  IANA assigned 4188 TCP / UDP port as TVA P2P protocol official port

In September 2008, IANA assigned 4188 TCP / UDP port as the official port of TVA P2P protocol. Please see: http: //www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers.

  TVA support Silverlight, began to achieve cross-platform playback

In November 2008, P2P technology provider TVA began to fully support Microsoft's latest Silverlight technology, the use of Silverlight player to achieve P2P streaming live and on-demand, and through Silverlight cross-platform features to achieve the P2P platform on the P2P Streaming media applications.

  TVA supports Flash RTMP streaming media protocol, provides the most complete P2P streaming media solution

In addition to save a lot of bandwidth costs, the providers do not need to buy a lot of Adobe's streaming media server license.

  Mashup mode Flash streaming media infrastructure

November 2009, TVA introduced a new structure of the streaming media - MeshStreaming system, the system flexibly "mix and match" the C/S and P2P streaming media structure into one, users can use standard Flash player to direct access streaming media content, and also can switch to the P2P terminal to access the corresponding content in the P2P network. In this case, streaming media operators do not have to redeploy the back-end system, MeshStreaming system can be deployed at the same time while supporting C/S and P2P two kinds of network structure.

The secret of the system design approach to the "mashup" is that the MeshStreaming system itself can take two roles at the same time. One is as a standard streaming media server; the other is as P2P streaming media server. The benefits of this system are obvious, for streaming media providers, they can be flexible to consider how to expand the entire system. You can directly use the CDN way to back-end streaming media server expansion, you can also open the P2P network, so that user nodes join the entire network to enhance the overall system capacity, of course, these two means can be carried out at the same time.
