WebTorrent Description

WebTorrent is a user-friendly and innovative piece of software that makes it easy for you to download torrent files, as well as to stream or watch videos before being fully downloaded on your computer.

Despite its overall simplicity, this JavaScript-written streaming torrent client packs state-of-the-art technology under the hood, namely the WebRTC (short for Web Real-Time Communication) transfer protocol.

Install and start using WebTorrent in a few seconds

The application undergoes a surprise-free and quick installation process, just as long as you remember to provide its installer with full system rights (Run As Administrator).

Upon launching the app for the first time, you are met by a minimalist main window that displays a few default torrents that can help you get to grips with its functionality.

Straightforward and efficient torrent client

New entries can be easily added by swiftly dragging and dropping torrent files or by pasting the magnet link. Working with WebTorrent is by no means challenging since everything is designed with accessibility in mind.

This said, you can you can start the download, play and remove torrents using the buttons associated with each entry, as well as get an accurate idea regarding the number of currently connected peers, upload and download speeds and the total file size.

This is a good time to point out that all the downloads are automatically sent to the Downloads folder by default. By now, it is quite clear that WebTorrent is not what you would call a full-featured torrent client but fret not, as the app has another ace up its sleeve.

Effortlessly watch and stream videos

By pressing the Play button, you can effortlessly watch videos directly from the app’s main window thanks to its built-in player. Besides all that, the utility provides you with the possibility to effortlessly stream your videos by detecting Chromecast devices connected to your local area network.

Since the app is still in a relatively young development stage, some bugs and glitches are to be expected. During our tests, the utility performed quite well, with the small exception of its built-in video player that keep freezing while streaming to Chromecast.

Brings all the benefits of the WebTorrent Project on your computer’s desktop

Taking all of the above into consideration, WebTorrent is an interesting piece of software that brings to the table a set of advantages that cannot be overlooked.

You can watch videos without them being fully downloaded on your computer and you can also stream them in similar conditions to your Chromecast devices with no more than a few mouse clicks.
