Now the Pirate Bay lets you stream just about anything for free

Pirate Bay logoLegalities aside, there is one problem with content made available through the likes of the Pirate Bay. Whether you use traditional torrents or magnet links, you'll (usually) need to wait for a download to complete before you can enjoy the movie, show, or album of your choice. But not anymore.

A new beta feature for the world-famous torrent site makes it possible to stream videos without the need to download them first. By integrating the Torrents-Time plugin, the Pirate Bay now includes a Stream It option for all video torrents.

Of course, pirate streams are nothing new, but integrating the option into such a high-profile site helps to bring it to the masses. It means that the Pirate Bay can now be considered more of a destination rather than just a means to an end -- searching and viewing can now all take place in the browser without the need for any additional software.

Just as with downloading torrents, the ability to stream is dependent on connecting to a large enough number of seeds. Perform a search as normal, and as well as the familiar comment and magnet links, you'll also find a Stream It link. Click this and a new window will open to house the selected video -- the first time steaming is attempted, users are prompted to install the Torrents-Time plugin.

The player itself is a fairly basic affair -- this is a beta, remember -- but it still includes subtitles, Chromecast, Airplay, and DLNA support. It works with Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows and OS X.
