suggestion: torrent links on dvd downloads

Post by Kabal458 » Wed Aug 01, 2012 1:38 am

A little known feature of Amazon S3 is that you can use it as a torrent tracker just by appending "?torrent" to the end of your S3 URL.

Torrents are great for distributing very large files because it checksum's every piece transferred so you'll get no corruption once it's done (part of the reason pirates love to use this method).

Since the DVD videos are massive (largest I've seen is 1.82Gb from the Painting Academy DVD) it might be nice to provide links to the torrent versions as well.

Alternatively MD5 checksums would be handy for those of us who know how to use them.
