Explanations on magnet links !


Recommended Posts

Hey guys !

I take the time to wrote because I want some explanations on how does magnet links works.

I read some articles and understood some things :

- a magnet link contain a coded hash of the file to download

- a magnet link is just a text line, not a file

- a magnet link is enough to start a download

but I can't understand HOW does my torrent client is supposed to know who to ask in first, using DHT, to find seeders. I mean, with no tracker, how can the client know where to find help ?

Maybe I misunderstood something, that's why I want a precise and clean explain please.
