Seedr has been experiencing many difficulties as of late. When you try to do a premium account with Paypal, it won't accept payment. Also, no matter what type of premium account you choose, it gives you the basic account only. I tried to buy a premium account with Paypal. Paypal authorised the payment ( I know this because I called them after i was refused) but seedr refused the payment. I did this six times in a row and never got a premium account. I have emailed them, but they refuse to answer me.

The homepage design reminds me of Dropbox, but that's really it. I sadly was unable to get the Service to work, I personally dislike websites which use Absurd amounts of JavaScript or have some Activation feature bound to JavaScript, well this is the case with Seedr. I tried to use it as an alternative to Put.io, but it seems it will end at "Try".

For starters from the start you are pretty much told "Premium" is the Way to Go. Since you require some sort of Verification? Being a free user. The problem however is with Activation. See you get an Activation email, most services will either do the following.

  • Typical Activation: Once you navigate to the URL your email will be verified, no questions asked
  • Tad More Fancy Activation: You still get a URL in your activation email, but you also require to Re-Authenticate which then will only activate your account.

Well where does Seedr stand? Actually they send out an email with a URL, nothing atypical here. But then you are presented with a Page with a button that says "Activate Account" the Button is JavaScript bound so whola, here is the problem. It does not work, so you can't activate. I also like how they detect my Browser being Opera but the Opera Extension is dead and no longer exists under Opera Addons.

Truly the shame, I kind of wished the Developers took tad more effort into writing a proper JavaScript function, or stay away from the whole JavaScript bound Activation Button and use the same Activation principal was everyone else.

Using Seedr.cc free service the last few days. After inputting log in details it's been displaying a message about ticking the box to prove you are human, but there is no box displayed to tick. Maybe they do this every so often in the hope people will get frustrated and buy a plan, though I doubt it. That would drive potential customer away to alternative service. Then again, it might just be my browser setup. The Seedr website may not appreciate some of the extensions I have running in the browser.

This problem also happened about a month ago when I'd been a regular visitor for a few days.

Apart from this reoccurring problem, when you can actually log in it's more than fine. They seem to be able to acquire files very quickly compared to other services, and that's pretty much what they claim, though "Instantly" is an exaggeration if there are few seeders, as to be expected. Still, I've seen them acquire a file in 10 minutes when there's only been 1 or 2 seeders. And if there are lots of seeders e.g., 50 or more, then it may acquire the file in 10 or so seconds. I haven't found any other seed box service that matches it for speed.

TorrentSafe on the other hand may take hours to acquire file if there are only a couple of seeders, or fail to acquire the file at all.

Seedr Opera extension is dead but you still can install the Seedr Chrome extension in Opera. At least, it worked for me on a Mac with latest Opera version. Seedr is a very good service, so fast. Worth the price of a paid subscription.

Seedr is very good, but if you have any problems don't expect any technical help, they ignored all my e-mails.

Years ago there were only a few cloud based torrent clients and they always had problems. This is literally perfect. I clicked an audiobook or movie to load and within seconds literally just seconds u can direct download it. I have no clue how it's so fast but it is. Definitely try it. The chrome extension is awesome as well.
