       btfs - Mount .torrrent files or magnet links as a local filesystem


       btfs [OPTIONS]... metadata mountpoint


       ftbfs  uses  fuse  (filesystem  in  user  space) to expose a bittorrent source as a normal
       directory on your filesystem. It's possible to use  the  files  in  the  mounted  path  as
       ordinary files and standard utilities such as cp, cat and ls will work as expected.

       You  will  also  be  able  to  play videos using your video player and seek through a file
       without having to download the entire contents of the torrent.
