Download + Play

Download + Play is one of the three methods of distributing video content:

  • DownloadPlay, first download something, then play it. Standard BitTorrent + player
  • LiveStreaming, p2p videodistribution where everybody in the swarm is viewing the same content at the same time. Comparable to television channels.
  • VideoOnDemand, comparable to an online movie rental. User decides what to watch and when to watch.

Download + play is trivial to implement.
