Peer-To-Peer (P2P) file sharing has become increasingly popular, accounting for as much as 70% of Internet traffic by some estimates. Recently, the authors have been witnessing the emergence of a new class of popular P2P applications, namely, P2P audio and video streaming. While traditional P2P file distribution applications target elastic data transfers, P2P streaming focuses on the efficient delivery of audio and video content under tight timing requirements. In these applications, each node independently selects some other nodes as its neighbors and exchanges streaming data with neighbors. In this paper, they propose and investigate a full distributed, scalable, and cooperative protocol for live video streaming in an overlay peer-to-peer network.
