Bittorrent is (Clean) although you just have to untick and decline some offers.

My question, Can any of the torrent clients can play media contents while downloading? I assume uTorrent can. I dont know about the rest. Because i havent used any. U can get rid of adware (Disabling Ads) if u are smart enough to choose uTorrent.

Adware is defined as, if any software has installer bundled with items that are not required for core functioning of the software, like toolbars, product offers, etc, and if after-installation it shows ads/offers during run-time or nag the user in any similar way.

That depends on the media player that you're using. If you're using PotPlayer, you could.

I assume you're talking about videos.

Am using Tixati and as it downloads videos, you just need to go into the folder, and PotPlayer plays the incomplete files for me.

Its been a long time since i ran an installer of uTorrent in my pc. I only knew that the applications used to post ads in the UI. Disabling that was a easy task for me. Seems like the latest versions come with all the offers:p

Depends on the media player? Are u sure ? Because earlier i had Power DVD, they used to play media files when downloading in u torrent. For a while i was playing with torrent clients that suits my requirements then i opened this to find an answer myself . http://malwaretips.com/threads/which-is-the-best-torrent-downloader.23006/

Incomplete video playback depends on the media player capabilities. Even if the video is incompletely downloaded inside a compressed (.rar) file then PotPlayer will still be able to play it.

Qbittorrent here.
It's the fastest client basing on my experience, and one of the easiest to use and set up :)

I'm currently using µTorrent (v3.3.2) as my torrent client. I rarely torrent things but if I need 'something' I use torrents. I've never used torrents enough to NEED another client. µTorrent does exactly what I need it to do.
I know that µTorrent comes with a lot of Adware, but I looked through the installer well and didn't get any installed on my machine.

For me it depends on the OS, I use:
If Linux: Deluge
If Windows: qBittorrent
