Prodigem the content hosting service and community now has the ability to automatically create BitTorrent feeds from external RSS feeds. Auto RSS Torrent is a simple to use feature that scans items in your RSS feed for enclosures and torrents them. This means anyone providing content that’s legal for people to download can now easily automate a Bittorrent distribution channel, an efficient way of distributing bandwidth hungry media files like audio and video. It works very well with dedicated blogs/podcasts that contain clearly titled posts with links to large media files. You just publish as usual and Prodigem automatically creates and seeds the BitTorrent.
Your RSS Torrent Feed takes the form: http://www.prodigem.com/torrents/rss/yourusername.xml
A distribution license can be specified for your content and full details for each torrent created can be emailed to you automatically.
You can get started with a free account which automates BitTorrent creation, management and seeding, providing 100 MB of disc space for uploading files and 3GB of monthly bandwidth. No bandwidth is used as long as your torrents have 3 other people helping out. Other account types for selling content and file usage are available at very reasonable prices.
