What is media encoding?

If someone tells me that the media is encoded in a proprietary way, does that mean that the data payload is encrypted?

I have a question - why P2P application UUSEE is hard to be detected in a network. I am wondering if it has got to do with media encoding..

    It's not necessarily encryption.  This page lists a number of the common media formats that music and videos can be encoded with.

    "UUSEE is a P2P (Peer to Peer) TV sharing program and it's only in Chinese, what makes very difficult to understand menus and options."  Unless you read Chinese of course.

    It does require a program to be installed on the computer that is sharing the stream so you could look for that.
