Torrent Downloads

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Torrent is a small file (around few kilobytes) with the suffix .torrent, which contains all the information needed to download a file the torrent was made for. That means it contains file names, their sizes, where to download from and so on. You can get torrents for almost anything on lots of web sites and torrent search engines.

Torrent is the most popular way of downloading large files, including movies and games.

Downloading with a torrent is advantageous especially when downloading files, which are momentarily very popular and which lots of people are downloading. Because the more people download the file, the higher speed for everyone.

  • * torrent is a file
    * with torrents you can download almost everything on the net
    * every file (or set of files) need to have an unique torrent file to download it
    * to download anything through a torrent you need a torrent client

You probably already tried another ways of p2p sharing - torrent is just another method. The original BitTorrent client was written in Python and it has been made open-source. Thanks to that, we have a large variety of torrent clients today. Just choose which one you like. The best these days is utorrent.

Legality of downloading:
As with any downloading technology, you should not download copyrighted materials such as software, mp3, movies and so on. If you do not have the licence for it, it is illegal. There is an additional problem with torrents - in certain countries "only downloading" movies and mp3s is legal, however when downloading with torrents you also share (upload) your downloaded part - and that is not legal anywhere (you are distributing copyrighted material which you do not have a licence to).

Of course, torrents themselves and all around them is nothing illegal, until you download materials you shouldn't. Torrents are also used for fully legal distribution of certain data ( for example demo versions, trials and so on).
