How to Auto-start torrents?

by shukero on 2013/10/14 08:15:29 PM    

I'd like to first point out that this is an AWESOME program and that if I would have known about it sooner, I would have jumped off of uTorrent years ago; anyway on to my question:

Whenever I hit a .torrent link/magnet link on a website, I have it set up to automatically go to tixati; but I would like to get rid of the "pop-up" window which wants me to "confirm" the starting of the torrent. I've looked all over the place and even in the "help" button, but it is un-clear to me where / what I must do to make this happen. Can someone explain this to me?

You can configure when this pop up appears in Tixati Settings > Behavior > Transfer loading priority/location prompt.

I've been to this pop-up many times; but I can't find the option to have the torrent "Auto-start" without the pop-up box. which checkbox / setting is this a part of?

On Behaviour page: disable "Activate main window when new transfers are loaded".
On Transfer loading priority/location prompt Configure window: disable "Created In Add Window Or Shell"

Thank you!

Thanks Pete!

I just switched to Tixati from uTorrent. I'm starting to dislike uTorrent - so much adware and crap.

Tixati seems really nice, and this configuration made it better!

I kept "Activate main window when new transfers are loaded" checked because it didn't seem that matter. I had to uncheck all items under "Conditions" in "Transfer loading priority/location prompt." Started fine when I uploaded a torrent to Dropbox and had Tixati start torrent in the specified folder.

Thanks Pete, this kills Utorrent.

Just my 2 cents... but how will Joe Average associate -disable "Created In Add Window Or Shell" with auto-start?

Just what I needed thank you, I also switched from uTorrent to Tixati.

Same here. uTorrent has had its day when they sold out to adware

Thank you so much, saved the day.

Thanks for this, old thread I know but info still very much needed. Tixati rox!!

Kubuntu 14.05. Tixati 2.25, auto-loading .torrents from directory definitely does not work in my case. Anyone managed to fix this?

Thank you!

For what it's worth, I wanted to auto-start torrents from a watched folder, so I unchecked the option "Created From Watched Folder" in the pop-up under "User Interface" -- "Behavior" -- "Transfer loading priority/location prompt" as well as disabling option "Activate main window when new transfers are loaded" on "User Interface -- "Behavior" page. This worked for me.

Just Disable the "From Watched folders" option in the submenu to get it working when loading from folders

Thanks for a great program. Very polished and efficient. Unfortunately I'm still having a problem getting V2.63 (running on the latest Windows 10 64bit) to autostart when I click on a magnet link.

I've tried all the suggestions in this thread but I still get the prompt "Open Tixati?"

Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Thanks for this suggestions - working fine for me, now :-)

Now another wish to the Tixati Team - auto-start torrents:

Normally I let Tixati run overnight (with my VPN provider active).

Sometimes the VPN tunnel breaks down and Tixati close down, and then I
have to restart Tixati in the morning.

What about a Tixati-deamon (small comsuming one) running in the background,
so if a VPN tunnel breaks down, the deamon starts Tixati up again when the
VPN tunnel is up again (in my case: TAP-Windows Adapter V9)

This function could be set on/off in Settings.

Just a suggestion :-)

Regards - Ordinary Guy...
