Ace Stream

Ace Stream is a peer-to-peer multimedia streaming protocol, built using BitTorrent technology.[1] Ace Stream has been recognized by sources as a potential method for broadcasting and viewing bootlegged live video streams.[2][3] The protocol functions as both a client and a server. When users stream a video feed using Ace Stream, they are simultaneously downloading from peers and uploading the same video to other peers.


Ace Stream began under the name TorrentStream as a pilot project to use BitTorrent technology to stream live video. In 2013 TorrentStream, was re-released under the name ACE Stream.[4]
