I hope this is the right place, if not please don't delete this, please move it to a suitible catagory, thank you.

Anyway I hear a lot about Torrents and I even tried to download one but as usual it says it can't open because windows doesn't know where the file came from or something like that. Is there something I have to install to make it work? and is it free?

You have to use a program called Utorrents, azureus, Bitcomet and then use these programs to open the file you want, and they will download it for you.

Yes its free

basically what FTO said
the [filename.torrent] is just the file used by the bit torrent program to download whatever file you intended to download

a tip when searching for what to download..look for ones with plenty of seeders (10+ should suffice) because without them, you'll never get the complete file

*seeders = people who have 100% of the file
*leechers = people who have 0-99.9% of the file

*there are no torrents here at crunchyroll...everything here is streamed

do a google search of torrent+whatever you're looking for

Well you have to download a client.

utorrent
http://www.utorrent.com

azureus
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

For other clients check Wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_BitTorrent_software

Read any faqs you can for bittorrent before you download or you'll face terrible speeds. Try to get familiar with your internet settings first.
