"In order to efficiently stream audio and video, we had to figure out a technical routing system to pipe multiple video and audio streams in and out of each city/venue participating in the event. The anycast/anystream software was written as an attempt to help circumvent some of the hardships of dealing with the bandwidth, cpu, and logicstical limitations of a setup like ours.
Essentially, the anystream client allows one to listen to multiple (8) stereo ogg vorbis audio streams and pipe them out of a multichannel (16 channel hopefully) audio interface. Anystream allows one to take the master stereo mix of one venue, and stream it to the others. (...)
I should note that anycast/anystream are heavily influenced by nSlam, written by SAT. nSlam approaches a similar situation in a slightly different manner (encoding 8 channels out, and decoding 8 channels in), and coulnt quite have been used as efficiently as the anycast/anystream solution. Both nSlam and anycast/anystream use the pdogg~ object written for PD."
