The colored dots under each computer represents which part of the bittorrent'ed file each computer has. The lines connecting computers shows the transmission of a part from one computer to another. At the end of animation all computers have all parts of the file and the host computer only transmitted each part only once (watch for yourself) thus sending the file only once.
