Abstract

The growing interest in multimedia applications can cause bandwidth scarcity problem in server-client based architectures, making P2P a promising alternative. Bit-Torrent is one of the most popular P2P solutions and there have already been propositions to tune it for video streaming. In this study, a torrent based P2P video streaming solution is used. scalable video coding (SVC) streaming is realised in an adaptive video streaming framework. Moreover, we evaluate two most well renowned SVC codecs namely MPEG SVC and Wavelet based SVC and compare their rate-distortion performances both before and after video streaming. Extensive simulations have been performed to investigate the effect of increasing number of layers in SVC.
