Found it! Peerflix. Can download a torrent file or a magnet link. Provides a http link which can be used to play it using any player that can play HTTP links, including hardware players. Tested it a little - playing and seeking works well.

Disadvantage - it uses Node.JS, so it can be problematic to run it on a NAS with 256 RAM (Task manager under windows shows 130 MB RAM and 160 Mb virtual memory).
