Peer-To-Peer (P2P) streaming systems have become popular in recent years. Several Peer-To-Peer systems for streaming have been deployed recently. The challenges for P2P streaming have been on its scalability and video viewing quality. Peer-To-Peer (P2P) streaming tries to achieve scalability and at the same time meet real-time playback requirements. Both require efficient utilization of resources in P2P networks.
