Guide to Watch Stream on StreamTorrentWhat 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 the following URL below.
There are several ways to open up a StreamTorrent stream. When using p2p-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
- Streamtorrent has also advertisements like any other platform. You don't have to click it, just wait until it has buffered above the 30% mark and the ads will go away and the channel will start to work
StreamTorrent Link Issues.
This isn't a problem with the program itself, but rather an issue that has appeared occasionally on the myp2pforum. 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.
The Facts Behind the *******/Internet Explorer Issue.
In an attempt to be helpful, and resolve one of the issues with StreamTorrent (the one listed above), I introduced a ******* URL for the popular stream VP5. This URL is still currently in circulation because it does work. However, ******* and Internet Explorer don't get along when processing the st:// URL from this, and will not work with Internet Explorer. This is a non-issue for Firefox users, as the stream will load perfectly fine in StreamTorrent, so it's just one more reason to switch, right? Right.
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.
Have a question that isn't answered above? Ask, and I'll do my best to provide an answer.Question: I used IE and it took one click and it worked. I thought it didn't work?
Answer: The only time a StreamTorrent link doesn't work is when ******* is used to shorten the lengthy st:// URL. If a link is a complete st:// URL without the space in it, it'll work in IE. For more information about the ******* issue, look above.
Question: Does StreamTorrent Work with VLC?
Answer: Yes, both broadcasting and stream viewing are possible using VLC. The same method used for TVAnts/SopCast works with StreamTorrent.

Question: How do you make StreamTorrent stay on top?
Answer: It's easy.
Question: When I load a StreamTorrent stream, why does it say "Quality: Expired. Audience: Expired"?
Answer: When a StreamTorrent stream is old, and has been started and stopped more than once by the streamer, it will display this until it updates on your stream list. The stream is still running, and will play despite this.
Question: How do you use the Filter feature?
Answer: The Filter feature is meant for usage when you've got an extensive list of already added channels to your list of streams. You can narrow it and find a specific, previously viewed stream that is still on your list by typing in the filter box. It's a live filtering search, and will trim your list to your desired channel.
Question: How do you use the Search feature?
Answer: To use the Search feature...
Question: StreamTorrent buffers but doesn't play anything.
