We explore the feasibility of streaming applications over DHT-based substrates. In particular, we focus our study on the implications of bandwidth heterogeneity and transiency, both characteristic of these systems' target environment. Our discussion is grounded on an initial evaluation of SplitStream, a representative DHT-based cooperative multicast system.
