Squidcast Offers Personal P2P Videos

By Sergio Published on .

Squidcast will offer users the ability to transfer large files through P2P networks, hoping to capitalize on high-definition video sharing, NewTeeVee says. While conventional P2P services require both the sender and receiver to be online, Squidcast will take files, divide them into hundreds of multiple encrypted pieces and distribute them among many hosts within the Squidcast network. Users then can download files piece by piece from different hosts so long as they are also online. Janko Roettgers reviews the site, still in private testing, for NewTeeVee.
