Y'all remember DirectConnect? Kazaa? WASTE? Restroshare? You know, software where you could offer your entire media collection for share and people could browse and download as they liked?

What's the modern version of that, which

a) works, stably; and
b) is cross-platform at least to Linux and Windows?

@deutrino the last time, i used RetroShare... but more on a messenger perspective. Maybe someone could develop a plugin for cloud platforms like owncloud, nextcloud... i dunno.

@santiago It just seems so crazy that this problem hasn't been semi-definitively solved yet. The software that does it best in any given era eventually rots away and isn't carried on.

@santiago @deutrino there is already XMPP functionality for NextCloud .


#NextCloud  (as long as #XMPP ) , AFAIK i'ts not #P2P, but it supports federating instances ...
