Can't downloads from TorrentDownloads source

For the past several weeks, whenever I try to download anything with TorrentDownloads listed as a source, the item briefly appears in downloads then promptly disappears. This happens even when hundreds/thousands of Peers/Seeds are listed. I don't have any problems from other sources such as LimeTorrents and EZTV.

    please try our newest update, we did address the TorrentDownloads issue.

    https://github.com/frostwire/frostwire/releases/tag/frostwire-desktop-2.0.7-build-263

    If the download dissapears it means it could not fetch the torrent or magnet, basically it times out.

    Sometimes it says that there's a bunch of peer and seeds on the preliminary search results, but these numbers might be off, this is the fault of the search source not updating these numbers after they've added the torrent to their index database.

    Once FrostWire is able to obtain the torrent (via HTTP or via Magnet as it will be in the case of TorrentDownloads going forward) you will see after a few seconds the actual number of peers and seeds for the torrent.

    If you're using FrostWire for android, magnet fetched torrents work best when you're on WiFi or on a 4G connection with IPv6 capabilities.

    If you do get the torrent and you see 0 peers, 0 seeds for a long time, most likely this was an old torrent and you'll just have to be patient until someone comes online, which is harder for long tail, old content.
