Create a Personal Content Channel in BitTorrent 8 Video Transcript
The latest version of BitTorrent contains a nifty new feature that makes it easier than ever to create torrents and share files with a personal group of friends or colleagues. Hi, I'm Seth Rosenblatt, for CNET, and today I'm going to show you how to create a Personal content channel in BitTorrent 8. First off, make sure you're running BitTorrent 8. Next, hit the Discover button on the left. This part isn't essential, but I'm showing it to you because this is where pre-existing legal content channels are showcased, including popular series like the TED educational lectures and legally shared music and movies. It's a good place to get some ideas of the kinds of files you can share on your content channel. Next, go to the My Files button on the right. If you haven't created a channel, this section will be blank. It's a little hard to see, but click the gray arrow just to the left of the My Files button and the Personal Channel wizard will open. Fill in your name, channel title, and upload an avatar to customize it. You can actually come back and do those steps later if you like. To add files to Share, hit the More Content tab, click Browse for File, and navigate to the files that you own the rights to. Once added, you can write a note about the file, choose people to share the link to the torrent with over e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook, and engage in conversations with those friends directly from the BitTorrent interface. This is a great tool for sharing high-resolution audio and video files that you own without having to reduce the file size first. The Personal content channel can be an excellent way to privately and quickly share highschool's sports team videos, project documents, and other files both large and small. However, as you can see, while BitTorrent may help you share your files with your friends or family, they are still free to comment as they see fit. Sometimes, there's just no accounting for taste. And that's how you create a Personal content channel in BitTorrent 8. For CNET, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.
