FAQ

Is it possible to download Torrent with few or no seeds?


You can only download content of a Torrent if there is someone seeding. The seeder also needs to have 100% of the content for you to fully download. The more seeders the faster it goes, if no one is seeding - then you won't get any download speed at all.

Note: even if the trackers show no data, you may still be able to find seeders using DHT and PEX.

There's a thread for making a reseed request:
Thread: RESEED - I need Seeders or a Re-Seed PLEASE! V3

If the torrent wasn't indexed and it states the original uploader you can also send a polite PM asking if they can seed it.

As a last resort, you can look for members who rated or commented on the torrent, which implies that they downloaded it, and you can ask them if they could seed the old torrent.

Even the torrents I am seeding show 0 seeders. I wonder why?
Either the trackers take time to scrape the seed count or the website has bug, so nothing shows, this is actually due to several factors, if you search the community, sure you'll find the answer.

Do webseeds act as 'peers' ? Most people download torrents with atleast 1 seed. I can't seed my torrents all the time so I wonder if adding a webseed would show a '1 seeder'.
You might find your answer as well as few useful tips here: FAQ: What are "web seeds" and how do I use it?

but. i did download a movie last week with 0 seeds
This probably needs a little re-wording as the statistics shown on KAT aren't updated in real-time; it may simply be that when KAT scraped the tracker it had an error, or there wasn't any seeds, but now there is.

Hi,
any idea why when I try to access this link that people have posted here, I get the message below?

I've realized that seeding your own uploaded torrent requires a huge amount of patience for a first. sleepy
