Swamplayer is a software designed to stream video over a peer-to-peer bittorrent network. It is developed by the P2P Next, a consortium of public companies, research institutions and universities, from 12 European countries. The goal of the consortium is create a “Europe-wide “next-generation” internet television distribution system, based on P2P and social interaction”.
Swamplayer is the group’s first product, and they are looking for users to test the functionality of the software. Swamplayer is available for Windows and Linux, with a MacOS X version to follow. Download and usage instructions are available at the projects website.
