BitLord is a freeware, ad-supported and proprietary BitTorrent client for Microsoft Windows and macOS, promoted as "The easiest torrent downloader". The program uses the libtorrent-rasterbar C++ library. BitLord is as of version 2.4 built using Python and the Qt cross-platform framework. It is capable of streaming video, using a built in version of VLC.[1]

BitLord was first released in December 2004, as BitLord 0.56, based on and under license from BitComet. From version 1.2 until 2.3.2 BitLord, was based on Deluge, but has added several features of its own since then.

Criticism[edit]

Old releases of BitLord (up to version 1.1) are based on the source code of version 0.56 of the BitComet core. Because of this, certain bugs that have been resolved in later versions of BitComet were still prevalent in BitLord. In 2007, BitLord 2.0 Beta resolved these issues and added eDonkey support.[2] The beta version is no longer available from the BitLord website, though installers hosted on other servers still work.

The only major changes in releases of BitLord prior to version 1.2 were the addition of advertisements into the BitLord interface and the replacement of BitComet's list of BitTorrent sites with a search box.
