Explaining Bittorrent to users with little technical understanding can be a time consuming task. You might be up for it if friends or family members are concerned but what if you distribute your content via Bittorrent to thousands of strangers who want to download the content but have no clue what Bittorrent is or does ? How about a simple application that uses the Bittorrent protocol to download a single file that requires zero configuration on client side ? Bitcomet Lite
is that application. It basically offers a way to create an executable that downloads one torrent from the Bittorrent network. That torrent is hard coded into the application which means that only this one release can be downloaded. The application on the client side basically consists of a progress bar and download button that has to be pressed to start the download. Thatís it.
The seeder, or creator of the file has to compile the executable which is more or less an automatic process. A torrent file and some other data has to be specified and Bitcomet Lite will automatically create the executable which can be tested immediately and then distributed on a website or network.
The download can be interrupted anytime and the user has the option to save the part that he downloaded so far or remove the partial download from the system. Bitcomet Lite provides distributors with an interesting alternative to Torrent downloads by providing executables that download the files over the same network. Itís a little bit inflexible but great for files that do not change over time. Bitcomet Lite
