How to Download Torrents Using a BitTorrent Client
How to find Torrents
The best torrent search engine I could find is non other than torrentz. You can find almost anything that has ever been in torrent using torrentz.
Search for a torrent.
Here I'm going to download a movie called Drive Angry 3D (2011). I'm just going to type the name at the search box and hit Enter.
You will be able to see a long list of torrents in that name. You have to be careful when selecting a torrent. If you can see a Green circle next to the torrent that means it's a verified torrent.
(Verified torrent is a torrent checked and approved by their team or search bots. In most cases such torrents are not fake and don’t contain any malware or viruses)
That doesn't mean others are fake. There are many perfectly good torrents which are not marked as Verified.
Once you are in the downloading game you know which uploaders/rippers are most trusted among the others. You can even search under the uploaders/rippers name but there are fakes uploaded under their names too. So always read comments before you start downloading.
You can look for comments in old torrents but if it is a new one and there is no comments posted, you have to rely on the uploaders/rippers name. In such cases, it is better to go with verified torrents.
Another thing you have to consider is that whether your (movie) torrent is a camera copy or a DvDRip. The quality varies according to the original source( A DVD, Blu-Ray Disk, or a workprint). Click here for more details
Here, I've selected the torrent from one of my favourite rippers.
Even though it is not marked as Verified, I know it's trusted. (Beginners should stick with Verified Torrents until you get some experience on who are the trusted uploaders/rippers, and on how to make sure it's the real deal.)
Here, you can select any of the sites listed and download the .torrent file which opens with the BitTorrent client. My favourite Client is µTorrent. It's light and no fuss.
Choosing a Website
Given below are few of the great sites for downloading your .torrent file.
Here, I've selected thepiratebay.org because it has always been simply the best.
Always remember to look for comments and read them if there are any. They really help us to choose torrents wisely.
Each of the above sites has their own way of identifying trusted uploaders and torrents. In thepiratebay.org, the trusted uploaders are denoted by a skull next to their name.
Adding more trackers to get more seeders.
(Trackers assist in allowing peers to connect to each other. By adding more trackers, you should have more options for peers to connect to. Therefore, there is a good chance that adding more trackers will improve download speeds.)
In the middle of the torrentz page you'll see a part similar to the below image with a heading "Torrent Trackers" and at the end of this list you'll see a link "µTorrent compatible list here". Click on that and you'll get the list of trackers.
Downloading the torrent.
You just have to click "Download this torrent" and open the downloaded .torrent file.
Then the torrent file will open with your default BitTorrent client. In this case with µTorrent.
In the above window go to Advanced and copy / paste the µTorrent compatible torrent trackers list in the area specified for Trackers. Simply add those trackers with the existing trackers.
You can also add more trackers by downloading the same .torrent file from the list of sites in torrentz and loading each of them into the torrent client.
If it is the same torrent file with the same Hash, there will only be a message saying
"The torrent you are tring to add is already in the list of torrents. Do you want to load the trackers from it?".
You just have to click Yes. If not, it'll open like a new torrent file. In this case cancel it otherwise you'll be downloading two torrents with the same name.
If your torrent has multiple files, you can select which files you want to download and click OK.
Now your torrent will start to download.
To speed up the download, your upload speed limit should be 10% of your maximum download speed while you download. After that you should seed with maximum upload speed.
If your max download speed is 200kB/s then your upload speed should be 20kB/s
I for one keeps my upload speed limited to 3kB/s to 10kB/s until I finish downloading, then I seed with full upload speed.
Now you just have to wait till the download completes.
Always remember to seed at least for 24 hours. A lot of downloaders could be depending on you.
