I thought there was a website that does this, but I couldn't remember the name. I think it used the term "burn". Anyways, does anyone know of such a service?

If your requirement fits in the free tier of Amazon EC2 and you live in the US, you could consider creating your own service. mwmanning.com/2010/11/29/… –  Sairam Oct 14 '11 at 18:44
    
Actually, there's a site called "burn" something, that does the opposite. It turns a direct link into a torrent. I don't remember the address. –  becko Mar 17 '13 at 19:56

Put.io is a website which fetches the torrents to their remote servers and provides direct downloads, but is not free.

I do not believe so. The nature of a bit torrent is that it is not being hosted anywhere. There are just several end users that have the exact same file and share this file with other users by linking together using a torrent link. This torrent link checks back and forth to make sure that you are receiving the exact same file as which is being shared by many users. Since there is not a deposit of this file anywhere, there is not a direct link that you can use to download the file. The only way this would be possible is to contact someone who is sharing the file to give you a link to the stuff you want to download.

You can have a remote server acting as a host that can essentially download the files and then server it as a direct download service. I know what torrents are. –  Doug Oct 9 '11 at 5:17

True. However, your question was asking if there is a website that will take the link of a torrent file and convert it into a direct download link. This is not possible. You can have a remote server download the file via a torrent client and then download the file, but that was not your question. –  kobaltz Oct 9 '11 at 6:14

You can try with Instant-Torrents.com. You send to them the torrent location, then they download file(s) of torrent and notify to you when your files are ready. BUT you have to pay the vpn service to download it :(

Torrific.com is another option.

I don't think that exist a free service.

I dont know any site that do that. Maybe if what you want is easy for the user, these web sites converts a torrent to a exe in a single download. The user download the exe and the exe download the torrent content.
