Feature Request regarding Swarm.

Hello Devs,

I would really be glad if your team added the feature of Swarm Merging to Tixati, I wanted this feature since a long time.

Tixati will become the ultimate client.

I will be more happy than anyone to see it come true.

Thanks a lot.

Tixati has had some merge functionality for a couple years now.

It might not be fully automagic - yet - but it does work for some things.

Having a database of files with related size and hash infos would make it easier to maintain collections that might be updated from time to time, to eliminate duplication of files already in one's library.

Swarm merging is a feature of Vuze. It sounds useful, this would help me numerous times.
Vuze automatically detects when two or more of your incomplete downloads share one or more files of identical size and will attempt to merge the torrent swarms to download the file faster or, possibly, complete an existing file with bad availability.

I agree it could be very useful, more than it is, if some more automation was added.

My idea would be to catalog all a users media, shared or not and then compare file hashes to all existing. This would avoid waste of time and BW downloading duplicates.  And by mating files across torrents would benefit from this functionality too.

I think Tixati has the base function down, since it can merge multiple torrents into a common folder and then seed them all from it, eliminating file duplication. A little more automagic might do the trick.
