Quick User Tips
BitTorrent Music Downloads
- Check for upgrades to your client for the best downloading experience. BT programs are often under active development.
- When you go to a BT download page, right-click on the .torrent link you want and choose "save target as", then save it on your desktop (or wherever). That way you can restart it without having to revisit the webpage first.
- If you have a firewall, read up on poking holes in it for the program to get through (see BitTorrent page for links).
- Keep sharing a while after you complete, or reopen a completed session. Sharing makes this work!
- Problems? Read our BitTorrent page for more help.
- Hosting sites These sites have a greater chance of currently hosting shows than those in the individual sites section.
- Announcement areas
- [email@example.com] mailing list- moderated, trade-friendly announcements only. Torrents posted to [bt.etree.org] can be announced here automatically.
- [torrent] mailing list at [nycheads.com] - moderated, trade-friendly announcements only.
- ["Box of Rain" BT forum ] at [forums.etree.org].
- [DigitalPanic] Widespread Panic, Grateful Dead, Gov't Mule, Bluegrass, and other Taper Friendly artists (Forums + Tracker)
- [The Music Never Stopped Project] - for seeds that will match entries in etree.org's [Sources in Circulation] database. Requires registration. Assured to be TradeFriendly material only.
- etree.org's other MailingLists such as etrade, etree and announce have variable coverage. Most BT siteops cannot post to the announce list, which was designed to advertise larger-bandwidth ftp sites but has generally fallen into disuse by those ftp siteops.
- [DigitalBoots] is a directory listing of lossless live links, including BitTorrent, DC++ hubs, direct downloads, etc.
- Check your favorite mailing lists or fan websites for the band you're interested it. BitTorrent use is now widespread.
- Individual sites Not all of these may have current offerings. Click them to see.
