This document presents a proposal for an HTTP-based P2P streaming Peer Protocol, outlining the requirements, functional entities, message flows, formal syntax and semantics, with detailed message processing instructions using an HTTP/XML encoding, the respective parameters, methods, and message formats. The PPSP Peer Protocol proposed in this document extends the capabilities of PPSP to support adaptive and scalable video, for Video On Demand (VoD) and Live video services.
