Audio - Audience Completed download onto utorrent, now what??

New to this site.

I get shows on guitars101.com. For that site, I download a .rar file onto my computer. Next, I extract the files, and listen to the music on Realplayer, Limewire, or place on my Ipod. But I'm having trouble here on this site.

For this site, I saved the torrent onto my computer. I have utorrent on my computer, which I open and started downloading my file. This completed after 8 hours. Now what? How do I open the file to listen to the music.?

What the hell is a FLAC file? Realplayer does not understand this format?
I reopened the torrent (I guess) and press the green arrow, which started the seeding process (I have no idea what this means).

What am I missing? I don't understand the proceedure. It's very simple on other sites (U2star.com, guitars101, other bootleg sites, etc).

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Completed download onto utorrent, now what??

This site is a bit more, well, elaborated than crappy MP3-download-sites, thatīs for sure. For playing FLACs, use tools like Winamp or Foobar. FLAC is a lossless audio-format, more here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Lossless_Audio_Codec

guitars101 is a bullshit site whose members mostly use to alter lossless FLACs (from here or other lossless "bootleg"-sites) to lossy MP3s and refuse to fill the original uploaderīs / taperīs request that their offers may never be shared in MP3-format.

The seeding process means that you give back to other users what you downloaded (= leeched). Thatīs a good thing. Keep that up.

Thanks for your help. I will explore Winamp. But will I be able to eventually place these concerts on my iPod or burn onto a disc? And I will seed once complete, but play nicely with others.

Re: Completed download onto utorrent, now what??

you will be able to use these files to burn (as flacs if youlike) and on yer iPod (once the are converted to a readable format...apple lossless or whatever). check the FAQ and be patient it does take a bit of time to get it down and then it is second nature.
