Opentrackers.org does not condone breaking Private Tracker rules!

Breaking Tracker Rules can lead to Permanent Bans.. Acquire Invites Legitimately or Not At All!

This includes (but is not limited to): Ratio Cheating, Invite Selling, Invite Trading, Account Selling, Account Stealing, Bonus Point Selling and Seeking Invites outside of Official Means (Official Recruitment Threads, Internal Tracker User-Class Restricted Forums, Officially Allowed Giveaways, Friends, etc)

Finding Publicly Tracked Torrents

I have noticed many people looking for publicly tracked torrents, but being unable to find them (or simply not trying to look)

I have written this guide to help people find publicly tracked torrents


Be wary of Publicly Tracked Torrents inherent insecurity!

Copyright Troll Companies monitor IP Addresses in the swarms of Publicly Tracked Torrents (The Pirate Bay, KAT, EZTV, etc) in order to send DMCA/Copyright Infringement Letters/etc to Internet Service Providers/Universities/etc

Most Universities ban P2P and strongly monitor their networks for evidence of Piracy

Having repeated violations (DMCA, notification of piracy, etc) can lead to serious consequences from your ISP/University/etc (warnings, bandwidth throttling, account termination, expulsion, etc)

Anyone using Publicly Tracked Torrents should seriously consider using a VPN

Using a VPN will disguise your IP Address, encrypt your internet traffic and hide the fact that you are using Bittorrent from anyone monitoring you (your ISP, your university, etc)

or.. consider switching entirely to Private Torrent Trackers (while possibly using a seedbox to avoid bans on P2P)

There is little to no evidence that Copyright Trolls have ever targeted the IP Addresses in the swarms of Private Torrent Trackers

There is a major difference between a Publicly Tracked Torrent Index (TPB, KAT, EZTV, etc) and a Public Torrent Tracker (OpenBitTorrent, PublicBitTorrent, istole.it, etc)

There are major differences between Publicly Tracked Torrent Indexes and Private Torrent Trackers

Read about the differences between the following

wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_index (site)
wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_tracker (tracker)
wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_tracker#Public_trackers (public tracker)
wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_tracker#Private_trackers (private tracker)



I recommend using one of these 2 Bittorrent Clients



Other clients that are often whitelisted (not banned) by Private Torrent Trackers: libtorrent, Ktorrent, qBittorrent, Transmission

I do not recommend using any other clients (Vuze, BitComet, BitLord, etc)

Nearly all other clients are unstable, inefficient and/or malicious


Use a combination of these 3 steps

1) Search on Google (search for the name of the content + torrent)


Here is an example of this process > google.com

2) Search a multi-search like Torrentz.eu or Torrentproject.com


Here is an example of this process > torrentz.eu


Here is an example of this process > metasearch.torrentproject.com


Here is an example of this process > torrentproject.com

Alternate Torrent Search Engines
tornado.li > torrentus.to


3) Search Public Torrent Indexes individually

Here is an example of this process > thepiratebay.se

Here is another example of this process > eztv.it

Here is another example of this process > publichd.se


Torrentz.eu also has a fairly comprehensive list of the most popular ones

(from: torrentz.eu/help#indexed)

Tips for Searching more Efficiently

1) Be as specific as possible with keywords

2) When looking for specific content, limit the keywords to the most central word(s)

3) Sort by size, date, peers (popularity)

4) Search for the content by itself and inside a large pack

5) If there are multiple releases with the same name from different years, include the year
