IMC LA Video Archive Bittorrents - Please Download and Seed

by IMCer Tuesday, May. 11, 2010 at 10:27 PM

Four archives of IMC LA videos are now being shared via Bittorrent, and tracked by One Big Torrent.org. Help out by downloading the files and seeding.

download: BitTorrent at 43.8 kibibytes

Have you ever wanted to watch a bunch of activist video from this site, but found it too difficult? Now, you can use Bittorrent to download over eight gigabytes of the history of IMC LA videos, and watch them in rapid succession.

Attached are the four .torrent files. Load them into your Bittorrent client and *share*.

+++ An Explanation for Newbies to Bittorrent +++

Bittorrent is a file sharing system. Files are shared, primarily, from desktop computers like yours. They are shared using a "bittorrent client". Some well known clients are uTorrent (Microtorrent), Transmission, and Bittorrent. You need to download and install a client to use Bittorrent.

Bittorrent works by sharing the file shortly after you start receiving the file. Your participation in the sharing causes the overall download speed to improve, and the more people share the file, the faster people will be able to download it.

Bittorrent needs assistance to find the computers sharing the files. Trackers take care of this. The tracker for these IMC torrents is One Big Torrent.org, a tracker for radical literature, political books and videos, and other IMC-friendly media. http://onebigtorrent.org

The final piece of the puzzle is the .torrent file (pronounced "dot torrent file".). A .torrent file contains a link to the tracker, and a list of files to download. It's basically an index of files. This article contains links to four torrent files for the archives. Download these and "add" them to your Bittorrent client, and it will start to download the archives.

Then, as the downloads finish, LEAVE THE BITTORRENT CLIENT RUNNING. By keeping it running, you are sharing the videos with other people who want to download the archives.

Also, you should send people links to this page, and get them to download the torrents, and share the files. People who do this are called "seeders" - they "seed" the network with shared files. People who download without uploading are called "leeches" or "leechers".

Would you rather be a seed or a leech?
