P2P-Radio provides a peer-to-peer audio and video broadcasting system.
P2P-Radio is a peer-to-peer audio (MP3) and video (NSV) broadcasting system that features freeloader detection, stream signing, SHOUTcast support, an easy-to-use GUI, and a separate monitor application which displays the current structure of the P2P network.
P2P-Radio is programmed in Java and runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and many other systems.
Here are some key features of "P2P Radio":
· Easy to use (graphical user interface)
· You can play the music/video with your media player (i.e. Winamp)
· A Shoutcast/Icecast Internet radio/TV station is used as audio/video source
· Freeloaders (peers that only listen but don't want to send the stream to other listeners) will be detected
· The data stream is signed, you can be sure that it arrives unchanged
· Very efficient communication (low overhead)
· The network structure can be viewed with a monitor
What's New in This Release:
· Signing of streams has been turned off by default in order to save CPU time (enable it with the parameter "-sign")
· P2P-Radio will only cooperate with a monitor if it was started with the parameter "-enablemonitor"
· Two parameters control whether the media player will be started:
· startmediaplayer: Start the media player in broadcasting mode
· dontstartmediaplayer: Don't start the media player in listening mode
