The volume of multimedia data, including video, served through peer-to-peer (P2P) networks is growing rapidly. Unfortunately, high bandwidth transfer rates are rarely available to P2P clients on a consistent basis, making it difficult to use P2P networks to stream video for on-line viewing. In this paper, we develop and evaluate on-line algorithms that coordinate the pre-fetching of scalably-coded variable bitrate video. These algorithms are ideal for P2P environments in that they require no… CONTINUE READING
