btplay - Directly play video torrents using btfs.


btplay [OPTIONS]... torrentlink


btfs uses fuse (filesystem in user space) to expose a bittorrent source as a normal
directory on your filesystem.

btplay is a wrapper for btfs that mounts and plays the video directly without a user
having to specify a mount point. You can pass either a .torrent link or a magnet link
contained in single quotation marks.
