BT4G ( is not a tracker and doesn’t store any content and only collects torrent metadata (such as file names and file sizes) and a magnet link (torrent identifier).

This engine does not parse the HTML page because there is an API in XML (RSS). The RSS feed provides fewer data like amount of seeders/leechers and the files in the torrent file. It’s a tradeoff for a “stable” engine as the XML from RSS content will change way less than the HTML page.


The engine has the following additional settings:

With this options a SearXNG maintainer is able to configure additional engines for specific torrent searches. For example a engine to search only for Movies and sort the result list by the count of seeders.

- name:
  engine: bt4g
  shortcut: bt4gv
  categories: video
  bt4g_order_by: seeders
  bt4g_category: 'movie'


searx.engines.bt4g.bt4g_category = 'all'

BT$G offers categories: all (default), audio, movie, doc, app and `` other``.

searx.engines.bt4g.bt4g_order_by = 'relevance'

Result list can be ordered by relevance (default), size, seeders or time.


When time_range is activate, the results always ordered by time.
