Default stream torrents as you're downloading

BitTorrent Video Streaming!

Instead of having to wait for an entire TV Show to download fully before you can watch it, it is now possible to use BitTorrent to watch a TV Show as it downloads!

This has been made possible with the use of new breakthrough technology in the form of a modification to the client-side BitTorrent protocol. This protocol modification has been implemented in a new program called SwarmPlayer in conjunction with a new .tstream format.

SwarmPlayer contains a BitTorrent client with the required protocol modifications coupled with a customised version of VLC. Together they allow for BitTorrent Video Streaming.

It should be noted that SwarmPlayer is still in very early development and, as such, some bugs are expected.

The .tstream Format
SwarmPlayer can open and stream standard .torrent files. However, the new .tstream format is better suited for streaming

You can download SwarmPlayer from here: http://trial.p2p-next.org/

tstream files are now posted on http://eztv.it

some torrent clients may let you download the "parts" in order then in theory you can play the file in VLC with out affecting the download.

Most clients download the parts in a random order..

To be honest, i think its pointless.

If u have the speed to download a 350mb prog before its downloaded, then u might aswell wait the < 30mins (6mins@750k/s) it takes to download it.
