This mobile application allows users to enjoy watching unbroken videos, it is free of charge and it is already available for downloads. Tuluntulu technology is making waves and is it said to be a pioneer in low-bandwidth video streaming, please see the following website for details: http://www.techcentral.co.za/tuluntulu-drives-low-bandwidth-video/48616/
The technology was developed by Keith Ferguson and Pierre van der Hoven together with a consortium of researchers and engineers from CSIR, the University of Cape Town and Internet service provider East Coast Access. Tuluntulu’s intellectual property has been protected in six countries. At present, the Tuluntulu platform has 10 channels and it employs “adaptive real-time Internet streaming technology” (Artist), which allows the users to enjoy watching unbroken videos. It further utilizes a variable bitrate technology, which depending on the users connection speed could be adjusted on the app to reduce the picture quality and at the same time reducing Internet bandwidth charges. Videos could be streamed efficiently even at rates as low as 50kbi/s. For more information, please visit http://www.tuluntulu.com/ .
