Dear mrbilltill,

"Seeding" is like uploading. When downloading a file using bittorrent the bittorrent client gathers the data from many sources. This is much more stable and provides for a more efficient & faster downloading experience.

If you are "seeding" a file, you become one of the many users who is helping to provide that file to other people who may want to download it.

For more information, please see: http://btfaq.com/serve/cache/33.html.

Can you help with this problem?
