Interactive Video

The IPTV generation

Tonight I finally played with Joost and streaming video. I played with the interface before only at that time the network I used blocked video.

I heard some things about bad video quality, I think the quality isn’t that bad at all. It’s a bit above web average. The response time is hard to get used to. Because Joost looks and feels like software it is hard to accept the few seconds the connection takes before a new video loads.
