btfs - Mount .torrrent files or magnet links as a local filesystem


btfs [OPTIONS]... metadata mountpoint


ftbfs uses fuse (filesystem in user space) to expose a bittorrent source as a normal
directory on your filesystem. It's possible to use the files in the mounted path as
ordinary files and standard utilities such as cp, cat and ls will work as expected.

You will also be able to play videos using your video player and seek through a file
without having to download the entire contents of the torrent.
