The lack of good enough media data scheduling algorithm, result in long startup delay and poor continuous playback problems in the P2P streaming live system. This paper presents a push-pull data scheduling algorithm, in which the use of nodes' upload capacity is maximized. With the real-time characteristic of the live system, pull mode plays an important role to help solve the continuous playback problem when the push mode is mainly used, which makes the play of the media recovery in the shortest time.
