Somewhat similar to the BitTorrent technology, there is a new concept that gives users something more than file sharing: live streams distributed over the Internet. An application tailored especially for this purpose is Stream Torrent.
The main advantage of such an application is that it doesn’t need a server to transfer data because computers are directly connected so it all depends on the speed of the two Internet connections. It simply plays the streaming torrents after you add the desired address to the list.
Installing Stream Torrent is really piece of cake because the setup kit follows the same principle as the rest of the application: simplicity. The interface is clean and user friendly, which means the application can be used by both beginners and more experienced users alike.
Just hit the Search button, write down a keyword to look for available stream and double click the one you like. If you intend to use Stream Torrent just for viewing and not also for streaming, it all comes down to this.
The application also enables you to easily add stream addresses or import entire lists in XML format. Of course you can also export the channels in your list for quick access. Another handy function of this utility is its ability to help you publish your own live stream.
All things considered, Stream Torrent is probably the easiest way to take advantage of BitTorrent technology when it comes to live streaming. You just need to find the channels you're interested in and add them to the queue.
