We’ll have more questions and answers as soon as we start getting some questions from the community, so ask away! Email us at kademlia at frostwire.com.
How do I download?
A lot of the content we feature on this blog can be downloaded using a torrent file. Torrents are little pointers to the actual content, therefore you need to have a software that can download the actual files to your computer. We of course recommend FrostWire. You can download it here for free.
If you’re using FrostWire on windows, once you open it, you can drag the Torrent Link from Frostclick.com inside the FrostWire window and the download will start automatically.
You can also:
COPY the torrent URL of the File you want to download (right click on the link->click Copy Link Location), then go inside FrostWire go to the File menu and click on “Download .Torrent or .Magnet”
PASTE the torrent URL then press OK. Your download will start soon after that.
If you are on Mac, just click on the “Download Torrent” link and download it to your computer. FrostWire will open automatically and download the content for you. If for some reason FrostWire doesn’t open, just drag and drop the .torrent file into the FrostWire window.
Sometimes the link on top of the post will say “Download Album”, “Download Movie” or “Download Zip”. If it does, you just click on the link and the file will be downloaded to your default location on your computer.
Rarely we will link to the download page of the original content creator. We do it because there is a choice in what software version or album format you could download and we would like to leave that choice to you. If you have problems finding the download link of any of the content we feature, please leave a comment below the post and we’ll make sure to help you as soon as we can.
Why should I use .torrents?
Torrents help you download the exact content you want from multiple people who already have it on their computers and are willing to share it. Because the files will get to you from multiple sources, most of the time they will download a lot quicker than from one location.
Another important thing to consider is the content creator’s bandwidth. If you download files directly from a website, the owner of that website has to pay for the bandwidth you use up. It usually doesn’t cost much, but for an emerging musician sometimes every penny counts. By downloading the content using a .torrent file, you connect to other people on the P2P network, not a website directly.
Is all your content free & legal?
Yes. Most of the content we feature is covered under the Creative Commons license. It means that the content creators own the copyrights for their works, but they are OK with everybody sharing their content for free. If the content is not under CC license, the author either gave us the permission to feature it on our website and give it to you for free or has explicitly stated so on his/her website, so download away!
How do I submit my Content for Promotion?
