CNN has been working with the Denmark-based company Octoshape for a few months now. Users have to install the Octoshape plugin for their web-browser, and this makes the regular Flash player through which they view the stream, P2P compliant. This means that users who download the video partially to their computers also share it with others. Thus far, CNN has not commented in public on their use of Octoshape's P2P plugin. However, from an insider who's familiar with the technology, TorrentFreak learned that approximately 30% of the bandwidth for CNN's live stream comes from peers. This obviously results in a significant reduction in bandwidth costs for the broadcaster. The rest of the bandwidth still comes from central servers to ensure that there is enough available for everyone.
