Video Content to Put Strain on Infrastucture

Everybody seems to want to put something TV-like online, from Disney to magazines. Financial Times, however, warns that these live online video feeds will put strain on the Internet infrastructure and that the quality of the streaming video will be too low for the demanding audience. "Streaming video, which relies on delivering "bits" of data to viewers in real time, has exposed weaknesses in the fundamental design of the internet, which is based on being able to send data through a series of "hops" across the network between two distant computers."

Wonder how many will dare to put their stuff on BitTorrent. You lose control (as if anyone has control) but gain in quality and save on bandwidth bills.
