In this paper we consider the problem of real-time streaming of IP packet video over Peer-to-Peer networks (P2P) from multiple senders to a single receiver. P2P networks are characterized by a potentially large and highly dynamic population of hosts that join and leave the network frequently. We present the design and evaluation of a quality adaptation streaming mechanism in a multi-source streaming to a single receiver. Multimedia streaming is a real time application so, the main challenges in the design of this mechanism are (1) selection of senders peers nodes; (2) stream switching among the peers; (3) optimizing video quality by active measurements of links; and (4) enhancing the overall Quality of Service (QoS). Our key technique to provide quality adaptation is based on active measurements of network links and selection of sender peers to enhance the overall throughput. We used video traffic organized as MDC (Multiple Description Coding) layers, which provides high error resilient. Our simulations results using ns2 show that our solution allows to efficiently utilize available network bandwidth of sending peers and allow maximizing streaming qualities at the reception peer.
