Torrents are Stalled when added #11320
Please provide the following information
qBittorrent version and Operating System
QB 4.1.8, Linux 16.04 4.19
If on linux, libtorrent-rasterbar and Qt version
What is the problem
Torrents in most cases go into Stalled mode (no seeds or peers) and in most cases will stay there not doing anything. Some seem to catch and download while others sit there forever. The others that are stalled, if I do a right click and forced announce it will start the download within 3 seconds and complete but I've already lost ratio on these ones. I'm grabbing torrents from a watch folder using autodl-irssi. Using the RSS for some other torrents that seems to work ok without a hitch or Stalled status but these are a lot fewer in numbers. Now most sites will post in IRC the second they hit and may not have seeders on them yet so in the autodl-irssi I've added a delay timer of 5 secs which seems to cut the Stalled ones in half and give the uploader bots time to load and start feeding a torrent.
What is the expected behavior
Anything in Stalled mode should be given high priority and a forced announce every x seconds
Steps to reproduce
Extra info(if any)
Same here (qBitTorrent-nox 4.1.6 within a FreeBSD jail).
Some torrents in stalled and other in "downloading metadata", and all trackers in "not working" status.
No action make them start to download, although I know that there are a lot of seeders.
Any news on this?
You may want to dig further into why the trackers are showing "not working" like in proper ports, settings allowed per site and they don't have any blocks on your client version.
