is a free online TV application based on advanced p2p technology.
There is no central server, each user can be a client, server
or broadcaster of streams. So it’s considered as a robust
network. PeerCast.org was established in April 2002 as a non-profit
site providing free P2P radio software. The aim of the project
is to create an easy to use, simple and reliable software
client that enables anyone to broadcast streaming media on
the Internet without the need for expensive servers or bandwidth.
