GoalBit First Open Source P2P TV
« on: February 21, 2009, 09:50:51 PM »

GoalBit is a peer to peer distribution system, capable of distributing high-bandwidth live-content to all network peers preserving its quality. This project follows the multi-source approach where the stream is decomposed into several flows sent by different peers to each client. In order to meassure the peers perceived quality, it is used the recently proposed PSQA (Pseudo-Subjective Quality Assessment) technology.
Basic Features

    * GoalBit is a software project, which produces free software for video streaming, released under the GNU General Public License.
    * BitTorrent streaming (based on the BitTorrent protocol).
    * Various audio and video formats supported (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, WMV, mp3, ogg, wma).
    * GoalBit runs on GNU/Linux, Solaris, and Microsoft Windows.
    * Full video delivery network monitoring suite included (the perceived quality at the client side is meassured in real time and automatically)

What's new in Goalbit 0.6?

Kademlia Support (Trackerless and Channel Storage)
Kad is now part of GoalBit platform! so we don't have to worry about the tracker anymore!

Now you can broadcast your own contents in an easier way:

Note: In order to use the Kad feature, the UDP port 3001 should be open (if your router doesn't support UPnP, you have to do it manually)

We change our base software

We migrate from VLC 0.9.4 to VLC 1.0.1, by this way we have a more stable and complete version of GoalBit!

H-264 encoding support in Windows

Output Adaptation
Now you can record, stream and/or transcode any GoalBit Streaming!


Thanks to Renzo, now Goalbit is also translated to Italian.
