is software for live media streaming online, or you can call
it P2P Streaming Internet TV. In principle it's similar to
BitTorrent(BT). The core operations are very simple: every
node periodically exchanges data availability information
with a set of partners, and retrieves unavailable data from
one or more partners, or supplies available data to partners.
It usually takes 15 to 20 minutes before one uploads to other
users are at a rate high enough for itself to download segments
in a sufficient rate. Therefore it is recommended to establish
a connection as early as possible before the starting time
of a desired event. The more users sharing segments there
are the better stream each one of them will get.
