U Torent Free Download For Mac

uTorrent is a powerful BitTorrent client that is stable, efficient and feature-rich and provides user with an extensive amount of information about and control over torrents being downloaded and uploaded.

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol that lets many users cooperate to share files among each other. In order to participate in this kind of sharing you’ll generally need a BitTorrent client, which is where a program like uTorrent comes in. uTorrent is one of the most popular clients around because it has an extensive selection of features, allows for additional features through add-ons, provides advanced information and capabilities concerning uploads and downloads, is highly stable and is on a fast development track, which means you don’t have to wait long for bug fixes and new features.

uTorrent has a very small file and memory footprint, runs very fast and doesn’t require many system resources even when managing a large list of torrents. Automatic bandwidth management helps you to maximize bandwidth in a hands-off fashion, which is great for casual users. You don’t have to worry about your downloads and uploads saturating your throughput and thus crippling other online activities. If you’re an advanced user, uTorrent also gives you granular control so you can determine how you seed and when and why particular downloads and uploads get priority.

uTorrent supports skins, which let you determine the overall aesthetic and UI of the program. uTorrent comes with a handful of skins to choose from, and there’s many more available free through the community. This BitTorrent client also supports extensions. Many users have asked for a built-in media player, and while the developers didn’t want to add bloat to the core version, a community-driven extension allows those who want to view videos and listen to music from within uTorrent. You can even expand on uTorrent’s already substantial reporting and automation capabilities.

Also, the built-in search is still very basic compared to many BitTorrent clients, and while this can be overcome to some degree with add-ons, there’s certain advanced search functionality that would have to be integrated at a fundamental level.

Using torrents, you can quickly download movies, films and other files to your Mac. A torrent is a file with the file extension .torrent. This article will explain how to download torrents on a Mac.

Are torrent files legal?

Torrent files are not illegal, but downloading copyrighted material is. However, there are many torrent files out there containing non-copyrighted material which is why we choose to publish this article.

How torrent downloads work on the Mac

Mac

Without going all geeky, we’ll now try to explain how torrents work.

Someone downloads a .torrent file

The first thing that happens is that a user downloads a .torrent file. This file is very small and contains only a list of the files that are to be downloaded and some other stuff used by the user’s torrent application.

Opening the torrent

The next thing that happens is that the person that downloaded the file opens it with an application designed to handle this kind of file (more about these applications later). This application will try to find other people trying to download the same file. The torrent application will now grab pieces of the file from the other computers and put them together into one file. The user’s torrent application will in its turn start to share pieces that you have downloaded with other users. You get some and you give some.

Torrent applications for the Mac

There are various torrent applications available for Mac users. In this article, we’ll tell you about our favorite application, Transmission. It’s simple to use and free (we’re not paid to say this).

Transmission

Transmission is a great torrent application for Mac. It’s easy to understand, it works pretty flawlessly and it has most of the features that one wants. To download Transmission, click here (download will begin immediately).

Adding torrent files to Transmission

Create a new downloads folder

Okay, let’s assume that you have downloaded Transmission and want to start downloading files. The first thing you should do is create a folder where your downloads will be put. For instance, name it “Downloads” and place it on your desktop.

Tell Transmission that you want your downloads to be out into that folder

Now, open Transmission and go to the top menu. Click Transmission > Preferences. In the preferences window, click the second tab labeled “Transfers”. A drop-down menu is now available and from that menu, choose the folder where you want your downloads to be put (the folder you just created).

Get a torrent file

The next thing you do is download a .torrent file. You do this from your web browser. Find a web site that offers torrents and find a download button. When you click it, a .torrent file will be downloaded to your computer.

Open the .torrent file with Transmission

Now drag the torrent file into Transmission and it will be visible in the list. All the files that you want to download will now be created in the Downloads folder. These files are useless and broken until Transmission says that the files are 100% downloaded. You can throw the .torrent file away after adding it to Transmission.

The problem with torrents is that they depend on someone seeding the file from his or her computer. Seeding means that you allow other users to download parts of the file from your computer. Sometimes no users are downloading or seeding the file and therefore it can’t be downloaded.
