First of all if you want to use uTorrent I suggest using version 2.2.1. Many private trackers block any version newer than this due to malicious code added to uTorrent.

I'm using Tixati and I'm pretty pleased with it. My favourite function is that you can right click on video file, Priority -> Sequential -> On and you can watch while downloading. Very Happy For some files (eg. mkv) you will have to enable "Front and Back First" too.

If you want some cross-platform, open source project you should try Deluge or Transmission.

I also found that more "recent" versions of uTorrent seem to have difficulties with creating .torrent files of bigger folders/files; I end up with an error along the lines of "ran out of memory". Didn't really jot down the exact wording because in the end I didn't care much. Tried doing some possible fixes found through Google and the uTorrent-forums, but no luck. Later found out that something in the code of uTorrent is messed up, which could be an explanation for the error I got.

Switching to qBittorrent now.

For the most part I use Free Download Manager (FDM) as it supports torrents as well as regular (direct) downloads. If you want/need a dedicated torrent program then I would suggest qBittorrent or Tixati.

I would also suggest a VPN like Windscribe to prevent your ISP from seeing what you download.

I faced the same issue today when releasing my new All in One (28.5 GB of uncompressed files organized in a folder for portability). Also trying qBittorrent!

I am VERY thankful for your tip on Windscribe, @Dracos66! I am using it whenever I need to trick websites into believing I am in another country and it's working like a charm. I am currently using the free 15 GB plan and very happy with it.

I like Windscribe so much I bought the lifetime premium plan (no limits and more servers to choose from). For most users though, the free plan is great.

Cool!!! I did not find a lifetime premium plan there. Maybe they don't have it anymore? I really liked their program, it's not intrusive, they give enough data per month for small stuff, really nice!

You have to keep your eyes open, they usually offer a lifetime plan about twice a year from what I've seen.
