Make Deluge Automatically Stop Seeding When Download Complete

Deluge_iconDeluge is a popular torrent client which several users have recommended to me. Deluge is cross-platform so runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. Deluge prides itself on being lightweight and having a modular plugin system to add extra useful features like labelling (useful for CouchPotato, Sonarr, SickRage and other automation software). Unlike Transmission it has proxy support so you can use it with proxy services like Private Internet Access to protect your privacy. This guide was tested on Deluge 1.31 but should work on any Deluge 1.3x installation and future versions to make Deluge automatically stop seeding when downloads are complete.
