If you are not very familiar with torrents then it is very easy to download them using Opera web browser. The .torrent files are configuration files that list a group of smaller files that need to be downloaded to create the larger file you are trying to obtain. The great thing about using Opera for torrents is the fact that you don’t have to be very familiar with the configuration of a more complex file you can simply click on the .torrent file and Opera will do the rest after you tell it the directory to download the torrent to.

Please note that when downloading torrents other people can use your bandwidth to also download the torrents from you. When you are done downloading the torrents make sure to close Opera or your bandwidth will continue to be used to download the files you have downloaded.

Download Torrents Using Opera:

Typically you will see a link that allows you to configure a torrent configuration file typically ending in .torrent. With other torrent applications you would load this .torrent configuration file and the downloads would then begin. Using Opera you can simply click on the link for the .torrent file, Opera will ask for the download directory, and then the download will begin. Below is an example of Opera asking for the download directory for a .torrent download to begin.

Opera Torrent Download Directory:

After you specify the download directory the bits of the file will begin to download and at the end of the downloads will be assembled into the file you are trying to obtain. The process moves pretty quick. Below is an example of a file being downloaded via a torrent configuration file.

Once the progress bar completes the file will be available in the directory specified. Again make sure to close the Opera browser tabs with the torrent download or others will continue to download using up your bandwidth.

    Is it possible to switch file-checking off? Normally, my Opera does this every time I begin, resume, or complete a torrent download. For larger torrents, this takes a while (10-15 min), and also loads the disk a lot.

    Hello James,

    I don’t believe so as I think what you are talking about is Opera figuring out the best way to download the file you are downloading. For instance Opera must figure out what servers are available, etc. and it must be doing some form of calculation to see how many torrent servers are available and what the size of the files are on those torrent servers. 10-15 minutes does seem like an awfully long time for this to take place though so maybe I am misunderstanding what you are talking about. Do you have an example torrent that you are downloading that takes this long to get started or resume? Also could you provide the specs of the computer you are using to download the torrents? The only other thing I could think of right off is if the computer you are using is extremely slow and/or old or possibly running lots of other tasks during the time in which you are starting or resuming the torrent download.

    Thanks.

    ___________________________________

    When you download a torrent file’s object file, click on BitTorrent Preferences and test the incoming listen port. If that works, I don’t know what to tell you. But if not, in your Windows or Linux firewall, use that listen port to add ports for Opera Torrent TCP and Opera Torrent UDP. Also, in your router setup, under NAT and Port Forwarding, add a forward for Opera using the incoming listen port for Port From and Port To. Select both protocols, TCP and UDP. For “IP Address,” use the address of your router (usually 192.168.1.1 but not always). Check “Enable”, then apply your router settings and save.

    With a hole punched in your firewall and router to accommodate BitTorrents on Opera, it should work. But then again, I did that myself, and my Opera browser still doesn’t download torrents either.
