Pcast is a free online TV application based on
advanced p2p technology. There is no central server,
each user can be a client, server or broadcaster
of streams. So it’s considered as a robust network.
PeerCast.org was established in April 2002 as
a non-profit site providing free P2P radio software.
The aim of the project is to create an easy to
use, simple and reliable software client that
enables anyone to broadcast streaming media on
the Internet without the need for expensive servers
