I haven't been able to find a definitive answer on what the "Download Directories" is on the uTorrent WebAPI. I wasn't able to find any Web API calls to specify a download directory and when I use the uTorrent Web API I want to be able to specify the folder they are being downloaded into.

Currently I just have them all start the download into a single folder, but I really don't like doing that. So I was looking at ways to accomplish this with the Web API but I didn't see any calls.

When looking at the uTorrent settings I saw that it had an option for "Download Directories", I currently have one directory specified here and everything goes here, but I am able to add more than one directory. I don't know how uTorrent decides which directory to put it inn, but is there a way for me to specify two separate download locations using the Web API? Picture

It is not possible to specify a path to save a torrent's data. It is possible to set the default download directory with getsettings, but not for each individual torrent. This will be rectified in a later release.

  • Thank you, any chance setting the default download directory before each torrent and then changing it back after the successful start of each torrent would work as a solution? – 97WaterPolo Jul 3 '19 at 21:58
