Techno - BlogTorrent / Torrent sharing using PHP

Here’s a nice little breakthrough. I often wondered how to broadcast videos and demos without the hassle of sucking bandwidth to my provider, and here it comes. It’s a nice way to install and/or share torrents using PHP and RSS feeds (as trackers) directly into a blog. That means more torrents to come because everybody can easily become a source of trackers.
I’m not so sure with the upload feature though (what security I have to avoid people uploadling illegal stuff on my webspace, not only .torrents?).
Well, it’s going to be a standard in the few days or not, we’ll see. ;)

What is Blog Torrent?
Blog Torrent is software that makes it much easier to share and download files using the bittorrent protocol. Blog Torrent is easy to install on your website: we don’t require MySQL so installation is as easy as uploading a folder to your web host, and all administration happens in the web interface. Blog Torrent is easy for users: even if they don’t know what bittorrent is, they get an installer that downloads the file they want. But most of all, Blog Torrent makes publishing with bittorrent painless. Just click “upload”, pick a file, and you’re done. This is our preview release and it has a lot of bugs and rough edges… but we’re smoothing them out for the next version, so stay tuned.
