Torrents and How it works?

One of my friend asked me about me what is Torrent software and can i download mp3 movies via Torrent Software abosultely you can download anything via Torrent Software, Torrent Softwares uses Bittorrent Protocol - A peer-to-peer file sharing (P2P) communications protocol. Used to Share Files.
Server which is a tracker here in this P2P network the server will have a torrent file with extension .torrent this file consists of tracker that where are the files are shared and from which IP/Machine it is published/shared all the information about the files will be tracked by server.
Here Server act as an intermediate to all the Machines Server does not contains any files it will have only trackers inside the .torrent file.

Seeders : Seeders are normally known as publishers when ever a file is published with the help of torrent server the publisher is the first seeder. 

Leechers : when others download with the help of Seeder (Publisher) they are know as leechers

If the leecher downloads fully automatically the software starts to seed to others this is optional in some softwares. But without seeders you cannot download files as fast you can more seeders more fastly you can download. So before Downloading any torrent file you should check how much seeders and leechers are there and start download the torrent file.
