Get started and Screenshots

Tribler is easy and fast

Tribler can find files for you. No need for websites.

Tribler can do 100 Mbps, sadly we cannot fix slow Internet or poor swarms.

Lots of "pro" features: magnet links, streaming, sub-second search, channels and our upcoming anonymous mode.

The basics

Search for content

Type in what you want in the search bar and hit <enter>. Play with your search keywords until you find something you want.

Download content

Download by double-clicking on any search result. Single-click to see details such as size and included files.

Consume content

When you click on search results you can also select "Stream". This activates the integrated video and audio player. No need to wait for downloads to complete, with streaming you can use Bittorrent in Youtube-style.

Extra options

Filter the content found

You can quickly filter the search results if they contain hundreds of hits. You can sort the matches, or set a "size limit" to determine which results are shown.

Magnet links

Use the "plus" icon in the upper right corner to quickly stream or download magnet links.


Channels are a bunch of torrents managed by a user like you. Use "mark as favorite" to keep up to date with all content of a channel. This also signals others automatically that this is a cool legit channel and prevents spam.


Everybody can start their own "My Channel" from within Tribler. Share dozens to 12000 torrents with the whole world. Freshly added torrent spread to all subscribers in minutes.
