    Hi,

    I think this is my first share here. Not a big one, but might help some newbies make their first Dollars.

    I used this method until about 6 month's ago, and when i was actively using it, i made quite good money (>$100 on good days)

    Everyone should know the basic method: Upload "leaked trailers" or full movies (better!).
    But instead of making a password protected .rar archive, which is detected by torrent sites, we do it different. Simply create a video file long enough/big enough with your favorite Video editing software (Camtasia,...). Make the whole Screen black and add text to the middle of the video that says "INVALID CODEC! This video Requires the XXX-Codec to play. Please download it from http://shortened.link/XXX-Codec.zip". Just change the "XXX-Codec" with some made up codec name like "Haswel-Codec". The link Points to your PPD locked file (Or your PPI File). Create also a readme with the torrent named "Readme.txt" where you just paste in the same text as in the video. (This is optional).

    Now submit your .torrent files to sites like kat.ph and TPB.

    Dringerbest made quite a good thread about everything torrent related (except the video part, don't .rar your files!): http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/torrents/322421-how-i-made-90-3-days-torrents.html

    Even if i did not use this the last 6 month (Too much work for me, and i have SEO'd a website which earns me now), i'm sure that this still works. The advantage of the codec trick is that the .torrent files will stay up much, much longer at the torrent sites than the password protected .rar archive Method, as it seems pretty legit.

    Tips:
    - Make sure the filesize is believable - A full-length HD movie does not have 10Mb! The file should have something between 10-18GB! Don't worry too much about too big files, after a day or two you should have spread it enough so that others are uploading too.
    - Copy the title from other popular torrent. Change them only a bit.
    - Do a lot of different movies with different accounts
    - Don't give up too fast It takes some time until people have downloaded the file. THIS IS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE! The first people might have waited hours if not days for the file, if they see the Codec Message, they are very likely to do the survey to get it.
    - Use a link shortener that allows to change the link! Even better your own domain, so you can change links if you need to

    As said, this requires some work. It requires a bit patience (a few days), a good internet connection and a seedbox or something that can run 24/7, but it works.

    Maybe someone of you can make his first bucks with this.
    Enjoy

    You might make a little bit with PPI doing this but i doubt PPD. I also doubt the torrent would stay up any longer than a couple hours, those mods on those torrent sites have nothing better to do than just sit and fuck with you

    PPD works. I monetized it with PPD.
    Couple of hours, sometimes a few days. This is enough to get 1k+ downloads on a movie if it's popular

    So I have spend the last 2 days with research and some initial coding. Nothing seeded yet, but goal is to automate everything except account creation. I'm a total noob in blackhat and will give progress report here if you don't mind.

    Tips so far:

    1. I think it should be possible to seed 1TB from 50GB VPS.
    a) In case the fake video file is always the same you can work with symlinks (I use rtorrent client which supports symlinks). Of course you have to add additional files to the torrent or vary with the readme.txt to make sure the torrent hash is always different.
    b) Best is obviously to have same fake video but with varied size (10GB for movieA, 8.5GB for movieB etc.). With some linux skills/research you should be able to compose a symlink which only refers to a part of another file...

    2. I guess conversions would be better if duration of fake video in VLC/MediaPlayer matches the file size/content, or even exact duration if you know it (google moov atom, possible with 1.B)...

    3. Rate your torrent somewhere without any account (proxies might come in handy though).

    4. Run 1 rtorrent instance on every CPU core for better performance (can start instance in background with screen command).

    Question
    As total noob, which PPD or PPI network should I use? Don't have website yet. Basically I want to order domain, then redirect to PPI or PPD..

    Seems like a good idea. I'm going to try it out. I think people are smart these days and will comment about it and tell people not to download? Hope not...

    I hate downloading torrents like this. lol. Good trick though - how often would you have to repost torrents because they were removed?
