BitTorrent’s Apps studio introduced VLC media player application to its users, which allows them one-click streaming of files from their favorite BitTorrent client. In addition µCast allows users create list of files, called TorrentCasts, available for sharing with others.
BitTorrent Inc. has announced a number of new applications for both BitTorrent and uTorrent clients, saying that it will allow users to do what they couldn’t before.
The first innovation is a VLC player application, enabling you to automatically display the torrents that you have downloaded in a single list, which allows to easily play each of them via the VLC media player. The player is widely known as the one playing each and every file type currently existing, including disc images having extension .iso. This means that when you click on a file, there’s almost no chance to get that annoying dialog which asks you to find the relevant program to play it – VLC just knows. Thus, this program is a perfect match to different file types existing in the BitTorrent ecosystem. Besides, BitTorrent Inc. claims it to keep with the most valued qualities and be light and easy to use.
Then comes µCast, enabling users to create RSS feeds, also called TorrentCasts, of their own torrents in order to share them with others. The way it works is quite simple: you create a feed by just selecting the files you are willing to share. Then, your TorrentCast link’s recipients simply load it into their own BitTorrent application and get able to access any file from the feed. In addition, the TorrentCast is password protected in order to prevent illicit editing of your list by your recipients. Meanwhile, your recipients are able to add and edit files on the list if you provide them the password.
At the same time, µCast can be used as part of BitTorrent’s effort to help musicians reach P2P users, providing them with a very convenient way to deliver their songs or films to their fans. It can be made just as it is described above. The only exception is that the artist first has to convert their material to a torrent, which is not too difficult, even if sounds a little technical.
These were not the first useful apps the company released this year: the Apps SDK for uTorrent were introduced this mid-summer in a bid to allow third party developers to create and add their own applications offering new features and services.

|I'm not sure if I fully comprehended it, but I'm guessing it's like a type of editable torrent feed...?|
Thanks for the info.
|IM PRETTY NEW TO THE WHOLE THING,ID BE HAPPY TOFIND A WAY TO HIDE FROM MY IP AND NOT GET ANOTHER COPYWRITE LETTER. I GOT HIDE MY IP , I STILL DONT KNOW HOW THEY SEE ME.....IM AFRAID TO SEED FOR TOO LONG. ANY SUGGESTIONS ANYONE?|
|@catinthehat First off, get peerblocker.. it's not the sure-all way (there is no 100% btw, so if you're paranoid, get out now) but it's your condom.. 2nd, if you can't get a VPN, (if you're broke like 97.92% of us are) then use a proxy;but TRY to get a VPN (also, lrn2network, if you're gonna be doing this, then terms like VPN or techniques on how they track your IP address shouldn't be egyptian to you) ; if you use a proxy, an easy one to get started is proxPN. It's still not perfect, but it's essentially free. Reroute your torrent client through ProxyFirewall (a program, not some feature) and make sure that you at least seed.. if you're afraid to seed TOO long, set a ratio. I use uTorrent and I can set a ratio to stop at a certain time. 207th, (more of a personal preffy, but still) Use a Software Firewall. That way you can see what happens at all times with your network.. Comodo is a good one, as well as Online Armor.. This is all assuming you're on windows.. I don't know any advice for mac, nor if any of these programs work there.. and if you're on linux, use MoBloquer. It's the same as PeerBlock. and set up a VPN or proxy there..|
|For some reason, µCast smells like badly put together YouTube channels.. maybe I'm just pessimistic.|
