Seeding same show on two sites

Is it possible to upload the same set of files both here and at the Dime, instead of taking up HDD space by having two copies of the file sets, one for here and one for there?

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

I assume you mean simultaneously?

I've done it before. it works fine, as long as you pay attention to what you are doing.

1) get the files like you want them in a folder.
2) Do not change ANYTHING (file names, content, text file - NOTHING)
3) see #2
4) hash your torrent file for TTD, place the file outside the folder (one back / up)
5) hash your torrent file for Dime, place the file outside the folder (one back / up)
6) see #2
7) see #2 again


Start your torrents one at a time. Let the first one hash out to a seed (100%) before starting the next one.


Now, just because you can do something, it doesn't mean you should. Unless you have some huge pipe like FIOS, it's better for the peers if you seed one completely before starting the next one.

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

I agree, that my 1Mbps upload may not be best suited for seeding two initial torrents simultaneously, but I was just curious. The reason is that I like to hook folks up at DIME and here at the sime time when I start a torrent of one of my own recordings...
Thanks James, and sorry about uploading the not-allowed Scofield yesterday!

You don't need to make a multi-tracker .torrent file to do this. You make two separate .torrent files. They just look in the same directory for the data. It works fine with Dime.

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

utorrent can handle multiple trackers simultaneously on a single torrent. I've done it multiple times, bridging etree, ttd & dime. Create seperate torrents & upload them, then run them in utorrent, the first one will ask you to point to a directory, after that it will just ask if you want to add the tracker to the active torrent.

Success.

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

the only problem is that dime used MD5 files, TTD doesn't want Md5 files on audio. so you have to make 2 seperate torrents, one with MD5 for dime and one ST5 for TTD

No, you don't. We don't disallow MD5 files; we just don't consider them as filling the checkfile requirement.

One directory. Include an MD5, and an ffp or ST5.

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

Since when does Dime request md5? I've never created them once for Dime. Is this something new? I've always used ffp.

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

They require one or the other. Just like us requiring ST5 or ffp.

This is incorrect. I upload to DIME all the time and they require a .ffp file OR an MD5 file.

One thing that is stupid about their .ffp requirement is that you have to rename your fingerprint .txt file that FLAC creates for you to .ffp otherwise they block the upload. Talk about shitty programmers over there...

Re: Seeding same show on two sites

.ffp is automatically registered to TLH upon installation (winders only I suppose); which is probably why they have that prerequisite. There are many different tools, i still find myself using mkwact on occasion.
