"I want to download a collection of albums to my iTunes with uTorrent. But I have no idea how to use uTorrent to download music. Can someone tell me how it works?"
A BitTorrent client essentially acts as the gateway to transfer music torrent files into audio tracks. Thanks to small memory footprint and multi-platform support (Windows, Mac OS X, Android and Linux), uTorrent wins its reputation for music/movies download. But speaking of how uTorrent works, beginners may ask for help. Well, the guide in this article can tell you how to use uTorrent to download music, like hit singles, albums, customized playlists as MP3, FLAC, M4A etc, audios to hard drive.
Step 1. Install and Launch uTorrent
First of all, you should download uTorrent from its official site: uttorent.com (recommended) or other reliable software download sites and install it on your computer. And then, launch it.
Tip: To pursue a faster uTorrent music download experience, you can enable protocol encryption to hide your traffic escaping from throttling by service provider, open a port (port number range: 49512 to 65535) to connect more torrent seeders for reaching maximum download speed and enable uPnP to speed up uTorrent.
If you need internet connection to do other things beside music download, set bandwidth limits on upload and download rate in case that uTorrent will take all of available bandwidth.
Step 2. Download Music Torrent
Go to a music torrent site for downloading desired music torrent file. uTorrent also provides a search box. Input the song/album title and it will lead you to sites for music torrent download.
There will be a great number of files in the resulting list. When you select a torrent, please pay attention on seeder vs. leecher ratio. More seeders the torrent has, faster the download speed will be. But if leechers are more than seeders, the download duration will turn longer. In addition, comments may tell you if the torrent is a fake or infected with virus. Take a look at the comment list before downloading.
Step 3. Download Music with uTorrent
Double click the downloaded music torrent and it will be automatically added to download list if uTorrent is the only torrent client on your computer. After the download is completed, you can enjoy the music right now or transfer it to portable devices for listening on the move.
