This paper proposes a scalable video delivery scheme, named P2PVD, for large-scale video-on-demand applications based on the emerging peer-to-peer structure and characteristic user behaviors. Two types of orders are permitted in P2PVD: reserved and urgent. Reserved orders are encouraged with a lower price policy, which smoothes the network traffic and reduces the server load. The requesting peers use delay-aware dynamic parallel transmission to serve the reserved and urgent orders, and supplying peers employ three priority rules to increase the capacity of P2PVD. Experimental results indicate that P2PVD is scalable.
