I've always believed that P2P Streaming is the future of NSV. Look at what TVUNetworks has done with Windows Media (Yeah yeah I know - MICROSOFT!).
Like it or not, this can't be laughed off. Sure one can get hosting, but eventually the cost for the host will become too prohibitive for them to stay in business unless they have A LOT
of venture capital and put virtually all of their resources into becoming YET ANOTHER
place for people to offload their viral videos (Like we really NEED
another BlipTV? ONE
What's needed now are more places where can GO LIVE!!
Now it's true that LiveVideo and BlogTV have made some strides in this area, but even they have bandwidth limits. P2P streaming knows no such barrier
. It never has.
This is where NSV can come in.
In fact, WE WROTE THE BOOK ON THE SUBJECT
. Remember when the concept of RELAYING AUDIO
via SHOUTcast was introduced? All one needs to do is create a program that will relay NSV streams. Once that's released, then all that's needed is for people to get permission from the originating host to relay the show. If the program is built as if it was a seperate instance of Ken's NSVGUI, one should be able to control the bitrate in which the video is broadcast on their station for those who can't broadcast at like 500 Kbps.
Am I on to something here or am I talking about smething which technology has yet to address yet?
