#161 Support file:// urls


It would be great file:// urls are supported by aria2c. curl support it.

    This would be useful when dealing with multiple torrents stored on local disk that need to be downloaded. So each torrent can have associated options.

    For local file transfer, I think cp is far more efficient.

    You can give multiple torrent paths to aria2 directly:
    $ aria2c /path/to/torrent1 /path/to/torrent2 /path/to/torrent3

    Also you can put them in text and pass it with -i option. You can set options for each torrent individually inside the text file. See INPUT FILE section in man page.

    Specifically, it would be great to have this feature supported under the URI file, for torrents that are stored locally, so multiple files can be seeded at once with multiple options, unless I am not seeing something.

    Actually, I see what you mean, I assumed the URI file didn't support this local paths since the man page made no mention of it, I don't need this feature. Thanks t-tujikawa, I guess not many people are using the uri file this way.
