PostPosted: Thu 07 Apr 2016, 13:36    Post subject:  Webtorrent Desktop for Linux
Subject description: beta
 

https://github.com/feross/webtorrent-desktop/releases

Binaries for Ubuntu Puppy 64-bit capable only.

Once installed, run it once from a terminal (if you’ve installed the .deb, simply type “webtorrent-desktop” in a terminal), and the application should automatically create a .desktop file.

Node.js may be needed : https://github.com/nodesource/distributions#installation-instructions

Besides being able to stream torrents to your desktop, WebTorrent Desktop can also stream torrents to AirPlay, Chromecast, and DLNA.

I honestly wouldn't recommend this at all. Just use some other bittorrent client (like qbittorrent), go to kat.cr and, and download torrents for movies from there. The problem with Webtorrent is that it streams the torrent (so not good on slow connection) and the other problem is that it seems to make use of WebRTC (which is a no-no all together).

.

well I think the last thing I would be is a blind sheep

However a union between two same sex people produces nothing and in the long term is totally disruptive to society and humankind. It is an act of selfishness on the part of both and they try to push it on others to justify it in their own minds .

A total perversion . In past times if a man out hunting tried this they would be killed immediately .
That punishment still seems appropriate and will shortly return and catch up with these perverts .

I'm a racist too ....but don't get me started on that.


Oh.... and I use Puppy's "Transmission" and a fine bit of software it is too

What does your blind and ignorant hate of homosexuals have to do with Webtorrent? I know things get offtopic on linux forums but this is too offtopic, even for a linux forum.

Nothing "blind and ignorant" about it . They are your choice of words .
You also choose to push it in the face of others and thats what you get back if you do so from me .

I have given it considerable thought over decades and I know it for the perversion it is and I object to having it rammed down my throat like that . Keep it to yourself and all will be well.

Actually, I'm not shoving what is the truth on to you. and no, there is noting perverted about being gay. Your homophobic comments against me are harmful to society, but it's clear now you don't seem to care about anyone besides yourself.

Subject description: 32-bit .deb available for Mintpup
 

https://github.com/feross/webtorrent-desktop/releases

It is an easy install for Mintpup. Don't look for it in the menu, you have to type webtorrent desktop in terminal emulator, and a window appears with some items.
