Copying magnet link problems frostwire to tribler


I have a bug/problem whereby I use frostwire to search for torrents, copy a magnet link from frostwire, and most of the time when I try to paste this magnet link into tribler to download a file, the download will not start. I’m not sure if the magnet copied from frostwire is incorrect or not… I use frostwire to search because the search in tribler is quite limited.

help please.


You meant the download gets added but it never fetches the torrent from the DHT?


No i mean the magnet that I copy, when I paste it into Tribler looks like this:


And then when I click the add button, the button is unresponsive.

Why is this? Is there anything I can do to resolve this problem?


@shnookface that magnet link appears to be invalid (the infohash should be 40 characters). Please try a different magnet link and see whether its works for you.
