File Extension TSTREAM


File extension: TSTREAM
File type: Video Stream Control File

Notes about the TSTREAM file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The TSTREAM file type is primarily associated with 'SwarmPlayer' by p2p-next Consortium.

SwarmPlayer is a live streaming extension to BitTorrent that uses the following generic setup...

There exists an injector, a unique peer that provides the swarm with the latest generated video, and is therefore always on-line. The video is obtained from a live source, such as a DV camera. When started, the injector generates a TSTREAM file, which is similar to a torrent file but cannot be used by BitTorrent clients lacking the SwarmPlayer live streaming extension. An end user (peer) which is interested in watching the video stream obtains the TSTREAM file and joins the swarm as per the BitTorrent protocol. SwarmPlayer regards the video stream to be infinite in length, which is useful when streaming a TV channel or a webcam feed.
