Hello, I'm using UTorrent to download 2 torrents. They have peers, but no seeds. Will they ever download? Thanks.

There isn't anything you can do about it. You just have to wait until someone starts seeding.

Okay Thanks. I got one question: Is it possible for ME to be the seeder? If thats possible, then how?

You can only be a seeder if you have already downloaded the full file(s).

A seeder is a peer that has an entire copy of the torrent and offers it for upload. The more seeders there are, the better the chances of getting a higher download speed. If the seeder seeds the whole copy of the download they should get faster downloads.

What torrent site do you use for those two torrents?
Try this site: http://bitsnoop.com/
It searches a big number of torrent sites.

I have one question: How do people upload these downloads anyways without at least 1 seed?

EDIT: What about the web seeds in properties? Will that help?

When you upload a torrent, you become a seed, but when you turn your computer off and nobody else was able to download your file and become a seeder yet, you'll see "zero" seeders.

So what you mean is that I can't download my torrent because the person that uploaded the torrent's computer isn't on?

Him, or anyone who downloaded that file and became a seeder.

One more question: How do you seed a torrent? The whole process seems very complicated...

Take a look here for a guide and there is a tab for FAQ's as well: A Beginner's Guide to BitTorrent

How do you seed a torrent?

Once you started download a file, you become a seeder (as long, as your internet connection is on).

Thanks. Again though, my general question was weather if there is ANY, and ANY way to download a torrent which has no seeds but 1 leecher. And I also asked a question about the web seeds section. What is that for? Thanks.

No.

I didn't catch it. What was that about?
