    Thumbs up BitTorrent Live Beta

    BitTorrent Live Beta



    About
    While in Beta, BitTorrent Live requires that you update to the latest version of the client before continuing. Please do so by clicking the link below and following the on screen instructions.

    BitTorrent Live is a new peer-to-peer live streaming protocol. It allows content creators to scale their reach to audiences of millions with near-zero latencies and minimal infrastructure investment.

    Leveraging the lessons of the original BitTorrent protocol, BitTorrent Live has been designed from scratch as the perfect means of sharing events to the masses in real-time, but without the astronomical bandwidth requirements that traditionally constrain content creators. Every viewer that joins a swarm extends its reach by sharing pieces of the video to other viewers. Media is delivered with stunningly low delay by utilizing a UDP Screamer protocol. Video and audio are transmitted using the industry standard H.264 and AAC codecs, providing the highest quality.

    BitTorrent Live is still under heavy development, and as such, is available as a technology demonstration only. The ability to run a video source is not currently available to end users. Once the protocol has been finalized we expect to allow user generation of content. The experience may not be perfect yet, but we strive daily to improve it, and welcome your input and experiences.

    I tried to search for it and it doesn't seem to be mentioned whether Bittorrent Live is p2p (serverless) or centralized (with server)? If it is not serverless it will not be better than StreamTorrent since StreamTorrent is pure p2p, it will just be another client like SopCast and totally controlled.

    BitTorrent Live required an upload speed of 2Mb. If you're having issues watching the stream, this could be the problem.
    This is a good reason to give it a try...mainly thinking of nowdays...

That (last part) necessitated, more or less, an entire re-write.
    How long have we been hearing this sh!t now, the way it looks at the moment is if your a DJ and want to promote your music...?

    BitTorrent Live is a powerful new live web streaming technology. Designed to eliminate barriers to broadcast, Live leverages parts of the BitTorrent protocol to deliver high quality video to large audiences - with significant reductions of infrastructure costs and network delays.

    BitTorrent Live is currently under development in Beta. Do you regularly webcast? Do you want to help us invent the future of live streaming? See if you qualify to participate in our Beta program.
    Contribute to our Beta Program: Become a Live Broadcaster

    We are currently testing and refining our technology with a small group of live broadcasters. Beta broadcasters are given a BitTorrent Live account, allowing them to stream content to large audiences across the web, at no cost.

    Want to join our Beta program? We're looking for broadcasters who:

    Stream video content constantly
    Have a large audience
    Are interested in shaping a new powerful streaming service

    Sign up to see if you qualify.
    Register/Login

    I don't know, I have mixed feelings, they want to have some information about streamer and stream. This probably indicating that they will be under the influence of DMCA.
    I hesitate a lot, I don't want to send information they want. Something tells me that this doesn't smell as it should
