Usage

Peerflix can be used with a magnet link or a torrent file. To stream a video with its magnet link use the following command.

peerflix "magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ef330b39f4801d25b4245212e75a38634bfc856e" --vlc

Remember to put

"
around your magnet link since they usually contain
&
.
peerflix
will print a terminal interface. The first line contains an address to a http server. The
--vlc
flag ensures vlc is opened when the torrent is ready to stream.

peerflix

To stream music with a torrent file use the following command.

peerflix "http://some-torrent/music.torrent" -a --vlc

The

-a
flag ensures that all files in the music repository are played with vlc. Otherwise if the torrent contains multiple files,
peerflix
will choose the biggest one. To get a full list of available options run peerflix with the help flag.
peerflix --help

peerflix magnet-link --list # Select from a list of files to download
peerflix magnet-link --vlc -- --fullscreen # will pass --fullscreen to vlc
peerflix magnet-link --mplayer --subtitles subtitle-file.srt # play in mplayer with subtitles
peerflix magnet-link --connection 200 # set max connection to 200
