Free and legal ways to watch great content instantly
Streaming a movie torrent means that you’re
able to watch it before the whole file has been downloaded. If you prefer to
get your movies, TV shows, or other videos through torrent websites, a
dedicated tool that supports streaming is what you want.
This is a great way to watch movie torrents if
you want to avoid having to wait potentially hours for the movie to fully
download. For example, maybe you have a really slow internet connection, or the
movie is just so good that you can’t wait to watch it. No matter what your
reason is, a streaming torrent site or program can do this for you.
Important Facts About Movie
It’s important to be aware of what a movie
torrent is. Most torrent sites offer movies that are not legal to stream or
download, and most countries have rules in place that restrict people from
getting those movies (even though it’s really easy to do so).
Before choosing a movie or TV show to use with
one of these torrent streaming tools, do some research to make sure that it’s
totally and completely free and legal. If the movie is in the public domain or
a friend is sharing a home video with you via a torrent, there’s no need to
worry about the legal side of things. However, if the movie is still in
theaters or has not been deemed public domain content, you should avoid it.
We do not support downloading or streaming movies illegally. There are plenty of completely free, public domain movies on torrent sites and other places (such as Archive.org) that are 100% free to watch.
Tip: If you’re looking for movie streaming sites that are legal without question, we have a list of those here.
Torrent Clients For Streaming
Below is our list of the absolute best ways to
watch movie torrents without downloading them. Some methods involve a web
service that stores the movie on a server before delivering it to you through
your browser, and others are desktop programs that let you watch while the
movie is downloading.
WebTorrent Desktop is a program you install to
your computer. It works on Windows, Linux, and Mac devices and is super easy to
You can drag a torrent file into the program
or paste a magnet link, and moments later, a play button will appear that lets
you stream the movie torrent. There’s also a Chromecast button if you want to
watch the movie on your TV.
This torrent client for movies also lets you
make your own torrents, which is useful if you want to share a home video with
family or friends. Keyboard shortcuts are included to make controlling playback
easy, and you can use SRT and VTT subtitle files.
Webtor.io is another online torrent client
that lets you stream movies for free without a user account. Just enter the
torrent URL, upload a torrent file, or paste the magnet link into the box on
the home page and wait for the site to gather up all the seeders. Moments
later, you’ll be able to play the movie torrent in your browser and even stream
to a Chromecast.
Something neat about Webtor.io is that you can
share the movie stream with others, too, so that they can watch it as well
without having to worry about finding the original torrent file.
You can use this torrent client from their website or via the Webtor.io Chrome extension.
Seedr makes streaming movie torrents really
easy. After you make an account, you get 2 GB of free storage to keep your
files (you can delete when finished to make room for more). From my experience,
Seedr is one of the fastest ways to get movie torrents because nearly every
file I’ve ever used with it becomes available in minutes.
You can’t watch the movie until the full file
has been saved to your account, but when it’s finished, you don’t have to
download it to your computer to watch the video. Just stream it right there on
Chromecast is supported and you can organize
your files into folders.
The Bitport.io online torrent client is a bit
different than some of these other ones because you do have to wait for the
movie to finish downloading before you can watch it (just like with Seedr).
Once the torrent has been fully loaded in your
account, you can stream the movie from Bitport.io.
Note: Free users are limited to 1 GB of space and can download to their
account one torrent per day. There are payment options if you want those restrictions
ROX Player is a desktop-based torrent client.
After you install it, use the File
menu to load a torrent file/URL or magnet link. The program will buffer the
video and then start streaming it immediately.
Since this movie torrent streamer is a
full-fledged program, it offers features not found in the online clients listed
above. You can adjust the video brightness, saturation, contrast, and other
levels, as well as change the aspect ratio, import subtitles, define the
speaker setup, adjust the stream speed limit, associate it with torrent files,
You can use ROX Player in Windows 10 down
through Windows XP.
