Mr.M Truck - yo i have no idea whats up with your file. I torrented it and its working flawlessly. Try torrenting again I suppose if its not a big deal. If its a pain then I could always just put it up onto megaupload (or soemthing like that that has a 1gig limit sicne this particular file is under a gig) for you. And it should play if you have the same file as me and others because its working fine for us and you said the file dmast sent you was also working fine.
Am sure I've just bungled some part of the process.
Currently trying to torrent the file again and see what happens.
One more question that occured to me whilst reading your message. Is the word torrent just a more specific term for downloading a file? I get the overall idea of what's taking place, it's just all the jargon that gets so confusing. Thanks so much for your time and concern. Between the tips from you and DMast and my persistence, I'm sure I'll eventually get it and become an expert seeder / leecher!!!
I found this somewhere, it cleared it up simply I think and nicely:What is a torrent?
A .torrent file is a file that contains the basic information about a file or set of files. This includes the file names, sizes, the date created and some other information. The torrent file also contains an info hash - which is basically just a unique code for that torrent. No other set of file(s) will have the same info hash as this one. The final thing contained inside the torrent is a list of trackers. If you have some torrent files, you can't open them in a text editor because they are encoded. You will need to open them in torrent client software (like Bitcomet which you can install on your computer.What is a tracker?
A tracker is a computer on the Internet. The tracker's role is to manage live torrent files and keep track of statistics. When you open a torrent file in your client software, your client software contacts the tracker specific to that torrent. You client tells the tracker how much of the actual files (described by the torrent) that you currently have. If you created the torrent - then you probably have 100% of the files described by the torrent. If you downloaded the torrent - then you probably have 0% of the files.
Once your client has told the tracker your current situation, it logs that and gives you what it knows about that torrent. It will tell you that Bill in Arizona has 43% of the files described by the torrent. It will tell you that Kate in Amsterdam has 67% of the torrent.What is a seeder?
A seeder is a person who has more than 0% of the files described by the torrent. If a torrent has no seeders, then no one (currently talking to the tracker) has anything to give.What is a leecher/peer?
A peer is a person who is looking for the files described by the torrent. The more peers the more people are actively looking for the files described by the torrent.
