The P2P-assisted video-on-demand (P2P VoD) service has achieved tremendous success among the Internet users. There are three core strategies in the P2P VoD system: the piece selection policy, the peer selection policy as well as the replica management policy. Different from the existing research works that only consider single policy optimization, we for the first time study the existing P2P VoD policies by using a simulation framework to understand the performance of different policy compositions. The simulation results indicate that when the bandwidth and storage resources are limited in the P2P VoD system, the composition of the sequential piece selection policy, the cascading peer selection policy and the proportional replica management policy has the best performance among all different policy compositions. However, when the bandwidth and storage resources are sufficient in the P2P VoD system, there will be little difference between different choices.
