A new service allowing you to burn any online hosted file into torrent is called Burnbit. The application will be very useful for people willing to share heavy files with many users, at high speeds and not consuming too much bandwidth. Since the torrents lead to a file hosted somewhere in the Internet, the file will never die out and always be accessible.
Many of you have probably had a desire to share a film or other large file with your family, friends and classmates at the certain moment of your life. But a regular hosting account was either too slow, or limited in bandwidth provided. The only way out is BitTorrent, allowing you to quickly share any file among lots of people effortlessly. All you need to do is to create a torrent, then host it and keep it seeded when users want to download it. This can be done more conveniently when you use Burnbit.
New service called Burnbit was launched a few days ago. It was designed for people searching for an easy and efficient way to share files using BitTorrent while not consuming much bandwidth. Burnbit users just upload them to a hosting server and then create torrents, which can be shared with the public. Both seeders and leechers have advantages in this case: seeders can save precious bandwidth, while lechers are always able to access the file since it is mirrored online.
Although the system is nothing new, Burnbit still has some extra advantages. First of all, it is very straightforward but not complicated – the user will only have to click once to create a torrent file ready to share. The application site will also host it and create a download button you are able to insert into blog or website. Besides, Burnbit allows to track different stats, such as the number of seeders and leechers.
The only major drawback of Burnbit is that all the files are now public. You can’t make a file private, so that it won’t be a good idea to share a private photo archives or videos with the rest of the planet. Also no custom description can be added to the burned files.
However, Burnbit is currently taking suggestions from the user to improve the service, so the thing about privacy should be on a waiting list. Currently the website indexes around 150,000 files. All of them have been categorized, but you are able to add your own categories for files you want to upload.
