This document presents a survey of popular Peer-to-Peer streaming applications on the Internet. We focus on the Architecture and Peer Protocol/Tracker Signaling Protocol description in the presentation, and study a selection of well-known P2P streaming systems, including Joost, PPlive, andother popular existing systems. Through the survey, we summarize a common P2P streaming process model and the correspondent signaling process for P2P Streaming Protocol standardization.
