Test №2 Broadcasting over the BitTorrent protocol, based on Torrent Stream software

    Yesterday we released the alpha version of Torrent Stream 1.0.6 (for Windows) and launched the first test broadcast in Full HD (1080p) format, with a bitrate of up to 9 Mb / s.


    It was clearly too much, so many users simply could not, because of the high requirements to participate in testing the new Live Stream function, or simply run into problems when you play

    Considering what a sensation on the Internet and in particular on Habré ( habrahabr.ru/post/138216 ) made a test launch of an on-air broadcast of Bram Cohen, through his new creation BTLivewhere a test with a bitrate of 512kbit / s was launched (almost 20 times lower than the broadcast included by us), we made conclusions and included a new test broadcast with a lower bitrate (up to 3 Mbit / s) so that the maximum number of people could Take part in the test and test the technology normally.

    We could not stand it and again turned on the broadcast with a higher bitrate (up to 7 Mb / s) !!!

    In general, let's try to spin 720p, and if there are few active testers who pull this speed, then we will return again to broadcast from 3 Mbit / s
