I just downloaded and installed bittorrent, and this is the first torrent I've done. This torrent has been downloading for a few days (it's really big), at a slowish but kind of acceptable rate of ~100 kB/s. But today it has been down to ~1.0 Kb/s. In the info pane of the torrent it says; Seeds: 0 of 114 connected (1 in swarm). In the torrent list it says its connected to 0.092 seeds. Also, this entire time it;s been uploading at ~129 kB/s and the info pane says: Peers 66 of 1174 connected (63 in swarm).

So it's uploading to other people, but not downloading from them, and I have no clue as to why. Can anyone help me figure this out?

Looks like there's no actual seed on the torrent.

How can you tell that? And if there isn't any seed, what was i downloading up until today? And does that mean I won't be able to finish the download?

You were downloading up to today because there were pieces available up to today.

If there is no seed, AND availability remains below 1.0, you won't be able to complete.
