"Play" button missing for video torrents

Recommended Posts

Hi,

This bug report is very.. well, simple.

Video torrents were previously playable from within utorrent by pressing a "Play" button that was present in a separate column corresponding to the torrent.

The version I'm using is μTorrent 3.5.5 Beta (build 45033).

Tried reinstalling it, looking over the options etc, but could not find anything.

Thanks

@mike20021969 thanks for mentioning it. But that "Play" button was opening the external program I set in the options, not some embedded player.

Are you sure we are talking about the same thing? Why is there still an option to select your "external" media player for utorrent (in the Playback section of the Preferences), but no actual play button? Seems kind of stupid.

Try to "Reset" the columns and you will find Playback comes back (although it wont show as a column choice though). However, upon restarting uTorrent you may find it goes again.

Alternatively, double clicking a (playable) file it from within uTorrent's lower pane under Files - so now 2 clicks as opposed to the 1 previously - will launch your default application.
