Download a Movie

Using Torrents

Be aware of the dangers.

In most countries, downloading a movie that you have not purchased legitimately is a violation of copyright laws and you can face massive fines and even jail time. Use a trusted VPN to hide your IP address when using a torrent client. Additionally, many torrent clients come bundled with additional software downloads, adware, or malware. Pay careful attention during the installation process and make sure you don't download any additional software you don't want.

Download and install a BitTorrent client.

BitTorrent is one of the most effective and popular methods for downloading large files on the internet and is, therefore, a popular method for download movies. It requires a BitTorrent program (referred to as a BitTorrent client) to download files, and a BitTorrent search engine website (referred to as a torrent tracker) to search for a movie.

Search for a movie on a BitTorrent search engine.

There are many popular torrent tracker sites and torrent search engines that can be used to find torrent files, but you can also use regular search engines, like Google, as well. Many torrent tracker sites and torrent search engines contain invasive ads, graphic adult material, and can sometimes have files that contain malware or viruses. Find a safe and reputable source before downloading anything.

Open the torrent file with your BitTorrent client.

Double-click on the torrent file to load it into your torrent client. Depending on your settings, the download should begin automatically.

Scan the downloaded file for viruses.

When the torrent file is finished downloading, Be sure to scan the file with an antivirus program to make sure it has no viruses or malware.

Open the movie file.

  • Once the torrent has finished downloading, your client software will save the video file to the location you indicated.
  • Delete the torrent file or remove from your BitTorrent downloader if you want. This will prevent other people from downloading the torrent file from your computer
