How to Watch Movies From Torrent Files Without Downloading Them? [How To]
By on July 26th, 2008

Torrents have become the most popular way to share and download movies, there are several torrent clients that allow you to download files using torrents. But what if you want to watch a movie without having to download the torrent?

If you are looking to do that, we have found a nifty little software that will allow you to view movies without having to download the torrents. RARPlayer is a multimedia torrent player, which will allow you to view high quality movies without having to physically download them.

DivX, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, Xvid, 3ivx, QT QuickTime MOV, RM Real media, OGM, Matroska , mkv, asf, wmv, DV, m1v, m2v, , mp4, mpv, swf, vob and wav, mpa, mp1, mp2, mp3, Ogg, aac, AC3, aif, ram, wma…

    That’s really cool with rarplayer, less resources with live download and play…. good one…

    Thanks a lot :D I have upgraded my internet speed,now I can watch movies without buffering ;-)

  • m.doll

    How much speed we need to watch movies without buffering ?

  • rainking

    Okay, please tell me what’s wrong with the following:

    “How to Watch Movies From Torrent Files Without Downloading Them?”

    “But what if you want to watch a movie without having to download the torrent?”

    “software that will allow you to view movies without having to download the torrents.”

    And, at the end of all this nonsense:

    “Note: You will have to download the torrent file before you can watch the movie with RARPlayer.”

    Is there something about the word download that you don’t understand? It is impossible to view any file without downloading it. It might be cached as a temp file, it might be viewable as it is being downloaded (streaming), but (let me repeat this just to be clear) it is impossible to view any file without downloading it.

      @rainking thanks for pointing this out to us, we will take care about such things in future.

    The file must be downloaded to be watched. That is, how could the software on your computer present the video if the file is not loaded by the software? This is rainking’s point.

  • qwerty

    rainking, the article means downloading the .torrent file and not the contents inside it, you think ur so smart trying to point out mistakes

    • mark

      yes mate, this guy ranking is obviously a twat

  • Kyle

    Well, qwerty, rainking has a point. Also, most of these so-called players you download to watch without downloading the torrents do not work on movies.

    Actually this player DOES download the files in the torrent, just that it forces the segments to download in order and starts playing from a buffer, just like any streaming player, discarding played segments and downloading future segments in advance.
    It uses less bandwidth because it doesn’t download all segments in random order like a normal client and less space because it only downloads the piece which it plays and a few pieces in advance.

    • Jag

      Uses less bandwidth? Depends on your internet speed, if it can, it will tkae one hour to download and watch a one hour movie, if taht’s your normal speed for downloading a file that size, same bandwidth.

      Less space? It has the same total downloaded, it jsut deletes as it goes, how is that useful at all. “Hey, I want to download a movie, and watch it only once, it’s still priating, but I dont keep it lol”.
      It’s no better than downloading and keeping it, plus if youd ownload the full thing there is no buffering. Just pirate your movies, srs, how much is HDD space tehse days? I bought a 1terrabyte hdd for less than $150nz

  • pointlessd

    Sequential downloading defeats the purpose of the torrent swarm. I wonder if this player even uploads back to the swarm. I would guess that it’s just leeching and not contributing to others.

  • http://addy-studios.net Addy

    I think it’s a bit sad that a “techie” blog such as this can write about an application like this without knowing anything about it. Nice to know you’re just trying to pump out articles here :)

    Next time, try doing your research. Thumbs down.

  • Fx

    This app sounds like it could be the ultimate torrent leech. It grabs the pieces it needs to play, and presumably discards them after they are no longer needed. Those discarded pieces are no longer available for uploading to the swarm. Or does this app even upload ANY pieces back to the swarm???!

    ^^^^^^^ makes more sense than the article

    • mark

      ofcourse you download it but you download the torrent file NOT the whole movie. ffs. and you stream the movie, on the player.

  • steve

    Ok so this player can supposedly be called as a Live Streaming player for Torrents :p

  • steve

    still,,I`d rather go for downloading it once and watch it like many times i want !!

  • tessa

    i clicked the link to download the player but it says 404 page not found
    typical error message… please help me

  • Josh

    Im new to all of this, and i have downloaded a bit torrent and downloaded the torrent for a tv series i like but have no idea how to watch it, any ideas?

    • Mark

      rightclick on the downloaded file in bit torrent or utorrent or whichever one you got and select show in folder

  • cv

    You guys are morons, this is a scam, it is some sort of virus or spyware. There is NO way to watch a torrent without downloading it and it even says “Note: You will have to download the torrent file before you can watch the movie with RARPlayer.”

  • Anish

    trying it out, hopefully it works.. this would be great for a guy like me that downloads sport torrents every single day… would really make things alot faster.. all that waiting will go out the window if this works :)..

    cheers,

    now isnt that a bit of a contradiction on what youve said “How to Watch Movies From Torrent Files Without Downloading Them? [How To]” and lower down you mention “Note: You will have to download the torrent file before you can watch the movie with RARPlayer.” above you said without downloading the movie, got to be one or the other, and i do use rarplayer for looking at one file of a download like to see what the quality is like thanks
