If NCO Day uses bittorrent, which the server admin declined according a a post in another thread, he would have to use his own bandwidth or have other people distribute it. Since he is in college, they probably won't be happy to have him using P2P on campus, and would limit his bandwidth. So until there are a lot of seeders, everything will be very slow.

Then there is the issue of finding a tracker. We will need to use one to post/control the torrent files.


After a tracker has been found, if NCO day wants the BT route, we will need to find people who are avaliable to seed the files for everyone else. So instead of saying "Use BT," say something like "I'm on cable and I can seed some files for you." Maybe those who are offering to seed can be given access to the files on the website or somewhere else so it can be seeded. Then after the file is well seeded, it is possible that BT can be used both fast and reliably, although we will always want people to seed as long as possible. But all of this is up to NCO day, since he controls the videos.


BTW, I can offer about 10-20kb/s of upload speed... I'd cut this back after uploading about 4-5 gigs though...

Send a message via Yahoo to ncoday
I never said I was going to use BT and the more I read about it, the more I don't like it.

I definitely think I am leaning towards an individual quota system with preference on larger quota given to those who donate.

Company doesn't prohibit it. So, what's it? They only restrict the access to the ftp, but even this could be easily bypassed.

IF they wanna fire me, then they always find some kind of reason, no matter what. And if it would be only 'You didn't clean your dish.' That's in US. IF they wanna try it here in Europe, I think they bang against a brick wall with this intention.

ThanX for your care but it's useless in this point.

Uhu, I see, so probably it's the issue to cater files around so people download 1000 hour movies for watching within one week. And about this *legal liability* I can only add, that's some US-issue. Aren't the most files freely available? I haven't seen any kind of *commercial* stuff on the FTP-site which might violate copyright laws. Perhaps there are - but I don't see them in first hand.

So, what kind of *legal* 'liability' would there be? You can sue him, because the Bandwith is exceeded although you've donated 5 bugs? Sue him for 1.000.000 $ that your healthy situation decreased because you couldn't get XXXX.mov?

Sorry, I don't get it. And if there are some really keen for BT, then why not open them by thereself? I personally would really like a FTP-access, and pay - Why not? Everything in this world costs something. So, why not downloading?

In any case, Usenet is, in the long run, really the best way to distribute the files. Its advantages far outweigh the negatives. It won't rely on any one person to post all the files. It won't rely on a single host to store all the files. The distribution network will be much wider than cliesource, so many more people will contribute their files. Even if ncoday decides to host his files on a server, it would be worthwhile to initiate a alt.binaries.palm.multimedia newsgroup.

Take a look at Dijjer

Check out <a href="http://dijjer.org/">Dijjer</a>, its open source, works through firewalls, and, unlike BitTorrent, can play-back videos as they are being downloaded (see some examples on their website).

Geeesh you guys, i posted a thread about this months ago...

use Grouper, it's made for the exact thing your all mentioning. They specialize in sharing very large video files.

It's a private p2p app, very easy to use. There are no storage concerns, legal concerns etc...It's free, no spyware, etc.. you create a private group and invite only those members you want to join. There is no uploading files, you choose which files from your computer you want to share and they are available for the members you've invited to your group. everyone in the group can share amoung each other (unlike an ftp where one person pushes their files to everyone).

www.grouper.com

here's a link to request to join a new group I just set up for sharing videos:
http://directory.grouper.com/g.aspx?g=124104

-you can click on this link before you've installed grouper or after (it doesn't matter).

I've tried bit torrent, ftp sites, etc... this is really the easiest way to share large files in my opinion. there is no uploading, and it's pretty straight forward.

might i suggest:

http://www.foreverhost.us

Supposedly unlimited space and bandwidth, the owner is available readily using AIM, MSN, or email, and is very personable.

Haven't tried it myself but at $40 (US) for a lifetime account and $10 for a year, it can't hurt to try it can it? By month is $4 if i remember correctly, but you can check the website.

Let us know the new address so we can get in on the movie action!

i just recommened a FREE site that is made to transfer videos... it's a FREE p2p file sharing company. www.grouper.com

there are no bandwidth/size limits as you are transferring between each other's computers and can browse all available files that each user chooses to share.

This company was made to transfer videos, photos, music between friends in a private p2p atmosphere. The entire company was built around exactly what your needs are!!
