Abstract—Providing the quality video content in P2P IPTV services, it is agreed that have good neighour selection algorithm can improve a service quality. Content distribution requires a high performance overlay structure to deliver satisfying quality of service (QoS). Good neighbours can vastly influence the QoS of the application running on those peers. Recently, peer selection algorithms are mainly based on delayor bandwidth, such parameters that vary by time may not specify peer quality. Hence, we have proposed an improvement of peer selection algorithm by evaluating quality of video content delivered using end-to-end measuring approach. We calculate the video time delay from buffer map of each peer which can reflect the target peer quality in the system perspective. Also, we consider each peer in the new joining peer perspective by paying attention to the path from each peer to the new joining peer. With this algorithm, we can discover the real proper and good neighbours which can provide a good service to a new joining peer.
