You shouldn't download torrents Charles, that is illegal activity as I recall you telling me at one time when I posted up MotoGP races.

Downloading the torrent itself isn't a video file....
It is a file list for a set of files to download. You will need bitlord or something to open the torrent and then start the download. Then once complete, the files will be in your download location on your harddrive.

motogp races are avaialble for sale online. british superbike races on the other hand are not. if there were a way to pay for them i would pay and not down load them. if they won't let me buy them then i'll download them......lol

He is trying to play the file to view it is what I gather. Or B. you havn't even download the file yet. Which means you need to get a Torrent downloader, which is a free, like Azerus. If you have already downloaded the file you need the proper codecs to view the video.

Is it a .rar file? If so go to download.com and get winrar to open that file. It will then make you a .avi for you to view. enjoy

It is sitting in the que trying to find people seeding the file. He hasn't got the videos yet. You have to have 100% of the file before you can view it. All it has done is built a placeholder in your videos section for the video. Bit torrent stuff can be confusing sometimes. I am a pro.

Don't confuse the man Los... Winrar is a just compression utility like WinZip. It won't actually make an AVI file.

Nope talked to this fool... He only had about 3 people seeding and then his ports weren't even forwarded. Bascially his chances of getting the file were pretty slim.

Yeah after getting off the phone with him I found out he didn't even have the file. I though maybe he just didn't know how to decompress it. n00bs

if you were to click on the avi file before completion it will not play... why?... b/c you don't download the file linearly with bittorrent... you download whatever everybody else needs - so you can upload it... i.e., you download it fragmented - until you reach 100%...

and los is correct (for the old style bittorent) you need to have port redirection enabled... however there are newer clients available that don't require it...

that said, you're download will almost always run faster with port redirection turned on...

lmk if i can help...
