Hello, Ive been looking on how to start a torrent for sharing, I got a Tool dvd of dimeadozen, and wanted to share it here. Wondering how i start this up. Can you guys point me to one of your helpful links? Its Tool Sacramento8-25-98 (3 cam mix). Pretty nice show, I hope this works and theres no objections to the video being shared on here.Personally, I think its the best tool dvd around. Thanks.

Cool thanks alot guys. I apreciate the help. I will definatly be on this weekend sharing this, just waiting till i have an empty uTorrent... I have comcast and im pretty sure my uploads have been limited long ago, I got good uploads fer about two weeks and now it sticks at about 40k/s for everything. do you know if changing Ip addresses will change this? One person has allready aggreed to help seed once it pops up, so it wont be completly slow, :) . Thanks alot, now i can share lots of the great Tool dvds ive been getting. You guys dont care if these have been shared on dime right, so shall i just check with the orignal posters on dime? thanks again for the speedy freakin responses, you guys are on top of this stuff, huh?

We don't mind you sharing things you have gotten from other sites. You may have to alter the text file (just write on the bottom "Added on whatever-the-date-is: Audio codec:.... Audio Bitrate:.... Video codec:....") to include some additional information that we ask for at TTD (see the Video BT Seeding Policy for a link to GSpot to show you how to easily obtain this information). It is nice to give credit to the original seeder and site.

I was able to create a checksum, and it verifys. The old one didnot verify with MD5 summer, but when the error poped up, the info.txt file was in the checksum. do i need to put all the files in checksum? Added a cover, should this and the .txt be in the md5? also what should it be named? the old MD5 was tool1998-08-25.md5. i changed the name of the old one i created, (it was auto named VIDEO_TS), and i think its working ok. ty again double A

It is usually good practice to name the checksum and text file with the bandname-YYYY-MM-DD with md5 or txt after it. That way, in case the text file gets separated from the folder, you can easily tell where it belongs. And, actually, it's a good thing to do with coverart also (although put front or back after the bandname-YYY-MM-DD).

I think md5 summer adds a couple of extra lines to the beginning of the md5 file that says "created by md5summer" or something like that and so you need to open it up in a text file, delete that line(s) and then it should verify the files. And you only need to put the contents of the VIDEO_TS file in the md5 checksum. It's OK if you do the text file and artwork, but it's the VIDEO_TS folder contents that we are interested in.

Looks like you got it up and running. Maybe you had the text or MD5 file open...?
