Cloud computing and peer-to-peer live video streaming are important research topics of Internet multimedia services. Due to the unstable wireless data transmission and peers' joining and leaving behaviors, users often suffer long waiting time and sudden interrupted downloads, thereby affecting the willingness to watch the online videos. In this paper, a cloud-assisted P2P video streaming system is proposed for providing smooth video streaming services to mobile users. Simulation results show that the proposed cloud-assisted P2P streaming system can provide smooth video streaming services to mobile users with low-cost than traditional video streaming approaches.
