Steps for making your movie/video uploadRIPPING YOUR VIDEO
If you already have your video in the format you want to upload, skip the 1st step.
I'm not a movie encoder, so i'm just gonna direct you to the ripping/encoding assets.
1. Ripping your video from DVD. You can use these tutorials depending on the applications you choose to use.

-Now you have a video (hopefully) and it's time to prepare the files for upload and your description.DESCRIPTION
A great description has the following items:
*- Cover Image
*- Narrative about the content
*- Quality information about the content
*- Screenshots (for video)
1. Cover image
You can scan your own if it's available or just get one thats already scanned.
The best place to find covers is http://www.mega-search.net/
Google images and home sites for the video are also great sources.
(hosting is covered down in step 5)
2. Narrative about the content
The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) --> The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) and Wikipedia --> www.wikipedia.org/
have a wealth of information. You can also visit the home site for the movie or studio that made the movie.
3. Quality information about the content
Your description needs quality data (at a minimum, resolution and fps). There are two methods to get your video information that i've seen.
GSpot and Media Info
a. GSpot Guide --> http://fr33sp33k.h33t.com/index.php/topic,2948.0.html
b. Media Info --> http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/
MediaInfo: how to find video or audio file quality information --> http://fr33sp33k.h33t.com/index.php/topic,8837.0.html
4. Screenshots (for video)
There are manual methods (print screen button) and applications to do the work for you.
Media Player Classic can be found here --> http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli

5. Image Hosting
Now you have your images and need to find a place to host them so you can add them to your description.
Photobucket (requires registration) but allows you to manage your albums; and imageshack.us are very popular.
There are many other sources:
Free Image Hosts - no registration required --> http://fr33sp33k.h33t.com/index.php/topic,2199.0.htmlMAKE AN INFORMATION FILE FOR YOUR UPLOAD
Now that you have all your information, put it together into an informaton file to include with your video and to use for your description.
How to make a .nfo file with a .nfo generator --> http://fr33sp33k.h33t.com/index.php?topic=3170.0
For h33t purposes use an "info.txt" or "mymovieupload.txt" (named however you want) as opposed to an actual .NFO file. (many users don't know how to open or use them)
Create your NFO with a builder and copy the information into a notepad text file.
You can also create the text file without an automated application. Use a text editor like notepad and just copy your title, narrative, video quality information, and any other text information about the upload you'd like to add into a file. Then name it and save as a .txt file.
Save it and add a copy to your upload folder.
Keep a copy in another location for editing purposes. You may want to add the hash file or other information later. You can't do it to the one that the .torrent is being created from or it will corrupt the torrent.PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
1. Make a folder that you will use for your .torrent upload.
Name it Exactly as your .torrent will be named i.e. "mymovieupload DvDRip Xvid Mp3 [h33t][me]"
2. Put your video in that folder
3. Put copies of your cover images in the folder
4. Put a copy of the "tracked_by_h33t_com.txt" file (found on the upload page) in the folder
5. Put a copy of your Info.txt file in the folder.MAKING THE TORRENT
At this point, you should have your video, images, description, and folder together.
The h33t tracker announce is: http://www.h33t.com:3310/announce
and will be added to the tracker box in your client when you make the .torrent.

How to creating torrent file with Utorrent --> http://fr33sp33k.h33t.com/index.php/topic,2765.15.html
DO NOT SAVE THE .torrent in your new upload folder. Make a folder or use an existing folder somewhere else.
Now that you've created the .torrent from that folder you CANNOT move, add, delete, or modify it's contents.
There is a Hash file (alphanumerical data file) assigned to identify your torrent contents and any manipulation will corrupt the .torrent.UPLOADING TO H33T
Go to the main site http://h33t.com/index.php
You MUST be logged in to upload.
Go to the upload page http://h33t.com/upload.php
by clicking -->
- Torrent File: The first line is the .torrent. Use the "choose" feature and browse to where you saved the .torrent.
- Category: Choose what you are uploading from the dropdown list. Movie for this example.
- File Name: The file name should be the name of the folder (now you see why I said to name it like the torrent would be) mymovieupload DvDRip Xvid Mp3 [h33t][me]
Add your "dress up" images like "h33t presents" .gif if you have them.
Add your torrent title first "mymovieupload DvDRip Xvid Mp3 [h33t][me]"
Add the image code or the url of your hosted cover with [img] tags.
Add the information from your Info.txt file to include your narrative and quality information.
Add your screenshots via image code or the url of your hosted cover image with [img] tags.
Add any other notes about the release or information you would like to include.
You can put your "keep seeding" graphics or h33t specific .gifs or whatever you'd like to "dress up" your description.
- Image Code: Enter the Numbers and Letters from the picture into the box provided.
Now your torrent will go to the Moderation area to be checked out by the torrent moderators.
Once approved, your torrent will appear in the h33t index.
If there is a problem or something is missing, it will be rejected and you will receive a pm from the moderator telling you what is wrong and what needs to be done to fix it.PROPAGATION
Now that you've uploaded to h33t and you are seeding your torrent, go to http://www.mininova.org/
and choose "upload", "upload a .torrent" from the top banner and follow the instrucitons to add your torrent there. The format is similar to uploading at h33t.
If you are a member of any other public sites or forums, add your torrent there.
There are a couple more sites you can add to also:http://torrentportal.com/http://btjunkie.org/http://thepiratebay.org/
is also an option. In the past you would have to make another torrent and add their tracker as primary, but if I read correctly, TPB now injects it's tracker to uploads that do not contain it. Try it out. I haven't got that far yet. Feel free to ask or mention anything I may have missed or that you don't understand up to this point. I will make changes and improve as necessary.
