High definition video is defining a new age of Peer-To-Peer (P2P) video streaming over the public Internet. Simultaneously achieving a resolution-scale upgrade, e.g., providing 1Mbps streaming to a commercial scale of customers, presents new challenges. In contrast to previous measurement studies that crawl commercial applications like a black box, the authors present a new approach: fine-granular, controlled experiments on a configurable P2P streaming system that has been designed, implemented, and deployed by the same team that carried out the measurement study.
