Does anyone do torrenting without VPN?

Does anyone still do torrenting without VPN? Does VPN decrease the download speed. If so, I think I should switch to Carrytel
Thanks

VPN has a massive impact on Torrenting speed. How is that related to switching to Carrytel?

Try joining a private tracker.

That way you will not get any notices from your ISP about copyright infringements and whatnot. Which means you wont have to worry about being behind a VPN.

I personally use IPTorrents.

Private trackers are great because even with 1 seed you will still get amazing speeds.

I have Gigabit internet at home, and 1 seed on IPT easily starts downloading ~ 100Mbit/s

I can have an episode of a show downloaded in ~ 10 seconds, FULL HD movies < 2 minutes.

And yes, any VPN will always decrease your internet speed because all the traffic is being encrypted/decrypted etc.

Naturally, people torrent without a VPN. It's not like it's illegal to torrent or anything.

All the time. But it's only through an encrypted trunk to my seedbox.

You do realize that private trackers aren't safe, especially one as "public" as IPTorrents.
Any idiot can cough up $20 and get an account there.

That's only true when your internet speeds approach gigabit.
For those who aren't lucky enough to have access to gigabit and have a decent VPN, it's easy to get line speeds.

If a person just downloads by public torrent (without VPN) old media (say 2 years old or more) they are less likely to have a problem. I have no idea exactly where the line is drawn but it costs the media companies money to monitor torrents and take action, and I think they just don't bother to monitor the oldies.

If you want to avoid notices, turn of DHT, local peer discovery, peer exchange, and turn protocol encryption to Forced Outgoing and allow incoming legacy connections.
The MPAA bots and other bots do not appear to enable encryption. So they won't connect to you. These are the same settings private tracker sites usually request.

You don't generally need one with small private trackers, but you don't want to touch public trackers without protection. Technically you can also use a proxy to hide your ip address. It impacts your ability to be connectable (so does a VPN), but you get full speed. I think it's easier to detect than a VPN, but copyright trolls really don't try that hard. They hop on a torrent, and pull the list of all ip address currently sharing the file. A proxy easily disguises you from that.

IPT isn't private and it's pretty sleezy.

A couple of years ago i used to receive notices for torrenting stuff from rogers on a monthly basis.

Switched to IPT and haven't had a single complaint since.

Just read that Reddit post. damn. Damn. They don't even acknowledge that in their own IRC/Site. I lurk the IPT forums all the time and no ones ever brought that up LOL.

Time to go back to using rTorrent on my OVH VPS and rSyncing it to my media server at home.

Those private trackers are more like 0 day dump sites amd ftps of old. I use a public torrent site hut o don't download mpaa or Riaa content on those. . Mostly just obscure things or known creators Soviet Russia, I doubt they will send out cease and desist orders.

If you are afraid of copyright use Usenet. I've been using them for years and have never received a notice

It's funny when u was on distributel theu sent me notice for embarrassing pornograpgic titles which I may or may not have downloaded but with Rogers not a single peep.

if you are mainly streaming movies then there's really no use of torrenting anymore. There are soo many streaming sites out there (like putlocker and watchfree)

Am I the only one that hates streaming?
The only reason I have a sub to Netflix is because I support what they're doing.
Even if something is on Netflix I prefer my own copy.

You should try debrid. ~~$40/year

For Torrents, you only have to upload the torrent files, or magnet links, files are downloaded to their own servers (uptobox), I've seen speed as high as 20-30mb/s to, and generate direct links. I've been using this for 3-4 years, no need to worry about upload contents, leaving computers on all day all nights, or slow down computers - if any.
I also use it to download all premium links from uploaded, rapidgator, etc

Man... what a terrible website.
I'm sure the service works well but I can't see pricing until I sign up.
Even their FAQ gives a bullplop reason for it.

Is there an API or is everything loaded by hand?

This might push me over the edge.
Is there a limit to this?
I have like 100 links that I have to get through at these places.

The world is against you. I've always liked my own copy and hated streaming and have always bought my blu-rays and backed them up to hard drive (I must have over 50TB) to be played by HTPC. My turning point towards streaming would be when Netflix or other streaming has a minimum of full 1080P plus lossless audio - minimum Dolby Digitial HD and DTS-MA. I don't think it's there yet (except for the miniscule amount of 4k? - I'm not quite sure what audio they have). When that comes, I might give up having my own copies. Then physical media probably dies.

its 16.99 euro for 6 months. Try alldebrid.com. That's probably the most stable one I have used. I have tried real-debrid, same price, but it doesn't work as well.

For the torrent/magnet link, I use the chrome add-on they have, so basically just right click on the torrent link, or magnet, and choose Upload to Alldebrid. A lot of popular torrents are instantly available as other people have used their servers, so the direct links are saved.

Regarding the premium links, I don't remember being restricted to limits, but I've only used the service to download nba games or EPL football matches, so they are like 4-10GB max. I used to do more, maybe 50-100GB/day, not sure if there's change now. I haven't tried 100s of links AT A TIME, but I've done 60+ links at once, and it works.

How is it faster?
Unless you mean preing faster in which case I don't care.
The few seconds (or minutes or even hours) don't matter to me.
