Thread: What.cd with a seedbox?

  1. #1
    I've just bought a seedbox.
    It's running TorrentFlux 2.4.

    I can download from What.cd with great speed, but when I go to seed even the most popular torrents on the site I can only ever get 1 or 2 peers and a speed sub 10kb/s.

    If I try a public torrent, I get an awesome upload speed.
    Halp?

    My experience is that everything there is so incredibly well seeded and has virtually no leechers. If there's not many wanting to download the file then you won't get high speeds.

    I haven't set it up myself yet, but it was suggested to me that if you want to build ratio with a seedbox, a good way is to set it up so your seedbox downloads via RSS the scene torrents as soon as they pop up.

    If a torrent is fairly old on What but "appears" popular then 99% of the leechers are in fact "partial seeders". Have you tried jumping on a popular torrent when it's still new?

    seedboxes are nearly useless at sites like what.cd and waffles.

    I often get ~5gb upload on the comic packs and flac albums. I sort by most leechers and they pick a torrent that is 500mb+, 12hrs or less old, 1 seeder. i often get 3-5x ratios on these. i have been on what for 4 months with a seedbox, rotating torrents 1-2x a day and got about 90gb upload(vs 5tb to other sites) so def harder but doable

    Thanks for the tips.
    I'll try them out.

    Also, after I leave TorrentFlux for a while, say 15 minutes, I come back and my torrents have stopped seeding.
    How do I stop that?
