Libreflix: A Peer-to-Peer On-demand Video Platform for Free Streaming
ResumoOn-demand video streaming platforms are becoming one of the most important means to publish and consume multimedia content on the internet. The platforms are usually owned by corporations that charge for content access and implement restrictive copyright policies. While the platforms are beneficial, in many aspects, to the multimedia industry and consumers, they can be too restrictive for independent content creators and users with limited resources. This paper presents Libreflix, an on-demand video platform for free publication and consumption of content. Libreflix is intended for aggregation of content with permissive licences, fostering collaboration, community engagement and democratization of knowledge in the internet. This paper describes Libreflix’s architecture, the main functionalities implemented in the platform, and discusses important aspects and lessons learned during its ongoing development.
