Hi monimala, welcome to CMX. Any files you download using BitTorrent (open source Linux distributions, etc) will be downloaded to your computer. Most operating systems will have some sort of inbuilt functionality to burn to a disk. Whether you can fit multiple files on a disk depends on the type of disk (ie. a CD normally holds 700MB while a DVD I think is 4.7GB), and the size of the files. If you are using Windows, the file size can be found in Windows Explorer to the far right of the file name :)

I might also add that in order to be able to play back what you burn to CD or DVD on a regular DVD player must be in the proper format...

Using a program like Nero, Roxio, or if you're running Windows 7, Windows DVD Maker, will be able to produce a DVD in a standard DVD format, just dragging and dropping the videos onto the disc (such as Windows Explorer) will make a Data DVD which only a few DVD players will accept.

If you're looking to burn more than 1 movie per disc you might use a DVD over a CD, most movies (in standard definition) are at the very least 500 MB and can be as large a 2 GB, meaning there's no way you can get more than one movie to a disc.

If you're still around and would like to revisit this, what is your objective? to watch on TV? or your computer? Backup?

Does anyone still use Utorrent? Are they still mining cryptocurrencies with your machine when it's idle?

I used to use uTorrent a lot about 10 years ago, and it was compact and light on resources. I was concentrating on building a nice little library of music from lossless--FLAC. It worked well for me. I downloaded and shared a crapload of nice audio.

I've gone through a few PCs since then and never installed it again until about a year ago when I installed the current version. I wanted to grab a couple mp4 movies. I quickly found out the app was spammy as hell. It installed a few other apps, even though I clearly unchecked those boxes during the install. Sneaky bastards. It slowed my system down some, so no doubt some crypto mining going on in the background. I got the video files I wanted, then quickly deleted it and did a registry clean just to make sure.

I don't do a lot of downloading these days, though I occasionally would like to grab something. If anyone knows of a decent Torrent app without any crapware, I'd be happy to hear about it.

I would go with Transmission, it is open source. Just use a VPN, depending on what you're downloading.
