10 Alternatives To Mininova
Written by TorrentWatcher on November 26, 2009
After nearly five years of loyal service, Mininova disabled access to over a million torrent files when it partly shut down its website. Starting today, only approved publishers are able to upload files to the site, but luckily there are plenty of alternatives and potential replacements BitTorrent users can flock to.
With an impressive 175,820,430 visits and close to a billion page views in the last 30 days, Mininova set a record that they will be unable to break in the near future. Last August a Dutch court ruled that Mininova had to remove all links to ‘infringing’ torrent files, with disastrous consequences.
Since it is technically unfeasible to pre-approve or filter every potentially infringing torrent file, the Mininova team decided to throw in the towel and only allow torrents to be submitted by approved uploaders. This move resulted in the deletion of more than a million torrents, many of which were not infringing any copyrights at all.
Thankfully, there are still plenty of alternatives for those BitTorrent users who are looking for the latest Ubuntu, OpenSUSE or Fedora release.
Below we provide a random list of public torrent sites that are still open, but there are of course hundreds more sites we could have included. If your personal favorite is missing, feel free to post it in the comments below – preferably with your reasons why it should be included in any upcoming lists.
9. The Pirate Bay

|RIP Mininova!! But I prefer EXTRATORRENTS! ;-)|
|lol, it will take time for people to figure out all the little touches , like language flags, that make ET such a superior site to ALL!!!! I am excited that we are getting all these new members too. They will surely bring torrents with them and make ET as big of a database as mininova became. ET is already VERY large but the TV section is just starting to grow since ET's rippers seem to specialize in HIGH QUALITY blu ray rips and such.|
Lets all party and celebrate the new members. Here is to new beginnings!!!
|@ Elvega, we do actually. You'll see a flag next to each torrent specifying the language IF the uploader specifies it.|
|I reckon the two sites that are going to grab is this one.. ET and over at mininova forum there are leaning towards TZ.. Torrentzap. Cheers!|

|this website is the best the way its set out the quality of the torrents and comments and now television shows on the side, keep up the good work because this is awesome|
|With the group of people that are contributing to ET and the knowledgeable admins and mods this site will be huge,perhaps #1.There is something for EVERYONE on this site thanks to the fact that there is not alot of restriction as far as what us uploaders are allowed to post,I should know because I've already put up a couple that have got banned on lesser sites lol.Also the easy to use lay-out of the site as well as the fact that you can put screen shots up on your upload pages as well as trailers for the upload,alot of sites don't have those features.Bottom line,ET is ahead of the game and as long as there are steps taken forward and with consideration to the members(wich has always been the case from what I can see)then ET will always be moving in a bigger,positive,direction.ET IS the place to be!|
|ET is definitely the best out there.|
|RIP Mininova...had some good times...until I learned of ExtraTorrentz! ET = #1 in my book|

|Even if torrentfreak.com placed ET on a â€œrandom listâ€ as #4 I still think that it should be #1. Nice article OBS always a pleaser reading them. ;-)|

|I didn't have too much trouble with Mininova, and they became my default torrent search after Demonoid crashed. Demonoid had been my home for like 3-4 years I think, since around when I started with torrents. The only problem I really had at Mini was a torrent that had a password I could never get because the site they said to go to was down. I got on a few other weird ones, like a torrent with everyone at stuck at 99% I just deleted it without downloading. Another thing is, they had too many private torrents, wasting your look time. I wasted a few hours, but all in all great stuff, and that's where I found out about DJ Icemoon, and his stuff is great.|
I found out about this site through Zeropaid, alternatives to Mininova.
|up up extratorrent.. i hve seen that when i was using mininova it has the excat movie list of extratorrent movie list.. so i hope i did not lose movelist of mininova|

|i only came to ET after mininova went the same way as PB.|
I must say i am greatly impressed, as much to say i am actually glad mininova went under so to get me out there and discover other great sites, this is truely a great torrent site,
the site admins, downloads speeds and even the users far surpass what i have been used to over the last few years, what a great site.
Mininova may be gone (but not forgotten) but ET is everything and more than i want/need.
I would go as far to say if the nova was relaunched tomorrow i would still prefer this brand of vodka now,
long live ET!!!!
