BitTorrent Live leaves private beta, meets the public

BitTorrent logoThere is a lot going on right now down in Austin, Texas. This week the city plays host to the popular SXSW Interactive show -- an idea that began as a music festival and then added technology to the mix. Today BitTorrent chose the location to remove the private tag from its Live streaming service and let the public play with it for the first time.

The service is a Peer-to-Peer live streaming platform that the company says is "for anyone with mobile video or webcams, for anyone in the moment, on the ground, or on the front lines; for everyone with the need to break news or break it down in real time".

BitTorrent Live

The BitTorrent Live service started testing in November of 2012 and has been utilized by at least one very popular podcaster I personally know. He told me he had no problems broadcasting a stream of his live show and encountered only minor hiccups during the testing phase.

The company notes that "we've demonstrated scaling and improved stability during our invite-only period, and are excited to open our service up to anyone who wants it. Thanks to all our early users for their support".

The service is still a beta, just of a public nature now, so perhaps you should temper your expectations here, and also have a backup plan just in case. If you want to give it a shot then head over to BitTorent Live to get started.
