uTorrent 30 goes beta with remote control ratings and video streaming

first_imgWith more than 100 million active users around the world, uTorrent is far and away the most popular torrent downloading application. If you’re a fan and don’t mind running software with a few rough edges, the just-released uTorrent 3.0 beta is waiting for you and it offers some extremely useful new features.Among them you’ll find two community-driven quality controls. Any torrent you can download can be rated and commented upon, which should help other uTorrent users to decided whether or not a particular file is worth the hit against their bandwidth allowance (assuming your ISP has a cap system in place). Few download-related tasks are as infuriating as throwing away precious time and megabytes transferring a file which turns out to be bogus or non-functional. uTorrent 3.0 beta also introduces media streaming capabilities, allowing you to take a sneak peek at your video downloads like Pioneer One before they finish.AdChoices广告uTorrent Web, the browser-based tool which lets you remotely manage your transfers, is also included in version 3 and there’s a companion mobile app for those of you with an Android device. Maybe you’d prefer to just take all your downloads with you? In that case, you can install uTorrent as a fully portable application to an external hard drive of USB (or eSATA) flash drive for on-the-go file sharing. There’s also a drop zone for dead-simple torrent creation, allowing even the greenest peer-to-peer user to easily share files with the outside world.And yes, like any quality geeky platform in the 21st century, uTorrent 3.0 support apps. There are plenty of interesting options to check out, like uMap (which plots users in your swarm on a map) and Torrent Tweet (for those times when you want to shout your latest find from the top of the highest social network mountains).You can find the uTorrent 3.0 beta on the official download page.More at the BitTorrent Blog and TorrentFreaklast_img read more
