Seedess Guide

Last updated 3 months ago

Seedess can be used to stream your existing videos over Bittorrent and browser P2P transparently. You can also stream video from BitTorrent directly.

P2P Streaming

Your existing videos can benefit greatly from transparent P2P streaming. Transparent P2P streaming allows viewers of your video to optimally share pieces of the video with each other while they watch - increasing the streaming capacity of your server and increasing video download speed.

Demo

Install Guide

At the moment we are working on releasing an open source transparent P2P video streaming library as well as a hosted solution.

For now you try out the BitTorrent streaming API below.

Streaming directly from BitTorrent

To stream from BitTorrent in the browser all you need is a torrentId.

A torrentId can be an infoHash, magnet or .torrent file.

Quick magnet example

To stream a magnet, add the magnet to the seedess player URL, https://play.seedess.com/

Example magnet

The following magnet is for an mp4 video.

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ab3f1350ebe4563a710545d0e33e09a7b7943ecf

Player URL

The player URL loads the video player. You can generate a video player for any magnet by appending the magnet to the end of https://play.seedess.com/

Copy and paste the below player example to your browser URL.

Video Player URL
