6 votes pizzaiolo — 6 votes, 10 commentsSource

The following is a copy of a deleted post on Reddit, but it’s so great it needs to be elsewhere too:

Ok, so I always wondered why this subreddit didn’t just have a stickied megathread with a bunch of useful information a perhaps a FAQ section. I mean, it seems like every second day there is a new post asking about the best torrent client, or the best streaming site. So here is my attempt of making just that, a general page with everything I could think of!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Best Torrent Clients (Subjective)

  1. Deluge

  2. Qbittorrent

  3. Utorrent 2.2.1 (Make sure not to use newer version/update past 2.2.1)

  4. Flud (android) btw there is a paid version of the app which removes the ads. I’m sure you guys can find… ahem ‘a better way’ of getting that version.

Honourable Mentions: Transmission, Tixati, rTorrent

Best VPN Services Source 1, Source 2

  1. Private Internet Access ($40 per year)

  2. ExpressVPN ($100 per year)

  4. Free Options: Betternet, VPN Gate, Opera Browser, Cyber Ghost, Tunnel Bear

Here is an in depth guide to VPN selection that all those considering getting a VPN should look at. Have a look at this site as well while you’re at it.

NOTE: Lnks for a few of the sites have been intentionally not included as posting them would violate one of the subreddits rules.

If I have left anything out, feel free to tell me in the comments and I will add it on. If any of the information is wrong, I apologise and will change it as soon as I find out. That is all ENJOY!!

p.s. I went a little crazy with the editing in this, idk I was kinda bored. If you peoples want a more simple layout I can remove all the crazy lines.

Why “deleted”? Seems like a very nice post

How about making an awesome-piracy instead?

A lot of proprietary shit here, yo.

yeah, well… the title is “piracy” after all, and it comes from reddit…

Was thinking more about the software used for piracy, I personally wouldn’t recommend µtorrent, for example. https://torrentfreak.com/utorrent-quietly-installs-riskware-bitcoin-miner-users-report-150306/

I have no quarrels with people wanting to pirate movies and music, maybe even games, but I still think there are better options than pirating proprietary software, a good example there would be Gimp vs. Photoshop.

Good post. Thanks, pizza.
