Considering the long start-up delay and load unbalance, based on the relation model between user behavior and peer selection, a Peer Selection algorithm based on Tolerance and Behavior Capacity (PSTBC) in P2P streaming media system is proposed. First, tolerance of requested streaming media data is computed and sorted. Second, the behavior capacity of the peer is computed according to the user online time. Then request peer selects the peer which has the best behavior capacity as provider. Simulation results demonstrate the validity of the designed algorithm.
