Although the above method works, many users may encounter some difficulties when using regular torrent clients (such as uTorrent, BitTorrent, etc.) to download torrents.

  • Torrenting wastes your data while seeding.
  • Some ISPs block or slow down Internet speeds while torrenting.
  • Some networks (eg university networks, and office networks) have blocked torrenting.
  • Your torrenting client (such as uTorrent) may sometimes have issues associating with your browser's magnet links.
  • With BitTorrent, magnet links may not work due to your firewall and antivirus software.
