Building an efficient transcoding overlay for P2P streaming to heterogeneous devices
Dongyu Liu, Fei Li, Bo Shen, Songqing Chen
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2089085.2089087

With the increasing deployment of Internet P2P/overlay streaming systems, more and more clients use mobile devices, such as smart phones and PDAs, to access these Internet streaming services. Compared to wired desktops, mobile devices normally...

ISP-friendly P2P live streaming: A roadmap to realization
Zhijie Shen, Roger Zimmermann
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2089085.2089088

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications generate large amounts of Internet network traffic. The wide-reaching connectivity of P2P systems is creating resource inefficiencies for network providers. Recent studies have demonstrated that localizing cross-ISP...

Quality of data delivery in peer-to-peer video streaming
Xiaosong Lou, Kai Hwang
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/2089085.2089089

QoS in a P2P video streaming system is evaluated in three stages: content generation, data delivery and video playback. We use jitter-free probability as the main performance metric to study Quality of Data delivery (QoD). A new model that...

Diagnosing network-wide P2P live streaming inefficiencies
Chuan Wu, Baochun Li, Shuqiao Zhao
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/2089085.2089090

Large-scale live peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming applications have been successfully deployed in today's Internet. While they can accommodate hundreds of thousands of users simultaneously with hundreds of channels of programming, there still commonly...

Auction-based P2P VoD streaming: Incentives and optimal scheduling
Chuan Wu, Zongpeng Li, Xuanjia Qiu, Francis C. M. Lau
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/2089085.2089091

Real-world large-scale Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Video-on-Demand (VoD) streaming applications face more design challenges as compared to P2P live streaming, due to higher peer dynamics and less buffer overlap. The situation is further complicated when we...

Providing hierarchical lookup service for P2P-VoD systems
Tieying Zhang, Xueqi Cheng, Jianming Lv, Zhenhua Li, Weisong Shi
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/2089085.2089092

Supporting random jump in P2P-VoD systems requires efficient lookup for the “best” suppliers, where “best” means the suppliers should meet two requirements: content match and network quality match. Most...
