Live P2P Video Streaming Framework

State: completed by Stefan Zehnder

The main focus of this thesis is to design and implement a P2P platform for streaming of live video using multiple description coding (MDC). MDC is a mechanism that can improve the robustness of a P2P video streaming platform by splitting the original stream into multiple substreams, sending these substreams on different paths to the receiver and then recompose the original stream at the receiver. The main benefit of using this mechanism is the possibility to continuously view the stream even in cases of sudden disconnection of nodes that participate in the stream propagation.
