Hello, recently heard that you could stream torrents in Brave browser tab, reached out on twitter and was told this:
“When using Web torrent viewer, once your download has started, simply double-click on the torrent file to have it stream directly in your browser!”
I have Torrent Viewer extension enabled (version 1.0) however when I start downloading, and double-click on the torrent file the download tab quickly says loading… then goes blank, and a few seconds later opens up file explorer to determine a download path. Here’s my Brave Version.
OS Release: 10.0.16299
Update Channel: Release
OS Architecture: x64
OS Platform: Microsoft Windows
Brave Sync: v1.4.2
My shield settings are block ads, block 3rd party cookies, block 3rd party fingerprinting, https everywhere, block phishing/malware.
Step by Step:
i. click magnet link for torrent
ii. new tab opens displaying magnet link in URL and orange start torrent button, click start torrent
iii. torrent starts downloading, I wait for peers to reach about 30 and download speed is about 1.5mb/s
iv. I bring mouse over torrent file (displays text cursor) and double click file.
v. torrent tab goes blank except says loading for a split second then goes completely blank, a few seconds later file explorer opens for “save as”.
The download does work, and it does let me watch with VLC player before I finish downloading, but I’m trying to stream this in the browser and haven’t had any luck messing around with settings. Thanks for any help here!
