WebTorrent Desktop Software DownloadWebTorrent 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.

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.

The app is written completely in JavaScript – the language of the web – and uses WebRTC for peer-to-peer transport whenever possible. No browser plugins, extensions, or installation is required to use the software in your internet browser. Whether it’s a video from the Internet Archive, music from Creative Commons, or audiobooks from Librivox, you can play it right away. You don’t have to wait for it to finish downloading.

Imagine a peer-to-peer YouTube where viewers help to host the site’s content. By making BitTorrent easier to use, we can get more people to participate and take the first steps to re-decentralizing the Internet.

WebTorrent Desktop Client Software

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.

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 keeps freezing while streaming to Chromecast.

WebTorrent is an interesting piece of software that brings to the table a set of advantages that cannot be overlooked.
