We design a peer-to-peer technique for single-source media streaming. This technique allows the media server to distribute content to many clients by organizing them into an appropriate tree rooted at the server. This application-layer multicast tree has a height O(logN)where N is the number of clients, and a node degree bounded by a constant. This helps reduce the number of processing hops on the delivery path to a client while avoiding network bottleneck. Consequently, the end-to-end delay is…

In Zigzag, the multicast tree has a height logarithmic with the number of clients, and a node degree bounded by a constant, so that the end-to-end delay is kept small.

On the frame forwarding in peer-to-peer multimedia streaming

Through simulation, it is shown how the proposed forwarding mechanisms based on frame synchronization and aggressive old frame management schemes can effectively reduce frame loss.

Peer-to-peer based multimedia distribution service

A novel framework for multimedia distribution service based on peer-to-peer (P2P) networks in which hosts self-organize into groups based on a topology-aware overlay, aimed at improving media delivery quality and providing high service availability.

This paper builds a P2P streaming video service in which multiple peers co-operate to serve video segments for new requests, thereby reducing server load and bandwidth used and shows the playback latency using SVP2P is roughly 1/4th of the latency incurred when the server directly streams the video.

A Fast Algorithm for Construction of Minimum Delay Multicast Trees in P2P networks

A novel algorithm is proposed that can be used to construct the minimum delay multicast tree considering nodal bandwidth constraints and provides considerable improvement over the current proposed techniques.

Video delivery technologies for large-scale deployment of multimedia applications

Three complementary research approaches are described: server transmission schemes using multicast, streaming strategies with application layer multicasts and proxy caching techniques, which discuss pros and cons of these technologies and provide the observations on current business solutions.

Issues Concerned with Multimedia Content Streaming Over a Peer-to-Peer Network

An analysis has been made on several solutions and techniques by exploring different aspects in the domain of Peer-to-Peer Multimedia Streaming to guide and motivate the ongoing research in a better direction to tackle the challenging problems like video on demand and to improve the current multimedia streaming protocol.

P-chaining: a practical VoD service scheme autonomically handling interactive operations

A service scheme based on chaining, in which clients as well as the server provide streaming services, which reduces server workload significantly and can support frequent VCR operations without incurring significant overhead in the server workload.

Interactivity And User-heterogeneity In On Demand Broadcast Video

In VOD System it is desirable to provide the user with the video-cassette-recorder-like (VCR) capabilities such as fast-forwarding a video or jumping to a specific frame, where each video and its interactive version are broadcast repeatedly on the network.

Dimensioning the capacity of true video-on-demand servers

Results indicate that for a medium to high number of users performing VCR operations the number of channels required to achieve target levels of quality-of-service is lower for systems with no pool of reserved channels than it is for system with such a pool.

Streaming Live Media over a Peer-to-Peer Network

This work proposes a basic peering infrastructure layer for streaming applications, which uses a redirect primitive to meet the challenge successfully and shows that SpreadIt provides a good quality of service, which degrades gracefully with increasing number of clients.

Distributing streaming media content using cooperative networking

This work considers the problem that arises when the server is overwhelmed by the volume of requests from its clients, and proposes Cooperative Networking (CoopNet), where clients cooperate to distribute content, thereby alleviating the load on the server.

Scalable application layer multicast

A new scalable application-layer multicast protocol, specifically designed for low-bandwidth, data streaming applications with large receiver sets, which has lower link stress, improved or similar end-to-end latencies and similar failure recovery properties.
