  Description     : bittorrent filesystem - mount any .torrent file as a read-
only filesystem

With BTFS, you can mount any .torrent file or magnet link and then use it as
any read-only directory in your file tree. The contents of the files will be
downloaded on-demand as they are read by applications. Tools like ls, cat and
cp works as expected. Applications like vlc and mplayer can also work without
Example usage

$ mkdir mnt
$ btfs video.torrent mnt
$ cd mnt
$ vlc video.mp4
