Abstract: Video transmission in peer-to-peer video-on-demand faces some challenges. These challenges include long transmission delay and poor quality of service. The peer selection plays an important role in enhancing transmission efficiency. For this reason, a proposed algorithm for peer selection is introduced to overcome these challenges. The proposed algorithm consists of four steps. First, the peers exchange their own buffer maps with other peers. Second, the requested segments are ordered according to their priorities. Third, neighbors of the receiver are evaluated by the efficiency estimation. Finally, the efficient sender list is applied to solve the overloading and bottleneck on the highest efficient sender. A simulation is introduced to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm compared to a peer selection algorithm with context-aware adaptive (CAA) data scheduling algorithm. The results show that, the proposed algorithm reduces initial buffering delay and achieves high throughput rather than CAA algorithm.
