Submission + - Does P2P Streaming Media Have a Future? (blogspot.com)

shadowmage13 writes: "After reading that streaming will overtake downloads, at least in music, my interest in P2P internet radio/TV has been rekindled. Years ago, there were a couple of projects showing promise, but today IceShare, PeerCast, and FreeCast have all been inactive for a long time. There are obviously technical limitations that make P2P media streaming difficult, but proprietary options exist, and I just don't see the technology taking off without an open source solution. I always thought this had a lot of potential. What happened to these projects, are there others, and does this have a future?"
