About this app

Transmission is a powerful yet extremely lightweight and fast BitTorrent client. It has the features you want from a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web interface, peer exchange, magnet links, DHT, µTP, UPnP and NAT-PMP port forwarding, webseed support, tracker editing, global and per-torrent speed limits, and more.

This application is a port of the Transmission daemon for Android complemented with the following features:

⚫ Manage downloads directly from the application.
⚫ Multiple watch/download directories.
⚫ Support for HTTP(S)/SOCKS proxy.
⚫ WiFi/Ethernet mode to save on mobile data.
⚫ Allowed WiFi SSIDs - if configured, the service is running only if connected to the specified networks.
⚫ Keep CPU/WiFi awake to complete all downloads before the device goes to sleep.
⚫ Sequential download allows playing media files while downloading.
⚫ Open .torrent files or torrent/magnet URLs and stream the selected files to a media player.
⚫ Builtin UPnP MediaServer. Download media files to a phone/tablet/TV-box and watch on a TV or another UPnP compatible media player connected to the same network.
⚫ M3U playlists for all torrents/folders containing audio/video files. To get the playlist URL - long click on the play icon.
⚫ Alternative web interface - Transmission Web Control

The daemon is running as a background service. To communicate with the daemon remotely you may either use the built-in WEB interface or any Transmission remote of choice.

For more details please refer to the official site of the Transmission Project - https://transmissionbt.com .

Known issues and limitations:

⚫ The daemon may hang for a few minutes when preallocating space for large files. See details here - https://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1753. To avoid this issue it's recommended to use a Linux native file system, for example ext4. Migration to NTFS may also help, but it depends on the system.
⚫ The "Allowed WiFi SSIDs" feature requires the location permissions to be granted, otherwise the application will not be able to get the WiFi SSID.

It's an excellent torrent client and works beautifully. However, always, when I go to a website, click the torrent link I require, and open it with transmission, the app opens, and I then click "open" on the torrent file, it appears to not be able to open it. BUT, found (till this bug is fixed, ever?) that I need only close, then re-open transmission, and un-pause the relevant torrent. Otherwise it is EXCELLENT

You need to click download, but not open. The open option could be used, for example, to watch video, while downloading.

I used to use Transmission on my Linux system since even today it's the default torrent client for many distros and is preinstalled. However quality wise the clients hasn't improved much. And this Android version is not something I would recommend. Nowadays most torrent sites rely on magnet links. The Android version appears to struggle with magnet links immensely and I haven't had a single instance when it worked right away. Normally I have to retry over and over again regardless of whether I am using LTE, WiFi or what not type of network. With your typical torrent files it works without a problem. In terms of UI I never liked the clear difference there is between the client's standard UI and the web-based on - plain lack of consistency. REPLY to comment to my review: Enabling proxy is something I don't need (and should not be needed). If I use qbittorent on my desktop to save the magnet link as a torrent file and transfer it to my phone, Transmission works with it as expected.

I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong here, but on android TV: * Launch on boot does not work. Always comes up unchecked after a reboot * Not exactly remote control friendly. Selection is not highlighted (seems to only affect the configuration tab) , you must go completely down and then back up again before your selection gets highlighted. * On the options menu, screen is stretched well enough you cant see the options because it stretches beyond the boundary of the screen. As this is still on its infancy, Im willing to give this a chance and give it 4 stars. Excellent job!! p.s. Location & storage permissions are activated for the app.
