I'm a newbie to downloading videos. I have been reading up on BitTorrent and P2P technology. There is a lot of terminology to digest. I get the feeling that it works well, is fast, free and there is a wider and larger choice of videos to choose from.
I understand that you have to:
1. Select a bittorrent client which provides you with the program.
2.Then you have to find a torrent search engine to find movies in the torrent format.
3. Choose a movie, download via P2P and hope it does not have any malware attached.
Looking at the BitTorrent Client info on Wikipedia shows quite a few BitTorrent Clients.
BitTorrent6.0, BitTornado, burst and Azureus seem to be recommened.
Wikipedia shows the followiing search engines:
* The Pirate Bay
NuTorrent (for adult stuff)
For security programs i have Norton IS 2008 and Spyblaster
I read that up to 35% of the internet traffic could be bittorrent content so apparently it is quite popular.
I have two questions:
1. Security. Are there some other freeware programs that I should install before installing a bittorrent client and a torrent search engine?
2. Which client programs and search engines are the best.
