You Probably have heard of Torrents before and may have even downloaded a few. You may not know what they are exactly or what the purpose of them is.
They are a kind of download that connects to multiple servers to download your content faster. There are mainly two types of torrents. Legal and illegal. You have to be careful when downloading them because they may seem legit but contain illegal or pirate content. They Can Be Extremely Helpful Especially On A Slow Internet Connection. My internet connection is .25kbs download i get up to .85kbs with a torrent. It helps a lot. I downloaded this 2.5 gb iso in 6 hours when without a torrent it was estimated 2 days. Even though it would have probably taken at least a day with no one else using the internet the whole day. Torrents also can increase uploading speeds. You create one with a program that will upload them and give you a .torrent file. Those files can be re distributed for others to download.
Download a Torrent
Google around for a torrent site. There search for the file you want. Some sites are torrents.to, isohunt.to, torrentz.edu, thepiratebay.se and many more.
Download a torrent downloaded such as bittorent or utorrent. They are compatibile with Windows, Android, Mac, and Linux. They are used for uploading and downloading files.
Download either a .torrent file or there may be an option for a magnet. Downloading the .torrent file requires you to then open the file with your torrent program. A magnet should automatically open in your torrent program. I recommend using .torrent files because they can be reused and are more reliable.
Your torrent program will probably prompt you were you want to download the file just select a location and wait for it to download. Some torrents may take longer than others depending on your internet connection and file size.
Enjoy! Your downloaeded file may be in a compressed folder such as a .zip, .7z, or .rar you will need to download a program to extract the files such as 7zip, Win Rar, or Pea Zip.
Turn most online link's into torrent's
Find A Link For A File That You Would Like To Download. Than copy the link. The link must end in a file extension such as ,zip, ,7z, .rar, .exe, etc. * The link should look something like this http://zsoftware.tk/downloads/installer.zip
Head over to the website burnbit.com. Make an account if you would like to keep all your torrent's together and get notified when their done. You do not need to make an account however.
On the top of the page there should be a bar with a magnifying glass to the right. Paste your link in the bar and click the magnifying glass.
Wait for the torrent to be burned. Once done their will be a download button in the right upper corner of the screen.
Click the download button and it should open your torrent program. It will work the same as any torrent.
*= If the link doesn't end in one of the extension's it won't work. Also not all files work. Typically an example is when a download address contain's the ip address like 188.8.131.52/downloads/installer.zip
