There are two types of P2P systems satisfying two different user demands: 1) file downloading and 2) video-on-demand (VoD) streaming. An example of file downloading is the original BitTorrent, and examples for VoD streaming include various commercial P2P-based VoD streaming systems such as that offered by PPLive. We have a hypothesis - by combining a type: 1) system and 2) system as a single P2P system, both the file downloading users and the streaming users of the same video will benefit in performance. The reasoning is that at any moment, only a subset of the file downloading peers can provide good service to VoD streaming peers and the VoD streaming peers are only good at providing service to a different subset of the file downloading peers. The former subset is the set of peers close to completing the downloading of the video file; whereas the latter subset is the set of peers starting to download a video. In this paper, we propose a novel design for a mesh-based video distribution system without depending on video replication on streaming peers. We produce simple back-of-the-envelop analysis to show its effectiveness. Then, we further validate our design and compare it with other designs through simulation and experiments in practical networking environment by implementing a prototype.
