Q: Does China have their own Torrent downloading site?

I've been having some problems downloading torrents recently, is there a Chinese version that will fall inside the Chinese intranet and will be faster and work well?

what part fails for you, the .torrent file, or the pirated stuff you would like downloaded using the .torrent file ? If the latter,then torrents are peer to peer and as such there is nothing you can do in terms of choosing where the pirated data originates.

They do not need torrents, they openly violate IP. They have sites where you can stream and download movies directly like vbaidu, but install it on a junk computer because it could hurt your system.

What most people do here is to install a special application, which is a glorified player/downloader with additional fluff. The application will propose a selection and then download what you pick. The problem with that is that you will get what is popular... in China.

BitTorrent works for me, but you gotta find Torrent files on a place which looks like a bay and have pirates inside.

Thanks guys. As I've mentioned before, I'm not the most technological person. So Scan, I'm not sure where it's failing. I donload the torrent file, open it in Vuze and then it says ETA - infinity.. and then it'll start but after a day it's done like 1%. The first time I tried it worked well, had a movie in about 2 hours. But now it's impossible. And like DrM says, when I stream stuff it's only some, and lately you have to pay for some of the sites (iQiYi etc).

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
