Multimedia video sharing has been developed rapidly over the past years. P2P multimedia sharing mechanisms for P2P network such as PPLive, PPStream, Joost, have been used popularly. However, if Content Server and Client in home network have to transmit via P2P sharing, P2P network must be adopted, thus it is unable to increase the network transmission speed through this intranet connection. Although there are DLNA, HAVi, and Jini protocols in home network to share multimedia files, it cannot access P2P network due to the limitation of home network framework.
