BitTorrent Help.

Postby BronXBombers51 » Mon Jul 31, 2006 10:49 am

Alright, I'm a beginner to BitTorrent and I'm trying to figure things out as I go. I downloaded BitTorrent yesterday and then downloaded the files from a concert that happened a couple days ago.

Now what do I do with the files? Do I have to convert them to WAV or MP3? I eventually want these files burnt to a CD and also on my IPod.

How do I convert these files? What program should I use? Anyone have any insight on this? Thanks.

Just wanted to add that the folder I downloaded contains 2 Text Documents and 17 FLAC files (the songs from the concert I assume).

Not sure what it means, but I thought it might be important. :*)

FLAC is a type of lossless audio file, meaning very good quality. The text files are the setlist I'm guessing. If you want to put it on your iPod, you're going to need a FLAC to mp3 converter. I just put that into google and it looks like this site has one.

Newb!

j/k

Yea you will need to convert those. Try not to download FLAC as its super high quality and way bigger then you will need if you just are using it for Mp3 listening.

Also, Make sure you open the correct ports on your router if you have one it can speed up bit torrent alot
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I hate FLAC files; their size and incompatability aren't really made up for in their audio quality.

I'm in the process of converting them to MP3 files now. Thanks for the help.

Quick question...can I delete the FLAC files once I have the files copied as MP3s?
