Working open torrent trackers (July 2022 update)

The year 2022 is passing by quickly, so I was thinking to provide you with an update to a list of free, working and foremost free and public torrent trackers that you can use in your favourite torrent downloading program.

What is a torrent tracker?

As a small reminder, let’s start with a small reminder ‘what is a torrent tracker’?

When talking about a torrent tracker, we actually mean this is a ‘node’ or even more simply a computer in the torrent network. This node is participating in the BitTorrent network and can be used by torrent uploads and downloaders for their active torrent files. A torrent tracker will ensure that both seeds and peers of a torrent file can be discovered by each other.

Actually, by default, one or more torrent trackers will be part of your torrent or magnet file. The torrent file is a metadata file which contains a number of information about your download, and so a torrent tracker (list) is part of this metadata. A torrent tracker is a very important part when downloading documents / files via a torrent program such as uTorrent or qBittorrent. Without such a tracker server, your torrent program wouldn’t now where to look for other seeds and peers so that you can start downloading from those other users who already own (a part of) the files.

What are the advantages of using a torrent tracker?

So now you know what is a torrent tracker, let’s briefly discuss what are the advantages of a torrent tracker.

First of all, a torrent tracker will help increase your download speeds. Because a torrent tracker will connect you with more seeds, you have a higher chance of finding a seed who is uploading his / her torrent file with a high upload speed. In you case, this means you can potentially download the file more quickly.

Secondly, because a torrent tracker will help your torrent program discover more seeds and peers, it will equally help to find these seeds and peers nearby. Another user who is nearby (let’s say: in the same country that you are in) will typically yield better download performance because there is less latency and package loss. If you can download from another user who is close to your location, it means you are using the BitTorrent protocol the most efficiently: this is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file-sharing protocol which is most efficient when working with peers close to your location. You may find experience your downloads start to accelerate when you are being connected with seeds and peers in your own or neighbouring countries rather than countries on the other side of the world.

How to add a list of torrent trackers to my Torrent program?

Adding one or more torrent trackers to an active torrent file is relatively easy. Yet, the steps to add them may be different depending on the operating system you use, or the torrent program of your choice. Popular torrent clients include uTorrent, Tixati, qBittorrent, Transmission or Deluge amongst others.

Here are the high-level steps to take:

  • Open your torrent download program
  • Click on the torrent for which you want to add the trackers
  • Go to the ‘Trackers‘ tab and do right-click to Add a new tracker
  • In the new window. paste the tracker list and click OK
Right-click to release the ‘Add a new tracker…’ option in the menu dialog

Paste the torrent tracker list and then click on OK to confirm
