Finally, high-quality streaming for the rest of us. Using Apple’s revolutionary Rendezvous technology, you can make your movies available on the network for everyone to watch together, or even password protect them for private showings. Broadcast family movies, student films, or class lectures without ever having to worry about multicast addresses, SLP announces, or port numbers: Tryst puts all the power of streaming at the touch of a button.
Tryst handles the complexities of streaming in the background while offering you a wide array of practical choices. Tryst Options Set time delays to give peers the opportunity to discover your movie and “subscribe” to see it. Limit the amount of connections you allow for more intimate screenings or to simply reduce stress on slower networks. Password protect your broadcasts to screen whom sees your movie and whom doesn’t.
Tryst was developed by Francisco Tolmasky, currently a sophomore at the University of Southern California, using Apple’s XCode IDE. Tryst uses the Cocoa frameworks, utilizing Rendezvous to handle the “broadcasting”. The actual streaming is handled by the VLC back end.
Tryst is free application for OS X.
