qBittorrent - An advanced bittorrent client in C++ / Qt4

RSS auto downloader only works with certain feeds?

Asked by Drew on 2011-02-27

I can get the RSS downloader to work with

http://www.ezrss.it/feed/

but not

http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/37039456.rss

Is there a reason - something I am doing or can correct?

I am using 2.6.6

Thanks!

The reason is simply, the second RSS feed is not properly formatted for automated downloading.

Here is what an item looks like:
<item>
    <title>eztv_it: Cops S23E16 HDTV XVID-BAJSKORV [eztv] - http://re.zoink.it/4d69abaf</title>

  </item>

Inside the <link> item, there should be a link to the torrent instead of a link to a Web page. Instead, the download link is included in the <title> and <description> element which is uncommon.

See for ezrss:
                  <item>
   <title><![CDATA[Cops 23x16 [HDTV - BAJSKORV]]]></title>
   <link>http://torrent.zoink.it/Cops.S23E16.HDTV.XVID-BAJSKORV.[eztv].torrent</link>

The link actually points to a torrent, link in most Bittorrent RSS feeds.

Can you help with this problem?
