Summary

Rewrites all Magnet URI links so that they only contain the BitTorrent info hashes (BTIH). This forces BitTorrent clients to use decentralized (“trackerless”) peer-discovery such as DHT rather than server-assisted peer-discovery via central trackers. Downloads may be initially slower as peer-discovery can take a bit longer if your client hasn’t been running in a little while.
