    @Fred, make sure you have the ACE Player HD to play the torrent file.

    Is there a way to pick a certain file from a torrent? For example. An entire season of a show, or if a movie torrent has the complete series in it? For a newer show I could just get the individual torrent files, such as S04E01. But for older shows like the Sopranos, where it’s only the whole series that has seeds, what could I do?

    You can open a torrent in Ace Player HD from Playlist View (Ctrl+L) as a playlist, and then deselect shows from it you don’t want to watch. While watching, the show is bing downloaded and buffered as a file into hidden folder c:\_acestream_cache_ . After you finished watching, you can press Save to save it as a source avi, mkv etc. file on your HDD.
