Redecentralize

We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

WebRTC can speak whatever protocol you want (you can design your own). WebTorrent is going to speak the same BitTorrent protocol, as much as possible. WebRTC does not allow you to open arbitrary TCP or UDP sockets, which is what I think you're asking.

recognition? That's the hardest part of a project like this. It's not all about the tech – in fact, if WebTorrent is working correctly, the user won't even be able to tell that the video is P2P vs. HTTP.

feross [GG] WebTorrent Desktop - open source streaming torrent client 2016-04-06 17:28:00
folks! Just wanted to share that the WebTorrent Project just shipped WebTorrent Desktop (BETA) today! https://webtorrent.io/desktop WebTorrent Desktop bridges the WebTorrent and BitTorrent networks. If enough people end up running it, BitTorrent in the browser will really happen. Projects like the Internet Archive can make huge files available

WebTorrent Desktop ( https://webtorrent.io/desktop ) as a torrent client, almost daily.  I also use Instant ( https://instant.io ) to send files to friends without using a centralized service, or an app you need to install like Dropbox. I've used Patchwork ( https://ssbc.github.io/patchwork/

Michiel, WebTorrent Desktop behaves similar to other torrent clients. You need to manually add torrents to the client. We don't want to make the client automatically download popular content, or seed it, or anything like that. The user should decide what to share since the content could be unencrypted
