This is kinda old discussion, honestly rotten discussion. I will show you step by step guide to download a file from Torrent. You may hear about torrent downloads, and some quality of torrent like, “everything comes in torrent first”, best quality movies releases in torrent” etc. Yea most of those are true. Torrent is best way to download pirated or shared content from all over the world. There are both pros and cons using torrent download. Torrent meant to share files globally back then but now a days it is a huge network of downloading and sharing media illegally. Like, a movie is running premier and someone leaked the movie in torrent. In this scenario, many of us won’t go to Cinema Hall than enjoy movie in home so that we can save some bucks. This is completely illegal work. Some country like USA arrest people who download contents from torrent. But Asian countries are not so straight in torrent stuff and it is quite normal to download from torrent in countries like Bangladesh, India etc. Now I am going to show how to download files from torrent.
Step 1: You need a torrent client software!
Well, it is obvious. Torrent system work differently than normal web download. You need a software called torrent client to download torrent file. There are two famous client software available for windows but both of them are theorically same and comes from same manufacturer. This are Bittorrent and µtorrent. I use Bittorrent. You can download it from here. Click download button of Bittorrent Stable package.
You can also download bittorrent for Android or MacOS from right sidebar. It is a little software. Once you complete downloading, install it. it is typical wndows program setup.
Note that, you must do setup carefully and uncheck unwanted options or some unnecessary software will be added to your computer.

- If you have a limited internet connection then you can limit seeding (sharing the file you downloading with others) from Preference (Ctrl+p) » Bandwidth and set upload limit 1 KB.
- If you do not need to seed (sharing that file with other who downloading) then stop seeding after download complete.
- Always download files with more seeds and less leches/peers. More seed and less leches/peer is better and less seed and more leches/peer is worse. You can never complete a download that have no seeder.
