Got my raspberry pi yesterday, installed latest openelec and the addon works great ! A bit slower then on my laptop but that was expected.

+1 for this. I won't be using this add-on until this is a feature.

Great addon but I am getting playback failed messages when trying to stream something from EZTV. I have talked to some other people who also use this plugin and the same thing happens for them too. It doesn't happen all the time but some streams will start to download then fail while others work great.

I have also tested to make sure the file is not corrupted by downloading it directly from EZTV.it and opening it in xbmc.

To reproduce the error you can try Suits.S03E11. I would say with my experience about 1/3 of eztv on XBMCTorrent causes this error.

Here is my log. Playback failed message on line 2961.

Hi! First I want to say that this is an amazing plugin for XBMC and I thank the programmer(s) a lot. For me it works very good, but I have one question. Is it possible to change the port that is used to download the torrents?

Any assistance with finding out the directory where the files get downloaded to? I'm using openelec 3.2.4 on RPi. My sd card seems to be decreasing in storage. I didn't give it a download path nor enabled keep files. I'd appreciate any help to get rid of these files. Thanks!

I just put XBMC on my new Amazon Fire TV, and can't figure out how to install XBMCtorrent. The usb port on the Amazon Fire TV doesn't connect with portable drives.

I'm going crazy. Whatever I try to download now is automatically 'queued' and never downloads. I don't know how/where/when to queue stuff. I have never seen any queue in the add-on. Meanwhile I keep seeing mentions of a queue feature in various places online, with no explanation of how to access or use it. Someone help me, please!

Hey all,
I spent a while to understand why this addon didn't work and finally found that kaspersky consider torrent2http.exe as a trojan.
I was able to see the list of film but wasn't able to download them.
Maybe it will help some of you.

I will like to know if you or somebody had been tested xbmctorrent with Amazon Fire TV (running XBMC)? If so this will be huge... Fire OS is based on KITKAT (4.4.2) and XBMC is running already as a sideload app.

Somebody doing this?

I installed it on my friends Amazon Fire TV, because he didn't have the technical knowledge to install it. I tested it out for a minute or two on two different videos and it worked well. However, he is now saying that when he tried to run a video off XBMCtorrent, it restarts the Amazon Fire TV. Not sure what the issue is. Perhaps the Amazon Fire TV's partitioning isn't setup for XBMCtorrent? 1Channel is still working for him, so I'm not sure how to identify the issue

This addon doesn't seems to work for me. When I select something to watch, it stays on downloading metadata. I already tried to disable my antivirus and firewall, but it changed nothing. I can download torrents just fine on my PC, don't know what's wrong with this addon.

I think i stumbled on a bug today... I was testing raspmc for my raspberry pi (amber skin).
When i set protocol encryption to forced either the torrent streams with sound but no picture (mostly with sd) or the torrent streams 1second and goes back to the menu (mostly with hd).
When i set encryption to enabled the same torrent streams fine.
I've tried this with different torrents from eztv and yify.
Not a big thing but i thought i'd mention it.
