Overlay Multicast is an effective method for optimal utilization of system resources and network bandwidth without a need for hardware customization. It is an effective method of providing Personal Internet Broadcasting Service for better Quality of Service to many users. In this paper, we propose a multicast tree that uses Local Swap method. In order to prove the effectiveness of the new technique suggested here, using the proposed method and personal internet broadcasting service, information is abstracted, compared and analyzed under various overlay multicast algorithm conditions. We have proved that the suggested local swap technique is more effective by comparing it with other existing techniques in various methods such as using various overlay based multicast algorithm simulation.
