Before I proceed let’s quickly look at some terminologies in the world of Torrents’, what does torrent & co mean and why are they so heavy?
GETTING STARTED | THE TERMINOLOGIES
According to my dictionary; Torrent are ‘large amount or stream of something. Therefore I’d say, torrent files are usually very large files that are shared using a peer to peer network. These files could span largely from Music, Music albums, Movie Series, Games, Softwares and much more.
A user’s share ratio for any individual torrent is a number determined by dividing the amount of data that user has uploaded by the amount of data they have downloaded.
In torrent, a tracker is a server that keeps track of which seeds and peers are in the swarm.
A Seeder or Seed is a is a peer that has an entire copy of the torrent and offers it for upload. The more seeders there are, the better the chances of getting a higher download speed.
A peer is a BitTorrent client running on a computer on the Internet to which other clients connect and transfer data.
A leech is a client who is downloading the file from the network i.e. the ones who download the files but avoid having them as a seed ,thus affecting the over all share-ratio.
Before downloading a Torrent video read this;
These are the various video qualities you should consider before you go ahead to select a Video Torrent to download.
A CAM is actually a theater rip usually done with a digital video camera. These are usually of worst quality and first to be released by pirates as soon as the movie is released in theaters. Sound quality are usually very poor because they are taken from the on board microphone of the camera. In these kind of video format, the distortion in sound and picture quality can be very conspicuous.
A pre-release VHS tape, these are VHS that’s are sent to rental stores, and various other places for strictly promotional use. A screener is supplied on a VHS tape, and is usually in a 4:3 (full screen) , although letter boxed screeners are sometimes found. Some of these kind of videos are quite big and depending on the equipment used, screener quality can range from excellent if done from a master copy, to very poor if done on an old VHS recorder through poor capture equipment on a copied tape.
These usually contain no special feature. R5 relates to a Region 5 DVD format created by the movie industry to help combat pirates, as well as tags used by movie pirates for distribution on the Internet. The movie industry created this format in efforts to help prevent piracy by producing higher quality Telecine transferred movies than pirates can offer on the Internet. This higher quality is achieved by the use of professional grade film transfer devices as opposed to lesser quality equipment obtainable by movie pirates.
A telesync video quality is quite the same as a CAM, the only difference being that its recorded using an external audio device usually an audio jack.
A copy of the final released DVD, apparently they are one of the best because they are usually of good picture and sound quality.
This term is used to describe something that has been recorded from a subscription channel or from PRE-AIR Satellite feeds.
BR-RIP or BDRip
A BDRip/BRRip is a file that contains content that was sourced from a Blu-ray Disc product. These are usually encoded, with very good sound and excellent picture quality.

However, these terminologies aren’t too useful if you are the leech, you just dash straight to downloading and leave the video uploading to those that care much more for you the leech.
