We have been running this test and demo site for a while and got some feedback. Most important negative feedback is that it requires the user to download and install an App before videos can be viewed. It also requires that all videos are uploaded to the site which will make storage capacity a problem eventually.
The image above and the text below show what we would like to achieve to replace the current mode of operation. The site is now using a p2p type of distribution based on Libswift but the development of WebRTC and the open source WebTorrent have made it possible to achieve the necessary characteristics by converting to WebTorrent.
We therefore need someone who would be able to help us set up a working p2p distribution system based on WebTorrent very soon and preferably right now.
The major tasks would be (more detailed specification is available under NDA):
- Set up a tracker in the same Linux server as the portal (a new version of the portal in Drupal is available).
- Create packages for creating and seeding torrents to browsers to be downloadable to Mac, Linux, and Windows computers and servers. (Examples using Libswift are available.)
- Minor modifications of a proprietary Drupal module (PHP) (It's well commented and such modifications are already done in other modules which can be examples.)
- Test in co-operation with us.
We think this will require skills in setting up software in Linux environment but not much software development skills are required.
When the job is done we are ready to pay a reasonable remuneration.
If it all works and we are successful in marketing the distribution service there will most likely be possible to do more for the interested person and we are open to a deeper collaboration to develop the system further.
