Direct download links are usually welcomed, but sometimes they don’t work as expected. For example when the link does not have resume support or when the target server is sending the file at a super slow speed that the download never finishes. In such situations, converting the direct download link into a torrent file can be a life saver as torrent will not be depending on the speed of the sending server and it can be paused/resumed too. Hence you get more reliable download with faster speeds.
Burnbit – Free Tool to Burn Direct Links into Torrents
Burnbit is a free online tool which burns direct download links into torrent files. As long as a file has a direct access URL which does not require authentication, Burnbit will take care of it and provide you with a .torrent equability in a couple of minutes. Here’s how to use it in easy steps:
- Copy the direct URL of the file to your clipboard.
- Open burnbit.com and paste the URL in the big bar on the burnbit page.
- Click on Burn and wait for a while for the files to be transferred and the .torrent file being created.
- Download the .torrent file and open it with the BitTorrent downloader of your choice (uTorrent works good).
If the file already exists in their database and a .torrent was previously generated, you can get the .torrent file even more quickly as Burnbit will not be needed to burn it again.
P2P + Client-Server When you burn a file, you are making a .torrent equivalent of the file that’s powered by both the server(s) hosting the file (HTTP Web seed) as well as all the regular peers that are downloading it using Bittorrent. We combine both worlds to make your downloads lightning fast.
