Looking for a torrent client to satisfy your download needs? There are certainly plenty to choose from and most client offer very much the same set of the features and options. Tribler is a program that aims to be a little different while still offering everything you would expect from a torrent client. There is not only support for torrent and magnet links, there is also the ability to stream video using the on demand feature.

As you would expect, you can perform searches for anything you might be interested in downloading, but Tribler focuses quite strongly on the community aspect of using BitTorrent. The main screen of the app is home to not only the search bar, but also a tag cloud so you can see what other people have been looking for – if something inspires you, just click the tag to perform the search yourself.

If you would prefer that the tag cloud did not show a particular type of more adult content, there is a family filter that can be easily switched on and off. In some respects, Tribler is similar in style to newsgroups, and you also have the option of browsing through the dozens of channels that are available. You can set up your own Tribler channel if you have files you would like to share with other people, or you might prefer to contribute to an existing channel.

Just as with other torrent clients you can limit your upload and download speeds to balance how your internet connection is used, but it is the video on demand feature that is particularly interesting, While this is not a unique feature, it has been well implemented and reduces the time you need to wait to watch a video you are particularly keep on. Whatever torrent client you are using at the moment, this is one that you should take a look at.

What's new in 7.4.4 (see changelog for more):

- Hacky fix for config upgrading
- Backport TorrentChecker fixes from devel
- Removed set_filepieceranges
- Catch ValueErrors in connect_to_tracker (to deal with invalid urls)
- Fix for checkpoint timeouts
- Fix dir writability check

Verdict:

An intriguing cross-platform torrent client with enough features to make it stand out from the crowd.
