Spotify presentations

I've given a few presentations on Spotify and our P2P protocol. Here are the slides from one of those talks, with an abstract from another occasion.


Spotify is a peer-assisted music-on-demand streaming service offering a large library of licensed music for rapid playback. Spotify service is available in 12 countries and has over 10 million active users. Streaming is done from a server-assisted peer-to-peer network, where our servers help guarantee availability and keep latency down, while the P2P network helps by offloading our servers.

In this talk, I will give an overview of, and describe some details of, the Spotify music streaming protocol.
