Hello, I have downloaded Utorrents 2 times and still can not get the program to work. I watched the video but no help. When I start Utorrents the window comes up 3 easy steps to find content.

OK when I enter in a song in setp 1 it brings up web pages that want me to download thier apps(eg.) MP3 rocket where I found this song. I could not find any torrent sights that do not want you to download thier app. Ok I am older and not familliar with torrents, what am I doing wrong??

Thank you:(

You have too find a torrent file of that song. Go to piratebay search your song or another torrent site. What you did was search your song on utorrent's search engine. The best thing to do is google your song or file name and type torrent after it and you should get the website. Download the torrent and run it with utorrent and it should download. Make sure it has at least 1 seed. The more seeds the faster it downloads because you have more people to download from. Peers are how many people the are downlaoding off you the less peers the faster the torrent download is. Seeding is sharing the file to other people as they can download off you and when you download it uploads(seeds) the file at the same time. So find a torrent with lots of seeds and less leechers (peers) si it'll faster. Torrents with less than 3 seeds are slow. I'm new too.

Thanks to groudon2224 for providing an explanation of the torrent downloading process. From another newbie, a word about selecting the correct download link. Almost all torrent sites have multiple "download" links. To download the torrent, you must select the correct link. Below are five top torrent sites with the correct download links:

 isoHunt: (isohunt.com): "Download .torrent" above "summary" tab

 The Pirate Bay (thepiratebay.org): "DOWNLOAD THIS TORRENT" below the green download button

 Btjunkie (btjunkie.org): within download window below ribbon with torrent name

 isoHunt Lite: (isohunt.com) "Cached .torrent " at end of torrent title/description

 KickAss Torrents (kat.ph): the light brown button with "DOWNLOAD TORRENT"

Thank you for those suggestions Ilaprelle ! Have been away for quite a while from uT and had to reinstall the new version. Since two days ago when I searched from within uT to get two movies. I reached lots of scamming sites, blind alleys and finally from the Torrentportal, I downloaded 3 or 4 times each and 4 of them wanted me to use their media player (paying of course) another came with a text and instructions on how to get a password to open the Rar which was saved as an Avi ... a waste of time to no avail :mad: Others would not download and had not seeders or peers.:rolleyes:

Will try good ol PirateBay and the IsoHunt which I used about two years ago also tried MiniNova but does not have too many options. :(

Is there a way to recognize valid -above level- files to download ?

Thank you again !
