StreamTorrent and Windows 10

So, the good news is that StreamTorrent works just as well with Windows 10 as it did with previous operating systems.

I have, however updated the SmiteRedX utility to recognise Win10.

If you are still running StreamTorrent succeddfully, then you need take no action.

If, however, you are having the RedX problem, then perhaps running this utility may help.

How to Install StreamTorrent for the First Time

This guide is for people wishing to install StreamTorrent for the first time

Step 1: Download StreamTorrent and Install it

Download StreamTorrent NE. Run the program following the prompts as you progress

You should note that the only version that worls nowadays is StreamTorrent NE. Lots of other sites will offer downloads of StreamTorrent Build 0078. They no longer work, and should be avoided.

Step 2: Run Streamtorrent NE and allow it through your Firewall

The first time you run StreamTorrent NE, your firewall should prompt you to allow or deny access. Click “Allow”. If you are not prompted by your firewall, you will need to add it manually.

Step 3: Update the Peer Node File

Because StreamTorrent is a trackerless P2P system, the information about peers in the swarm is held on the local hard drive. Over time, if StreamTorrent is not used, this data goes out of date, So New installs and users who had not connected for many months found that they were unable to connect. To correct this. I created a script named SmiteRedX that updated the swarm data, and running this corrects the problem.

So you need to close out of StreamTorrent NE completely and install the SmiteRedX Patch

Step 4: How to Open a StreamTorrent Stream.

Copy and Pasting.

For Text-based ST URL’s (st://………..): Select the text, copy the text, then open up StreamTorrent manually. On the top menu click Edit, then click Paste. StreamTorrent will now prompt you saying “1 New Stream has been added”, you can then play it by double-clicking the stream on your list, or by clicking the stream once to highlite it, and then clicking the play button.

StreamTorrent has Expired? – The Solution

StreamTorrent is displaying a message that it has expired and you need to update the app. Unfortunately, the link it takes you to is a MALWARE SITE! You are best advised to NEVER CLICK THE “YES” BUTTON on this notification

However, there is a fix…and you need to do exactly as it instructs.

Step 1: Remove the old version

It is essential that you remove the old version by using Control Panel. The new version is placed in a different folder, so does not over-write the existing version. If you don’t complete this step properly, you will have two versions on your system, leading to major problems

In particular do NOT use any third party uninstallers like Revo or CCleaner. These will remove your existing StreamTorrent configuration files and you will lose your stream lists and also the data files you need to avoid the dreaded Red X and an inability to connect.

Step 2: Download the new version and Install it

Download StreamTorrent NE. Run the program following the prompts as you progress

Step 3: Run Streamtorrent NE and allow it through your Firewall

The first time you run StreamTorrent NE, your firewall should prompt you to allow or deny access. Click “Allow”. If you are not prompted by your firewall, you will need to add it manually. Your existing permissions will not apply, because the program has a different name to the current version of StreamTorrent.

You should now be able to use StreamTorrent indefinitely. It should look and feel exactly as before. So, for example, clicking the hyperlink to an ST stream should automatically load the application and start the stream buffering.If your stream does no connect after a few minutes, then you should first check that your firewall is not blocking StreamTorrent NE. If that has been correctly allowed, then try applying the SmiteRedX Patch

Right now…there is no fix for MAC OS or Linux,
