	att_abstract={{Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems have evolved from being used for file sharing to
delivering streaming video on demand (VoD). The policies adopted in P2P VoD,
however, have not taken user viewing behavior --- that users abandon videos
--- into account. We show that abandonment can result in increased
interruptions and wasted resources. As a result, we reconsider the set of
policies to use in the presence of abandonment. Our goal is to balance the
conflicting needs of delivering videos without interruptions while
minimizing wastage. We find that an Earliest-First chunk selection policy
in conjunction with the Earliest-Deadline peer selection policy allows us
to achieve high download rates. We take advantage of abandonment by converting
peers to ``partial seeds''; this increases capacity. We minimize wastage by using a playback
lookahead window. We use analysis and simulation experiments using real-world
traces to show the effectiveness of our approach.holistically and improved upon.}},
