Re: Shut it down!
said by elefante72:Magnet links often suck at finding seeds/peers.
Magnet links are better because theoretically they are not hosting trackers (the locators) (the are the crypto hash name) and thus are not involved in the copyright infringement.
Just a few days ago I went looking for a show that had just aired and the only site that Torrentz found it on was ThePirateBay, which only had a magnet link. I clicked on it and waited. After about 30 minutes it had a total of 1 seed and 11 peers. I checked Torrentz again and there were a couple other sites listed. I went to one, downloaded the torrent, which had several active trackers, and within a minute of importing the torrent file I had about 150 seeds and 300 Peers. My download speed went from 3K/s to 700K/s.
And yes, DHT, Peer Exchange and the like were enabled.
