Mount a torrent (or magnet link) as a filesystem in real time using torrent-stream and fuse.
AKA MAD SCIENCE!
npm install -g torrent-mount
You also need to install fuse. See this link for more info.
Open a terminal and cd to a directory where you want to mount your torrent
Usage: torrent-mount <source>... [options] source .torrent file or magnet link to open Options: -m PATH, --mount PATH Mount location path [directory] [.] -l, --lazy Download only if accessed
After doing that open the same directory using a file browser. The files of the torrent should be mounted there now and you should be able to double-click them to start streaming as regular files!
Download the latest osxfuse
dmg using this link and install it
The one provided by brew doesn't always seem to work. You also need pkg-config:
brew install pkg-config
