CMU ESM Project
writes "Our research group at Carnegie Mellon University has developed a peer to
peer streaming video content distribution system called End System
The system constructs a self-organizing and adaptive overlay network
the receivers that are tuning into the broadcast events. The system has
used fairly successfully for
quite a few events. Now we want test the system with a lot of more users
and different user join patterns. We are streaming some very cool
video, such as Triumph of the Nerds by Bob Cringely, distinguished
lecture by Eric Schmidt,
CEO of Google, ACM SIGCOMM conference paper presentation by Dave Clark,
and 2002 Sony Legged Robot Soccer Championship.
Here is the detailed
schedule. So please tune in, enjoy, and help test our system!"
The streaming is based on QuickTime; for Linux users, the project page steps through installation of CodeWeaver's CrossOver plug-in.
