Any safe torrent sites that I can use?
its been maybe 4 years since I last used torrent, so i'm not certain how torrents have changed since those years

First of all, do not use that shitty miner client.
Second, not much has changed honestly. True, as >>809653 said, law enforcement stepped up their game recently, but so did private trackers, seedboxes, etc.
Third. if you are concerned with privacy, I strongly recommend a seedbox over a VPN: you can download files on your computer via SFTP at full speed without throttling issues and seed 24/7, without the need to keep your computer on. That way, you can easily maintain a good ratio.

>>809553
Use Deluge or qBittorrent. Everything else is for hipsters or grandpas.

Also for movies and shows use Yify and Rarbg
torrenting org is nice, you also have 1337x
Rutracker is cool too, though a bit tricky to navigate

Never hesitate to google for torrents, it's a good way to discover new sites.

Yeah, its movies you have to be careful with, especially when they have just come out and everybody wants it. I got burned recently when i felt safe torrenting the first Kingsman movie because it is already a few years old. That was just after the sequel, which I didnt know about had hit the theaters and apparently the studio put the first part on the watch list again. Neither the studio nor the fucking lawyer will ever see a cent from me (they wanted over 800€) but the lawyer I had to get wasnt cheap either ... I only got off because other people besides me are using my internet connection so they couldnt prove who actually downloaded the movie. I'd be pretty much fucked otherwise.

Fellow Germanfag here, slavic friend got a nice fine of 800€ for torrenting the entire first four season of GoT.

but let's be honest, if you touch that series without a VPN, you kind of deserve it.

>Yify
Pretty sure the original guy quit and his releases had shit audio anyway. Then again, I haven't touched Yify in 2-3 years. Did it change for the better?
>>
>>811776
A while back it was pretty choppy, the usual mumbling voices and then ear shattering action sounds. Had to literally sit there with a mouse to roll the sound up and down, one wat that bad I was going from 20 for action sound, up to 60 to hear voices (which made all the background louder) and back again. Axxo was way better.

Now though, it is pretty good. similar sizes and audio is normal again.

Im using it regularly for latest bluray releases.
>>
>>811776
Original guy from YIFY secretly signed some documents with anti-p2p organizations and quit.
Some other people took over and use the name YIFY/YTS for their own good.

Dunno about their current state of video quality.
>>
>>809888
Jesus Christ you had to pay a goddamn lawyer so he could tell you that a fucking IP is worthless as far as proof goes? Do you not have law help forums or anything in Germany?
And you don't even need others legit using your connection, just claim you had an unpassworded wifi running or people coming over constantly. And you've never, ever seen that film.
>>
Come to portugal? To be honest i think the goverment coudnt care less about torrenting. Sometimes a website is closed by an isp and thats about it but you can just use a vpn and still acess it
>>
>>809619
What's it like to not be fun?
>>
>>811784
> just claim you had an unpassworded wifi running or people coming over constantly

There is/was a thing called "Störerhaftung", which makes the owner of the IP at that current time (ISPs like to give out that personal information like address, phone numbers ect.) liable for the infringement. So either way, there is no way out. Germany is a real cuck hero when it comes to anti-P2P-lawyers, as they reserve most rights for themselves to gain infinite amounts of money.

The owner of the WiFi pretty much has to secure the WiFi. Unprotected WiFi = the lawyers are in the right. Protected WiFi = prove that more persons than just you used the WiFi at that specific time (lawyers provide timestamps with the unique peer-ID used for the infringing download).

I'm torrenting like a shitbag, got a few of these bills but have changed my ISP since then. Never heard of the lawyers again. Main rule: avoid torrents that are pretty much viral, be careful of what you download on public trackers; use Google and common sense altogether to avoid getting such letters.

Since /t/ doesn't seem to have /sqt/ or /qtddtot/ and this thread already exists...

What's the deal with public trackers?
I have a couple dozen in most torrents. Some are always busy or never respond, so I delete them, then add new ones when I see a new torrent using a tracker not on the list.
I'm guessing that using more trackers makes the torrent more resilient, but what are the downsides? Are there many blatant honeypot trackers?
>>
>>809699
Just curious, but is there any major difference between Bittorrent and qBittorrent?

the only time ive gotten shit from torrenting is when cox emailed me about it and told me to fuck off before they cut my connection, i just stopped seeding torrents as soon as they get done downloading and that never happened again. moral of the story, dont seed unless you have a seedbox
>>
>>811974
i'm always using these because they are online most of the time:
udp://tracker.coppersurfer.tk:6969/announce
udp://public.popcorn-tracker.org:6969/announce
udp://tracker.opentrackr.org:1337/announce
udp://tracker.leechers-paradise.org:6969/announce
udp://tracker.zer0day.to:1337/announce

having a hundred trackers added may make the torrent more resilient, but there is DHT and PEX already. imagine the data sent to hundreds of trackers (of which, most likely, the majority is down and not reachable, so you're pinging some dead domain) just for retrieving the tracker data - this might aswell can be used for seeding.

>>812335
>dont seed unless you have a seedbox
most retarded faggotry people can write

downloading a movie with bittorrent already makes you liable for copyright infringement as you are sharing the movie with other leechers anyway when downloading
bittorrent is no "pure download" system (unless there are literally no other leechers than you), it works tit-for-tat, as leechers are transferring the pieces they have for pieces they need

believing that 'just downloading the torrent but not seeding it' werks against copyright strikes is like believing in 4chan being a place where polite people meet
>>
>>812346
polite people do meet on 4chan though retard so your analogy is shit.
>>
>>812346
well it stopped getting me emails from cox and i didnt do anything but stop seeding torrents. so obviously not seeding torrents decreases the odds of getting shit for torrenting.

I am not sure if I am fucking something up or it's a difference of me running stuff on potato and keeping big file lists.
So, utorrent is bad, right? If I understand correctly, mainly because of ads which were considered malware/used for bitcoin mining in the past (dunno if utorrent is still doing something crappy like that, supposedly they cleaned their act) and because the code isn't public - do tell me if there's something beside that.
So I've tried to migrate elsewhere since quite some time. ITT people suggested Deluge and qBittorent.
Just tried the first one. Had issues with importing my list of torrents from utorrent, but then after finishing it, Deluge got very slow and crappy. I mostly keep things pretty legal, downloading unlicensed here anime/manga (being the filthy weeaboo I am, I know) and whatnot but I need my big list cause I sometimes get several different fansubs for comparison, delete some and keep the torrents to remember to not redownload them and in general, have that big list for the sake of archivization and so I get informed that I already have this or that file when I am updating some subs. uTorrent seems to be far more responsive, with less hang ups when it comes to handling this list of torrents and I miss those features in Deluge.
How better is qBittorent? I'd like to move on to something better and open-source for the sake of safety, but is there a way to somehow important my torrent list into it without it trying to redownload all missing files, overwrite others and generally make a mess like Deluge tried to? I basically need some easy transition tool that'd preserve locations, settings, status of files of uTorrent while also allowing me to manage that big list of them without hang-ups and waiting a solid minute after turning on the client like it unfortunately was in case of Deluge (not that uTorrent is perfect but it's responsive as it loads everything in my list in chunks).
Any help, please?
>>
>>812350
Glad you jumped on that argumen and thanks for proving my point btw.

>>812351
Keep believing then. Sure the time getting caught is longer when you seed, yet there still is enough time to get caught while downloading anyway. :^)

>>812363
There is no "out of the house" solution for qBittorrent importing torrents from uTorrent. Try this though: https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,3224.0.html
A little fiddling and you're fine.

Concerning the performance, Deluge manages to use more resources and fucks up more frequently on my end than qBittorrent does.
Deluge really has a point with their plugins, but imo stability > plugins. Imagine Deluge using 100% of your CPU and 2GB of RAM just for being stuck at loading the one torrent that is in its list.
Meanwhile qBittorrent has its bugs too, but the developers bring out updates for that more often than on Deluge with their bi-yearly (or smth) releases where they don't really fix stuff but add more shit and thus more bugs.
Imo qBittorrent > Deluge, but other people might argue otherwise.
>>
>>809553
Use Qbittorrent or maybe Deluge (I haven't tried it).
For websites, I like thepiratebay.org , en.metal-tracker.com (for metal music), rutracker.org (mainly music), skytorrents.in
Get a good paid vpn if you want to avoid letters from ISP.

Doesn't work for me, shows shitload of crap I never touched and I couldn't find things I actually got myself anytime in the past. I doubt I have dynamic IP, probably just my provided routes all connections through some common point.

use dht crawler sites. They give you only the magnet links.

I use btkitty.com or btku.com but their domain changes often and they do not always appear to be trustworthy, so never without adblock and noscript.

They are quite awesome however as they will find old torrents that had their original torrent files taken down long ago, also no need to visit dozens of sites in the hope that one has the torrent you are looking for.
Since its a chink site they dont care about dmca.

Also for the germans: Try furk.net its a bittorrent proxy which turns torrents into "normal" web downloads. Basically they do the torrenting for you and once the server has finished the torrent you download it like a normal file. Used it back in 2006 in Uni. They are in the Ukraine, no risk here. Costs IIRC 10 bucks a month.
>>
>>812475
qbittorent is shit, most magnet links are stuck on downloading metadata

>>813719
Of course.

no wonder when there are no other peers to transfer the metadata
