I have a video file I've created. I'd like to share it to the kind/size of audience that makes me think bittorrent would be a great distribution mechanism. A sort of semi-private "those who have the link have access" model would work well for me.
So I've got this one file on disk. I'd like to create the torrent and start seeding it, share just the short magnet link, and then let the swarm start based on that. Adding open/public trackers is OK if that makes the process faster/better/etc.
I'd greatly prefer this to be linux and/or open source software based. One-time set up on e.g. Windows or with closed source software might be OK, but I'd prefer to avoid it if at all possible.
(I took one brief shot at this by using mktorrent and then passing that through a python script based on a stack overflow question. My local client said it was seeding, and I used my own remote torrent client to test, but it never started downloading.)
