Normally when you are watching a video online, a server of that website or company is sending you the content but in a P2P streaming concept the video and content are stored on more than a server and who is the nearest will serve you (CDN). The reason we believe in decentralized P2P streaming is the transparency, flexibility, and privacy.
Basically, it’s useful when you would like to see what’s restricted to you by the government or the website itself. For example, you need want unlimited access to Netflix, the traditional ways are paying for the subscription (if available) or using VPN services. but the new way and idea of monvid is “proxy streaming“ which means a computer in the city without restriction is getting the video from Netflix and stream it for you with high speed and without any limitation.
