Large torrent file support (over 64MB)

by Guest on 2021/07/13 03:07:18 PM    
Hello, would it be possible to add large torrent file support? For example in my scenario I have 64+ MB torrent file - as it has lots, very lots of files in there - and therefor I can't download the files using this torrent file - as it fails to read the metadata.

please post a link to that torrent or a magnet link to it, so it can be sent to the devs.

I can send the file in question in PM...

why is this limit even a thing in the first place if other torrent clients support said 64MB+ torrent file?

just post the magnet link or a link to the torrent file here so I can get it, it will not be posted publicly.

I'm not the topic starter but the following results in "Invalid file system in meta-file" when creating a new seed:
for i in {1..50000}; do printf "%05d\n" "$i" > $(printf "%05d--%040d.txt" "$i" "$i") & done
At exactly 50k files in a directory. 49999 files are OK. Procmon says all IO calls (File list enumeration and QueryOpen in particular) report a SUCCESS. There're no more accesses to that folder after QueryOpen on the last file. Windows 7 x64

Is this being fixed already or do you still need an example file?

We still need an example file. If this is happening to someone please post the magnet link or a link to the torrent file.

Here is a torrent file that comes in at 66.6 MB in my filesystem

I'd like to repeat the finding above about 50k files: if there're >50k files in a directory, Tixati will not be able to create a new torrent from that folder.
The shell code above works to replicate such a folder. Additionally I've tested it by copying a random source code folder 5 times, totalling:
find . -type f | wc -l -> 55422 files and
find . -type d | wc -l -> ~5407 folders
and Tixati can't handle that either: "Invalid file system in meta-file". However with only 46185 files and 27035 directories, Tixati creates such a torrent just fine.
Please note: importing a 50k file .torrent file created in qBittorent works fine and Tixati initializes it without issues (I did not test the actual transfer)

These issues have been fixed in v2.85.

From the News page:
raised limit for opening .torrent files to 200 MB
maximum files within single transfer limit raised to 2 million
fixed minor problems with peer metadata sync with very large transfers
maximum new transfer creation file count raised to 2 million

But keep in mind that loading large torrents, with many files will take a bit of time.

i am on v3.14 and I have a torrent that will not force recheck due to "file too large"
by Guest on 2022/12/19 04:41:36 PM    
how large a file/torrent are we talking about?
post a magnet link or a link to download the .torrent file here and the mod will send it to the devs.
what OS?

Your file may have gotten corrupted.
I did have that issue a couple of times.
