We address the question: What is the best way to construct a mesh overlay topology for multimedia content distribution, such that the highest streaming rate can be achieved? We model overlay capacity correlations as linear capacity constraints (LCC) and propose a distributed algorithm that constructs an overlay mesh which incorporates heuristically inferred linear capacity constraints. Our simulations results confirm the accuracy of representing overlays using our LCC model and show the LCC-overlay achieving substantial improvement in achievable flow rate.
