How can I download Torrents using an info_hash with µTorrent?

Aksgan June 25, 2011

I have started using µTorrent to download torrents. Using its built in search seems simple enough, but how do I download if I have info_hash of a file, e.g. from isohunt or any other website? I have a 2mbps net connection, will downloading be slow?

    Use “Add URL” in your torrent client and add url
    (replace INFOHASH with your info hash).

    Once you've found the torrent you want, click on "download .torrent" in the top left. A dialog box will popup asking you what to open the .torrent with, choose Utorrent (C:Program FilesUtorrentUtorrent.exe)

    You don't need to do anything special with the hash file. Download the files that are associated with the hash file, then use a tool such as MD5 Checker (see below) to scan the file(s) for their MD5 hash. Once you have the hash, compare the hash to the one given in the info_hash file. If they match, the file hasn't been tampered with by a third party and you can continue.

    However, if the MD5's aren't equal, either you did it wrong or the files have been modified. MD5 Checker:
