Torrent Info, Software and Links

You torrent, I torrent, we all torrent.

Torrents are a type of file sharing network, similiar to P2P (think napster, limewire, etc)... except better.

 

Please Note: This isn't a complete guide to using torrents -- so newbies be warned:

Downloading torrents could lead to computer viruses or worse: legal trouble.

See the bottom of this page for more links.

How Do I Play ISO Files?

ISO files are made for burning onto DVD... but you can play ISO files directly on your computer without burning. You just need a tool that allows you to "Mount an ISO". Luckily, there are free tools for this!

Virtual Clone Drive (freeware) - Will let you mount .ISO files along with .CCD, .DVD, .IMG, .UDF and .BIN files.

Read this article by the How to Geek on how to Mount an ISO image in Windows 7 or Vista for more info and resources on the subject along with alternative software recommendations.

Torrent Clients

You'll need the software (torrent client) for downloading torrents...here are my top picks.

µTorrent - Free, and very lightweight BitTorrent client for Windows or Mac with many features - I highly recommend this software.

BitTorrent - Another good client.

Vuse - Free java Bittorrent client formerly known as Azureus <-- another very popular and highly recommended client, lots of bells and whistles (built in player, torrent search, etc. etc.).

Top Places to Search for Torrents:

Next you'll need to find the torrents.

BTjunkie.org - The most reliable torrent search site I have found so far.

The Pirate Bay - Stockholm district court sentenced Pirate Bay founders to a year in prison, plus over $USD 3.5 million in fines. But the site is still an amazing resource.

Vertor.com - Claims to filter out bad torrents, viruses, passwords, DRM locks, and fakes.

Mininova.org - Personal favorite.

ISOHunt - Advanced BitTorrent search engine with cross-referenced tracker statistics.

Other Torrent Tools you Might Need:

WinRar - Got a strange collection of files you downloaded from torrent, but can't figure out how to get the peices back together? You probably need to download WinRar.

K-lite Codec Pack - Can't view a movie you downloaded? You probably need a codec -- this is a good resource.

Playing Movie Torrents

The K-lite Codec Pack will probably take care of 90% of the torrent movie files you'll download and play.

But with VLC Player -- you probably won't even need the codec packs. VLC Player works on just about any movie downloaded from torrents. I highly recommend using it. I even use to for my mp3s instead of Windows Media Player or iTunes.
