How to Convert Torrent into Direct Download?

How does Torrent Work?

A copy of the file is derived from the originating server (seed) which is available to a vast number of users to download. The file is then split up into bits of lumps. Each client works as both the seed and the leech for a torrent which means each of those clients upload their  lump of the file to other clients while simultaneously downloading bits of the file they don’t have from others.

[highlight ]The shortcoming of this process is that too many leeches get attached to a single peer, meaning the transfer rate gets diminished while providing the lumps of file to too many clients resulting in hindrance for other patrons trying to download the same file.[/highlight]

[highlight ] To counter this short coming, we can convert the torrent into a direct download link, so as to help ourselves save most of the time waiting for proper online seeds.[/highlight] What happens is when we convert a file through a website, the file is downloaded on the website’s server and then we are provided with the direct link of the file hosted from their servers.
