BitTorrent has recently introduced an innovative live streaming protocol to public, and now everyone can try it. Still, there are many people out there who are puzzled about the idea and need more details to start using the feature.
BitTorrent Live works as following: small groups (clubs) are assigned the broadcast data and then share the stream with a UDP protocol. Congestion control is added afterwards. After the company started sending out invitations to BitTorrent Live broadcaster applicants, it understood it has to also begin a series of technical articles to explain the product. You can find extensive technical info about the new feature at BitTorrent’s engineering blog. The company’s founder Bram Cohen filed patent application in September 2012 and is currently awaiting approval. If you really want to better understand BitTorrent Live, you can refer to the abovementioned engineering blog post.
Bram Cohen pointed out that the only thing cable could do better than streaming was live broadcasting, but innovative technology is now able to move that to the web without being cost prohibitive. BitTorrent is going to shape the future of live broadcasts and is planning to work with broadcasters to do that.
The service is claimed to be free to publishers and end-users, so it will have a competitive advantage. The idea of the protocol is that transmission instruments which are affordable and high-quality can be made accessible to anyone, and this news has generated quite a buzz, attracting public’s attention. The matter is that high quality video broadcasting is normally not easily reachable online, as it requires a CDN (Content Delivery Network), but the largest private network is operated by Google, which three years ago killed net neutrality.
In the meanwhile, the company is ready to introduce BitTorrent Sync to public as well. The company was talking about the launch of a syncing app similar to Dropbox a while ago, and made solid improvements to that service since then. Now BitTorrent Inc. is ready to announce its public version in April. While many users are happy to welcome the new BitTorrent offering, there are still some strong rival out there, including Microsoft’s SyncToy app and SyncBack SE.
