PeerCast is a free software peer-to-peer conceived to allow any user connected to Internet to diffuse its clean radio or Vidéo on line. It is based indeed on the protocol Gnutella to create a network “of transmitters” and listeners. It makes it possible to diffuse in streaming the following formats: MP3, Ogg, WMA, WMV, NSV and GMO.
Its nature peer-to-peer makes it possible Peercast to solve one of the main issues to which are confronted the diffusers of free radio and television on the Internet: the requirements in band-width - and consequently needs financial - are generally proportional to the number of listeners. In the case of Peercast, they are the users of the flow which plays the part of relay automatically when the transmitter of origin does not lay out any more sufficient band-width.
Thus, a standard subscription with the Internet is enough to very emit a flow of good quality bound for an unspecified number of users.
The API one on the level waiter is compatible icecast2, so that a flow designed to be diffused by icecast2 can generally be diffused directly by peercast without modification. The source code is available: http://www.peercast.org/code under license LPG.
