P2P streaming has attracted much attention recently with promises for higher revenues and better load distribution. Still, the majority of P2P video streaming systems today employ the one-size-fits-all concept where the same video bit-rate is offered to all users. Here the promising H.264/Scalable Video Coding (SVC) standard is seen as a necessity in not only supporting heterogeneous resources, but also in reducing the impact of P2P dynamics on the perceived Quality-of-Experience (QoE). In this demonstration we present our streaming application that uses SVC to adapt to different user requirements and resources. The application employs a novel QoE- aware layer selection algorithm that maximizes flexibility through SVC while taking impact on QoE into consideration.
