Broker Based Content Distribution For P2P Assisted Multimedia Sharing In Online Forums
An online forum is a powerful tool for sharing information where the user can communicate with people who have the same or similar interest. These days, multimedia contents (e.g., images and videos) are shared to a greater extent in the forums as attachments. As a result of increasing number of people paying attention to share more and more multimedia contents, server-client model has begun to fall short to meet the increasing need of bandwidth and storage resources consumption. So, it is advantageous to develop a method to enable forums to share multimedia contents in an efficient, low-cost and user-friendly manner.
