    Has anyone here created and upload a torrent to Mininova?I'm using MakeTorrent,under Create Torrent,Classic what do you put for the Tracker?Not sure what the announce or port number is for Mininova.I have tried putting

    Tracker:http://www.mininova.org/announce

    Then select file,Create.torrent now!However when uploading the torrent to Mininova,then click Submit torrent,i get the following

    "Error while uploading

    Error message was: This torrent has no invalid trackers. Either the trackers don't exist, are currently down or do not allow scraping."

    Could anyone please tell me what i'm doing wrong and how to create and upload a torrent to Mininova thanks.

    I am guessing you are using the wrong announce.

    But what's Mininova's announce?

    My understanding is that Mininova is not a tracker but an indexing site. So you can't actually upload directly to it.
    Use any of the announce that DKre8iv1 post and your upload will be listed in Mininvova.

    Thanks for the info,yeah a little confusing because i thought you required Mininova's announce to upload a torrent to their site.Anyway i finally got it working and amazed that i can actually find it listed in the search results.

    Although on the search page it states Seeds 0 Leechers 0 But in utorrent which i'm seeding it states seeds 0(1) Leech Peers 0(0)

    I now have a few questions,even though i'm seeding,will it show as no seeds in the search results unless someone actually is actually leeching the file?Meaning if there's 1 peer leeching,it shows up as 1 seed?

    Also i'm a little confused as to which torrent i should seed.Once i have created the torrent with MakeTorrent,then uploaded the torrent file,do i seed that torrent?

    OR after uploading torrent file you go to your page where torrent details are on Mininova.Do i download this torrent instead and seed that torrent?Or the the one i created myself in MakeTorrent?

    EDIT Finally managed to figure it out using utorrent to create the torrent,then seed it.

    The Mininova stats may take a while to update. As long as you're connectable and the torrent is seeding in your client, you'll be able to connect to leechers.
