  • Create torrent from torrent file

    Hello
    I'm wondering if its possible to make a torrent from a .torrent file. Basicallyl I dont have the actual content, the movie, but can i make a new torrent file from a .torrent file downloaded from piratebay(e.g.)?
    Thanks
    L.E.: The new torrent will be shared on a public tracker.

      Lets say there is a new torrent file(new.torrent) and a piratebay file(pirate.torrent).
      When people download the new.torrent, i want them to download the content that is in pirate.torrent.
      So if pirate.torrent file has a movie, i want them to have the specific movie after they download "new.torrent".
      Basically just want to share/seed "pirate.torrent" on another public tracker without having to host the actual movie which is in the "pirate.torrent" :D
      Dont know if that makes any sense lol :D

        Yes this is possible.

        Just create the torrent of the contents and go from there.

          You will need to use a torrent client to create a new .torrent file. Here's a link to a tutorial i made that will show you how to do it, the entire video won't apply to you unless your using OSX so just start the video at the 4 minute mark and it will show you how to create a .torrent file using vuze.

            Thanks but in your video you still had to have the archive and files on your hdd.
            What im trying to say is to make a torrent off of another torrent's content, without actually hosting the content on my hdd xD

                So you want to create a new torrent without having to have that torrents content?

                Well that'd be the ultimate ratio creator - methinks it's very unlikely.... If anyone has a way to actually do it I'd give it a go on my non core trackers.

                  Can you connect remotely(have ssh access) to the computer that's hosting the files that you want to use to create the .torrent file?

                    Thats the point i dont want to fill up my hdd :D
                    The thing is I want so that my torrent will have the content another torrent has. So the files from torrent1(original torrent) are hosted on a seeder computer(original creator of original torrent, and the rest of the seeders i guess, the ones who downloaded torrent1), and the new torrent(torrent2) will have the content torrent1 has but i will be the seeder and the contents will not be hosted on my computer.
                    So like somehow re-share torrent1(its contents) but making it my own torrent and adding public trackers to it without having to host the content of torrent1 on my computer.
                    Seems impossible now that i read it better lol

                      What you want to achieve can't be done.

                      For creating a torrent file you should have the exact content what you want to share.

                      BTW if you are downloading the torrent from a public tracker and also uploading on a public tracker then why not just upload the original torrent file.

                        Because I need to download the files before I can seed them, so it still takes space on my hdd :(
                        Maybe make a torrent from hash or magnet link, without having downloaded the files and seed it like that? :D
                        Idk, i guess ill just have to get the files and then seed them :)
                        Thanks tough

                            You can add the torrent to your client (without downloading it)
                            then rightclick > copy Magnet URL >
                            then share that link or make a torrent from it (google) so ppl can download that torrent through DHT

                            remember that the torrent has to be a public torrent (DHT is enabled) otherwise no one will be able to download it

                            You can even add more public trackers by adding

                            &tr=tracker url

                            to the end of that link

                              If it were easily possible we'd all have infinite ratios on trackers. and if it's possible but not widely known - my guess is nobody will tell.

                              Your best bet in reducing used disk space is to cross seed - worked nicely for me in the past few weeks . ie. 1 torrent - multiple trackers.
