BitTorrent Creator Introduces Live Streaming Protocol That May Challenge Youtube


Bram Cohen, the inventor of the BitTorrent protocol, has demonstrated a new P2P-live streaming protocol, which is claimed to be superior to all other streaming solutions on the market today.

Cohen demonstrated the P2P-live streaming protocol to TorrentFreak and it is expected to be finalized in a few months.

Released 10 years ago, BitTorrent was the first widely adopted technology that made it possible to download large videos online in a timely fashion. Now Cohen is finalizing a new protocol, this time aimed at P2P-live streaming. He claims that his implementation will set itself apart from competitors with both its efficiency and extremely low latency.

"The main areas of innovation relate to techniques he is using to manage latency at an unprecedented low while controlling network congestion," BitTorrent's VP of Product Management Simon Morris told TorrentFreak.

"As outlined in the academic literature on live P2P content delivery, the management of live p2p streaming on the open internet requires split second reconfigurations to reroute content delivery in the fewest possible round trips between peers in the event of network hiccups."

The demo reveals just a few seconds of latency. During the demo, Cohen reveals that the streaming protocol probably won't be finished until the summer:
