  1. “Remember this day. In five years tons of people will be distributing their content this way.”
    Yes, I agree with you. One year ago this time, millions of people in the world like me were not aware about the potential of blogging industry but now you are the best example of the huge potential of this industry.

  3. Bit torrent it the way to go. Or should I say Torrent. I use Utorrect, and when Dave Winer posted about Dvorak’s torret, I grabbed form his site. I think about 100 Feeds and it took 2 minutes to get the 20meg file.

    How can you complain about that speed. I also the Vista beta in no time at all. I think Microsoft is now trying to remove it from Torrents.

  5. I have to agree with the second comment made above. I think a lot of people will be turned off by the extra effort involved with this kind of distribution. Sure, they’ll do it for the latest episode of “24″ or whatever, but not for some random videoblog.

  7. “The Torrent kiddies aren’t distro’ing 8.5 gig HD ISOs, rather 400 meg rmvb’s and 750 meg divx and xvid’s. ”

    I agree. Hollywood should embrace that, rather than oppose it. I wonder why they don’t start pushing the non-DRM low bitrate versions of their latest movies, because doing so those bits are promotions to go and buy the HD version, and that’s a new revenue segment for them, not one that undermines another.

  9. and that’s the reason why HD video is the solution for Hollywood.

    Well, a nice side effect yes, but Hollywood and HD has more to do with the quality of the video look, over large files sizes. But in all actuality the HD phenom HELPS the pirates, as good compressional codec’s end up looking pretty darned crystal clear thanks to HD. The Torrent kiddies aren’t distro’ing 8.5 gig HD ISOs, rather 400 meg rmvb’s and 750 meg divx and xvid’s. But then it’s a geek thing, as have to mess with codec’s and get DVD players that run odd codec’s or S-Video their computers in, the masses don’t do that. The high price of DL media and the forever rendering time and flaky (and slow) nature of torrent downloads is more the deterrent.

    But torrents have saved the net, for legit purposes too…no way in heck could I afford the bandwith burns if not for Bittorrent. Bram is god.

  11. Shame your ex-employer couldn’t see the sense in using it to distribute the latest Vista beta …

  13. I don’t think five years from now people will be distributing multiple gigs of HD content over the wire. What I see however, is a lot of publishers taking advantage of video editing software to push video chapters, rather than full movies (or let users pull any chapter of interest).

    I think big files are a natural deterrent to file sharing, even with BitTorrent and broadband, and that’s the reason why HD video is the solution for Hollywood.

  15. I beg to differ…

    But then I get my toothpaste at a store and not from a website, silly silly me. I am so backwards.

    Media and content is passive, making distribution heavy-effort active will but cancel out most. No matter how easy, if still some extra lifting, people will take the path of least resistance. Human nature.
