SopPlus Streamer Manual



1. Introduction

A well-known main feature of SopPlus Streamer is anyone can broadcast his (her) own channel with it. SopPlus Streamer is developed for this intention. SopPlus Streamer is also called SO (Stream Originator). Once one starts a channel with SopPlus Streamer, he creates an original stream seed that starts to construct the whole p2p distribution network.


2. How Does It Work

The SopPlus Streamer is just a seed of a channel. It feeds a couple of viewers, these first level viewers share their data and feed other viewers. All the viewers construct a mesh network, each viewer has a couple of neighbors who established a direct connection with it and shares data with its neighbors.

3.3 Service Port

Service Port: SopPlus Streamer use this port to transfer data to other peers.

If you broadcast a channel in a private network, it is important to allow other users to access the port.

You can do port mapping on the router so that other users have better connectivity.
