The different start video broadcasting is a new approach to improve the service of P2P video streaming applications. This approach allows unpunctual users to view broadcast programs from the beginning during server broadcast time. This paper proposes the non-cluster and cluster model for different start video broadcasting. The buffer management and mathematical model are proposed to estimate the performance of non-cluster and cluster model. These models are based on an application layer MESH network. These models are composed of five processes: peer join/leave, peer exchange information, peer selection, buffer organization and segment scheduling.
