XNA Streaming – Part 1

Introduction

As I mentioned in my previous post, at this year's Microsoft Community Bootcamp I entered in the demo competition together with Adi. We've had some issues in the past with (cheap) broadcasting of presentations. There are plenty of professional tools out there that accomplish this goal, but that's not my point. My point is that I have not yet found a cheap (free) utility that will allow me to give a presentation to several viewers that may not be in the same room (or the screen isn't big enough for the whole audience).

Given this background, Adi proposed we create a way in which several people can see the same thing that a broadcaster transmits. Further, the "thing" that everyone sees is actually an XNA game, that could might as well be an interactive presentation in 3D.
