Torrent tools for Linux

Filed under
Software

In this article, we’ve put together a short list of torrent tools available to make your torrenting experience more interesting.

1. Torrent Episode Downloader - a smart tool for using BitTorrent to automatically download the newest episodes of TV shows that you choose. It has built-in support for “24″, “Lost”, “The Simpsons”, “South Park”, and many more. You can also define new shows to download. It checks feeds from TorrentReactor, Mininova, TVRSS, The PirateBay, Mr. Twig, Isohunt, and MyBittorrent for new episodes of TV shows.

2. Torrent Pouncer - an automatic torrent downloader for periodic releases of TV shows, series, and similar. Contrary to popular RSS-based torrent downloaders, it searches various torrent search engines like Mininova and Pirate Bay. For user convenience, it keeps databases of downloaded torrents and associates them with shows and season and episode numbers.

3. TorrentSniff
