This sounds interesting enough to keep an  eye out for - it might appear on my default programs list ; -)

Not yet tested, will do soon enough  >:D

Torrents are a good source of various audio and video media. Their popularity keeps on increasing day by day, as they provide an easy way to share large files over the internet easily. While the popular torrent downloader software – uTorrent – includes a streaming option, enabling you to start playing audio/video content whilst you are still downloading, it cannot double as a local media player as well. This drawback, or rather a limitation of uTorrent brings us in search of a player, which will not only function as a multimedia player, but will also stream files hosted on the internet, including torrents.
Rox Player is one software which has impressed me a lot. It can be used to not only play local files, but also stream torrents in real time. Given its potential to play different protocols such as IPTV, HTTP, DHT, and P2P, it can turn your PC/laptop in to a TV, allowing you to play any audio/video available either on the internet or locally.
Rox Player is currently available only for Windows operating system and comes with support for Windows XP/Vista/7/8. The current stable version at the time of writing this post is 1.480.
ROX Player is a lightweight yet powerful media player, and comes with a simple and easy to use interface. The automatic codec update feature provides you the liberty to play any media file without having the need to have specific codec installed on your system. Every time it encounters need for a new codec, it will download the same for you without any intervention.
After adding a torrent, the player starts buffering and even shows you the download rate in the top right corner, as shown below.
You can also get to see the details of the torrent pieces downloaded and the download speed chart by clicking the download speed displayed in the top right corner.
1. Simple interface and easy to use.
2. Supports IPTV, HTTP, DHT, and P2P protocols.
3. Control on download speed.
4. Able to add multiple media to playlist.
5. Able to take snapshot of the playing media from within the player (Menu View->Create Snapshot)
6. Supports video adjustment by providing user a full control over 5 parameters.
7. Light on system resources.
8. Support for addition of subtitle to the media.
9. Able to associate with .torrent and magnet links.
10. Comes with multiple aspect ratios to support and use per your need.
1. For reasons best known to developer, it doesn’t installs in Program files. Rather it gets installed in the location- \user\current\Local Settings\Application Data\ROX Player
2. No option to have the player minimize to system tray.
3. No offline help is available.
All-in-all ROX Player is a reliable, intuitive and user-friendly application that leverages its capability of playing several protocols, thereby enabling one to play the multimedia files no matter if they are stored locally on a hard disk or somewhere on the internet. It is completely Free to use and is updated frequently.
I’m sure by now you will be curious to lay your hands on Rox Player. So without holding you further, let me point you to the download page here. The installer file (install-roxplayer.msi) tests clean on Virus Total.
How to use Rox Player to stream Torrents in Real time
1. Open the player and click on File menu.
2. From the File menu, click on “Open .torrent” and select either a torrent magnet link or a torrent URL/File.
3.  Once selected, the media file will start buffering and will begin streaming after appropriate amount of data is available and buffered.
Plugins available
Currently ROX Player supports two plugins namely, TopMovies Torrent Search and Yify Movies Torrent Search.
Wise Words
By default  Rox Player is set to clear the downloaded data upon program restart. So should in case you want to have the downloaded/streamed file for later viewing, you must either copy the file (from ROXData folder) for later viewing, or even better disable the option “Clean downloaded data automatically on program start” from Menu->Options->Configuration->Bit Torrent tab.
Per developer, should incase you come across a “Go Premium” message while streaming torrents, it is suggested to press "Continue for free" to continue streaming without any restriction.
Do share with us (though comments) your experience with Rox Player.
Happy Streaming!!

Karma, for sure!

Get more out of your movies with free Torrent Video Player!

Are you tired of having to wait for hours for your video torrents to download before you can play them? Fortunately, there is an entirely new way of dealing with torrent video downloads and that is by using Free Torrent Video Player. Torrents have become one of the most popular ways to share and download content, including video files and other multimedia files. Torrents generally offer high speeds as well, particularly in cases where you have more seeders than peers. When you are choosing which torrent to download, you should always go for the one which has the best ratio between seeders and peers due to the fact that the seeders already have the complete video file on their computer for downloading. Peers, by contrast, only have part of the file available. However, even with a good seeders to peers ratio, torrents can still take a long time to download. A high-definition movie file, for example, may be over four gigabytes in size and, on most connections, this can take a couple of hours to download.
Watch Instantly

Free Torrent Video Player completely revolutionizes your torrent video downloading experience. Traditional torrent clients generally only let you download torrents without providing any functionality allowing you to preview it, let alone watch the movie as it is downloading. Torrent Video Player, on the other hand, works just like your favorite media player thanks to its familiar and intuitive features. No longer do you have to wait for the entire torrent to download before you can start watching the video content contained within it. It is rather like watching a streaming video over a video-sharing website. The interface is easy to use and it is based on the immensely popular and highly versatile media player. Torrent Video Player will truly change the way you watch your movies!

Easy to use
Some of the mainstream torrent clients do provide a basic preview feature which allows you to watch at least a small part of the video before the whole thing is downloaded, but these features often lack reliability and are often difficult to use. Traditional torrent clients also download files in a different way to how Torrent Video Player does. They do not download the file contiguously, making it impossible to actually watch the video from the start before it has finished downloading. Torrent Video Player will download the file in the correct way however so that you don't have to wait.

Completely free!
If you want to be able to enjoy torrent videos without the annoying restrictions imposed by the traditional torrent clients, then Torrent Video Player is precisely the answer that you should be looking for. Best of all, the program is completely free! Now you will be able to download and play at the same time, allowing you to watch any movie at any time!
