You can preview it just not while its downloading. close utorrent or whatever you use then use VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Also if the video file is part of many in the torrent ex: 1 show of a season you can give that particular episode higher priority so it will finish first. As soon as that episode hits 100% you can view it while the torrent is still dl'ing

Default Re: Which is the best torrent download app to use?

well, i used azureus... but i didn't like it because the memory managment of the program was bad (and it took too much resource...)
then i moved to utorrent... (its not bad...) and then to bitcomet... and i used bitcomet for couple of month.. now i use both utorrent and bitcomet..!

Right now with utorrent I have 12 seeds going, and it uses a whopping 3.7MB of my RAM. While residing in the system tray it uses about 2.5MB.

I'm using Bitcomet myself, but since utorrent is getting lots of recommendations, I'm going to try that as well.
