  1. Greetings, all BitTorrent fanatics and gurus. I'm having trouble downloading a torrent, and I don't understand why. The torrent appears to have multiple seeds, yet the availability, and hence the download, is stuck at 0.971. The torrent in question is "Safe.House.S01.1080p.BluRay.x264-KEEPERS[rartv]" (the one shown on top in the screenshot). As can be seen in this torrent's Trackers tab, its Peer Exchange row lists 5 seeds and 117 peers, and its Distributed Hash Table (DHT) row lists 4 seeds and 58 peers. Thus, I'm surprised and baffled that the torrent's availability remains (and has always been) only 0.971. How can this be? The BitTorrent User Manual's glossary defines a seed as "A peer with 100% of the data in the torrent contents." 100%—Doesn't this mean that even a single seed would provide a torrent access to everything it needs to reach full (1.000) availability? Perhaps I'm missing something? Please, BitTorrenters who know more than I, help me understand, or even better, let me know if there's something I can do to get the final bit (pun intended!) of this torrent downloaded. Thank you!
  2. Hello. I just downloaded BitTorrent and added a torrent. It started downloading metadata and stayed on "Connecting to peers". I tried with other torrents from other sites but I got the same result. I already tried to change VPN, but it still doesn't download. How can I solve? Thanks in advance

  4. Hi! First of all - thank you for this forum! It really helps I am a newby so my question might make you laugh, I don't mind. Now, to the point: I'd like to create a torrent linked to a file on my pc and then, I'd like to seed it in the same time downloading it without making it public. Can one do it? Some possible solutions I thought about: 1) Use two computers (already not good, a lot of effort...) make a private torrent, seed with one pc and download with another (I have tried it with two laptops connected to the same wifi, and it dodn't work, probably because it was the same ip, can you get around it somehow?) 2) Use one computer with two torrent programs (eg. bittorent and utorrent) use one program to seed and another to download (preferable, but I have tried this too, doesn't work, probably some proxy is needed, but I do not know almost anything about proxy) 3) Use seedbox and download the uploaded files back (rather expensive I guess, however my friend has some space on his server, can I make my own kind of private 'seedbox' with it?) Which of these 3 is possible and how? Any suggestions? If there is any other way to do it, please let me know! The goal is to download via torrent a file I already have. It is a private file and I musn't make it public. It's all about a unique qualities of corruption only (to my knowledge) incomplete torrent download presents. I have tried downloading in other ways (eg. google drive) but without much success. But maybe you know of another program/website where downlowading process is similar (I think it's all about sort of 'cloud' of information that gets mixed up when incomplete, but I don't know really). Thank you in advance for any help!
  5. We just standardized our peer ID in Popcorn Time (quite a large amount of users use Popcorn Time, our estimates put it at around 5 million to 10 million people) so we were wondering how we got a "friendly" name put into uTorrent/BitTorrent clients for the Peer ID we use in Popcorn Time. Regards, XeonCore
  6. Can someone give me an explanation of what the numbers that appear on the info tab mean? So for example I get something like: Seeds: 4 out of 30 connected (50 in swarm) Peers: 3 out of 5 connected (7 in swarm) What I want to know is, what does the "out of x" number mean? Why is it smaller than the swarm number?
  7. OK - hypothetically... 1. New matrix 7 movie came out and I was seeding it. 2. But in all of my wisdom I had an ipfilter.dat with many IPs blocked. 3. An FBI agent joins the swarm and asks a tracker for a list of peers. 4. He gets the list with me as a seed 5. Tries to connect to me but my ipfilter does not let him as he is on my blacklist Question: What is the point of ipfilters if the FBI agent sees MY ip and sees that I am seeding the file that he requested? Isn't it a definite proof of me being illegal? Would appreciate if some knowledgeable individual would enlighten me regarding the indepth torrent workings or confirm that I got it right and ipfilters are useless Thanks.
