    I'm having some problems creating .torrent files on my seedbox, or at least I'm having problems creating large .torrent files.

    the torrent I want to create is 78GB large.
    When I try Utorrent I get an error in the middle of the process, "There was an error computing the hash: 4"

    So have installed Mktorrent, and I give this command to create the .torrent file:
    mktorrent -a http://tracker.hehe:80/announce.php -p /home/admin/Desktop/The.Folder.I.Selected

    That works, BUT, the torrent file gets to big, about 6,5MB
    which is to big to upload to a torrent tracker.

    Anyone ever heard of this kind of problem or can help me in any way, would be very appriciated

    Thanks for the answer guys

    but when I use Mktorrent I get way to big .torrent files :/ (over 6MB)
    I wrote the exact command I use to create the file above, is there anything wrong with it? Whats the command you use to create you packs Slayer2005?

    the way to solve that is to (drastically) increase piece-size.

    in the options
    Options:
    -a <url>[,<url>]* : specify the full announce URLs
    at least one is required
    additional -a adds backup trackers
    -c <comment> : add a comment to the metainfo
    -d : don't write the creation date
    -h : show this help screen
    -l <n> : set the piece length to 2^n bytes,
    default is 18, that is 2^18 = 256kb
    -n <name> : set the name of the torrent,
    default is the basename of the target
    -o <filename> : set the path and filename of the created file
    default is <name>.torrent
    -p : set the private flag
    -t <n> : use <n> threads for calculating hashes
    default is 2
    -v : be verbose
    -w <url>[,<url>]* : add web seed URLs
    additional -w adds more URLs
