Adds torrents directly from a web browser.

Some browsers have addons available that can interact with bittorrent clients through a WebUI. This extension is compatible with ĀµTorrent.

Most of these addons have various settings for connecting to the WebUI:

  • The server address should begin with "http", not "https". Some addons have a setting for using SSL instead; this should be disabled.
  • The host or address should be 127.0.0.1 if baretorrent is running on the same computer as the browser. Leaving this field blank also works on some addons.
  • The default port should be 2999.
  • Username and password fields should be left blank.

This is an example for BitTorrent WebUI++ on Firefox and Remote Torrent Adder on Google Chrome:
