There are many reasons for all this, starting with the large number of traditional functions that this application presents. In this way, users have the opportunity to fully customize the download of these files, as well as when sharing them with others. In addition, the client meets all the expectations that are considered almost mandatory in applications of this type. We refer to the fluidity in the downloads, customization of these, security functions, etc.
In this way, the qBittorent program has gradually gained the trust of a large number of users around the world. At the same time, in this particular application, it is worth highlighting a functionality that we are not very used to in other clients. Specifically, we mean that this solution for downloading Torrents has its own search engine for these files.
It is clear that this can bring us many advantages over other similar programs. And it is that from here we have the opportunity to do a direct search of these files without having to use the browser. However, there are several devices that will help us get the most out of this search engine that we are talking about in these lines.
How to activate the qBittorent search engine
The first thing to know here is that the program’s Torrent search engine is not activated by default. That is why we will be forced to activate it by hand if we want to use it on the client. To do this, the first thing we must do is go to the menu called View of the main interface. Among the options that appear in it we will have to mark Search Engine.
At that moment, a new tab will appear next to the usual Transfers tab that is marked with the name of Search. Therefore, it is easy to imagine that to take advantage of this search engine we will have to locate ourselves in it.
Update search plugins
It is possible that we find a list of plugins or sources that are used to search for content by default. That is, this refers to the websites that qBittorent will use when searching for new Torrents.
In the event that we want to take a look at the default search sources that will be used in the input client, click on the button Plugins search located in the lower right corner. In the event that we do not see any, we recommend you click on Check for updates, so the ones installed by default in their latest version will appear.
Install new sources to find Torrents
At the same time in this same sense we have to limit ourselves to the Torrent sources that are included by default in the Program. We can also add other websites that serve the search engine to locate the contents that interest us. This opens up a wide range of possibilities to increase the functionality of this search engine that we refer to here. To do this, we go back to the Search tab mentioned above and click on the Search Plugins button. To achieve what we are looking for here we just have to click on the Install a new button.
