This letter describes a new packet scheduling algorithm for enhancing the quality of distributed peer-to-peer video streaming. The algorithm was designed for when streaming server peers use error recovery such as automatic-repeat-request (ARQ) rather than error protection to avoid overburdening network resources. Ant colony optimization was used for scheduling groups of packets to reflect the channel status and error recovery effect of multiple server peers heuristically. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can enhance the quality of distributed video streaming services.
