Peer To Peer networks are quickly becoming a new foundation for future internet applications; however no one has applied a P2P paradigm to that of streaming continuous media. One of the key aspects of the future internet will be multimedia rich environment where video and audio streaming is common place between many different people. These services however have not appeared due to many technical problems. This report researches and designs a new concept for adapting existing P2P techniques and applying them to a streaming context to provide a faster and more reliable transport medium for streaming media. If this system works as expected anyone regardless of bandwidth could stream video to thousands of hosts without loss of performance, all by using the receiving peer’s bandwidth to help transmit the stream.
