Q: Torrent to download movies from Beijing

Hi guys, why does torrent don't function in Beijing? For example, I could download movies from thepiratebay.se from south of china, but from Beijing I can't?

What torrent sites do you use to download movies?

thanks

Just google or bing what you are searching for.  Multiple sites are available...

I use kickass torrents frequently but I guess you can find many other wesites if you just google what you are searching for and add torrent after the movie's or song's or whatever title...

the best way is to sign up to the torrent site, make few uploads by yourself and as a contributing member you will get preferential treatment..(not piratebay...i don't touch that site)
or after downloading *.torrent update/edit the torrent with trackers..(add more, as many as possible)
address (announce) are changing constantly, as the sites are being harassed by the authorities.
plus the client is important... some clients use blacklist..check if yours does. 
also your firewall and/or something like "malwarebytes" or anything along those lines might block some addresses.
but the most crucial thing are the trackers... sometimes if you look at the torrent there is only one or two trackers...not enough unless you are member... don't become member of any site that is using porno.
(if they desperate to have porno, that's mean they don't care about integrity of regular torrents..like movie which tells you to download a specific codec...a common scam)

I use torrents for specific reasons, photography and old movies from 50's, 60.s and 70's another word a rare finds...So I keep adding trackers almost daily..there are movies that i am hunting for many years with no Cigar...and i am not the only one...nostalgia i guess.
 

if you use Linux platform..there is an app called "torrent search" you can get from this site here.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/torrent-search/
(doesn't work that well on windows..dunno why) anyhow you will get thousands of results.. google/bing is a poor way to fly.

BTW. looking at the peers, China is in the premiere league along with the Saudis
(either not enough petro-dollars to buy or it is haram)

Anyhow, personally I am a scumbag ..i block all....only trusted peers.

P.S.
subscribe by email to this site, you won't find any torrents there but a lot of useful current information...

Torrents work fine here.

Maybe you have network / firewall / router issues? (blocked ports?)

I have problems with torrents sometimes. In some friends' places torrents don't download at all, I think it is something with the router or the internet provider. I use kickass as well, it is slow as hell but I just leave it over night.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
