there are many boards out, which provide both, ed2k links and torrent links for the same file
e.g. the next future board
So users can choose. this is good.
The problem only exists for releasers.
They need to release in torrent, but then they personally have to seed.
with shareaza and edonkey the edonkey network gets support for torrents and edonkey.
Releasers can include the ed2k hash into the torrents with torrentmakers azureus and www.torrentaid.com
Here the question is, if it would not be good for the whole system, to seed torrents out of edonkey and emuel network.
This means: emule shoudl NOT download from bittorrent, but it would be good to be backward compatible.
e.g. i have created a torrent with torrentaid.com
the ed2k hash of the file inside the torrent are available.
Why is emuel not able to handle them ?
Then we could just parse torrents into emule, emule is strapping off the given ed2k links out of the torrent and then downloads each file individually over ed2k.
This would mean as well, that a multifile collection could be made with www.torrentaid.com integrate inside emule and then we do not need rar for cd-albums, and the individual files are better spread instead of the rar.
torrentfiles with given ed2k hash could be handled with emule and downloaded,
this would be a nice feature to download al torrents as well in emuel over the ed2k protocol.
this would lead to a standard, that all torrents are made with the ed2k hash inside,
this is as well needed to stick both media together, torrent released media is then as well available in emule, and hybrid clients could seed the tracker then as well, e,g. in shareaza.
this is a way to combine both networks and emule does not need the torrent protocol, but it would be handy to be able to handle the .torrent files to download the files inside , if there is the ed2k hash provided.
This should be easily to strap out of the torrent, and maybe the www.torrentaid,com could added as a tool to the emuel installer to the core, then we can make cd-albums, include the ed2k hash and release torrent files, wich are not distributed over a tracker, but over emule,
And if somone wants to make a highspeed release, then he can additiionally set up one.
But this woudl lead to emule releasing as default by torrents, which are used instead of rar, if it makes sense to have each audio file as well individually on the net, or all 40 captain future morvies. They do not need to be rared in one zip.
Zips coudl be then as well be into a torrent, if it is really a rar like isntallers etc.
so Please, I request soon to have a download box for torrents, which provide the ed2k links and download then over ed2k
This woudl restructure all the torrent boards, they would say: use the emuel torrent creator (wich is the free code of www.torrentaid.com in emule) to create torrents.
If the tracker is down, then just download the torrent in emule, and use the ed2k protocol. So torrents, which are dead after 3 weeks, will EVER AND EVER be loadable in emule. This has potentials !
for all board and all torrents, so emuel just need to handle torrent files and have a default torrentmaker. emule torrents then are the new standard. So please include www.torrentaid.com
