Mininova nearly dead – Alternatives for torrent files

By on November 30, 2009 in Case studies with 2 Comments

torrentMininova, one of the biggest bittorrent sites around, with nearly a billion page views last month, suddenly had to remove millions of torrent files from its database after a rule passed by a Dutch court, and every torrent user who is not approved and the infringing torrent files, are all being removed today. This will be nearly a half shut down of the website where every torrent craving user visits usually for any new release of movies, softwares, music etc.

Although Mininova is now going downside, there are some strong torrent file alternatives which can help you search for what you need. Here are the best ones –

One of the best right now is TorrentZap and ThePirateBay which have millions of torrents hosted on their server and most of them well seeded and working. For those who don’t know how to download torrent files and go to the actual source through the bittorrent clients, there is a tutorial from TPB team.
One of the best bittorrent client for mac is uTorrent which works awesome with all platforms like mac, windows and linux but I have tried it on mac and loved the interface and options.

Mininova users who are not approved but still want to run their accounts, can get them activated if they see it removed, by contacting the site team, as said by the Mininova team.
