Alright, let's settle this once and for all. Which is better? Pros, cons of each?
>>
Neither is better because they are essentially the same.

heres the patrician choice
>>
>>78807182
Deluge: Shit UI, its default classic mode is buggy (switch to daemon if you don't want it using 5% CPU doing nothing), but at least it can torrent.
qBit: UI that attempts to copy the God-tier uTorrent 2.2.1 but doesn't quite manage. Buggy as hell and that looks to never, ever change. Doesn't connect very well. Some private trackers are looking to ban it for low performance and stat issues.

Just use uTorrent 2.2.1.

Just use Transmission
>>
>>78807182
transmission

but from those two qBittorrent
>>
>>78807182
The last time I tried it years ago, Deluge couldn't handle Japanese filenames properly, and I think it forgot window size when restoring from tray. Maybe they've fixed it now, I dunno. QB was the least-bad uT alternative, and I've stuck with it.

If you use GTK, Deluge
If you usd QT, qBittorrent

If you use windows, neither will match your theme so use either cause they both look like shit.
>>
>>78809049
QB has built in theming with stylesheets
https://github.com/jagannatharjun/qbt-theme
It's too bad they all look even worse than default

Forget looks, how about functionality:

Does Deluge have any features qBittorrent lacks?

Ok Transmission chads, how do you get the daemon to unrar shit upon completion?
>>
>>78810876
qbittorrent - everything C++, python only used for search plugins
qdeluge - only libtorrent is C++, everything else is python

>>78810970
>the webinterface sucks, tough.
This is the main reason to prefer qbittorrent, qbittorrent-nox is the only acceptable replacement for rtorrent+rutorrent
(transmission-daemon is fine too if you don't share many torrents)

The last time I tried it you couldn't add multiple .torrents at once and you couldn't disable or whitelist ips for the stupid authentication, so it belongs in the trash.
>>
>>78811113
the multiple torrent thing kinda sucks, but why would you want to back-/whitelist ips?

To allow all local IPs access to the webinterface without authentication

why is that? i heard transmission-daemon is the only client that can handle tens of thousands of torrents

Deluge daemon, and *arr projects to interact with it. Who manually searches and downloads a torrent anymore?
>>
>>78808978
2.2.1 is before it was closed source you dingleberry eating moron
>>
>>78811860
>Who manually searches and downloads a torrent anymore?
how else would you do it? it's not like it can read my mind and know which movie i want to watch
>>
>>78811873
post the source code then
>>
>>78812008
Pulsarr is a browser extension that lets you just browse IMDB and click "download it for me and then put it in a nice folder and download the subitles and coverart" - there's also one that automatically downloads new episodes of TV shows as they come out, same principle.
>>
>>78812049
no u
>>
>>78812065
i can't, because uTorrent has always been closed source
>>
>>78812054
so instead of typing in the movie title on a torrent site and hitting download i have to type it in on imdb and hit download?
for tv shows i just use rss and autodl-irssi

Does your torrent site recommend similar movies? Hyperlink director and actor names? Torrent search indexing is also the worst.

Been using qb v 3.3 for about 5 years, never had any problems.
But then again, I don't know what the fuck you guys do with your torrent clients. All I do is browse tracker, click on torrent link, open in qb, download the files. Always works, never failed in these 5 years.
No reason to update or change anything.

What's the appeal of transmission? Why do so many people like it?

>>78816519
It comes bundled with basic Linux distros like pop and just werks
There's nothing more minimal than not fixing what isn't broken

>>78818893
Show me the study?
Which one does the least?
>>
>>78818893
Werks on my machine, getting maybe a bit more disk activity than rtorrent and 44% cache hit with those settings
Advanced settings > Libtorrent:
Increase cache, increase cache lifetime
Enable os cache, read/write coalesce, segment affinity, upload suggestion


>>78818935
rtorrent uses mmap which means the kernel should do all the work, but nobody really knows what it's doing since there is a long standing issue https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/issues/443
libtorrent clients should have a pretty complete cache system
transmission scheduling is kind of dumb, so it's better to disable uTP otherwise it jump from torrent to torrent compared to the more stable TCP behavior.

Sonarr/Radarr weighs all the various listings from the active indexer/trackers and selects the best. Most times this is just the top seeded one anyway.

I started using both to see if deluge got better after a few years of dev time. but it seems to be inferior when it comes to actually connecting to peers so i get worse speeds with the same settings.

I have retired deluge to porn duty while qbittorrent get the important things. qbit torrent has been perfect since i switched over like 5 years ago.

That search feature is tough to beat and they seem to have fixed their RSS problems, that is great for folk like me that use RSS to download shit on a weekly basis from RARBG.to or Nyaa.si.

I swear these programs take years to adopt good requests I give and when they do they instantly become better and widely adopted and recognized.
>>
>>78820208
Only the UI is in Python numbnuts. They both use libtorrent under the hood.

What makes qbittorrent the only good torrent client if it just uses libtorrent rastebar? what's stopping another person from simply making a better gui? is it too hard to make a gui application out of libtorrent rastebar? just curious
