Torrents

have tried downloading torrents, but must be doing something wrong.

 

have tried different sites, found the "file" I want, but when I download it, I end up with a small file (couple of kb) which downloads in a second or 2.

 

question is, what do I need to do, to download movies (or whatever :rolleyes: )????

uTorrent - Download that... Install, and use it to download the legal torrents you've found... :innocent:

 

A "Torrent" file is just a list of files (including file size, MD5 etc) and a tracker (Torrent server) to connect to...

Your "Torrent" client (Like Vuze, uTorrent, BitTornado etc) will use the information stored in that torrent file to connect to the specified tracker... The tracker then connects peers (users like you) together... You then share the file information you have with each other... The more people who share complete file information the faster your download speeds are (on the whole). Once you've completed your download (leeched)... Upload (seed) as much as you can (try and seed at least the same amount of data you've leeched) as this helps keep the "Torrent" alive...

 

The above may not be perfectly accurate... but it's a basic overview... I can't be arsed trying to explain in full and making sure it's 100% correct.... Use Google for that!

EscortEVOlution does not condone the downloading or use of illegally obtained files.

Torrent clients can indeed be used to download legal files and for this reason this topic remains open and only certain posts are now visible here. :thumb:
