  1. Mikki-10, you misunderstood me. I was referring to this: http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/4998-what-does-the-stream-button-do
  2. 301 views, no answer so far. I'm still interested in this, if anyone's got a light...
  3. As some may know, I'm developing a system (based on the Sync API) to distribute mp4 video files over computers inside a few schools. As BitTorrent's clients have a feature to allow playing video while still downloading (known as "streaming"), are there any plans to have this feature on Sync?
  4. Hi, I'm trying to develop an application based on BitTorrent Sync, written in C++. My main difficulty at this time is to manage the btsync process, I was wondering if there's someone here who knows c++ and who could possibly help me with that. In fact I've already asked on StackOverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26624871/problems-developing-cross-platform-app-with-boost-process-0-5 As this question is intrinsically linked to Btsync, I though it would be a good idea to look for help here as well. So, if you think you can help, or know someone who can, please do! Thanks everyon
  5. I have developed a Windows Service by myself, which checks if btsync executable is running (in API mode), and starts it in case it isn't. I've done that in under an hour, and I'm a beginner C/C++ programmer. Just saying... Btw, I'm going to share the code soon, if anyone's interested
  6. This did sound a bit rude, but I'm following your advice.
  7. That's a great suggestion, and should be easy to implement! Not only the api key, but also the webui address and authentication data, are regarded as sensitive in my opinion. Of course, this approach wouldn't prevent someone with really advanced knowledges from getting that info, but it should do fine for average PC users as the ones I'm targetting. _______________ I'd also like to bring to light the following request from the community (turns out it's mine as well), hoping it gets more eyes onto: Run BTSync as a Windows service (http://forum.bittorrent.com/topic/29659-btsync-as-a-window
  8. In my opinion, this demand could/should be taken with a much greater priority than it is at this time. I do not mean to be rude (and I'm aware I'm not paying a penny for using this great software), but judging by the fact the original post dates from over a year ago, and by the fact it would take me (a rather beginner software developer) to code this functionality in C++ and deploy it in under a week, I can't help but thinking this project lacks some better management. And that's my 2 cents, which I hope are taken as a constructive criticism. Edit: If it adds, I'm developing a software f
  9. Hi everyone, Is it possible to set a different speed limit to LAN transfers than the one set in download_limit and upload_limit? I know there is rate_limit_local_peers (as described here, which defaults to 0), but it's not quite what I want. Thanks!
  10. Out of curiosity, what's the purpose of the API key? Or rather, how is it validated? If it's validation depends on connecting to a main bittorrent.com server, my implementation won't work if I'm using in a LAN-only environment with no external internet access. Any clarification on this is welcome.
  11. Also, make sure the UPnP service is running on Window, and the computers are using the same subnet mask.
  12. Thank you for sharing!
  13. I'm looking to build an updater for a multimedia application (I work for a school). This updater will be responsible to sync video files across multiple computers, which means it must be installed on all of them. Thus, I'm also interested in this question... What can I do to prevent the users from being able to see the API key?
