This is a guide on how to add and download torrents automatically based on simple automation. This is especially handy if you want to download new releases of torrents on a regular basis.
What you will need
- Any Bitport premium account
Small technical skill
- Decide what you want to download
- First of all, you have to decide what you want to download on a regular basis. For example; podcasts or TV shows. It can be anything as long as it corresponds with our terms and conditions.
- Find a tracker
- You have to specify from where Bitport will be fetching information about new torrent releases. The easiest way is to find a tracker with a built-in RSS feed. Once a new torrent is added to a tracker, the information is broadcasted via RSS to all RSS subscribers that a new torrent is ready to be downloaded. This is how Bitport will obtain information about new torrents.
(for example, https://distrowatch.com/news/torrents.xml)
Set up conditions
- Set up conditions
- Login to Bitport and go to Settings > RSS
- Give a name to your new RSS feed, insert feed URL and select a folder where all torrents will be downloaded.
- Do not forget to add filters, which are crucial for your RSS feed to work properly. If you do not add filters, Bitport will download all new torrents from the RSS feed regardless of your preferences. You do not want that, believe us. (imagine downloading every Linux Distro that is there, it is so many.)
- Take a look at the name format of the torrents you want to regularly download from your tracker and create a filter so that similarly-formatted torrents are downloaded. Please pay close attention to the filters that you create. If they are created badly, you might automatically download every single torrent announced by RSS feed or no torrent at all.
