New features in Webtor 1.7.0 🎉

May 27, 2020

It has been quite a while since the previous release, but it was worth it!

Here is a list of key changes:

  1. Player SDK is already available! - Now you can embed the playback of torrent content in any site without extra effort. SDK with an example usage published to Github.
  2. Interface for selecting and displaying subtitles improved - it became much easier to select subtitles from a large list, as well as the opportunity to change subtitle size on the fly.
  3. Dark mode by default - now the main color scheme of the interface is solved in dark shades by default. They say it protects our eyes!
  4. Caching of downloaded content improved - now all downloaded content is saved for a day and does not require re-downloading from the BitTorrent network.
  5. WebRTC support - if several users watch the same movie, then they exchange fragments of it by the WebRTC protocol. This uses a private tracker. Only MP4 is currently supported. This was made possible thanks to the WebTorrent project.

Now all server components of the Webtor platform and SDK are available opensource:
