How to download a torrent

01 Apr

Things to know before we begin

  •  There’s no central server involved; data is downloaded from other users (seeders).
  •  you need a client application to download torrents.

Process is like this

Install client application ==> Search for the file ==> get the “.torrent” file ==> open it in client application ==> start download
There are tons of applications available on internet any of them would do. But I recommend using one of the following.

  1. deluge
  2. utorrent
  3. bittorrent
  4. Qbittorrent
  5. vuze
  6. BitComet
  7. Transmission

Now open a torrent search engine. Just like google but for searching torrents
(search google there is lot of them)

(Beware that most of the torrents nowadays are illegal. Use a VPN for protecting privacy when downloading torrents from internet.)

The speed at which you can download a torrent file is determined by the number of seeders available.

A seeder is a torrent user that has the entire file available for downloading. The number of leechers will affect your download speed as well. A leecher is a user that is downloading, but is not currently seeding. A leecher becomes a seeder when the full file has been downloaded. If there are significantly more leechers than seeders, the amount of bandwidth you receive will be lower, resulting in slower downloads.
Download torrents with a large number of seeders and of the best quality and size.
After downloading the .torrent file you need to open the file in any of the torrent client you have installed. The download will begin.
Alternatively you can use magnet links. In torrent sites you will see an option called magnet links. when clicked they will open your default torrent client and start the download. no need to download a .torrent file.
Some sites will give you a hash value for the torrent. you can use this value to download a torrent. in your client, go to file >> add a torrent from link. then paste the hash value.
the download will begin when you press enter.
