How to Download Movie Torrent Files Free and Safely

"How to download torrent movie and music files? First of all, which is the best torrent downloader? And second thing that what is the procedure to download movies, games, TV series torrents? I don't know how to download torrented movies. PLEASE HELP IN THIS CASE!"

Although the use of BitTorrent P2P file sharing can date back to 2001, there are clearly plenty of people unaware of how to download torrent movie or music files. Suffice it to say, simply install a torrent client (a dime a dozen online) and you are all set to go on torrent file downloading. But the real difficulty lies in finding the sweet spots, such as the best movie torrent site, the fastest movie torrent file, the easiest way of using torrent to download movies, etc. At least one thing I'm pretty sure of is that torrent movie download is not rocket science. And all answers have been posted below, so no worries.

Part 1 | Before Movie Torrent Download

Step 1: Go to a torrent site
Which is the best torrent site? Reportedly, The Pirate Bay ranks first for millions or maybe billions of sharing files, which is also my personal choice. But I do suggest you bookmark all of the best 10 torrent sites. If you cannot download a desired torrent movie file on The Pirate Bay, go for it on KickassTorrents, Torrentz, and the like.

Top 10 Movie Torrent Sites Top 10 Music Torrent Sites
1. The Pirate Bay 1. KickassTorrents
2. KickassTorrents 2. MP3Skull
3. Torrentz 3. The Pirate Bay
4. ExtraTorrent 4. Extratorrent
5. YTS.AG 5. BeeMP3
6. RARBG 6. MP3Juices
7. TorrentDownloads 7. Seedpeer
8. torrentHound 8. eMp3World
9. 9. Itemvn
10. BitSnoop 10. Torrentz

Step 2: Search for a movie torrent with keywords
For example on Kickasstorrents: Ant-Man 2015 full movie torrent HD. >> See 2017 Movie Torrents List

Step 3: Pick out the best movie torrent
1. Magnet link should always be your first choice, if there is one. As for WHY, it has been illustrated in the "Basic Info" part.
2. From a mass of files on various torrent sites, you should select and download a torrent movie according to criteria: quality (1080p HD or UHD), size, download speed, format and language. Few seeders may cause difficulty in connecting the file, while more leechers than seeders leads to long torrent movie download time.

Part 2 | Steps to Download Movie Torrent Files

Step 4: Download and install a torrent client
Browser video downloader is of no use to torrent movie download and you should get yourself a torrent client. Which is the best torrent client? Well, as opinions vary, being not an expert and having not tried out every kind, I cannot assure you which one best fits you. But it is said that uTorrent, acquired by BitTorrent, is smaller in size, less CPU consuming and more practical featuring fast movie torrent download speed. But note that only after you pay for an upgrade to uTorrent Pro will it protect you from virus and malware.

Best 10 torrent clients: BitTorrent, uTorrent, Shareaza, BitComet, BitTornado, ABC Torrent Client, FlashGet Torrent Client, XBT Client, BitSpirit, qBittorrent

Step 5: Start to download movie torrent file
Install one of the top 10 torrent clients, go back to the torrent site and click "DOWNLOAD TORRENT". Downloading a movie torrent to PC normally takes little time (seconds or so). Then the torrent file should automatically open in your torrent client (take uTorrent as an example) and that's it. Your movie torrent download has started.

Step 6: Things to do during the torrent movie download
Set the downstream speed if you don't want the torrent download to use too much bandwidth; check the download speed (stable or not); do remember to seed after the torrent download finishes.

Part 3 | Edit Downloaded Movie Torrent Video

Let me put it this way: The downloaded movie torrent file can be in AVI, MKV, MP4, etc formats, while Apple iPhone, iPad and Apple TV are only compatible with MP4, MOV and M4V. My point is, devices have different supported video formats. So you might need to go one more step – convert movie torrent to MP4 (most widely acceptable) or others.

Recommended video converter software: WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe
Rating: ★★★★★OS: Windows
Overview: Three main characteristics – 370+ video/audio codecs for Apple Android devices; working as an all-in-one downloader and converter for online 4K UHD/1080p HD/SD videos; subtitle, audio track, video resolution, etc, all are adjustable with it.

Step 7: How to Convert Video Format after Movie Torrent Download

Take converting a MKV movie torrent file to MP4 as an example
1. Download and install the HD video converter tool.
2. Click "+ Video" to open your downloaded torrent movie video.
3. Output Profile window will auto pop up. Select "MP4 Video" under "General Profiles".
4. Press button "RUN" to start the video format conversion.

Part 4 | Basic Info about Movie Torrent Download

Q: Is torrent movie download safe and legal?
1. BitTorrent is perhaps the best way of file sharing as of now, well, also the popular way to transmit viruses, meaning not so safe.
2. P2P file sharing technology and program are legal, but the distributed data may violate copyrights, which means it's illegal to download torrent movie, music or game files.
3. Magnet link should be much safer for movie torrent download, because there is no torrent file folder to be downloaded (no box to hide viruses).

Q: Torrent movie download vs. download, what are the differences?
1. YouTube offers safe and legal video downloading services for a fee while movie torrent download could be free but dangerous.
2. The increasing number of people downloading movies will only get you stuck on a slow network. Conversely, the more people download torrent movie file, the faster the download speed will be.

3. Seed/Seeding: A peer or downloader becomes a seed when it starts uploading the already downloaded content for other peers to download from.
