View Full Version : Torrent file size for Blu-ray too big

I'm trying to post an audience-shot Blu-ray. The file size is just under 25gb. I've tried three different clients (Transmission, uTorrent and Azureus/Vuze) and they all produce a 236kb torrent file which seems too large to upload. I keep getting the message "Uploading File(s) - Please Wait" but nothing happens no matter how long I wait. :rolleyes:

The last Blu-ray I uploaded, the file size was 19gb and the torrent file was 196kb. Perhaps 200kb is the limit?

Not sure how to proceed... any suggestions welcome.

make your .torrent file smaller.


there is a setting, when hashing, to set the number of pieces or similar. Less pieces = less hash strings = smaller torrent file.

I experimented with several different clients. It seems the default piece size for most clients is 2048kb which in my case led to a torrent file of 236kb. In uTorrent I was able to double the piece size to 4096kb which resulted in a torrent file of 120kb which was fine.

Larger piece size = fewer pieces = less hash strings (whatever that means) = smaller torrent file

Thanks!
