             Peer-to-Peer Streaming Tracker Protocol (PPSTP)

Abstract

   This document specifies the base Peer-to-Peer Streaming Tracker    Protocol (PPSTP) version 1, an application-layer control (signaling)    protocol for the exchange of meta information between trackers and    peers.  The specification outlines the architecture of the protocol    and its functionality; it also describes message flows, message    processing instructions, message formats, formal syntax, and    semantics.  The PPSTP enables cooperating peers to form content-    streaming overlay networks to support near real-time delivery of    structured media content (audio, video, and associated timed text and    metadata), such as adaptive multi-rate, layered (scalable), and    multi-view (3D) videos in live, time-shifted, and on-demand modes.
