We’ve mentioned RARBG in the past but there are a couple of reasons why we’re posting about it again. First, it’s one of the closest alternatives to large trackers such as Zamunda which international users currently have trouble accessing. Second, it’s a huge semi-private BitTorrent tracker that has a lot of content and offers relatively good download speeds compared to other sites in the same league. Contrary to popular belief, RARBG is not a private tracker –it’s a semi private BitTorrent site. Since it does not enforce any mandatory ratio rules, users are able to download without worrying about a global ratio or hit and runs.

RARBG

Did you notice that we used the word ‘huge’ in the title of this post? RARBG indeed is a huge tracker by any standards. It has over 200000 members and tracks more than 66000 active torrents. As we mentioned earlier it is a semi private BitTorrent tracker such as H33T and Demonoid. RARABG maintains more than one BitTorrent tracker and some of its trackers are used by external sites such as PODTROPOLIS.

To download torrents from this tracker, users do not even need to register. However registration does have its benefits – you will be able to progress up on the user classes chain, customize your account, mark favorites, etc. Anyways there are several disadvantages associated with being semi private as well – RARBG has relatively slow download speeds compared to most private trackers ( but has better speeds than public trackers such as Pirate Bay and in most cases faster than sites of the same caliber such as H33T and Demonoid). Thanks to it’s huge user base, RARBG has good torrent retention times and most of the torrents have good health and activity even after some time.

RARBG Torrents

As you can see from the screenshot above, RARBG tracks all sorts of content including movies, TV shows, music, software, adult content and even torrent packs. You can browse for torrents by category using the left sidebar pane. Links for IMDB information, YouTube trailers and subtitles are placed next to torrent name in applicable cases.

Registrations for RARBG are currently open. Although signups are optional, it’s recommended that you create an account if you plan to use the site in the long haul.

    Always used to think that rarbg is a public tracker.
    Always saw its tracker appearing on torrent files tracked by other public sites like Mininova, ISOhunt, TPB etc.

    @ Chief:

    "MT-Fun.com important notice!

    The owner of MT-Fun has been very, very kind and redirected the url to the server of Midnight-Scene.com.
    Do note though that we are not MT-Fun 2.0, and we can't transfer your MT-Fun account, stats or torrents."
