BitTorrent Live Beta Test

Recommended Posts

Our µTorrent Labs' "Project Pheon", a peer-to-peer live streaming protocol, has now graduated to open beta. We'd like to invite our µTorrent users to help beta test this exciting new project. To get started, just go to:

http://live.bittorrent.com/

And fill out the email signup form to be informed of Live beta tests (currently on Fridays at 8pm PST). If you'd like to test the protocol immediately, just follow the install instructions and you'll be able to view a jukebox of past Live DJ sets.

If you have problems, click the "Problems" link or "Contact Us". We're currently working on improving Linux support, so feel free to upvote a suggestion for it at the link below and be patient for now.

If you have suggestions or feature ideas, please submit them here:

We're trying to test the protocol with larger swarm sizes, so if you'd like to contribute to that effort, please view the stream and then leave the page open for as long as you're able to — it's peer to peer, so this is somewhat analogous to seeding, and helps us assess how well it scales. Thanks in advance.

Cool. Perhaps make the twit broadcast the default. :)

Might want to update JW Player to version 5.9 too. :P

I'm having issues with this. BTLive loads and runs, but when I hit the "Play" button on the flash player in a web browser it just quits (disappears from the tray) without any kind of message or notification, and the player reports "You need to install BTLive" (Which I have done, obviously).

Any idea where I can find a logfile or something similar?

Windows 8 Consumer Preview x64, FireFox 15.0a1 Nightly, Adobe Flash 11.2.202.235.
