Tribler – An Innovative Decentralized BitTorrent Client
Tribler is an open source decentralized BitTorrent client that enables us to find, view, enjoy and share contents such as video, audio, pictures and more. Tribler has the following three main goals: Find content, Consume content and Share content. It is available for Windows, Mac, Android and Linux.
With built-in improved search functionality, you can easily find the right contents in right time from other Tribler users and as well as from giant media sites like Youtube. Tribler doesn’t rely on any external website or indexing services. Whenever you search for a content, it doesn’t come from a central server, instead it directly comes from the other Tribler user peers. So if the central server, torrent search engines and trackers goes down, Tribler keep the torrent alive and your download will be still available. So we can say that the downtime is zero seconds always.

If you find a useful content that you like most, rate it and share it with your friends, so that such kind of contents will be kept in high rated content category. The users who have same taste like you will find the content easily in near future.
