The popularity of video sharing over the Internet has increased significantly. High traffic generated by such applications at the source can be better distributed using a peer-to-peer overlay. LiveShift combines both live and on-demand video streaming -- while video is transmitted through the peer-to-peer network in a live fashion, all peers participate in distributed storage. This adds the ability to replay time-shifted streams from other peers in a distributed and scalable manner. This technical report describes an architecture, a mesh-pull protocol, and a set of policies that support the envisioned use case enable. User-focused evaluation results show its effectiveness and limits in terms of quality of experience.
