Abstract

In this paper, we present a smooth channel switching mechanism for enhancing the performance and reducing traffic of distributed peer-to-peer video streaming. This mechanism is designed for a system that uses a backup link and a Predicted Link to avoid congestion among nodes. Furthermore, it provides a Preferred Keyword procedure to reduce the channel switching time while switching from peer to peer. We present the implementation design and experimental results of this proposed mechanism and conclude that the Predicted Link is efficient in reducing channel switching time.
