An important issue in live broadcasting is to avoid playback buffer underflow. How to utilize the playback buffer and upload bandwidth of peers to minimize the freeze-ups in playback, is the problem we try to solve. In this work, we propose a successive water-filling (SWaF) algorithm for the video transmission scheduling in P2P live streaming… CONTINUE READING
