Go to Options -> Preferences -> Advanced
See uTorrent settings with opened parameters bt.sequential_download (use this for sequential download one movie) and bt.sequential_files (use this for sequential download TVseries from in that sequence as specified in torrent file).
"What kind of IP address is this? (WIN-F9PTTKUMI2U:29901)"
WIN-F9PTTKUMI2U:29901 is not an IP address.
It identifies a socket connection of a particular μTorrent peer and has the format hostname:port.
WIN-F9PTTKUMI2U is the hostname.
29901 is the port number.
The Peers tab is where you'll find information about all the peers you
According to this question sequential downloading is not supported and won't be. Maybe there are plugins for this for uTorrent.
Edit: i did find this Plugin for uTorrent. (But you need to check if it works and does what you want.)
But another way to go is qBittorrent.
It has a function Sequential downloading (aka "Download in order").
Press Win + R, type regedit and press OK.
Browse to the following location:
Double-click the default location and change the data section to:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" "%L"
You need to change the "Handlers" setting inside the Chrome Settings.
Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.

Set the following settings to false in the advanced settings of uTorrent. Some variable names differ depending on your uTorrent version:
offers.left_rail_offer_enabled / left_rail_offer

Set uTorrent to be like this in Preferences » Advanced » Disk Cache:

...you will see a tick box that says 'Override automatic cache size' and
specify the size manually (MB).
Now changing this setting to a high number depends on two main ...

Go to the "Files" tab in "Detailed Info" (at the bottom) (press F5 if it's not showing)
Select the files you wish to download (their priority should be 'skip')
Right-click and set their priority to "Normal"
I have added steps for both Mac OS X and Windows, works for all versions of uTorrent (including the latest versions). Please note: Windows is untested so if someone could confirm the steps I would be grateful.
1) Stop then Start all torrents
2) Exit uTorrent
3) Open Terminal and execute the following command (enter your password):
There is a sort of fairness system - BitTorrent uses a choking algorithm to handle congestion and prevent this kind of thing. I don't know exactly how it works, but it ensures that connections to users who upload more are prioritized. If your client does not receive any piece of the file from a particular peer, the peer may be snubbed.
A more correct description of colors:
Grey: To be downloaded
Purple: Requested from peer, awaiting download
Dark green: Requested from multiple peers
Light Green: Downloaded, not flushed to disk
Neutral Green: Downloaded and written to disk
Orange: Canceled Piece
It could be because there aren't many seeders to download the file from, or the seeders that are available are low-quality/bandwidth limited.
It's generally a good idea to review how many active seeders there are before downloading something from bittorrent for just this reason.
In the end I got my answer from this article, from Bram Cohen, the inventor of BitTorrent:
The so-called ‘encryption’ of BitTorrent traffic isn’t really encryption, it’s obfuscation. It provides no anonymity whatsoever, and only temporarily evades traffic shaping.
So it's called encryption but it's really just obfuscation, anyone checking the traffic can ...
Verify that the startup option is disabled in uTorrent options.
Check if you have a uTorrent shortcuts under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\, if so - remove it.
When windows start, it will run each of the files in that directory.
You can change the default behavior for the delete function:
Go to Options -> Preferences -> Advanced. Find the listing gui.default_del_action: change the value from 0 to 1.
In fact, you can change the value from 0 all the way to 3 with the corresponding results:
0 means "Remove" (remove the torrent job from the list, but all related files are left ...
I came here looking for the answer to the same question, and @Synetechs's answer pointed me in the right direction. I don't know if this is a new feature that didn't exist when he posted his answer (it's been 3 years, after all). But in the same advanced tab, now there is a bt.progressive_piece_picker setting, which seems to prioritize pieces from the ...
Do you have a large number of unfinished downloads? It might be ideal to close utorrent before you shutdown as well. Windows is probably forcing utorrent to close in the middle operations which forces it to check where it left off the next time it's loaded. The way you shut down is irrelevant. Windows force closes applications (sometimes not so ...

Don't. Do NOT AT ALL.
Unless someone else has already added the tracker, you won't find anyone. And if they've just added the tracker, guess what, you'll already see them on the tracker that came with it.
If you're really sure there's peers out there you're not seeing, then turn on DHT. It's that simple.
Just adding trackers however not only doesn't '...
It seems your winsock is corrupted. A solution would be to log into another healthy PC and export the winsock and winsock2 registry keys only from
to a flash drive, import them to your local registry, reboot your machine. Else copy the winsock.dll files from another healthy PC. The DLL is be located at:
it doesn't know the replacement file's there. So, what you do is start the torrent, stop it, copy the file into the destination directory, and then right click the torrent and 'force recheck'. Then it'll recheck and fetch any corrupted pieces.
A "hash fail" means a block of data you downloaded was checked and the checksum (hash) of that block was incorrect, so it was discarded, and you wasted that time/bandwidth downloading that particular block. uTorrent, and all other torrent clients I am aware of, will just try again until it gets a good copy of that block. And no, it will not reset to zero but ...
You do not have any control over the speed limit imposed by your ISP whatever software or hardware you use.
The only possible exception would be to illegally hack their system. This is not necessarily possible and if it is, it must be extremely complex.
One commenter (СашаЧерных) suggested to create a new string: uTorrent in the registry at the following location:
and set its value to -
This solves the issue without needing to change any other windows settings.
It is most likely due to a setting in Windows 10

In uTorrent, if you hold Shift+F2 while clicking on "preference" you will have access to some special options.

You can change the value of those parameters to "True" in order to download your file sequentially.
