Installation

Install a stable version:

pip install django-torrent-stream

pip install -e git://github.com/adw0rd/django-torrent-stream.git#egg=torrent_stream

Add to settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'torrent_stream'
)

TORRENT_STREAM_AFFILIATE_KEY = "<HASH>"
TORRENT_STREAM_ZONE_ID = <DIGIT>

# You can specify size of player
TORRENT_STREAM_PLAYER = {
    'width': '650px',
    'height': '342px',
}

These KEY and ID you can get on a page http://acestream.net/affiliate/

Usage

For example, you have a model Torrent:

class Torrent(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=300, blank=True)
    content = models.FileField(upload_to="torrents/torrents", blank=True)

You can display the button, when clicked, will be available to the player:

{% load torrent_stream %}
{% torrent_stream_button torrent.filename %}

Or you can display a player at once:

{% load torrent_stream %}
{% torrent_stream_player torrent.filename %}

How to get CONTENT_ID

Sometimes you need to get CONTENT_ID, you can do so:

from app.models import Torrent
from torrent_stream.helpers import get_content_id

torrent_obj = Torrent.objects.get(pk=42)

# Enough to transmit the content of the torrent file
content_id = get_content_id(torrent_obj.content.read())

# Or you can also pass the name of the torrent, and the duration to display the data in the player
content_id = get_content_id(torrent_obj.content.read(), torrent_obj.name, duration_in_seconds)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
