Failed to add torrent. The retrieved content is not a valid torrent file

#1

Just installed quickbox on a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 on a dedicated server. When I try to add a torrent using a browser add-on or adding the URL directly to Rutorrent and/or Deluge I get an error stating the torrent is invalid. Any idea how to correct this?

Deluge error: Not a valid torrent (pop-up)
Rutorrent error in log: Failed to add torrent. The retrieved content is not a valid torrent file.

Hello, can you give me an example of your link ?
I don’t have any problem with rarbg.

For example with this file :
https://rarbgaccessed.org/torrent/s4hgedjfrbi1mu57yolw3pa6k92tv8zxnqcli5junk783b1fgxshez9awm4rvt62pdoqyc

I put in rutorrent this link : https://rarbgaccessed.org/download.php?id=s4hgedjfrbi1mu57yolw3pa6k92tv8zxnqcli5junk783b1fgxshez9awm4rvt62pdoqyc&f=Ubuntu%2011%2010%20Install%20Box-[rarbg.to].torrent

I removed the identifying words of the torrent so this is just an example. It wont work.

I just tried the link you provided and i was able to add it using the firefox extension and by manually adding the torrent url to rutorrent.


#5

That’s strange, if you add this torrent by doing drag and drop, that work ?


#6

I get this error. I’m using the latest Firefox browser.

Plugin filedrop: Your browser does not support HTML5 file uploads. Plugin was disabled.


#7

Do you have the same problem with chrome ?
Firefox support for a long time the HTML5 so that’s strange…

Just to try, i don’t think that will change something but can you use another theme in rutorrent ?


#8

Installed Chrome and tried it on that. Still no go. Also changed the theme to a few different styles and no luck.


#9

Tried this from the servers x2go desktop and still getting the same error message. Can’t figure out what it may be. Are there any permission issues that can cause this?
