Webtor.io is a free browser based torrent client you can use to download and play torrents directly. It takes a torrent file, magnet link or info hash to locate a torrent file and play it. You can stream videos on this and without any sign up or registration. It has a feature rich video player where you get a video seeker with options to turn on or off the subtitles.
Previously, I covered a torrent client for PC that had downloading and streaming capabilities. And now there’s one more tool that can do that and it is online. This is an open source torrent downloader and comes as a Chrome extension as well that you can install to quickly reach the Webtor website.
If there are some documentaries or open videos that you want to stream from torrent then Webtor is useful. With this, you will not have to download the files first. Just use the torrent file and then play the content directly right in the browser. There are no annoying ads or redirects there as well so you will have a good experience here.
