If you can't wait for slow servers, we've got just the torrent for you!

Weighing in at just over 77 MB, the new Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess trailer has been melting servers left and right.

For those of you familiar with the file-sharing program BitTorrent, we have another option. Thanks to the magic of the internet, PGC has an official E3-only bittorrent tracker running, which can be viewed here, and at the moment has a torrent file of the exciting new trailer.

Unfamiliar with BitTorrent? Follow these quick and easy steps.

  • Download and install BitTorrent

  • Left click on the torrent link

  • When your browser prompts you to, choose to "open file" with BitTorrent.

  • Observe in amazement as you're downloading with speed!

  • Talkback

    YES, Bittorrent is the perfect way to spread this big file around. I'm going to keep my torrent client open until long after E3 is done with...

    I trust we'll see more high-res mpegs of different things on this tracker as time progresses?

    Yes, this is outstanding guys. Thanks for rocking!

    I downloaded it, and my Media Player gives an error. Is there a prefered player for this file?

    Sorry if this seems like a n00b que, but I'd think it seems obvious that Media Player v10 should handle a mpg file...

    Don't have the right codec, perhaps?

    CalibanMay 17, 2005

    PGC, thanks for sharing it through BT. Gosh, I've watched this trailer 3 times already and I ain't done yet with the counting.

    bustin98May 17, 2005

    Yes, thats the error, but what codec do I need??

    PaleMike Gamin, Contributing EditorMay 17, 2005

    At some point your codecs may have gotten messed up... I suggest trying to reinstall WMP, or just try a different media player all together.

    Holy hell! I can't watch it either...

    This sucks.

    The Metroid Prime Hunters file is an mpeg2 file, so I'm guessing that this Zelda one is as well. To watch a mpeg2 file, try using a DVD program such as WinDVD or PowerDVD.

    TMWMay 17, 2005

    Well, I have about three programs I use, and between them all I can watch just about anything, save for .rm files...

    This is wierd...it's never happened to me before.

    Oh well...I have the smaller version. I can just watch that.

    Any chance of a non-BT version for the internet restricted among us?

    Tuxedo.BondMay 18, 2005

    Internet restricted? Anyway, a very good media player that covers many different formats, is VLC(Previously known as: Video Lan Player) Media Player, and MPlayer(Linux).


    I plan on seeding these with my 384kb upload connection as much as possible.

    Thanks. I had tried watching the trailer in Windows Media Player a couple times, and it would sort of try to play it with no sound, then crash. I fired up PowerDVD and it ran just fine (although it's a little too much for my comp to run smoothly).

    I'll pimp out BSPlayer for anyone who's had problems playing the videos. Its a lightweight media player that plays just about any video file (QT videos are the only one I can't play so far) out-of-the-box. A free download here.

    KDR_11kMay 19, 2005

    The problem I have is that Bittorrent doesn't get through the proxy.

    mantidorMay 19, 2005

    as far as I knew, its not the player but the codecs whats important, once you have the right codecs it can play in any player, am I wrong?

    KDR_11kMay 20, 2005

    Yep. Some codecs aren't officially available, stuff like Quicktime or RealMedia requires unofficial codecs to work without their primitive proprietary players.
