Pirate Bay Now Allows Direct Torrent Streaming
Pirate Bay, has started to use a new plugin called Torrents Time, which allows users to stream torrents directly in their browsers – the advantage being you don’t need to download anything. The Pirate Bay won an important victory in December, when a Stockholm District Court refused an order by Sweden’s second largest internet service provider to block access to the file sharing website.
Torrents Time was released at the start of February and can be used with Google Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer on either Windows or OS X. At present, the system is in beta.
“By harnessing the incredible abilities of torrents, you can transform your website, in a matter of seconds to an amazing, simple to use streaming website,” the Torrents Time team wrote on their site.
So no need to download and install a separate BitTorrent client, and deal with torrent files and videos any more.
“We designed Torrents Time to fully support and enhance the needs of users on video streaming, downloads and torrents websites, while taking into consideration the needs and wants of those site owners to maximize the value they can gain from embedding our solution on their website,” the makers of the platform said.
