The first step is to download and install an application that handles torrents. There are many programs that are used to download torrent files but we can use µTorrent client in this example. No matter if you use Windows, Mac, or Linux you will find on µTorrent all of these platform.
2. Choose the best torrent file
How to choose the best file to download? This is where you need to know about two important
terms - seeders and leechers
+ Seeders are people
who have downloaded 100% of data. In other words, their machines start to seed the data, so
other people can access and download parts of it.
- Leechers are people who are in the process of downloading torrents. Their torrent clients take bits of data from other computers and copy it to your computer. Once you finish downloading a torrent, you automatically become a seeder.
Why is this important to know? The answer is download speed.
Summary: when torrent file has many seeders and few leechers then your download speed will be great!
