A peer-to-peer (P2P) network is composed of large number of peer computers which are cooperating by exchanging messages in networks. In multimedia streaming applications, multimedia data is required to be efficiently and reliably delivered to processes in a real-time manner. In order to support scalable and reliable multimedia streaming service, we newly discuss a multi-source streaming way where multiple source peers transmit packets of multimedia content to each peer. Each of the source peers transmits different packets with some redundancy to the peer in order to be tolerant of some number of faulty peers and packets lost.
