    What is StreamTorrent?
    StreamTorrent is a somewhat new streaming application that has been gaining momentum among streamers and stream viewers alike. Stream viewers have reported greatly improved video quality, while also reporting less CPU and bandwidth usage. Streamers are also pleased with having such a quality stream with lower bitrates than other clients require.

    The program has an easy to use interface, and is quite minimalistic. The player itself is very similar to TVAnts and especially SopCast, which makes for an easier transition for users of those programs to switch with little issue to StreamTorrent.

    Where to Download?
    You can download StreamTorrent using one of the following URL's below.

    How to use a Portable Version of StreamTorrent. Useful if you want to view streams, at work and other locales, where admin privledges are limited.



    How to Open a StreamTorrent Stream.
    There are several ways to open up a StreamTorrent stream. When using streamcentral-listed streams, the most common method you'll be using are link clicking and copy and pasting, so I'll be covering those in particular. You can tell a stream is a StreamTorrent stream when you see the (ST) in the stream listing, i.e. #16TV (ST). Another way to tell if it is a StreamTorrent stream, is the StreamTorrent protocol st:// in the URL.

    I see an advertisement when starting to watch
    Open Internet Explorer goto Tools --> Internet options --> Security Tab --> Restricted sites --> Click on Sites botton --> paste this & then Add: http://announce.tvaio.net/

    Player will now show a blank white view until stream loads & no popups.

    Link Clicking.

    To open, click the link, then click "OK" on the prompt to open the stream in StreamTorrent. (Simple, isn't it?)


    Copy and Pasting.

    Text-based ST URL's: Select the text, copy the text, then open up StreamTorrent manually. Next, on the top menu click Edit, then click Paste. StreamTorrent will now prompt you saying "1 New Stream has been added", you can then play it by double-clicking the stream on your list, or by clicking the stream once to high lite it, and then clicking the play button.

    StreamTorrent Link Issues.
    This isn't a problem with the program itself, but rather an issue that has appeared from time to time Due to the length of the st:// URL's, links have at times been listed with a space, or in a resolved form featuring the %20 hex code. Links with this issue will not work as the URL is broken. To fix this, simply remove the space. When posting a URL featuring an st:// URL, use the URL button on your post editor menu.


    Channel Name/Stream List Bug.
    There is a minor bug in the program. If you don't have your stream list cleared, you may have a random issue in which your newly loaded stream will be titled under a previously loaded channel name. Example: You previously loaded VP5, and now you just loaded TigerTown4. Because of this bug, TigerTown4 may appear as VP5 on your list. If you view it, it will be TigerTown4, just named VP5.

    The best way to resolve this issue is to clear your channel listing after each use. While this doesn't have any effect on playback, it will help eliminate any unnecessary confusion.
