In this paper, we propose an efficient client-to-client streaming approach to cooperatively stream thevideo using chaining technique with unicast communication among the clients. This approach considerstwo major issues of VoD 1) Prefix caching scheme to accommodate more number of videos closer toclient, so that the request-service delay for the user can be minimized. 2) Cooperative proxy and clientchaining scheme for streaming the videos using unicasting. This approach minimizes the client rejectionrate and bandwidth requirement on server to proxy and proxy to client path. Our simulation results showthat the proposed approach achieves reduced client waiting time and optimal prefix caching of videosminimizing server to proxy path bandwidth usage by utilizing the client to client bandwidth, which isoccasionally used when compared to busy server to proxy path bandwidth.
