitcoins you need to start a torrent.

REVIEW:

After using the system for a full 'cycle' I can say that I am SUPER IMPRESSED.

Not only is the system top notch in terms of usability and visual niceties, it WORKS.   It is simple and it is clear.   They also don't do anything stupid.  For example I started a download from my office then copied the ZIPed URL to my server at home and downloaded the result from there.

I will most certainly be using this service again and can't sing enough praise.

Downloads are hanging right now. Tried with direct .torrent links and magnet links. Undecided

EDIT: 3 out of 4 torrents have downloaded now; still waiting on the fourth one to start. Maybe running out of disk space?

Torrent client was stuck at 100% cpu.
