Use BitTorrent to Distribute Your Video

Use BitTorrent to Distribute Your Video Using BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer network application, you can have other people distribute your movie for you.

Digital video files can be quite large. If you plan on distributing your movie online, you might wind up paying more than you expect, or you might even have your distribution stopped due to exceeding your bandwidth allocation.

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer (P2P) network application created by Bram Cohen. What sets BitTorrent apart from other P2P applications is the method it uses to distribute files. In most P2P applications, when you request to download a file, that file is obtained from only one machine. By downloading from one machine, you are limited to that machine’s connection to the Internet, whether it is fast or slow, reliable or not.
