Rapid bay is a self hosted video service/torrent client that makes playing videos from torrents as easy as: 1. Opening the webapp on a phone/laptop/tablet/smartTV. 2. Searching for content. 3. Selecting desired video file. 4. Waiting for Download/Conversion. 5. Playing on the device or cast to AppleTV/Chromecast


  • Supports using Jackett as a search backend(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).
  • Pick individual video files you want to play and the system takes care of the rest to make it streamable.
  • Automatic download of Closed Captions/Subtitles
  • Automatically converts the video file and subtitles to be playable on all browsers/chromecast/appletv
  • Automatically converts audio that is unsupported by browsers to AAC
  • Allows registering as a handler for any magnet link
  • Automatically cleans up disk space so you don't need to manage it yourself



Requires Docker

docker run -p 5000:5000 -p 6881:6881 -p 6881:6881/udp -e USERNAME= -e PASSWORD= hauxir/rapidbay
App will be running at http://localhost:5000

Configuring which subtitles to download:

The default setting downloads all subtitle languages but it might get slow if there are many for a given file.

To solve this you need to customize which languages you want.

Add the env variable SUBTITLELANGUAGES to your docker params like so: ``` -e SUBTITLELANGUAGES="['en', 'de', 'es']" ```

Using Jackett as a search backend:

Rapidbay supports using the torrent indexer Jackett for searching. Just provide the the env variables JACKETTHOST and JACKETTAPIKEY like so: ``` -e JACKETTHOST="http://your.jacket.host" -e JACKETTAPIKEY="YourAPIKey" ```

Registering as a handler for any magnet link:

  • Go to https://<RAPIDBAY_HOST>/registerHandler and it should prompt you to register your running RapidBay instance as a default handler for torrent links on any torrent site!
  • You can also copy/paste a magnet link directly into the search bar to open magnet links manually.


Requires Docker + docker-compose

docker-compose up
Default username and password is admin:123456
