So I have one and am downloading it on utorrent. It is stuck on saying '0.09' in the status bar. So I stopped that and downloaded another torrent of the same clip. That seems to be downloading, but it is still saying 0.09 and is going nowhere for ages now! The episode is not on Youtube, so that is why I turned to torrents.
I looked at how long it is going to take and it says "4 weeks' WTF! Our speed isn't slow like that, so I don't know why it is that long. It is one season of a show, not the whole show. Every time I look the length it is going to take is going to take longer. I only just want one episode from the show, but I can't find just one episode.

After downloading a torrent, what then? How can you make them Mp4 files or WMM to put into Windows Movie Maker? I have tried years to understand torrents and understand them better now. This is my first time downloading one

The reason your download is not progressing any further is because it cannot find anywhere to download the parts of the file from. When you download a file via torrent, you are not downloading from just one location (as you would for normal downloads), you are download from multiple locations.

If the file has stopped downloading, it means it cannot find anywhere to get the file from... at this time.

Hope that helps a bit :)

what you need to do is select the other episodes, and choose "don't download", that way only the episode you want will be downloaded

I found one other place but they require payment for their torrents and that doesn't mean it will work :/

Is this cap ok?
http://i825.photobuc...65656464656.png

I'm now trying to get a episode of a show called 'Forever Knight'. The episode is 'If Looks could Kill'
I can't find any place that has it, just the whole season and torrents just aren't working. I have also scoured Youtube for it, no luck either.

Some other episodes I want of other shows/movies are:
Katts and Dog: Crime of Fashion
Lonesome Dove: High Lonesome
Slaughter of the Innocents (1993)
Watch It (1993)
Sirens: aftermath
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0106133/
Prisoner of Love
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0170454/


I guess I could just buy the season, but buying a DVD set with costly shipping for one episode is just..insane. It is for a fanpage of a celeb I really like and I'm very passionate about searching for her work for other fans of hers

If there is a file you don't want downloaded, you need to right click on it and change the priority to dont download. This is located at the bottom of the image where you can see 3 file names with 3 red bars on the right side.

Hope that helps a bit

I just downloaded a file and it was fast (A WHOLE MOVIE) and it worked fine, even have it open on Windows Movie Maker! I couldn't believe it worked! Why did this one work fine? :/
I just wish I could get those other files to work :(. I figured out how to delete a file, thank you :)

that's because there were enough people connected that were sharing the same file, and you were able to download it from them.
If they also have high-speed connections, it would happen a lot faster.

If you don't have enough people connected that are sharing the file you want, they file will take longer, because you are downloading from other people who are sharing a file.

That's how bittorrent works :)

Do you know how to download Youtube videos that are blocked in your country? Clicking on the download bar to the left of the video won't work and I have tried keepvid, savevid and many other sites and they won't work because they pick up it is blocked in my country. I want the video extremely bad and I'm sick of not being able to get it. I have tried proxies and I can't find the proxy of this show, I have found the episode I want that is a full episode on Youtube and I want to download it. Here it is, it is the 'Outer Limits' episode I wanted so bad. I can watch the video on hidemyass but it is of no good to me unless I can edit it, which means downloading. It seems this is a USA only file..?

the best way to download videos from youtube is by using download helper, which runs on firefox.
Hrmm... I was going to suggest using a proxy but you've already tried that.

Thy this, I hope it works:
