What is FrostWire?

FrostWire, a BitTorrent Client & YouTube Downloader that makes it easier to search, download, play and share content from the BitTorrent network & cloud sources, all in one place, announced today its new ‘preview’ and ‘play as you download’ capabilities for Android phones and tablets. The new preview feature not just enables users with a more convenient way to find and discover content, it makes downloading optional in some cases.

Get a VPN

If you want to protect your privacy while you’re browsing on the Internet, or using FrostWire, or any App, we strongly recommend you to get a VPN. VPN stands for a Virtual Private Network. It’s a service that provides you a secure encrypted connection to other computers on the internet, some VPN services also provide anonymity when connecting to servers and other computers online. If you do not connect to the internet via VPN, all information coming out of your computer, including your IP address, is open to whoever wants to access them.

How to read FrostWire’s Executable stdout output

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 4.13.54 PM

If you sudo lsof -n | grep FrostWire | grep "/dev/null" on a Mac to see where the stdout is going to, you will see that FrostWire’s console output is going to /dev/null, and redirecting a process output in OSX isn’t something at least we could find was easy to do as in Linux, where several developers have created utilities for this purpose.

Luckily, if you run the Mac FrostWire executable manually on your terminal, you will be able to see the stdout output being redirected to your terminal window (e.g. /dev/ttys004)

So simply do the following if you’d like to read the  stdout output.

1. Open Terminal

2. cd /Applications/FrostWire.app/Contents/MacOS (or wherever else you may have dropped the FrostWire.app)

3. ./FrostWire

Listo! you should now be reading FrostWire’s stdout output.
