The aim of this study is to improve the quality of service (QoS) for peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming media system with the proposed peer selection strategy. P2P technology is promising for large scale streaming media files distribution over the Internet. As peers contribute their resources over multipeer transmission paths, it is particularly challenging to achieve consistently high streaming QoS such as low start-up delay, low jitter, low packet loss ratio, and high bandwidth assurance. Recently,

In this paper, a novel P2P streaming media peer selection strategy based on mobile agent and trust (MATPS) is proposed. The proposed approach is compared with bandwidth first peer selection strategy (BFPSS), GridMedia's peer selection (GridPS), trust-based peer selection strategy (TrBPS), and SmartPeerCast peer selection strategy (SPCPS), and the simulation results show that the proposed strategy improves the streaming QoS.
