Broadcast



Du you have any ideas on how to support bus/broadcast networks in Styx, a la 
IP multicast?

I think this will be a big idea in shared bandwith environments - which will 
be a big idea. Why watch the new Star Wars sequel alone if every other 
person in the neighbourhood would like to join you? And the rest could watch 
an old episode and still you would consume only two videostream's worth of 
bandwith. A bandwith equal to 10 video streams would probably serve a user 
base of thousand people fairly well if they can dynamically manage grouping 
themselves with IP multicast.
