Re: fingerprints created under mac needed

# Open xACT
# Hit the checksum tab
# Hit the add button and navigate to the folder you have the files in - for a DVD, the VIDEO_TS folder
# Select all the files (select first file, shift/select last file from list) - for a DVD, all the VOB, IFO, and BUP files
# Click Add files
# Then click the checksum button in xACT window and select md5, and then standard
# Navigate again to the folder to be torrented and Save (I also change the name from the default md5sum.md5 to something more appropriate, keeping the md5 extension, of course)

That's it. Then, to put the checksums into the thread, just open the md5 file with your text editor and copy/paste it into the thread.
