    peerflix

    Streaming torrent client for Node.js

    npm install -g peerflix
    

    Note

    Peerflix is an experimental streaming video client using bittorrent through torrent-stream.

    It is not under active development, so instead check out webtorrent by @feross.

    Usage

    To try out peerflix start it with a magnet link or torrent file

    peerflix magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ef330b39f4801d25b4245212e75a38634bfc856e --vlc
    

    peerflix will print a terminal interface. this first line contains a address to a http server. Using --vlc will open the file in vlc when it's ready to stream.

    peerflix

    Simply open this address in vlc or similar to start viewing the file. If the torrent contains multiple files peerflix will choose the biggest one.

    To get a full list of available options run

    peerflix --help
