Magnet Player

Magnet Player is a site where anyone can stream torrents directly from their browser.

It uses WebTorrent - the first torrent client that works in the browser. WebTorrent uses WebRTC for true peer-to-peer transport. No browser plugin, extension, or installation is required.


In the browser, WebTorrent can only download torrents that are seeded by a WebRTC-capable torrent client.

What does that mean?

It means that, for now, not every torrent will work on this site.


Because most people use native torrent clients like BitTorrent, Transmission, μTorrent, etc. which do not use the WebRTC transport protocol, but the TCP/uTP.

Will I be able to stream more torrents in the future?

Yes! It is just a matter of time until developers add WebTorrent support for the most popular native torrent clients. Vuze already has support for WebTorrent!
