UDP IPTV to RTSP proxy is a lightweight GNU/Linux daemon which, being installed on a LAN router, provides on-demand access to UDP multicast streams via RTSP, RTP, and HTTP unicast protocols. The server itself does not support streaming of any files, it only can receive incoming multicast streams provided by your ISP and retransmit them to interested local clients. The main purpose of the software is to provide simple IPTV service to small office or home ethernet and/or Wi-Fi LANs where upgrading the network to handle multicast correctly is not an option. It is not intended to handle large-scale installations and service clients you don't trust (like the public Internet).
The p2pd package can be used to build scalable content distribution networks (CDNs) for interactive video-on-demand (VoD) streaming. It can be used as a server, a cache, and a client, and used to construct both traditional CDNs and P2P-based CDNs that make use of client resources to stream video files. The system is network aware, attempts to make efficient use of the available resources, and adapts to server failures.
