Torrent fail

Post by ali baba » Sat Jul 12, 2014 8:28 pm

I'm attempting to download Orange is the new Black but the torrents keep failing. I've downloaded 6 different torrents and all 6 crash repeatedly.

What to do? :help:

Crash? you mean the video file won't play after D/L? Try TPB blue, pink, green skull posters. Or maybe different media player VLC for example

There are a couple of season torrents on kickass.to that are valid. A lot of the media files seem to be an obscure Matroska container that the players can't handle.

I'm guessing it's your client.

If 6 different ones failed, that's odd.

Can you be more specific about what's happening?

Not being rude but as said above please be specific. Nobody can work out if your torrent client is crashing, the downloaded media files are corrupt, or you are trying to open a perfectly fine .mkv file with some media player too dumb to alert you to it's incompatibility or lack of correct codecs ;)

The torrents will download for a few minutes before failing.
I restart them, they download for a few more minutes before crashing again.

I'm on uTorrent 3.0

You mean they can't connect to any seeds or peers and stop D/L?
failing and crashing when talking about a PC or program means "it don't work"

Maybe a screenshot of your uTorrent client while it is actually downloading, AB - size the columns to show the peers data. Also, you can PM me a torrent link that's playing up on your machine and I'll try it from here if you want.
