#1092 new feature-request

Add torrents with different hashes but identical files

Reported by: Chronos Owned by: andar
Priority: major Milestone: Future
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: hash Cc: magwe


I miss a function that there are different sites, and i would download one torrent from these sites, but the hash is not the same, but the files are. I would like to download the files from different sources, with different torrent's(hashes).

It would be nice to have this function in Deluge, as this is the most usable torrent client on Linux.

I just added a new ticket (1932) that is pretty much a duplicate of this one. The description for that ticket is as follows:

share pieces among torrents

Often the same files are available in multiple torrents and if you realize that you have bet on the wrong horse and need to switch to a different torrent to achieve better speed the data downloaded for the first torrent is wasted.

If these torrets have pieces lists containing common piece hashes the data for those shared pieces should be available to all torrents sharing the same pieces.
