    Bit torrent is file sharing or p2p protocol. It enables sharing of files easily thru the use of a torrent file. The torrent file contains meta data about the tracker and the file. The best thing abt BT is that users have to upload files simultaneously as they download ;) ...this ensures that everyone gets the file. In other p2p like kazaa it's not complusary to share but in BT its is mandatory and certain site also enforce a share ratio. A share ratio is amt uploaded:amt downoaded, this shud ideally be greater than 1, some sites wil ban you if u keep leeching and your share ratio is below 1.

    the files are split when downloading in BT and random parts are downloaded thats y you cant view partially downloaded files in Mediaplayer.
