Joost was seen as "the next big thing" when it opened up it's P2P television venture a good while back. And yes, it was a bit exciting, and a bit like no one had done before (although there was, and are, quite a number of competitors with the same idea atm, like Babelgum, Vuze, Veoh…Read more Joost on iPhone, iTouch
New kid on the block, Miro, is trying to challenge Joost, Babelgum and the rest of the bunch with its slightly different take on things. See. Miro is first of all an Open Source internet television app, formerly known by the much-less-savvy name "Democracy Player" (I mean, that's NOT a selling name, Miro ftw!). It…Read more Miro challenging Joost, Babelgum et al
It's always nice, and a bit annoying, when someone else articulates your own feelings in words in a much better way than you yourself have been able to do. So, it's with a mixture of both that I just read William Coopers article on the new developments over at Joost on his Informitv-pages - read…Read more Hear, hear! The latest word on Joost.
Just started testing Babelgum as well (you all know, that Joost-competitor). Must say that at the moment my bucks are on Joost in that particular battle, as I find the usability of Babelgum a bit less intuitive and straight-forward. Might just be me, but I'm finding it hard to easily get to what I want…Read more Babelgum, Joost, Vuze, Microsoft Surface…there are so many of them!
Joost teams up with Ministry of Sound! As an old techno-head, I can't but say "Well done!". Testing Joost just became even nicer.. 🙂
The more I test (or watch, rather) Joost, the more I would like it to be:- HD quality- loadsa more content- equipped with a much more advance GUI and possiblities to program / record / whatever- have a lot of funky widgets (the kind that you use twice a year but are really essential to…Read more Joost the next generation
Hi ho Silver! Funny thing, that. As soon as someone comes up with something, someone else does as well. Just have a look at Babelgum, a service now in Betatesting (just like Joost), that is set to "blend the lean-back experience of traditional TV with the interactive and social power of the Internet" (just like…Read more Babelgum, the new Joost (even though there IS no Joost on the market yet 🙂
Just a quick note - hats off to the guys at Joost. Not so much because it would be the best running thing with streaming media over the internet or anything like that (because it's not, even though it IS quite nifty and nice).Nah, hats off because they manage to do it all over again.…Read more Joost again…
Started beta-testing Joost today. First impressions:- a lot like what I would expect from a well founded IPTV venture- slightly dodgy on the picture quality, most probably something that will improve. Still way better than other competitors out there.- EPG needs some working on, suggestions, reviews, ratings etc should help the viewer more- good feel…Read more Betatesting Joost
Well, Joost is looking good. The project formerly known as The Venice Project (as written about on this blog in mid-December) is generating quite a stir on the IPTV-market. See, Joost is a Very Good Thing [tm] for PC owners (and Macs as well). It uses the P2P-principles of Bittorrent, for example, to give IPTV…Read more Joost – why not?
