BitTorrent- Increase the streaming buffer size

To increase the streaming buffer size of BitTorrent (a longer loading time, before media is being streamed):
  • Click on the Options menu > Preferences > Streaming.
  • Use the slider under "Streaming Buffer Size" to your convenience.
  • Click on Apply and then on OK.

Increasing the buffer size is recommended if you have a slow internet connection, in order to avoid any interruption during media playback.
