P2P streaming project

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 30 Jun 2002 1:04

Slashdot has a short story about a project that would allow running a pirate radio without a real possibility for content owners to track the origin of the stream.
The project, which is explained in here, is based on P2P mechanism, so that each individual who listens the stream, will also rebroadcast the stream to other users. This method will reduce the bandwidth required from origin station to very minimum amount and also makes tracking the amount of listeners the station has, virtually impossible.
