YouTorrent

I was disappointed, and still am, that Demonoid was shutdown. It was always my best source for BitTorrent files anywhere on the Internet. After that happened I was a straggler between the Torrent search engines. I would primarily use the Pirate Bay and MiniNova, but there wasn’t one site that really felt convenient.

YouTorrent is that site. When you perform a search it scours a dozen Bittorrent websites in real time pulling in results and displaying them on your screen. The interface is slick, searches are fast, and results can be sorted by date, name, size, seeds, peers, or engine. In the sidebar you’ll also find related searches and even top searches from the site.

Since the launch just a few days ago the site has been getting hammered with tens of thousands of visitors everyday. It looks like they have some great things planned for the future, including boolean searches (support for AND, OR and + – ) and support for more BitTorrent sites. I’m extremely grateful that this site has come along, and I’ll be using it regularly!

  1. Very slick, but there’s no way to restrict searches to specific fields of interest, like games or music, nor provides any information about the torrent, something that Mininova exceeds at. May it be useful in the future, but for now, it’s very basic for my liking.

  2. Looks interesting, but I prefer [lazypirate.net] 8)

  3. Looks good. Was a little slow for me, though.

  4. I started to use this yesterday and man it is very good.

  5. I don’t think it has anything special it gets torrents through AJAX from the actual torrent search sites.

    Try [morrent.com] it has some call search featchures.

  6. I tried this search engine and am very satisfied with the results I got. Thanks for blogging about it.

  7. Refreshing looks though it is a bit slower than other popular torrent sites.

    That’s true, but I’m sure that is to come. It’s only been out like a week at this point. Generally I don’t really use the categories though.

  9. I wolud suggest a really innovative torrent finder… Look at… [multitorrent.org]

  10. Thanks for this timely info. I’m a person that likes to stick to 1 to 3 torrent sites.

  11. I like YouTorrent a lot too but [SUMOTorrent.com] is by far my favorite because the search results include the latest torrents from the all of the best sites. There is a Verified Torrent section & you can upload your own as well :)

    Uploading and downloading files from torrent sites can be dangerous not only due to downloading corrupted files; there have been successful class actions initiated by the Studios and Indie Producers Assoc. against individuals who both download and upload copyright infringing movie files – the latest case involved 60,000 users of torrent sites!

    Mininova is now clean and ViewCave is the new “international Hulu” for streaming free movies and TV shows. ViewCave offers streaming through all platforms including iPhones, iPads, mobile phones and wi-fi connected iPods; it also offers progressive download and torrents. Most illegal torrent sites are now grabbing content from ViewCave too. Here is the link: [viewcave.com]

  13. Was searching on the web for the best torrent search engine site that can search multiple websites at the same time, when I ran across your comment on demonoid and your thoughts on the best search engine. The only thing I wanted to correct you on is this…. Demonoid is alive and running very well, since it is my favorite site as well. I am on it every day. It is just a private site that requires an invitation to join them. Just wanted tolet you know. So that the rumor of demonoid being shut down doesn’t go any further.
