Step 1. Download and install the BitTorrent client

… BitTorrent is one of the most efficient and popular methods for downloading large files on the internet and hence the popular method for downloading movies. To download files, you need a BitTorrent program (also called a BitTorrent client) and a BitTorrent directory site (also called a torrent tracker) to find movies.

Popular BitTorrent clients include uTorrent, qBittorrent, Transmission, Deluge, and Tixati

Step 2. Weigh all the risks

In many countries, downloading movies that have not been legally acquired is a violation of copyright law and can result in hefty fines and even jail time. When using a BitTorrent client, your IP address remains public and you may eventually be fined.

Step 3. Search for the movie in the BitTorrent search engine

To find torrent files, you can use not only a huge number of popular torrent trackers and torrent directories, but also regular search engines such as Google. Many torrent trackers and torrent directories contain invasive ads, adult graphics, and sometimes even files that contain malware or viruses. Make sure the site is safe and secure before downloading anything from it.

  • On the site http://www.publicdomaintorrents.info there are only legal films that can be downloaded using BitTorrent, so it's better to start with it.
