In this paper we consider the problem of real-time streaming of IP packet video over Peer-to-Peer networks (P2P) from multiple senders to a single receiver. P2P networks are characterized by a potentially large and highly dynamic population of hosts that join and leave the network frequently. We present the design and evaluation of a quality adaptation(More)
Peer-to-peer (P2P) paradigm has recently gained tremendous attraction and is widely used for content distribution and sharing. The future multimedia communication applications have to support the user’s needs, the terminal capabilities, the content specification and the underlying networking technologies. They should be network-aware, topology-aware, and(More)
The wide adoption of the P2P networks for the deployment of IPTV services at large scale seems very fascinating. However, it has started exposing the other side of canvas that is not acceptable for the provisioning of QoS for P2P applications. It is even more frustrating for the ISPs due to inefficient utilization of network resources. In this paper, we(More)
Recent growth of the multimedia content delivery over the Internet and the popularity of the peer-to-peer (P2P) architecture have opened new horizons for emerging novel services over the Internet. Currently, most of multimedia services are being offered to the end users by using set-top boxes installation on the client’s premises, with integrated media(More)
In the last few years, we have witnessed a rapid growth of multimedia content delivery across the networks. Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks are considered as one of the most suitable targeted infrastructure for supporting real time streaming and has played vital role in this growth. IPTV service is considered as the emerging application that has a great(More)
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks have proven to enable large-scale content distribution over the Internet thanks to peers organization in overlays. However, real-time content delivery such as live and video on demand (VoD) streaming applications requires significant consideration in term of peer organization to provide concurrent users with adequately satisfying(More)
Our concern in this paper is the real-time streaming of IP packet video. We consider the scenario where we have multiple senders that stream the same video to single receiver over Peer-to-Peer networks. We propose an adaptive scheme for video streaming over P2P network that encompasses an efficient mechanism for the selection and the maintenance of sender(More)
Query by humming (QbH) is a technique that is used for audio content retrieval. Many QbH systems are based on a feature of humming comparison to audio files, which can be further improved by accompanying other approaches along with humming. In our study, we propose a Hybrid approach of QbH and Metadata search system as audio files retrieval. The proposed(More)
The massive exploitation of P2P networks and the deployment of the video streaming services is bringing significant challenges for the service providers and leading to the network efficiency problem to utilize available network resources. In this paper, we propose an ISP-driven P2P framework that enables the better interaction among the ISPs and the P2P(More)
In this paper, we present an admission control mechanism for video streaming driven by Service Provider (SP) over P2P networks. SP-driven P2P network is a network in which service provider has a comprehensive control over contracted resources utilisation. SP assures the coordination and the creation of overlay P2P network and it is responsible for admission(More)
