Future broadcast network concentrates on IPTV (Internet Protocol TeleVision). The main hurdle in IPTV is streaming of audio and video signals. A number of commercial systems are built to study and analyze the behavior of live streaming of audio and video signals. Peer-To-Peer multiplexing (P2P) provides a good solution for this problem. In this paper, a variation of P2P multiplexing is proposed which is called as receiver based P2P multiplexing. To analyze the performance of the proposed multiplexing techniques the very famous European network "Zatto" is considered. This paper also describes the network architecture of Zatto and uses the data collected from the provider to evaluate the performance of the proposed variation in P2P multiplexing.
