Internet TV

While we are not painting, coloring Easter eggs or not doing any homeworks, we can read some news about internet television.

Joost - Internet TV

Joost is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds. It allows searching for programmes and channels, for example, as well as social features like chat. There are many more new features to come in future Joost releases.

The program is based on P2PTV technology and is expected to deliver near-TV resolution images. It turns a PC into an instant on-demand TV without any need for additional set top box. News updates, discussion forums, show ratings, and multi-user chat sessions (often linked to the active stream/channel) are made possible through the use of semi-transparent widget overlays.

Joost is a new Skype co-owners project. Currently, the software is in beta-testing stage. A beta invite is required to join the Joost community.

* Joost - tai P2P protokolą naudojanti platforma TV žiūrėjimui. Naudojanti Mozilla’os XULRunner varikliuką, programa gali veikti daugumoje operacinių sistemų. Joost yra nemokama, o pajamas gauna iš reklamų.
