There is no "Add torrent" button. So you can add new torrent only with a "magnet-link". In fact: this is only monitoring. Cause If you want add torrent you must use web-UI Transmission. P.S. Also need option "Delete only torrent / Delete torrent & downloaded files" Фактически: это только мониторинг того, как у вас скачиваются файлы, добавленные через нормальный web-интерфейс Transmission'а. Т.е. добавить торрент напрямую из этого расширения (без захода в web-интерфейс Transmission'а) вы можете только с помощью magnet-ссылки. А вот вручную добавить уже скачанный торрент-файл нельзя: нет отдельной кнопки "Add torrent". P.S. Сделает нормальное добавление торрентов - будет 3-4 звезды. Добавить опцию "Удалить торрент или Торрент и скачанные файлы" будет все 5.

Espectacular. Años usándolo.

Adding torrents doesn't work even with download locally option - maybe because URL is unconventional.
