Ever spend hours downloading content off BitTorrent to find that what you downloaded wasn't close to what you wanted, or—worse yet—it contained a virus? Wouldn't it be nice if your BitTorrent tracker verified every torrent? BitTorrent tracker Vertor verifies, scans, and previews BitTorrent downloads so you don't end up with viruses or bum downloads. It does so by downloading every torrent it finds and scanning the files for viruses. If the download is a video, Vertor takes extracts stills from the video and posts them on the site so you can get a better idea of the content and quality of the download in question. According to the Vertor stats, the tracker has processed 418,000 torrents in change. Of those 418k, 133,000 are verified, 2,930 were infected, 5,585 were password protected, and 257,000 contained some sort of download errors. Of course, you'll never see the bum torrents on Vertor, which is the whole point. The site is brand new, and though it appears to be working through some growing pains—they're updating their antivirus software for more accuracy, for example—it's a great idea. Previously mentioned Seedpeer took a similar approach to eliminating bad torrents, but Vertor's larger feature set looks promising.
