    The fundamental advantage of peer-to-peer (P2P) multimedia streaming applications is to leverage peer upload capacities to minimize bandwidth costs on dedicated streaming servers. The available bandwidth among peers is of pivotal importance to P2P streaming applications, especially as the number of peers in the streaming session reaches a very large scale. In this paper, we utilize more than 230 G... View full abstract»

    In recent years, there has been significant interest in adopting the peer-to-peer (P2P) technology for Internet live video streaming. There are primarily two reasons behind this development: the elimination of infrastructure support and the self-scaling property of P2P systems. The success of our system Coolstreaming represented one of the earliest large-scale P2P video streaming experiments. Sinc... View full abstract»

  • Inferring Network-Wide Quality in P2P Live Streaming Systems

    This paper explores how to remotely monitor network-wide quality in mesh-pull P2P live streaming systems. Peers in such systems advertise to each other buffer maps which summarize the chunks of the video stream that they currently have cached and make available for sharing. We demonstrate how buffer maps can be exploited to monitor network-wide quality. We show that the information provided in a p... View full abstract»

  • R2: Random Push with Random Network Coding in Live Peer-to-Peer Streaming

    In information theory, it has been shown that network coding can effectively improve the throughput of multicast communication sessions in directed acyclic graphs. More practically, random network coding is also instrumental towards improving the downloading performance in BitTorrent-like peer-to-peer content distribution sessions. Live peer-to-peer streaming, however, poses unique challenges to t... View full abstract»

  • Graph Based Analysis of Mesh Overlay Streaming Systems

    This paper studies fundamental properties of stream-based content distribution services. We assume the presence of an overlay network (such as those built by P2P systems) with limited degree of connectivity, and we develop a mathematical model that captures the essential features of overlay-based streaming protocols and systems. The methodology is based on stochastic graph theory, and models the s... View full abstract»

  • Understanding the Power of Pull-Based Streaming Protocol: Can We Do Better?

    Most of the real deployed peer-to-peer streaming systems adopt pull-based streaming protocol. In this paper, we demonstrate that, besides simplicity and robustness, with proper parameter settings, when the server bandwidth is above several times of the raw streaming rate, which is reasonable for practical live streaming system, simple pull-based P2P streaming protocol is nearly optimal in terms of...

  • A Comparison of Resilient Overlay Multicast Approaches

    Overlay-based multicast has been proposed as a key alternative for large-scale group communication. There is ample motivation for such an approach, as it delivers the scalability advantages of multicast while avoiding the deployment issues of a network-level solution. As multicast functionality is pushed to autonomous, unpredictable end systems, however, significant performance loss can result fro... View full abstract»

  • Push-to-Peer Video-on-Demand System: Design and Evaluation

    We propose Push-to-Peer, a peer-to-peer system to cooperatively stream video. The main departure from previous work is that content is proactively pushed to peers, and persistently stored before the actual peer-to-peer transfers. The initial content placement increases content availability and improves the use of peer uplink bandwidth. Our specific contributions are: (i) content placement and asso... View full abstract»

  • VMesh: Distributed Segment Storage for Peer-to-Peer Interactive Video Streaming

    Provisioning random access functions in peer-to-peer on-demand video streaming is challenging, due to not only the asynchronous user interactivity but also the unpredictability of group dynamics. In this paper, we propose VMesh, a distributed peer-to-peer video-on-demand (VoD) streaming scheme which efficiently supports random seeking functionality. In VMesh, videos are divided into segments and s... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present an extensive study of key dissemination schemes in an overlay multicast context, and the first to involve actual implementation, real traces, and performance in Internet environments. Given that rekey traffic has stronger resilience requirements and is burstier than data traffic, we consider whether data and keys must be distributed using the same overlay or using two sep...

    Internet worms, which spread in computer networks without human mediation, pose a severe threat to computer systems today. The rate of propagation of worms has been measured to be extremely high and they can infect a large fraction of their potential hosts in a short time. We study two different methods of patch dissemination to combat the spread of worms. We first show that using a fixed number o... View full abstract»
