This paper presents a novel chunk selection strategy for peer-to-peer video streaming, called enr-first selection policy, which simultaneously considers both block rarity and playback deadline. The policy intends to boost overall network-wide streaming performance, while ensuring good playback continuity of individual peers. The efficacy of the proposed scheme is validated through our performance evaluation study that demonstrates a substantial gain.
