Peer to Peer Streaming

peer to peer
Peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming is a technology that enables the distribution of digital content, typically audio or video, directly between users or devices. Instead of relying on a central server to deliver the content to all viewers, P2P streaming leverages the collective bandwidth and resources of the viewers themselves.

In a traditional streaming model, a central server delivers content to each viewer individually. In P2P streaming, the content is distributed among multiple viewers who act as both consumers and distributors.

P2P streaming creates a decentralized network where each viewer, or peer, shares the content they have already received with other peers. This sharing of content happens in real-time during the streaming process.

P2P streaming enhances scalability because the more viewers there are, the more potential distribution points are available. As the audience grows, the network’s capacity to handle the streaming demand increases organically.

P2P streaming can be used for live events, allowing viewers to share the streaming load and enhance the overall experience for everyone.

Peer-to-peer streaming offers a decentralized and efficient approach to content distribution, particularly suitable for scenarios where scalability, reduced server load, and faster start times are crucial considerations.
