WiTV: Web-based Joost

CrossCast Systems will soon begin rolling out WiTV, a platform-agnostic, Web-based competitor to Joost; a system for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology. The new service will work under Mac OS X, Linux and Windows over the Web (likely through a Flash-based interface), and can also be run as a standalone player. The system will also purportedly be compatible with Apple TV. WebTV Wire reports "The nature of WiTV should allow it to automatically integrate with third party media devices including Windows Media Center, the Apple TV, Xbox 360, and mobile devices." Of course, the iPhone will likely be excluded from compatibility because it does not support Adobe Flash. A YouTube video shows the WiTV interface.
