Online Video Using BitTorrent and HTML5 Applied to Wikipedia
—Wikipedia started a project in order to enable users to add video and audio on their Wiki pages. The technical downside of this is that its bandwidth requirements will increase manifold. BitTorrent-based peer-to-peer technology from P2PNext (a European research project) is explored to handle this bandwidth surge. We discuss the impact on the BitTorrent piece picker and outline our ”tribe” protocol for seamless integration of P2P into the HTML5 video and audio elements. Ongoing work on libswift which uses UDP, an enhanced transport protocol and integrated NAT/Firewall puncturing, is also described.
