A framework for multicasting layered video using replicated servers is proposed. The advantages of combining server replication, layered video and multicasting techniques in the same streaming architecture are analyzed. An efficient server selection algorithm, called WLP (weighted layers protocol) is based on a selection function that takes into consideration the importance of each video layer and client-server distance is proposed. Multimedia applications need efficient QoS techniques for… CONTINUE READING
