Media streaming services have been much more popular nowadays, and these services consume lots of network bandwidth. Peer-to-Peer(P2P) technology has been employed in the streaming systems to save the server bandwidth consumption and enhance the system scalability. In a P2P streaming system, the quality of the data scheduling scheme will largely affect the server stress that being saved. In this paper, we present our optimal data scheduling scheme to achieve both server stress minimization and fairness among users when the playback continuities of the users are guaranteed. The data scheduling scheme we proposed is based on the maximum network flow problem, and it is proved to be polynomial. Simulations also show that the time consumption for the computation of the optimal scheduling is acceptable, and the result of the scheduling also achieves small node degree bound which makes it practical.
