Does this make the browser itself a bittorrent client, or is that done by the server?

As far as I'm aware, you need something more than HTML5 to speak the bittorrent protocol.

All is done by the server. Unfortunately, we don't yet have a browser-only torrent client. WebTorrent isn't there yet.

Awesome ... if you can keep this running this will be my de facto movie watching site. No more primewire.ag!

I'll try to. MovBucket (the engine behind this) has been running for over a year now, and still going strong. I'm happy to make people's lives better and appreciate all feedback. I'm only sad there aren't more upvotes, because the previous popcorn thing got 400 upvotes.

This is awesome! I kind of don't want to push it to be mainstream to be shutdown... :P much selfish, very excite this site
