On the impact of quality adaptation in SVC-based P2P video-on-demand systems

P2P Video-on-Demand (VoD) based on Scalable Video Coding (SVC) (the scalable extension of the H.264/AVC standard) is gaining momentum in the research community, as it provides elegant adaptation to heterogeneous resources and network dynamics. The major question is, how do the adaptation algorithms and designs affect the overall perceived performance of the… (More)
