If you are on the lookout for full Blu Ray movie or TV torrents, here’s a private tracker you might find interesting. Blu Torrents specializes in Blu Ray video content that are untouched and whole. These files are not ripped, compressed or modified by any means and you get to enjoy high quality video along with special features and extras that are in the original Blu Ray disk. Downside of this is the massive file size – sometimes, the untouched BD video source for a single movie can take up to about 40GB. Although not a massively hyped up tracker, Blu Torrents has slowly but steadily been building a decent community. v2 of the site which apparently included a complete re-write of the codebase was launched last July with an improved user interface, Secure SSL connectivity and numerous other optimizations. If you are interested in becoming a member, new registrations are currently being accepted.
Launched several months ago, Blu Torrents has managed to attract nearly 7000 new members during this time. This is actually a decently sized user base for a niche tracker. The fact that not many out there would want to allocate 40GB of their bandwidth and hard disk space for a single movie makes this achievement even more impressive :p
Although the name of the tracker is Blu Torrents, it does index regular HD videos (including rips and other encodes), DVDRs, etc as well. However, the primary focus of the site seems to be on BD25 and BD50 releases as well as full disk re-encodes. Most of these releases are exclusive to Blu Torrents and are uploaded by the site’s internal encoders (internal releases may be identified by ‘BTNET’ tag on torrent title). In addition, there are some nice tutorials on Blu Ray encoding in their ‘Guides/Tutorials’ section. The site however could do with some more content – it currently tracks 410 torrents out of only ~220 are only active. Screenshot of the torrent index is embedded below:
If you are interested in joining, registrations for Blu Torrents are currently open. The site’s max user limit is set to 10000 which leaves around 3000 more free slots up for the taking.
