Just on Windows, Joost is now on Mac

Joost has been ported to the Apple Mac platform. The Mac version is derived from the Windows version, looks like it, “while behaving very much like a Mac application”, says the Joost blog. The Linux version is still absent.

For the record, Joost is a peer-to-peer video client backed by Skype’s founders, Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis. We recently listed 15 facts and features of the video client and its developer company. For instance, we now know its core shares the same code as Skype and Kazaa modules and the rest is build using the Mozilla Firefox set of functions.

Us: When we tried Joost for Windows as a beta tester, the software displays correctly video contents and didn’t take our bandwidth down. There are some work to do about the navigation, which we think is a bit confusing due to the redundancy of the same contents from section to section. This might evolve soon, as the company will include other TV channels.
