I tried out the 0.8 preview release of BlogTorrent today. Pretty interesting, but I couldn’t get it to work. Maybe it works better on the uninitiated, but I found myself confused and fighting with their upload tool and trying to figure out if it wanted torrent files from me or if it was going to make them itself and then how to get that over into seeding the files. I assume there’ll be better documentation eventually or I’m just a dummy.

I had a lot more success with Ryan’s WPBT Bittorrent tracker for WordPress. Easy to install and it integrates into the WordPress user system. It worked first try for me, though you have to use other utilities to make your .torrents and seed them. It doesn’t make Bittorrent seeding a point and click experience, but it made it a hell of a lot easier, which is good enough for me.

hey brad, this is nick from downhill battle. saw this blog entry on technorati and it prompted me to add a little clarifying text on the demo tracker that we’re running for blog torrent. we’re definitely thinking about ways to make things simpler and more clear, so i hope that as we keep working there will be less problems like this. but already i think this is the easiest way for websites to publish torrents.

My tracker doesn’t help with seeding, which BlogTorrent tries to do with their own client if I understand correctly.

Mine makes the tracking part easy but that’s it. Writing the client side is over my head.
