Several years ago when private trackers first came into the scene, there were no such things as dedicated HD torrent sites. However today, with HD video formats becoming increasingly popular, HD trackers have really gained traction. Today’s post is about one such dedicated torrent tracker for high definition content, namely World In HD (WiHD). WiHD is a BitTorrent tracker of French origin – that doesn’t necessary mean the site is useless for those who don’t speak French. It tracks a significant amount of English releases along with some French content, including untouched Blu Ray movies, Blu Ray remux as well as 720p and 1080p TV shows, movies, animation, documentaries, etc. Being a private community, WiHD is usually closed for public registrations. However, signups are currently open as part of their 1st anniversary celebrations.
Although it’s been online for just 1 year, WiHD hasn’t done badly in terms of expanding their torrent index - the site currently tracks over 1500 HD releases. It looks like they have amassed a decent enough user base during this time too, judging by the per numbers on popular torrents (official stats are unavailable). If you are concerned about the underlying mechanics, WiHD is built on the TS Special Edition codebase. It has all basic features of a private tracker and thankfully is one of the more cleaner looking, less cluttered TSSE implementations we’ve seen.
As we said earlier, WiHD tracks a mix of French and English releases including full Blu Ray movies, animation, documentaries, TV series and more. Most of the releases are in Multilanguage so English speaking fans will not be disappointed they created an account here. Amongst the indexed torrents were some unique uploads which I had not seen in other HD trackers – these are probably internal encodes by the site’s own release groups. The screenshot below shows some of the content traced on WiHD tracker:
WiHD being tracker with its roots in France, the interface language defaults to French. However this can easily be switched to English by clicking on the English flag icon on top left corner of the page (once logged in). As mentioned in the title of this post registrations for World In HD are currently open. Get in while you can.
