Hello Christopher,

I have forwarded your message to Movim.

Thank you for the information.

I look forward to it!
eD2k URIs would be good also for individual files.

BitTorrent Live (may be useful for special occasions)
It is reminiscing to me another correspondence I read at
concerning to something that is called "BitTorrent Live" which is
another manner of streaming media instead of using one or a few
exclusive sources (servers), the broadcasting source is getting
assistance in bandwidth from other listeners (peers).

You may find it of use (I guess you are aware of it already).

In the following video, Bram suggests 99.9% load on the sharers (not the
original source) [Time: 1:30].
Title: BitTorrent's founder on creating a peer-to-peer live video
distribution model (by YammerInc).

Notes & Resources (screen recording of bittorrent live)


* There was another video (BitTorrent Live - Bram Cohen) hosted at this
 address [removed] - it had
 not much, only 3 screens displaying a ticking clock of 5 seconds
 delay with a few sentences by Bram.

I think it surely was useful. Herein something that fundamentally may
be radically far from this discussion. Interesting, nonetheless.

Dot P2P (off-topic)
In respond to a censorship of a certain website an idea called P2P DNS
gain popularity.

Some chatters at irc:// suggested another p2p
protocol which they defined as dhttp:// which is a hybrid of DHT [0]
peer detection technique and HTML files that are usually conveyed to us
through the HTTP protocol. Another suggestion which was wrapped with
dhttp:// at the same time was ed2ktp:// which is eD2k + HTTP (basically
sharing an HTML or MHT or MAF files with eMule with an HTML rendering

It is currently being focused on .p2p, somewhat like .onion of Tor.
