This document surveys a number of popular Peer-to-Peer streaming applications on the Internet. The Architecture and Peer Protocol/Tracker Signaling Protocol description is our main focus., We study well-known P2P streaming systems, including Joost, PPlive, and other popular existing systems, and we summarize a common P2P streaming process model and its correspondent signaling process for use in the P2P Streaming Protocol standardization effort.
