Hi :)

I got an invite to Joost (Thanks to you know who!) :)

Just went to install it.. and for once read the terms and conditions.. (who ever does usually?) :)

In it, these paragraphs..

2. Permission from You for Joost™ Software to Deliver Advertising and Use Your Computer and Bandwidth to Provide Content to You and other users of Joost™ Software and to Manage the Network of Computers Running Joost™ Software

2.1.2. The Joost™ Software will utilize the processor, bandwidth and hard drive (or other memory or storage hardware) and/or cache of your computer (or other applicable device) for the limited purpose of facilitating the communication between, and the transmittal of data, content, programming, services or features to, you and other Joost™ Software users, and to facilitate the operation of the network of computers running instances of the Joost™ Software.
 


4.2.3. When installed on your computer, the Joost™ Software may periodically communicate with Joost servers and/or Joost™ Software installed by other users.  Additionally, third party software installed on Your computer may periodically communicate with third party servers for the purposes described in the license agreement or privacy policy between you and that third party.

So the software seems to be similar to peer-to-peer.. how much of my bandwidth will it actually use?

Cheers,
ZollyMonsta

Hmmmm. Have you been under a rock lately? Joost uses peer-to-peer technology, and was created by the same folks who created Kazaa and Skype.

Also, I've posted in my blog about how much bandwidth Joost uses. It's in their FAQ as well.

Yes, I like living under rocks occasionally :)  It's nice and warm and protects me from the rain. :D

Ah... Interesting.  I may take a look, but seeing as I upload constantly for shoutcast it would probably be detrimental to my shoutcast streams.  Still, won't hurt to go and take a look I guess... Can always un-install it. :)

Cheers,
