I need an activeX/com object to read number of seeds/peers from a URL torrent resource. This component will be used in Visual Basic 6, however it (the compnent) can be developed in any language, preferably C++ for speed.
This needs to be a non blocked control.
Property : URL - ie : '[url removed, login to view]'
*** Needs to work for http:// AND ftp:// URLS
Please note some ftp:// urls are syntax :
ftp://id:pw@domain/[url removed, login to view]
Property (returned) : seeds (int)
Property (returned) : peers (int)
Property (returned) : valid (int)
Method : Verify
Event (fired when finished) : Processed
This control will read a torrent url, get seeds and leeches (number) then fire off the Processed event. It will have set valid =1, or valid =0 if url unreachable or obviously bad torrent/invalid file.
