There are many ways to download movies, music, books, and software for free. Torrent streams are arguably the most popular way to do it. But sometime it’s very cramp breaking when we are trying to download and we either get a very low speed or a dead torrent due to the swarm having no seeds, not enough peers to cover the full release, or the trackers going down.

Torrent Tracker help client like (Utorrent, BitTorrent, Transmission) to communicate with additional seeds and peers for increasing the Downloading speed of the file.

Wondering how?

The speed of download depends on the number of seeds and peers and quality bandwidth it has.

In Detail about Torrent Trackers

Torrent trackers is a server that communicates between two peers to transfer file by using BitTorrent protocol. Trackers will always keep a complete record of like the number of leeches, seeds, peers, size, files that are in the torrent and a number of downloads.
If we add more public or private tracker, client communicate with those torrent tracker to increase the speed of the download by updating more addition connection with the peers.
So to increase to downloading speed of weak torrent. We will add additional public or private tracker for increasing torrenting speed in software like Utorrent etc.
