NSV and P2P finally became real thing

I'm just testing this new program called Goalbit (already found by sankt and listed on SCVI)
I'm glad to notice that it supports NSV relay from a Shoutcast Server.

If anyone is interested we can publish our results.
However it's a great news in my opinion.

I had a second look at the updated version and they have made some good improvements.

Three things that I noticed :

Lack of code for the tracking server.

Lack of information on the tracking server.

Lack of information on building the complete Linux package.
( There is a make file, but thats for VLC. )

Excellent catch on the Linux information :
http://apps.sourceforge.net/mediawik...itle=Main_Page

Here is the project page
sourceforge.net/projects/goalbit/

Any info on the central tracker, or is it a "peerless" system.

I have installed the software on my linux box and I like it a lot.

It's easy to use and one of the best open source P2P applications there is. It supports bittorrent style streaming, without having to jump through a lot of hoops.

I will be adding a software guide page to scvi.net soon.

It will support H.264 and AAC+ right out of the box. Another key feature is the Internal station directory.

Good Stuff !

They have updated the software with version 0.4.1.
Nice improvements !

The BitTorrent streaming / swarm streaming is far superior than the branch point to point relay methods used by previous open source peer to peer streaming software applications.

P2P is Peer to Peer content distribution.

P2P has nothing to do with the Play Station game console.

GoalBit 0.6.1 is released, its has now Kademlia feature, there is no more Trackers needed.

Quote:
Goalbit Media Player is the open-source software that can connect to and play Goalbit channels. This player is based on the VLC media player, an open-source project with a very successful career and millions of downloads. It is available for downloading from http://goalbit.sourceforge.net/downloads.html , where there are links to the Windows executable and its source code. The Goalbit Project is always concerned in the multi-platform property of the player, so that is why the source code compiles for Linux, Windows and Mac users, and nobody has to feel excluded

The Goalbit Project is responsible for its birth and development through academic funds dedicated to the investigations of P2P networks. It is in constant development and always trying to incorporate useful and successful innovations out there!

Among the variety of characteristis The Goalbit Team is proud of, the main characteristics of the Goalbit player are:

# Open-source software, under GPL license.
# Multi-plataform (Linux, Windows, Mac).
# Does what it says it does. That means, there are no announced funcionalities that are not implemented, and it does not mean that it works under any conditions!
# It's easy to try a P2P broadcast for yourself, and even easier to tune its configuration to your needs!
# Supports all the codecs supported by VLC (that is because one of the major concerns is to have the latest version of VLC incorporated!).
# Its cool logo

goalbit.sourceforge.net/whats_new_in_0.6.2.html

Bug fix: Broadcasting mode from GUI.

Bug fix and improvements in Kad protocol.
Note: Kad protocol of Goalbit 0.6.2 is still compatible with Goalbit 0.6.1 clients, but we highly recommend you to update your version.

Bug fix: Much lower cpu usage
