Sounds exciting, tell me more about WebTorrent!
First launched in 2002, BitTorrent simplified the transfer of large files over the Internet. WebTorrent combines the core technology of BitTorrent with a regular video streaming site, giving you the advantage of both.
Feross Aboukhadijeh, a Stanford University graduate, launched WebTorrent project with the help of hundreds of open source contributors. He seems convinced that it could revolutionize the way our web works today.
Talking to TorrentFreak, he says:
He mentions that he wanted to create a video site like YouTube, where users will help to host the content using P2P protocol. The more people use the website, the faster and powerful it becomes. In simple words – WebTorrent is a BitTorrent client for the web. No installation, no extension, or no web browser plugin is needed.
