    Peerflix Web

    Easily stream torrents to a Raspberry Pi via your smart phone, tablet or pc. Peerflix web provides an interface to stream torrents using peerflix and control playback via omxplayer. For convenience, you can also search torrents directly using peerflix web.

    This project is an updated version of torrentcast, with a web interface to control playback.

    NOTE: This has only been tested on Raspbian running on a Raspberry Pi 2.

    Setup

    npm Installation

    $ npm install -g peerflix-web
    $ peerflix-web

    or

    Manual Installation

    $ git clone git@github.com:akinsey/peerflix-web.git
    cd peerflix-web
    $ npm install
    $ node server

    Running on startup

    This project can be setup to run from /etc/init.d so it will automatically start up with your Raspberry Pi. Edit the custom configs at the top of the example.peerflix-web file and rename and move the script to /etc/init.d/peerflix-web. Once in the init.d directory, you can control the server using the following commands:

    $ /etc/init.d/peerflix-web start # add --force to force start 
    $ /etc/init.d/peerflix-web stop  # add --force to force stop 
    $ /etc/init.d/peerflix-web status # view current status of running app 

    Contributions

    Currently this project is designed specifically to work with omxplayer running on raspbian, but it can easily be adapted to work with vlc player. I might add support for this in the future, in the meantime I'm open to pull requests for missing features that others think might be useful.

    Requirements
