    Torrents

    Does anyone know how I can download the start of a movie using Bittorrent or Utorrent?

    Obviously a torrent program when it downloads a movie, takes little pieces of the film and then they gradually all form the file. I want to be able to only download the first few seconds or minutes of the film so I can check its quality.

    I'm sure there is a way but I'm stumped at the min.

    get VLC player, it will play avi files, even if you only have bits of the file, and can also play from archive files.

    You cant force a torrent to just download the first part, thats not how torrents work.

    If you download a decent torrent, there should be a 15mb sample file with it that you can downlaod first.
