Torrentio

Torrentio is an extremely popular torrent indexer used for streaming torrents via Stremio. Due to massive usage, the developer has significantly rate-limited the service, and has been clear that he doesn't want to productize it.

ElfHosted runs an internal scraper for our users (also free to the public, at https://torrentio.elfhosted.com but rate-limited), and this product makes the indexer available externally on a per-tenant basis

How do I access Torrentio?

Torrentio will be available from your dashboard (https://<username>.elfhosted.com>), or directly, at https://<username>-torrentio.elfhosted.com

How do I use it?

Hacky code ahead

Be aware our instance is a fork of Gabisonfire/torrentio-scraper-sh, which in turn is a fork of the original (TheBeastLT/torrentio-scraper). Some features from the public torrentio don't yet work, and the database doesn't have the years of history that torrentio did. This is a work in progress :)

Install the Addon!

Click "Install" to allow your OS to open the link in Stremio, or right-click the Install button, and copy the long stremio:// URL, and paste it into your Stremio search bar.

Am I rate-limited?

Yes, but the intention is that the rate-limit be generous, and enough to share with up to 10 friends / devices.

We're still dialing this in, but you can see the current limit here

Can I try it out?

Sure, the free public version is at https://torrentio.elfhosted.com - it's the same database, just a lower rate-limit.

Can I use it with Prowlarr?

All ElfHosted apps get unrestricted access to the internal endpoint, at http://elfhosted.torrentio1. So yes. See Prowlarr for instructions re adding the indexer.

Can I use it with Iceberg?

Yes, Iceberg already supports custom URLs for torrentio endpoints. Use http://elfhosted.torrentio1 - see Iceberg for instructions.

What users say..

Here's what some of our usersfriends say..

"I don't understand how there aren't tons of elves already. The way this whole thing is setup is great, from getting a free $10 amount of elfbuckz to start, free 7 day trials on most services, the subscription prices of the products are reasonable, to the smoothness of how everything runs. I just dont get it, people choose to pay way more with places that don't provide the same customer service nor have a great community like this one. I recommend elfhosted to everyone.

"Just wanted to check in here and let @Darth-Penguini and anyone/everyone else know...WOW. I have been struggling with storage for years, maintenance of Docker containers, upkeep, all of it. Elfhosted is so freeing. It's an amazing service that I hope to be a member of for a long, long time!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ @Fingers91 (Discord)

"I just have to say, I am an incredibly satisfied customer. I had been collecting my own content for nearly 20 years. Starting off with just a simple external HD before eventually graduating to a seedbox with 100TB of cloud storage attached and fully automated processes with Sonarr and Radarr . However, the time came when the glory days of unlimited Google Drive storage ended. I thought my days of having my full collection at my fingertips via :plex: were behind me, until I found Real-Debrid and ElfHosted.

Now I essentially have the exact same access to content as I had before, but even better. Superior support and community involvement. Content is available almost immediately after being identified. A plethora of tools at my fingertips that give me more control and automation than ever before. Wonderfully well done and impressive! I am looking forward to being a customer for a very long time! Massive kudos to @funkypenguin 🀟
