Executive Summary

The combination of Scalable Video Coding and Peer-to-Peer networks is a potential area of innovation in terms of video streaming on the Internet. Applications for sharing files, such as BitTorrent, have been broadly developed and nowadays they cater for the majority of the Internet traffic, adding the need for the exploration of real-time streaming services based on these networks. Several Peer-to-Peer streaming techniques have been deployed, but very few explore bandwidth adaptation, support of diverse terminal and computational setups, adequate incentives for contributing in a multi-source streaming environment or maintenance of a stable perceived video quality.
