Abstract

In this paper, we consider applying multiple description coding in mesh-pull P2P live streaming networks to provide incentives for redistribution. In our system, a video is encoded into multiple descriptions with each description having equal importance. We consider a heterogeneous system with peers having different uplink bandwidths. We design a distributed protocol in which a peer contributing more uplink bandwidth receives more descriptions and consequently better video quality. Previous approaches consider single-layer video, where each peer receives the same video quality no matter how much bandwidth it contributes to the system. The simulation results show that our approach can provide differentiated video quality commensurate with a peer's contribution to other peers.
