    hey.. the torrent file itself is just a pointer to where the real files can be
    downloaded from.. you have to have a bittorrent downloader to download
    the actual movie.. I use the one from bittorrent.com... once the download is
    complete you should be able to run it on the software on your machine.. unless
    it is a special file type.. I usually download movies with the MPG file type only..
    those are around 700 MB per movie and they will run in Windows Media Player..
    anyway.. the file type will dictate what kind of program will run the movie..
    are you already running bittorrent? or did you just download a torrent file from
    a website?​

    I'm going to put together a visual tutorial on how to share files privately over
    the internet.. that's the great thing about the bittorrent protocol. we don't
    have to publicly display our torrents.. we can just keep them between friends
    and that makes it impossible to police who's sharing what with who..
