I just wonder..
I read lately I can download files from multiple users.
Would it be possible, to 'broadcast' my file to multiple users?
This way, network balast is way less.
For instance, I had a nice hollyday on the beach with some friends. I recorded on video, made a compilation of it, and put it on the net.
In stead of all my friends downloading the moviefile separated, couldn't (if 2 friends are online at the same time) they download it together, causing me only to upload the file once? (or maybe an increase of 30% upload due to network data corrections&stuff...)
(It might be that uploading to multiple users will be slower, but it at least uses less down/upload volume).
It would also be possible then, to pick up fragments of a file I'd for instance would like to download, that is being uploaded to another user. If then, my bandwith is fast enough, I could save some time.
What about this idea? Has it allready been integrated in Kazaa?
