WebTorrent is a streaming torrent client for node.js and the browser. YEP, THAT'S RIGHT. THE BROWSER. It's written completely in JavaScript – the language of the web – so the same code works in both runtimes. In node.js, this module is a simple torrent client, using TCP and UDP to talk to other torrent clients. In the browser, WebTorrent uses WebRTC (data channels) for peer-to-peer transport. It can be used without browser plugins, extensions, or installations. It's Just JavaScript. Note: WebTorrent does not support UDP/TCP peers in browser.

            python showing this TypeError: string indices must be integers
            Asked 2021-Aug-03 at 04:31

            I'm running this python Code in Kali Terminal and facing this problem. I found this code in Github

            This script download movies from torrent and it uses WebTorrent API Once I used this script in windows it was working without any error but when I switch to kali linux and try to run this script I'm facing this error.

            I'm not very much familiar with python

            Here is my Code



            Answered 2021-Aug-03 at 04:31

            This API is down currently that's why it is returning {'message': 'API is Down!', 'status': False} as response instead of expected movie data. Which is the cause of the error.

            I am getting this error when trying to build a Clojurescript project with shadow-cljs. I've tried looking for syntax errors as described here but I can get the same the error with a single line and a single import although not all imports cause the same error.

            Answered 2021-Feb-22 at 06:57

            Based on the link in your first error message, it says to npm install whatever's missing.

            If you didn't run npm install, that by itself will install what's in your package.json.

            If that's not the issue, then npm i readable-stream may help.

            Using a single port for bittorrent-tracker server in Heroku
            Asked 2021-Feb-13 at 07:10

            I am trying to build/deploy a tracker server for use with P2P applications using the below code. It works fine locally, but when I deploy it to Heroku, the port bindings fail because only one port is allowed.

            Not long after asking this question, it occurred to me that I might not need express at all. It turns out that was correct.

            How to do lookups/get DHT data using the browser
            Asked 2021-Jan-19 at 12:21

            I have the following working in node.js to do a basic DHT put and get. I can later retrieve the same DHT by using only the get method and passing in the previously created infohash. What I would like to do next is look up that DHT in the browser, but I'm not having any success with browserification. Are there any libraries for the browser out there that can read DHT data by looking up an infohash?



            Answered 2021-Jan-19 at 12:21

            The bittorrent DHT requires plain UDP sockets to work. Currently there are no web APIs that provide that, thus it cannot be implemented in web pages.

            'private: true' and 'lsd: false' not recognised as valid torrent options, won't allow torrent to be converted to private. NodeJS | WebTorrent
            Asked 2020-Dec-13 at 18:10

            What version of this package are you using?



            What operating system, Node.js, and npm version? OS: Linux Lite 5 (64 bit)

            Node.js: 14.15.1

            npm: 6.14.8

            What happened?

            I normally initialised a client by following the docs. Like so:

            this.webTorrentClient = new WebTorrentHybrid({tracker: true, dht: true});

            However, I simply wanted to switch my torrent to private so that it won't publish to DHT, PEX and LSD. I specifically have a requirement to disable LSD. Again I followed the docs, added opts and put in the private flag like so:

            How to post an input filed value as a value for variable in javascript
            Asked 2020-Jun-25 at 14:48

            I am making a movie streaming platform, with the use of WebTorrent plugin, which will stream the whole movie without downloading it, user just needs to paste the torrent link or the same. So, I want to post the value of input field as the value for the variable. The value for the input field will be a link to the torrent file, for eg. "https://webtorrent.io/torrents/sintel.torrent". So what ever link has been posted in the input box, it should be posted as a value for the variable i.e. torrentId.

            Example: var torrentId = 'https://webtorrent.io/torrents/sintel.torrent'

            In the case for the above torrent file, the piece of code should look like the example mentioned above, so what I am trying to do here is, as soon as the user pastes a link to the torrent file, the value for the variable torrentId should be defined in the format as the example mentioned above, and the desired movie will be loaded, to be streamed on the go.

            Here is the snippet, without custom link functionality.
