Peer-to-peer video streaming

Written by Jari Ketola @ 18 Dec 2002 12:39

A Carnegie Mellon University research group has developed a peer to peer streaming video content distribution system called End System Multicast (ESM). The system constructs a self-organizing and adaptive overlay network using the receivers that are tuning into the broadcast events.
The group is currenlty looking for more users to test the system more thoroughly. Amongst the streams currently available are Triumph of the Nerds by Bob Cringely, distinguished lecture by Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, ACM SIGCOMM conference paper presentation by Dave Clark, and 2002 Sony Legged Robot Soccer Championship.

The streaming is QuickTime-based. You can join the test and start viewing the streams at:
