i really want to watch 24 hours of foo but i don't understand how those torrents work and i'm never sure if streaming or downloading something is legal which makes me incredibly anxious. so i might just have to stick with the bits and pieces youtube delivers me?! :(@Anonymous
Hi, i’m sorry you’re having trouble with the torrents. The YouTube clips are great but they are only clips, so you’re missing many hours - literal hours - of good Foo-related entertainment. With torrents, you’re not downloading them from the official licensee/copyright holder (in this case, MTV2) but it works on a peer-to-peer or seeder/leecher basis. The essential thing you need to start torrenting is to get yourself some software, go to the torrent page for 24HOF, and click on the link that says “get this torrent" (just that one, avoid the others). Then wait and be patient because it’s a huge file and may take anywhere from several hours to several days, depending on how many others are sharing it at the same time.
We’ve thought about putting 24HOF on YouTube clip by clip, but there’s just too much and they’d be pulled down almost as fast as we’d be getting them up, so it’s just not practical.
Drop us a line if you need any more help!
Is there a link to all of 24 hours of foo? I tried but all I could find was part 1 and 2@Anonymous
You won’t find the whole thing on YouTube because it’s just too big and the segments too awesome to be contained in one file. If you have the software and the download allowance, you can get it as a torrent here or here. Or, find someone on Tumblr who has it on DVD and they might burn a copy for you!
