Scalable resilient media streaming
We present a low-overhead media streaming system, called SRMS (Scalable Resilient Media Streaming) that can be used to scalably deliver streaming data to a large group of receivers. SRMS uses overlay multicast for data distribution. SRMS leverages a probabilistic loss recovery technique to provide high data delivery guarantees even under large network losses and overlay node failures. The clients in the SRMS system are able to interoperate with existing media streaming servers that use RTP for data transport. One of the interesting features of SRMS is that it can simultaneously support clients with disparate access bandwidths. It enables the necessary bandwidth adaptations using standard Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) mechanisms, e.g. RTP translators. We have implemented and evaluated the SRMS system in detail on an emulated network as well as on a wide-area testbed with up to 128 clients. Our results show that clients using SRMS achieve high (¡ 97%) data delivery ratios with low...
