What is btaccel you say…

Btaccel is an online bitorrent client that downloads whatever torrent you want into their cloud servers much like a gmail account, which means that you can get a direct download once the torrent has been available.  Getting a torrent this way is alot faster because you no longer have to worry about getting seeds for a connection, it just tells you when the download is available to you.  Better yet btaccel will email you once your torrent is available for a direct download.

How do I sign up for btaccel?…

To use Btaccel all you need to do is register for an account(which is free) and login much like you would a normal email account. Go to http://www.btaccel.com and register for an account.  Now you may have to wait for a couple days to get an confirmation email so just be patient.  Then after using the confirmation email you’ll be able to login.  To learn more and register for a btaccel account click the link>         <Take me to btaccel.com>

[How To] Use Bittorrent – Utorrent

bittorrent

Update 4-5-09: Added another youtube video explaining Utorrent options more in depth.


I love Bittorrent.  Bittorrent is an extremely efficient method of using P2P technology to distribute files across the Internet to the masses.  This post is not a lesson on the technology behind bittorrent. Instead, I am going to show you what you need and how you can start finding software (among other things) on the Internet.  Please note that Bittorrent itself is a legal medium, but the content that you download with Bittorrent may not.  This is a tool, and I am not held responsible for how you use it.

Tools:

Need a Bittorrent client.  I recommend utorrent.  Find it at www.utorrent.com

Get the latest version.  After installing it, it will look like the screen shot below:

utorrent1

Now afterwards you need what is considered a Torrent file.  This is a small 1kb file that tells your Bittorrent client how to download the file.  If you go to http://www.torrentz.com and search for Ubuntu, you will see many links.  I happened to find a link and download it off of mininova.org.

utorrent2

After you add it to your torrent client, the file will start downloading.  Once the file finishes downloading, you can then decide what you want to do whether that is install the program, or burn it to a disc.

What is important to achieve faster Bittorrent speeds is to enable the ports on your router.  For a good guide on this, go to www.portforward.com and find the utorrent guide for your router.

When you go to the speed guide in Utorrent, you can specify a manual port:

utorrent3

To see a video of this in action, watch my video below for a quick tutorial on how to setup yourself for Bittorrent usage and port forwarding.
