Torrenting isn't going anywhere. Just dumb out in the open torrenting of hollywood stuff.

 

Smart people torrent with seedboxes on private trackers only.

Not that it's what you meant, but torrents themselves certainly aren't going anywhere either. The torrent protocol is perfectly legal and used on a wide scale by many huge tech companies.

 

But yeah, private trackers.

I've just been using piratebay if I want to find something public. Torrents and great content will still live on with private trackers. I really can't recommend public trackers for anything other than trying to find something not on the private scene.

I think its just high-end movie content on the radar.  I don't think anime sites are being targeted in the least unless it happening on sites rich in movie content.  Does anyone think that our isp are stepping in some though ?  Ive had a ton of dns servers without connectivity not sure if its that or if its because i have win 10 now which is a minefield in its self for me ><

Yeah its somewhat true (Looks at the one tracker I have access to)

 

But at some point Hollywood and Feds (Because apparently Hollywood bought the Feds) are going to start picking on the private trackers. They see those trackers (weather private or public) at threats to their $100 billion bottom line.

It may feel like it with the downfall of The Pirate bay last year and Kickass recently.

 

There are still other public trackers available, right now, your best bet is on RARBG if your are looking for latest movies and tv shows.

 

Also, a better and superior alternative is for you to join Private Trackers, it may seem intimidating at first, but that is just over-hyping the difficulty. Actually they are easy to maintain if you follow the basic rules which are again, Easy.

I'm thinking of renting a remote server with high bandwidth and doing a remote install of ubuntu on it.  Then when my downloads are done just ftp it to my network or drop it into a trucrypt container and ftp the media like that so even if security is compromised in route as it will be with out the long password + keyfiles gl opening it to give me a dmca violation.

The biggest threats to Hollywood are Kodi boxes, and their attempts at stopping them are failing hard, as shown in this article.

I have found over the last couple years, most torrents that are older content have barely any seeders.

That's always been that way with public torrents. It's not any better or worse than it ever has been. There is no incentive on public trackers to seed so people don't bother doing so. That and a lot of people who torrent, just simply don't understand how it works or don't care about the longetivity of the torrent. They only care that they are able to obtain it. Thus majority of public torrents over a month old are dead or close to it. That's the way of the game. You can request uploader to reseed but your mileage may vary with that.

 

Private trackers are different because if you don't seed, you get kicked out for poor ratio. So at the very least people will seed long enough to not get a hit & run. However because of this, people are often less likely to download because they fear not being able or being willing to seed so they snatch from public trackers instead to save time and ratio. As a result private torrents don't see a lot of snatches and thus overtime lose out on seeders as people eventually have to drop stuff from their seedbox to make room for newer content. This is why freeleech torrents see way more activity.

I don't think they're dying by any means, there may be some ups and downs (sites temporarily going away for example.) Just as mentioned, torrents tend to die not too long after in public. Especially less popular stuff I've noticed in my attempts to get stuff for my family that's several years old. (Or even just a year old for some stuff.) Although, sometimes I've also run into it still being alive but only like 1 seeder with a shitty upload speed on a large torrent. Better than being completely dead and unable to get the item in question though, It's just I'm not one to leave my PC on so I hate having to leave my PC on for like a full week for a download.

 

Either way, most people just don't seed, which I can understand frankly, I never really seeded myself either unless I just felt bad because ratio was poor, (E.G 1 Seeder, 200 Peers.) then I'll usually seed until it gets more reasonable of a ratio. Especially since I have a seedbox now, I don't have to seed myself directly.

 

Looking at one of my recent torrents, got 7 (Or 6 minus myself) seeders but 116 have downloaded it. Although, I think around release (Last Sunday) was like 30~ seeders for a minute. I guess people seeding around 'prime time' and then that's it for them. I assume the ratio isn't much different with other releases, although maybe people seed longer for more popular stuff/release groups?

I knew of myspleen in the early-mid 2000's but never tried private torrents myself, is it common for Seedboxes to be used used behind vpn's or not?

@Koby I agree with you completely but sadly sometimes some rare content gets lost because it is only available on public torrents apparently (this just a example by the way) a rare version of pinocchio

this not animation by the way I actually tried getting this long ago and even then it was dead sadly (Pinocchio BBC 1978 Barry Letts on VHS and torrents only) my point is if nobody bothered to seed rare contents a lot of things would probably be lost and dead already hence why I a very happy that places like kametsu exist I only wish some people would seed more by the way if anybody manages to get this I would really really appreciate it

I have been trying to get this for a long time :(

I don’t think they’re dying, but access to key torrent sites – such as Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents – has become more difficult depending on the country you live in. Also, as mentioned above, nobody really seeds outside of private trackers, meaning older torrents disappear.

      Robot Chicken has had sketches involving actors reprising their roles, like Dave Foley for their A Bug's (Short) Life sketch and a few actors for their The Wild Thornberrys: Wild as F*** sketch. This can also involve them swearing in-character as their otherwise kid-friendly characters, as it does in these two cases. But unfortunately, the easily accessible online versions are bleeped, depriving us of the joy of hearing Flik from A Bug's Life saying fuck.
       
      If these sketches, the Bug's Life one appearing in "Choked on a Bottle Cap" of Season 6 and the Thornberrys one appearing in "Zeb and Kevin Erotic Hot Tub Canvas" of Season 8 exist uncensored on home media (which might have been the case for Season 6 on Blu-ray?), I'd like it if someone could rip them through the DVD/Blu-ray and iTunes respectively. 
       
      C'mon, don't we all want to hear Flik from A Bug's Life say fuck?

      This is a dumb question but what are the big chances of getting caught by uploading torrents to nyaa or on a cloud storage that you can share?
      I'm afraid of knowing in the back of my mind that one day I might get caught in big trouble from my provider for doing all this torrenting/downloading, especially anime in particular...
      I'm not sure if the US is a country that can detect piracy or torrenting easily or you can suffer major consequences if you do get caught.

      Hello Kametsu Users!
       
      I found today an New software Radarr, https://github.com/Radarr/Radarr.
      Apperently you can use this for Downloading Torrents, Usenet and more fun stuff.
      But the problem is I can't get the Radarr -> Settings -> Download Clients to work.
      I also tryed to add the Content into "C:\ProgramData\Radarr\bin" and added RuTorrent.
      When I try to make connection I get an Connection Error and it said can't connect to external server.
      Does somebody know how to fix this, are there any users here who using this Software on Microsoft Windows.
       
      Many Thanks: DJHulp!  
       
      P.S. There was no Information into the video:

      I have two questions.
       
      1. I'm relatively new to anime. I've just started getting into it in the last year or so. I hear a lot about fansubs. Are there "official" subs for anime series or are all the subs out there just a version of a fan sub? What I mean by "official" is if I'm watching a foreign movie (I live in the U.S.) the subtitles that go along with that movie is what I would consider "official". Is it the same with anime? If it is how can I tell the difference between "official" subs and fan subs? I ask because I tend to like consistency in the subs regardless of which anime series I'm watching (at least when I'm watching something for the first time).
       
      2. Because I live in the U.S. anime is not as readily available as it is in other countries. I have Netflix and it has some anime but most of what I've watched is anime that I've downloaded. I mainly have used nyaa.se and bakabt but are there any other good sites that I should check out for watching online or for torrents? I have downloaded some stuff from the Coalgirls site as well.
