P2P Media Loader
Overview

P2P assisted media delivery

P2P Media Loader is an open-source JavaScript library that uses features of modern web browsers (i.e. HTML5 video and WebRTC) to deliver media over P2P and do playback via integrations with many popular HTML5 video players. It doesn’t require any web browser plugins or add-ons to function.

It allows creating Peer-to-Peer network (also called P2P CDN or P2PTV) for traffic sharing between users (peers) that are watching the same media stream live or VOD over HLS or MPEG-DASH protocols.

It significantly reduces traditional CDN traffic and cost while delivering media streams to more users.
