Adaptive Layered Multimedia Streaming Over the Peers with Low Bandwidth
Multimedia streaming among peers are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative communication paradigm to transport stored video. Most of the research on peers multimedia streaming has focused on two questions: "How to form a network of cooperative peers?" and "How to locate a piece of multimedia content in that network?" Most applications in networks exchange files among peers (e.g., Napster), the actual delivery of content in a peers network has received little attention, because it simply requires a file transfer between two (or more) peers.
