info_hash is the 20 byte sha1 hash of the bencoded form of the info value from the metainfo file. Note that this is a substring of the metainfo file. Torrents have an info_hash or and torrent hash that represents the torrent as a whole with all its files (it’s actually a hash of the “info” section of the original torrent file), and is calculated using SHA1 encryption. I know the technical bit is not interesting, but a little introduction won’t harm. So today I will show you how to download files using info_hash just in case you don’t come across a magnet link in the torrent page that has your file.
It all started when I wanted to add more albums to my music Library. As a good “googler”, I searched for the name of the album and added the word “torrent” to be specific to the search engine. To my shock, the file was listed in a torrent site which was new to me. Going deep, No Magnet link….Now what? Went through the page and came across “info_hash”. Looked intriguing to me. Looked it up and life became easy as it will for you.
Follow these steps:
I. Go to the Online Magnet Link Generator:
Tip: When you see that the file your looking for has no seeders, Copy and Paste the info_hash into the search engine input box and look through the results for the ones that have seeders. As shown below:
The above site has no seeds, so I looked through other links on the results page of the search engine and got the below one which had at least a seeders.
VI To download the files, follow the instructions on this page on this blog: Downloading Torrents Without a Torrent Client but with IDM
