Transmission is a fast, easy and free multi-platform BitTorrent client.

Transmission sets initial preferences so things "Just Work", while advanced features like watch directories, bad peer blocking, and the Web interface can be configured with just a few clicks. Macworld put it this way: "It's fast, it's extremely lightweight, and - even though it's available for a variety of platforms - it behaves just as you'd expect a Mac program to."

Transmission supports full encryption, file selection, a web-based interface, groups, peer exchange, automatic port forwarding, webseeds, watch directories, tracker editing, more...

What's New

  • Fix peer communication vulnerability (no known exploits) reported by Ben Hawkes

I do NOT like the new MacUpdate look and organization (in 10.7.5).

2.84 still crashes more than 50% of the time in 10.7.5.

ANNOYING!

The most macintosh torrent software available; however it lacks 1 major feature - it cannot bind to an IP address (like that of a VPN); Vuze is the only torrent software I am aware of that can do this which is a shame as I am not a huge fan of it's interface and unnecessary other features.

Overall rating sadly has to be a 2.5 as I cannot use this software until they implement binding to an IP address

Besides Transmission Crashing every single time I Quit it since Mavericks - When I "Pauses ALL Transfers..." a second later Transmission "Resumes All Transfers" without me touching it. Been doing it for years.

I notice that most of the Comments on MacUpdate for Transmission have Minus Smilies. Must be those insecure boys over at the Transmission Forum.

Ya just gotta love how all the Tranny sycophants so desperately need to minus anyone who reports anything other than glowing recommendations. Sad.

I'm still crashing every time I try to Quit Transmission.

I have barely every used Transmission, and am not a member of their forums or have any connection to them. The program takes a long time to quit, but works reliably for me and has done on every version I've used. Has it occurred to you that the problem might just be local to you, or limited to a minority of users -- and that the high ratings the program gets are because most users don't experience what you're reporting? Just sayin'.

Go to the Library folders and clean out all the Transmission plist, prefs, cache and resume files.
Maybe something is corrupt, this has helped me reset Transmission after an unrelated system crash while downloading some client files. You should also re-download Transmission and trash the old application.

Hope this helps.

It's probably something related to your installation or system Albabe. I've been using 2.83 since release without a single issue.

Yes. Doesn't mean it's not happening to me a bunch of Users. Just read the Comments here.

I've done that... but I'll try it again. Thanx!

Something seems to be wrong with the developer's code signing certificate with this release. When I launch 2.83 I get a warning "Transmission can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer". I know I can work-around this issue by CTRL-clicking and opening but I wanted to report the problem. I tried to register for the Transmission forum to report the issue but it never sent me a registration email and so I cannot log-in. Little Snitch also identifies an issue showing a warning "unable to determine validity of code signature". Previous releases (2.82 and older) were properly signed by Digital Ignition LLC, US. If anybody else (maybe MacUpdate) can report this issue to the developers it would be most appreciated.

I've been able to register on the forum now and have reported the code signing issue.

This has been resolved - just redownload 2.83.

Thanks for reporting it.

Thanks John. I've downloaded 2.83 again and now everything is fine. The app is signed with a valid certificate and Gatekeeper doesn't block it.

Wish it remembered which monitor to show up on after restarting my computer. Still an outstanding product.

Works fine here. Are you using Mavericks? (I'm not).

This has always been the most stable and reliable bit-torrent client on mac, and it still is.
The latest update made it even better. Now the download speed is not fluctuating anymore.
One and only torrent client for me.

"Stable?" Not for me. In Snow Leopard and now Mavericks, when I pause transfers it automatically starts them again a second later and now in Mavericks it crashes every time I quit it.

Works... Works... Works...

I'm using this tool since a really long time now and never got trouble with it. It's a simple and solid torrent client under Mac OS who I never would miss.

I assume the Transmission guys assume they've finally created the perfect Client. There hasn't been an update in eight months.

I have a regular problem with Transmission... Happens all the time. I use the button that "Pauses ALL Transfers..." and after a second it "Resumes All Transfer" without even touching any button.

I'm in Mavericks.

That happens to me in Lion too, but only in the rare case that it didn't completely crash first (when using EITHER 'Pause All' or 'Pause Selected').

Wonder where the devs have disappeared to? 2.82 has more than one major issue on SnowLeo, Lion, and it looks like 10.8 and 10.9 too.

If you are having problems report them yourself. Not everyone might experience them, so they may never get fixed. https://trac.transmissionbt.com/#a3.Reportaproblemrequestafeature

I don't go over to their Forum any more. Its a very odd mixture of sycophants and pissy admin who are very snitty towards folks posting questions who aren't as tech-savvy as they are, and then imply that you are lying to them.

Here’s a new issue to add to the litany for v. 2.82 + (14215): In addition to crashing just about every time I click either of the Pause buttons, now it can’t seem to accurately measure the percentage completed. Every time it gets around 96-99%, just before it’s about to “complete” it suddenly reduces its estimate to around 95%, and it does that several times before it gets it right and finally completes. Very annoying.
