Abstract

See full text

A layered media stream may be distributed via a managed server and a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. At least one base layer typically provides a lower-quality media stream, while one or more enhancement layers provide improvements to the media stream. A managed server may provide a base layer to clients. The managed server may also provide enhancement layers through the P2P network. The availability of the enhancement layers may provide clients with an incentive to participate in the P2P network. In some cases, when demand for the media stream is low, the managed server may provide all layers to clients in a traditional client-server network model. When demand for the media stream is high, the managed server may provide only the base layer, making enhancement layers available via the P2P network.
