Is p2p video stream doing quite well?
I remember there were a few options back in the day (PPLive?, Octoshape?
I can't remember the names). And I know that Akamai is quietly doing
a *lot* of P2P video streaming. And I keep hearing rumors of
progressive download/playback Torrent clients (I know we did this at
Swoosh with rather disappointing results).
Adam - I don't think Littleshoot does live streaming, but does it do
progressive download and playback of audio/video?
So the technology is definitely available and has been for some time.
But I sorta agree with Abhishek that it hasn't really taken off. Like,
even the torrent apps that do support it only do so as a rather hidden
or experimental feature. Why hasn't it become the default mode?
