TorrentVault (TV) has been mentioned on this blog quite a few times. That’s because it’s a great private tracker for general p2p/scene releases, especially TV and music torrents. The site has excellent pre times, good download speeds and a decent amount of activity on most indexed torrents. TorrentVault recently underwent a massive change – they have upgraded to the Gazelle codebase and are now looking better than ever. In addition, their autouploader bots seem to be on steroids – they are now spewing hundreds of scene releases to the tracker daily (including Multilanguage releases). TorrentVault has never opened signups since they moved to Gazelle. However, FILEnetworks readers will now be able to register new accounts on TV through the special signup link mentioned at the end of this post.
TorrentVault is by no means a new private tracker. The older, TBDEV powered version of the site had been around for years. By now it’s a well established site with over 6000 active members and close to 10000 torrents. Many are unaware of it but TV actually has better pre times than other larger, better known torrent sites – for example, it’s television torrent upload times are on par with (and sometimes beat) trackers such as SCC, ScT and TL. Most of the good pre times are thanks to scripts that automatically upload releases to the tracker (aka autouploaders). TorrentVault’s autouploader bots upload more than 100 torrents to the tracker every day. During yesterday alone there’s been ~125 scene releases uploaded to the tracker (this includes muti-language releases).
TorrentVault does index a lot of TV releases – if you are focused on downloading single episode torrents and not many full season packs, you wouldn’t need a specialized TV tracker to get them if you have an account on this site. But make no mistake – it doesn’t only have TV torrents. Music, games, movies and other general stuff is readily available too. Below is a screen of TV running on its brand new Gazelle implementation:
Speaking of Gazelle, they’ve just upgraded and some features of the site are still being worked on (that’s what the current logo is all about). There’s been a lot of recent changes along with Gazelle migration and tons of new features are in the works as well. A summary of changes and upcoming features are given below (quoted from a new post on TV)
