I promise I searched the forums, but all the screenies seem to be from an older version of Tribler, the new interface is apparently different.
I drop the files in my channel and the only option is to download. I try downloading and it searches forever for the meta data. I drop a bittorrent file containing the seed into the destination folder and no luck. I drop the literal file I’m trying to seed into the folder and still no luck.
I stop, restart, I even tried Seeding on bit torrent to get the file started. Still Tribler insists that there’s no meta data to be had.
What do you want from me Tribler?!?!
EDIT: Hours later it suddenly downloaded and began seeding. I know not what dark magics caused this. But then I played with the browse button and found another-another way.
For future confused people:
