Introduction:

Peercast is a free online TV application based on advanced p2p technology. There is no central server, each user can be a client, server or broadcaster of streams. So it’s considered as a robust network. PeerCast.org was established in April 2002 as a non-profit site providing free P2P radio software. The aim of the project is to create an easy to use, simple and reliable software client that enables anyone to broadcast streaming media on the Internet without the need for expensive servers or bandwidth.
