DistribuStream project is a fully open peercasting system that allows on-demand or live streaming media to be delivered at a fraction of the normal cost.

DistribuStream is an implementation of the Peer Distributed Transfer Protocol (PDTP), a peer-to-peer transfer protocol which utilizes segmented downloading and provides for progressive downloads. Files are received in order and can be consumed for purposes like media playback even as the file is transferring.

By using a P2P approach, DistribuStream is able to dramatically reduce the cost of streaming media by partially offloading the required bandwidth onto clients transferring files. This makes it similar to protocols like BitTorrent, while still supporting streaming content delivery.

What can DistribuStream be used for?

DistribuStream enables anyone to set up a low cost on-demand streaming media server. Operation is similar to a web server: just drop the files you wish to serve into a directory and they're immediately available for peer-to-peer delivery.

What's New in This Release:

This release adds support for daemonization. This allows the dstream executable to be run in the background automatically. You can now elect to run dstream in the foreground by adding the -f command line option or by setting daemonize: false in the config file.
This release also brings major improvements to the traffic routing algorithm. A new scoring method is used to determine which peer should be used for a given download, incorporating the trust model, bandwidth modeling, and prefix information.
It also includes improvements in the data structures used for the traffic routing algorithm, improving the overall performance of the system.
