Stream Torrent brings the best of internet video streaming and P2P technology together; it's a free app lets you both watch and broadcast live video on the web.
Like other similar tools, Stream Torrent makes use of the P2P protocol to broadcast video online, helped by thousands of users worldwide who share the workload by sending and receiving data at the same time.

As with any other app of this kind, results can vary a lot in Stream Torrent. The quality and stability of channels depends on signal strength, number of people tuning in to that channel and other factors.
Stream Torrent allows you to enjoy hundreds of streaming online video channels, though their quality varies a lot.
