Here is the step by step guide to download your favorite movie using µTorrent.
Before going into actual details of downloading the movies I just want to give some information on what is µTorrent and how it actually works.
You might wonder why you should ever want to know all those information…?
But here is the thing,
if you have some knowledge on how these things work you can easily understand to stop some potential threats and other risky operations included.
So are you ready…
Most of the times when you are trying to download a movie or a file or mp3 songs you’ll just click on the download link and file will get downloaded. But here, to download a movie or any file the process is little tricky.
So what is µTorrent?
It is a simple P2P file-sharing software.
Ohhh wait don’t get confused with the word P2P. P2P stands for Peer-to-Peer i.e. we are downloading the software directly from the other person computer/laptop. Here you don’t need a central web server to store the data.
Now you’re thinking… is that really possible?
The answer is hell YES!!!
Here is how it works.
In very simple terms, you are giving access to a file on your computer to some other person by using special software or client in our case it is µTorrent.
I don’t want to go very deep in explaining all the technical knowledge on P2p file sharing. So that’s the simple and purest form of understanding how P2P file sharing works.
