VoD System: Providing Effective Peer-to-Peer Environment for an Improved VCR Operative Solutions
Video-on-Demand (VoD), a popular multicast streaming application needs to provide media streams with at most no delay especially for VCR operations in a peer-to-peer (p2p) environment. This can be achieved by combining the Static Full Stream Scheduling (SFSS) with data managed using Earliest Reachable Merge Tree (ERMT) to service the admission control requests at the Request-Schedule-Server (RSS), which lies between p2p clients and Media-Stream-Server (MSS). Further, the system environment is highlighted for practicable solution for VCR operations with the Ant-Based Search technique (ABS) incorporated in each peer that, heuristically gets the interactive-request video clips from the proximity which is highly efficient enough to trade off maximum delay during interactivity. Moreover, the set-up is very reliable in larger scale. The simulation results endorse the validity for inclusion of a separate schedule server with high caliber peers to handle VCR operations more advantageously.
