How to download specific file from a torrent
Hello everyone, im a newbie in this torrent world I just downloaded a torrent with 500-ish files innit, is it possible to pick a specific file that i'd like to download by seeing the thumbnail or probably a preview of each files? im only lookin for one exact video from those 500 files but idk how to tell which one is the one i'm lookin for since all the file name is only a number, thankyou before
@blissful1011 Hi blissful, and welcum I think you have two questions:
How to download just one file from many in a torrent? This depends on what torrent client (software) you're using. I use uTorrent; when I open a torrent file it gives me a list of all the files available in the torrent, and I can tick/untick a box next to each file. Other torrent clients are probably similar. I find that if I download only a part of large collection of files, I will seed that material very quickly, and it helps my ratio. One thing to remember, though, is that even if you complete the download of your selected files, the system will still consider you as a leecher on that torrent--and this can be a problem if you have a small limit on the number of torrents that you can have downloading at once. You can find your limit of downloaded torrents by going to https://www.gaytor.rent/rules.php#96.
How to know which file to download from a collection with non-descriptive file names? This is often a problem. A good torrent uploader will include a folder of thumbnail images from the videos in the torrent. This is very easy to do, but many uploaders don't do it. I share your frustration. Sometimes I'll download just a few files (usually the smaller ones) to see if the material is something I like.
I re-read your OP, and I think I misunderstood what you were asking. I can't edit my post, so I'll try again.
If the torrent uploader neglected to include a folder of thumbnails/previews, there's no way to get that out of the system. You might add a comment to the torrent page like, "Thank you for sharing your material. It would be more useful to members if you included a folder of thumbnails/previews. There is good software for doing this available at https://funk.eu/amt/ ."
@eobox91103 hi! thanks for commenting, turns out it's pretty easy all i have to do is just download the torrent by utorrent and there will be a play button next to the file so that i can filter each videos (it still takes a lot of time but works anw haha), anw i have another question and this time is about peers... as you can see that the other file only have one peer connected whereas the other one have 5 peers... how do i get more peers...
how do i get more peers
The peers are other users who are seeding the torrent. In some way that I don't fully understand, your torrent client negotiates with the tracker (at gaytor.rent) and hooks you up with other seeders. You won't necessarily be connected with every other seeder. I don't know if there's a way to get the tracker to connect you to more seeders...perhaps another user can chime in.
