Joost vs Miro

Joost, que es una iniciativa de los fundadores de Skype, apuesta por abarcar la larga cola, desde los grandes estudios hasta los pequeños creadores, pero con un control estricto de lo que distribuye, sin permitir a los usuarios crear sus propios canales. Su finalidad es emitir videos de alta calidad a través de la web y ya ha conseguido el apoyo de grandes medios como la MTV o la National Geographic. Entre sus limitaciones cabe destacar que mantiene el perfil de televidente pasivo (nada de compartir contenido propio) y la escasa viralidad del servicio (nada de correos del tipo "mira este vídeo").

A Joost le están apareciendo cada día más competidores. Algunos, como Miro, vienen a llenar los espacios que Joost no cubre, o a hacer las cosas de la manera que Joost debería haberlas hecho.

Miro, al igual que Joost, es un programa para ver televisión y video por Internet. En Miro, a diferencia de Joost, cualquiera puede agregar contenido al servicio, tiene más de 2.500 canales (incluye 200 canales de contenido comercial, además de la posibilidad de agregar RSS feeds), no contiene DRM y es código abierto. Por otra parte, mientras que en Joost ves contenido en forma de streaming, Miro usa el protocolo abierto BitTorrent para descargarlo a tu disco duro. Adicionalmente puede mostrar y descargar contenido de YouTube otros servicios de video.

Compartiendo ordenadores
