> You need to create the .torrent file on the webserver where the file is
I tried to open the deluge bittorrent client, and then I did:
Deluge - File - Create Torrent
Then in the Files box I inserted my video (bigfile) on my harddisk.
Then in the Trackers box I inserted following 4 trackers:
In the Webseeds box I inserted the address of my video, which is exact
the same file as the video sitting on my harddisk (it is actually a
folder containing an html file and the very video file):
Then I clicked the "Save" icon, and the .torrent file was created.
Then I uploaded this .torrent file, so it is sitting next to the video
file on my webhotel address.
When I now try to click on the .torrent file, it opens Transmission
bittorrent client, and begins to download the file, and it shows 4
connected peers, but is idle, probably because nobody else is trying to
download the same .torrent. :-)
