Questions and Answers

What do seeds and peers have to do with the download speed of torrents?

I was downloading a movie few days back which had "0" seeds and "1" peers. When I started downloading it, the speed was very slow (in bits per second). Why does this happen? Is there any solution for this?

Seed is a person who has already downloaded the torrent. Peer, also known as leecher, is a person who hasn't downloaded the entire file, but has downloaded part of it, and is sharing the part they have downloaded. Because of this, the greater the number of seeds and peers for a given file, the faster you will be able to download it.
