It's on my todo list. I actually already have a work-in-progress branch with streaming from torrents.

I have been trying to stream torrents with showtime for sometime. I read it can be done with acestream but I can only get it to work on my pc.

This feature would be a game changer andreas :-)

The idea of it alone is blowing my mind right now with infinite ramifications.
Please make it so.

Just an update on this topic. The code is making great progress and I can basically watch movies from torrents now.

It still needs a bunch of cleanup before it's stable enough for release.

Why not ship it in Bleeding Edge?

Yes, from the most part of Showtime the torrents appear as regular files.

So subtitles in the file itself, or in the torrent, or from plugins (even doing hashes on the media file) or from external directories will work perfectly fine.

I'm using opensubtitles myself when testing the torrent client as so far it works just fine.

It's still too buggy. On low mem systems (as ps3) it will crash quite soon since it leaks memory. Also you'll need to restart the player after wathcing one torrent as there is no way of shutting down the streamer correctly.

#14 Updated by ßlueplanet . over 6 years ago

The YTS plugin will not work in country's where the .re domain is blocked it just says HTTP Error: -1
I changed the domains in the yts.js file and its now working fine

great work andreas :)

#15 Updated by ßlueplanet . over 6 years ago

I forgot to add
the domain is yts.im, it was introduced when certain country's began blocking the site about a year ago, its worked fine for me ever since.

Are there any other Bittorrent sites going to be supported?

#18 Updated by Max Lourenço over 6 years ago

How was the torrent support implemented? (on a user perspective) Are all torrents supported? Does it only work with the YTS API or with any torrent?

For instante, can I send a torrent url to the http server and ST start loading it?? How?

YTS works great btw. Excelent work :-)

in webui just enter it like:
torrent:video:URLtoTorrentFile

#20 Updated by Mariano Flotron over 6 years ago

It can be possible to add a torrent portal? and just click the magnet from there?

By the way i suggest support for external subs portals too like subdivx.com or argenteam.net(are the biggest spanish portal for subs) the problem could be that subs are zipped.

Great work, i want showtime in all my devices :)

#21 Updated by Mariano Flotron over 6 years ago

maybe not the portal, but the rss feeds

I tried to open a magnet link with Webui (http://192.168.1.113:42000/) and TV turns black and nothing happens

#23 Updated by Leonid Protasov about 6 years ago

I only used
torrent:video:URLtoTorrentFile

and

torrent:browse:URLtoTorrentFile

Had bad experience (non working) with torrentfile://
