WebTorrent Desktop is a cross-platform open source torrent client with which you can instantly stream audio and video torrent files without waiting to completely download them.

It features a beautiful and modern User Interface, streaming support for videos from Internet Archive, music from Creative Commons, and audiobooks from Librivox, and has the ability to talk to BitTorrent and WebTorrent peers while providing a seamless User Experience.

  • Fast and lightweight
  • Modern User Experience and beautiful User Interface
  • 100% FOSS: Free and Open Source Software
  • Instant audio and video streaming
  • Pause and resume all torrents at once
  • Drag-and-drop support for adding .torrent files and magnet links
  • Stream videos to DLNA, AirPlay, and Chromecast

WebTorrent Desktop is in beta stage but it is already available for download and offering an excellent User Experience. I enjoyed using the app especially since I didn’t witness any bugs.

The cost of maintenance is skyrocketing as more readers are coming on board and the ad service that we employ in order to generate revenue is unfortunately no longer sufficient and this is especially due to the increased use of ad-blockers.

We humbly request that you consider disabling your ad-blockers to support us financially or by donating as anything from $1. Your donation(s) will go a long way in supporting FossMint and sister site, TecMint, in running efficiently. Thank you.
