Download Torrents Safely by using a Remote Seedbox - Seedr

A few years ago I shared a free seedbox (JustSeed.it) offer with you all. Unfortunately, that service has since gone down in quality and the owner has made some questionable decisions that for one reason or another, simply can't be trusted. Not to mention the service was also extremely buggy and suffered from uptime issues.

Fortunately, nearly 3 years later I'm happy to share a new seedbox service. Seedr is a new startup from Israel that lets you download torrents remotely. They have a free plan that provides a healthy amount of space and paid plans that offer a very generous allotment of data compared to competitors. The service is very fast, and the reliability has been impeccable. If you download a video or movie file, they will even transcode it and allow you to watch it directly from their service (pro tip: their video player even supports streaming it to your Chromecast, and it works amazingly well - better than Streamcast and other Chromecast plugins).

Seedr lets you upload a torrent or magnet link to start download files immediately. You can easily manage you completed downloads and delete or compress files before downloading them. The user interface is put together very well and the speeds are incredible.

I will admit that it's early in the startups lifespan, and I'm a little afraid that the service could become a victim of its own popularity (signups are now open to everyone and with that could come a lot of riff-raff). If you regularly download torrents, give Seedr a chance - it's really a great service!
