Distributed coordination for scalable multi-source multimedia streaming model


Multimedia contents are distributed to peers in various ways like downloading in peer-to-peer (P2P) overlay networks. A peer which holds a content, even a part of a content can provide other peers with the content. Multimedia streaming is more significant in multimedia applications than downloading way. We discuss how to support the multimedia streaming service by using multiple contents peers. In our distributed multi-source streaming (MSS) model, a collection of peers in parallel transmit packets of a multimedia content to a requesting peer to realize the reliability and scalability without centralized controllers. Even if some peer stops by fault and is degraded in performance and packets are lost and delayed in networks, a requesting peer receives every data of a content at the required rate. We discuss how to synchronize multiple contents peers to reliably and efficiently deliver packets to a requesting peer
