uTorrent, TorrentFlux & wTorrent -Comparison of Seedbox Uls

Postby Overnet User » Thu Jul 16, 2009 7:05 am

Shopping for a seedbox provider? These six service/server specs [number of users per server; storage/drivespace; shared resources/RAM; # of active torrents; throughput limit; connection speed] are significant criteria to consider before making a selection. However, few realize that the UI (BT interface & client) of the seedbox is equally as important and should be also be factored into the equation. For example; when compared to TorrentFlux, uTorrent ordinarily offers the best speeds overall, but is lacking in features. Then there’s wTorrent GUI for rTorrent which uses very little resources, but doesn’t refresh the torrent stats. Here we delve into the three most popular seedbox UIs (TorrentFlux-b4rt, uTorrent WebUI and wTorrent) and take a look at the advantages & disadvantages for each.

The most Comprehensive List of Seedbox info on the web now (this thread)

A forum dedicated to seedboxes: Seedbox Discussion

1 10 Really Cheap Seedboxes That Anyone Can Afford

2 Complete List Of Torrent Seedbox Services - Part I

3 Complete List Of Torrent Seedbox Services - Part ii

4 Complete List Of Torrent Seedbox Services - Part iii

This is likely the most comprehensive assembly of torrent-ready seedbox companies and services you will find on the interwebs. Whether you’re looking for a ready-to-go dedicated or shared seedbox with TorrentFlux, uTorrent WebUI, or even rtorrent - you’ll find a solution here. There are pros and cons to what each provider offers, in which we try to address - many packages come with unlimited torrents, although the tradeoff is a monthly bandwidth usage cap. Others have limits on the number of active torrents, but the bandwidth throughput is uncapped/unmetered.

Due to WordPress limitations, we needed to break this article down into three distinct pages. 40 providers in all, the first 20 seedbox providers are located below, while the other 20 are located here.

Dedicated do-it-yourself seedbox providers (such as OVH and Leaseweb) are not included in this list - see our Dedibox & VPS Seedbox article for a list of such providers. Providers listed here are typically known as resellers of the dedicated services.



This seedbox looks good too & it has pg2 support but beware of their policy PFCorner.EU SEEDBOXES below
Public torrents: we don't like them! Remove them from the WebUI as soon download has finished!

a company whose business model is based on profiting from someone else's creative work, and blocks public trackers? these people sound more like the copyright cartel than filesharers to me. why would you promote them?

I only listed this site above for those that like the whole private sharing in private sites. IMO, not everyone likes public sites so to say that a company is bad for not allowing public sharing is strange. What if that person has lots of private accounts and doesn't like using public sites?

Here is an update to this thread:

A Comparison of Three rTorrent Seedbox Web Frontends

More and more seedbox providers are beginning to switch over to rTorrent/libTorrent as their offered BitTorrent client - and for good reason: rTorrent is natively Linux-based so it’s easy on resources; it’s open-source (new UIs and plugins can be developed); and it’s a whitelisted BT client on just about every private tracker. TorrentFlux is bloated and has a high learning curve, and uTorrent WebUI is nothing more than an afterthought with minimal features. rTorrent is taking over the seedbox world, thanks in large part to three popular rTorrent web front-ends — ruTorrent, wTorrent and rtGui.

it's not about public vs. private. it's about people profiting from the creative works of others, and setting rules on who can and cannot access those works. why is this ok for these people, who have no legal rights to the material in question, but wrong for the **AA, who DO?

The seedbox providers are exactly that- providers. They provide the service & can say that they like one thing or another. If one doesn't like their policy & sees their policy conflicting with individual ideas, whomever can choose another service provider if they wish. Its not like their are not a lot of other options.

As for what the seedbox has on it: its up to the user. This is the same with the upload sites such as http://www.rapidshare.com . The users upload the files, not the providers. You are paying for (or can use free feature) to get a service. As for the upload sites, a paid account is recommended to get maximum benefits. This is the same thing with a seedbox. Whether you put creative contents files on the seedbox or the upload sites, it is the user that does this. Not the provider. The provider is simply providing a service.

LMAO. ya, i'm sure all these people are spending money on seedboxes and VPNs to transfer linux distros.

:roll:

but i think you've missed my point. here we have two commercial businesses - each restricts access to media/information/whatever you want to call it. each has their own rules about who is or is not entitled to access this stuff, and how they can or cannot access it. why is that censorship when one group does it, but acceptable and praiseworthy when the other one does?
