A feature that probably has been around that I just discovered on uTorrent: Prioritize by File Order. Apparently if the files in a torrent have sequential names like episode numbers for seasons of tv shows, that feature will automatically set the priorities for the files with emphasis on the first couple of episodes so that they get finished first. I used to mess with the priorities manually for that, but this feature makes it so much easier. To get to it, click on the torrent that’s being downloaded and go to the files tab. Select all the files, right click and hit Prioritize by File Order.
