Hi all,

Is there any way to disable webtorrent? I want to use my own torrent client to handle torrent and magnet link. On Chrome, I just click on a torrent link and it will get opened by my torrent client because it’s already associated with that filetype.

cc @Mattches for info. Since I’m not sure about this too.


Hi! Apologies for the late response.
Unfortunately no, this is not currently supported. However we are working on a switch to do just this:

I know that’s not super satisfying but I hope it helps knowing that its already in the works!
