Downloading torrent with internet download manager or any other download managers except torrent client has been impossible for a very long time but today I am going to show you a simple trick to download torrent with internet download manager or any other download manager of your choice. For those that do not know what torrent means, I will recommend you read my earlier blog post on “Best BitTorrent Clients”. There I explained what torrents are and the different torrent clients you can use to download torrent files but today I want to show you how you can download torrent files using internet download manager IDM or any other download manager of your choice.
I know many websites and bloggers have written about how you download torrent with internet download manager using Torrific.com, I don’t know if that website still works. My trick is different and simpler though it may take a little time but it’s the easiest way for now.
How to Download Torrent with Internet Download Manager:
The method I am going to introduce to you today is a simple one, but first you may need to create a Dropbox account. If you don’t already have a Dropbox account Click here to register one for free now. You can also read my earlier blog post “Dropbox: Online file storage and synchronization” to know more about Dropbox.
Next is to create an account with Boxopus. Boxopus is a freeware online service that downloads torrent files directly to your Dropbox account. You can also use your Facebook, Twitter or Dropbox account to sign into Boxopus website. You will have to connect your Dropbox account and authenticate it.
Then go to your preferred torrent site like piratebay and download the torrent file of whatever you want to download. A torrent file is the file that contains all the necessary details of the file you want to download and this can only be read by a torrent client. Then upload the torrent file into your Boxopus account, click on the “start download” button and their system will start downloading the torrent to their server, on completion of download, Boxopus will transfer the files to your Dropbox.
A folder called “boxopus” will be created in your Dropbox account where the files will be transferred into. In some cases they may not be able to transfer the file to your Dropbox account you may have to download it directly from their server. Now you can download the file from either their server or your Dropbox account with internet download manager or any other download manager of your choice.
I know one may be wondering why don’t I simply download straight using torrent clients? The reasons are quite simple, sometimes torrents may download slowly, and the download speed may drop to zero. So many factors may affect your torrent downloads. Some internet connection forbid torrent downloads sometimes. There are endless reasons why I prefer to download my torrent files to my Dropbox account first before downloading to my computer using IDM for faster download speeds.
