The NewTeeVee blog recently examined the growing number of peer-to-peer (P2P) delivery platforms  available for online video, including several that offer streaming. We’ve touched on this topic previously , but the extraordinary growth of video traffic over the past year has generated interest in P2P as a delivery mechanism. A number of the services mentioned by NewTeeVee’s Janko Roettgers are focused on BitTorrent distribution, but others are serving as YouTube-style video portals for user-generated content.
The article notes that files on Amazon’s S3 service  can be accessed as a BitTorrent download. Users can upload videos to S3, and the service will generate torrent files.
