Help me make a torrent... torrent.

[BitTorrentFilter] I've made a torrent (of an interesting collection of music videos) that I want to distribute. Research about recent reliable trackers led me to use the one
provided by PublicBitTorrent
. But test-launching the torrent file from another computer shows me that no downloading (nor corresponding uploading) occurs. Is it the tracker, or what else might I have done wrong?

I made the torrent on a Mac with Vuze (albeit in it's old-style Azureus guise), and I'm testing the download on the same connection from another Mac with Transmission. Though it's not the very first time I'm doing this, I still feel quite the novice.
Any&other advice - better/other trackers, whether to host the torrent on a tracker site (now that the PB is no more), etc. - greatly appreciated.
