This page will be a step by step guide for those that have never used torrents before. Once done reading this, you will see that it is just as easy (if not easier) than regular downloading.
There is also a huge bonus to using torrents instead of regular download links. If you have a slow connection, or your connection tends to cut out, the torrent will just pick back up where it left off and not let your connection cause the download to fail. Where as a regular download may fail and need to restart.
Download and install a VPN, Virtual Private Network. This will allow you to remain anonymous as you download the movie file. This prevents your Internet Service Provider, as well as Copyright Trolls, from seeing your computers (or phones) IP Address. This is an important step to avoid negative consequences for downloading potentially copyrighted material. There are many VPN’s to choose from, but here is a short list…
Revisit Boyhoodmovies after completing Step 1 & 2, and find the movie post on BHM you are interested in. While on that post, scroll to the middle of the post until you see the Torrent Download Button. It will look like this:
Click on the Torrent Download button. You should see a download notification.
Locate the torrent that was just downloaded. It should be in your files Download folder. Click on the torrent, and the Torrent program you chose should automatically open. Depending on the settings you chose while installing your Torrenting program, it will either start downloading the movie as soon as it opens or you may be asked a question regarding where you want the movie file saved.
Wait for the torrent to finish downloading the movie you chose. It may be really fast, or slow, depending on the speed of your network connection and the speed that the torrent is uploading from the person who is hosting the file. As more people start hosting the file (otherwise known as seeding), the download of that file will be faster for the next person who needs to download it.
Enjoy your new movie.
