BitTorrent Inc. is planning to replace its mainline client in the beginning of this year. It will release a new all-in-one ecosystem for media entertainment, which will become part of a BitTorrent Certified technology system comprised of mobile devices, TVs, and other consumer electronics. After eliminating lots of technical hurdles, the project Chrysalis becomes an attempt to satisfy a wider range of consumers than uTorrent.
BitTorrent Inc. said that it is going to introduce a new BitTorrent client, integrating downloads, search and playback on various devices. Actually, this new project of BitTorrent Inc. follows after its competitor Vuze which has already established similar all-in-one client.
New ecosystem of BitTorrent Certified products is codenamed Chrysalis. The project will enable users to search for different files shared on BitTorrent, then download them and play directly on their devices – PCs, TVs or mobiles. All those steps are bundled into a single system, so users won’t have to worry about codecs, conversion, or file formats.
Chief strategist for BitTorrent Inc. explained that modern generation of electronics devices is far more powerful than ever before. However, those devices still don’t have enough cohesiveness and ease of use for files playback, forcing consumers to differentiate between various codecs, file formats, and other technology jargon. It shouldn’t be that way. Instead, content playback should just work, regardless of content source or its type.
The new client is expected to replace the mainline BitTorrent application in the first quarter of the current year. Meanwhile, uTorrent will keep its minimal footprint and continue to be developed separately. In fact, the Chrysalis project seems to be an effort to keep more users on board. The company recently revealed that its applications are downloaded 400,000 times a day, but only small percentage of them result in recurring users. The reason is a perceived complexity of the clients.
Besides introducing the all-in-one application, BitTorrent Inc. is going to launch partnerships with manufacturers of consumer electronics like TVs, tablets and mobiles so that they display a “BitTorrent Certified” logo. All the new applications and standards will be entirely compatible with the .torrent format, so for current users not much will change.
