Abstract

Recently, streaming systems with Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology have attracted much attention and are changing how we watch movies. In P2P streaming systems, a peer that plays the movie receives data from other peers. By playing the received data sequentially, the user can watch the entire movie from beginning to end. In conventional methods, by receiving the first chunk of data sequentially from a peer with large bandwidth, the waiting time is reduced effectively. However, they do not consider the case where heterogeneous peers deliver data to multiple peers. In this paper, we propose a method to reduce the waiting time for selecting peers on P2P streaming by selecting peers considering the available bandwidth. Our evaluation shows that our proposed method reduces the average waiting time 62.5% more than conventional methods at maximum.
